Digital Learning Through Play with the My Little Pony App
I don't know about you, but I loved My Little Pony when I was a little girl and that fact that my girls do too makes me a little warm and fuzzy. I knew they would be excited when we were offered the chance to review the My Little Pony: Party of One HD app from PlayDate Digital through Mosaic Reviews.
About the My Little Pony App
My Little Pony: A Party for One is a storybook app for children 4 and up, based off of an episode from the animated series "My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic" from Hasbro airing on The HUB TV network. The cartoon quality app is licensed through Hasbro Inc and presents a story of friendship with favorite ponies including Pinkie Pie and Twilight Sparkle.
There are 17 scenes in the story that come to life with characters and words for the children to tap and explore. While having fun reading along and interacting with the My Little Pony story, children will work on reading, vocabulary and social skills. Parents can even track individual progress in the app with a parent reporting feature that shows how much of the story the child has completed and how many words she may have clicked on.
Like I Said, My Girls LOVE It!
They are already huge fans of the animated series on The HUB so My Little Pony Party: of One quickly became their favorite new app. They story is engaging enough that they have played it over and over again and they really enjoy (especially my 5 year old) tapping on the characters to play out the full scene.
I'm really looking forward to more apps from PlayDate Digital in the future. Few developers manage to get storybook apps right, but they have. The graphics are really crisp and cartoon like, the voices are clear and not choppy and they really did make it engaging enough to make kids interested in coming back for more.
