Willie’s Bone | interactive storybook app with games for kids
iPad, iPhone & Android app | storybook app for kids | ages 3-6 yrs.+
We are especially thrilled to be introducing you the cute and colorful storybook app for kids with the little dachshund Willie, as we ourselves, also have an almost 1 year old Wiener dog named “Banjo”.
“Willie’s Bone” comes with various games and puzzles for kids to discover and play, whilst listening to the story of Willie and his lost bone. The app is recommended for kids aged 3-6 years + the perfect age where many children want to have a dog.
Willie also has a very cute friend, the pug named Paul. Paul helps Willie on his journey to find his bone, which Willie had buried somewhere on a farm but forgotten where. The story is told on 19 interactive pages. They both meet many farm friends on the farm, which kids are introduced to, in an educational way.
This way for example, kids learn that horses used to help people working in the fields. They even learn the difference between a stallion and a mare in a fun and educational way.
Professional narrators have given Willie’s friends their friendly voices, so that the app can also be used as a picture book app for toddlers and younger children too. The text can be dragged and displayed on the page sideways, this goes for all pages, after all the story can also be used as a bedtime story, which you as a parent probably prefer to read out to your children yourself.
One very special feature about this strong kids app has to be the embedded mini games. Children can train and demonstrate their retentiveness and concentration in five tasks of this app, by answering simple questions about the story. Which color did the tractor have with which the farmer helped Willie find his bone? There’s also a little maze which needs to be solved by kids. What a nice little extra and also that the answers vary. That way, different fruits can hang on the trees or the farmer might drive a different color tractor.
The games are played outside of the actual story, many puzzles from the pictures of the book can be puzzled and solved as an extra activity for kids. These are also suitable for kids aged 3-6 years and the puzzles are divided into either 6 or 12 parts.
The vibrant illustrations were given some very nice interactive animations. The mini games also have some animations for kids to discover. Not only the mouse cheeps once it’s found also the cat waves, but many other animations are waiting for kids to be explored in the beautiful and colorful pictures.
Another great feature can be referred to from the iTunes description:
“Story with interactive elements on each page. To practice prepositions of place, such as on, under, next to, between etc. there is a mouse hidden in every screen. The illustrations may be used to create an own story. This can help children to improve their speech development.”
Willie’s Bone is a remarkable storybook app for kids with an educational well-conceived structure.
