What parents need to know

Educational value

Kids can read along with the story; text is highlighted as it is spoken by the narrator. There are also jigsaw puzzles, coloring pages, and memory games.

Ease of play

The app is very simple to use, even for younger kids -- both the storybook and the games.

Violence & scariness

Some illustrations show cars in danger (such as tied to the gears of a giant machine), and one scene shows Finn McMissile shooting a missile from his headlight at the bad lemon cars following him.

Parents Need to Know

Parents need to know that the Cars 2 Storybook Deluxe is an interactive, read-along book app that tells a simplified version of the Cars 2 movie plot. In it, Mater becomes accidentally recruited as a spy to help stop the plot of a villain bent on global domination. The book glosses over the violence in the film, showing only one car shooting a missile, and doesn't show any cars getting hurt. The app also features games, puzzles, and coloring pages. Be aware that one section of the app asks if you want to join a mailing list.

QUALITY

The CARS 2 STORYBOOK DELUXE app offers a nice way for younger kids to get the story of the Cars 2 film sans most of the guns and bombs. Of course, reading the book may just make them want to see the movie. This book app, though, is quite good, both in its function as an interactive book (there are some fun animations and gravity tricks) and its bonus games, which include a Simon-Says-style memory game and a physics-based tire toss game, in addition to jigsaw puzzles and coloring pages.
