Hello graphics and hello bedtime story for toddlers! This is certain one of my favourite apps and has been voted best apps for kids winner!
This app is simply awesome and is a huge hit with both of the boys. It has a lovely little story entry to begin with about a little town that is heading off to bed and turning off all the lights (that Toby generally skips) and then you are presented with a beautifully illustrated farm house with brightly lit windows, which you have to turn off and say goodnight to the animals inside. The app also has a wonderfully soft lullaby in the back ground and each animal settles down to snooze (although they can’t wake up once you have put them to sleep) and a great narrative voice over the top.
What the boys love:
The boys love the fact that they can interact with the animals and then switch off the light and they settle to sleep. We usually play the app in the evening when we are chilling out, just after our baths.
What mummy loves:
What I love about the app is the wonderful graphics which have been designed by Heidi Wittlinger and the fact that the whole thing is so calming and sweet. It’s won app of the year, and has all sorts of accolades. The app is soothing and a great conversation starter of talking about going to sleep and bedtime. I also love the array of languages, great for encouraging a new step in learning a language, and the option to turn between winter and summer modes makes it more realistic!
P.s – this app is free, but has 2 in app purchases… fortunately you don’t get bugged to purchase them and they aren’t essential to the game, but they are well worth the £0.69 each!
