A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

The app uses fingerswipes to turn pages, but in the pop-up elements, users must use the arrows at the bottom of the page to progress, which might confuse some of the youngest users.

Violence & Scariness

The witch taking a couple's baby and the banishing of Rapunzel might be scary to very young children.

Sexy Stuff

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking

What parents need to know

The story tells the Grimm Bros. fairy tale in an easy-to-understand fashion and has several active features in the pop-up elements that let young players participate in the story, instead of simply sitting passively and flipping the pages.

Is it any good?

Grimm's Rapunzel - 3D Interactive Pop-up Book is a superb interactive version of the classic story that features all of the bells and whistles you would expect. Users can have the story read aloud to them (with them choosing the pace of the page turns), read it themselves, or watch the story in autoplay fashion. The pop-up elements not only let children explore the pages at their own pace, but also offer tasks to complete, such as planting and watering seeds to grow flowers or picking flowers. Young children will love the story, which is less frightening that many other Grimm fairy tales.
