You will need 3-D glasses in order to see the story in 3-D (you can also choose to see it in 2-D). Any red/blue 3-D glasses can work, if you already own a pair, but if not, they can be purchased for about $3.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that 3D Storybook - The Wrong Side of the Bed in 3D! is a read-along picture book that can be viewed in either 2-D or 3-D. To see pictures in 3-D, you need to wear old-fashioned red lens/blue lens 3-D glasses (you may already own a pair from a previous 3-D book or video game). If you don't own them, though, you will need to order them online for a separate fee. For about $3, you can either get one sturdier plastic pair or several cardboard pairs. The book itself, written and illustrated by Wallace Keller, is a whimsically inventive and kid-friendly plot about a boy who wakes up one morning to find that the entire world is upside down (or he is).

QUALITY
 

You don't need 3-D glasses to enjoy 3D PICTUREBOOK - THE WRONG SIDE OF THE BED IN 3D! The old-school red/blue 3-D effects work pretty well and add (sorry for the pun) a new dimension to the reading experience. Even in 2-D, though, kids can definitely enjoy the cute story and fun illustrations with neat little interactive bits and animated spots. But what kid is going to be satisfied with a 2-D viewing when the 3-D aspect of the app is just sitting there, enticing them to pop on a pair of cardboard glasses. Luckily, if you've got red/blue glasses sitting around at home, you can use them here (polarized 3-D glasses from recent theatrical movies won't work with the app). If you need to buy, though, there are multiple purchasing options, including one that will get you 10 pairs for $3, which is not bad at all.
