Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Grimm's Red Riding Hood ~ 3D Interactive Pop-up Book is, like you might expect, an interactive pop-up book. The app tells the famous Grimm's Brothers story, but takes some liberties with the story (such as the wood cutter is introduced as a frog, who has been transformed by an evil witch). Like the original story, though, there are some violent elements in this version. The wolf eats two characters whole and is eventually cut open with scissors and killed. Still, the story is told 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 flipping the pages.
Is it any good?
GRIMM'S RED RIDING HOOD ~ 3D INTERACTIVE POP-UP BOOK is a mouthful of a title, but it's also a rich storybook app that children will enjoy tremendously. The app takes a few liberties with the traditional story, but that makes it a bit more accessible by kids, and like other apps by the developer, it's wonderfully illustrated and filled with fantastic interactive pop-up pages. This time, though, those activities are integrated into the story, making kids feel like they're part of the tale being told.
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. It has more violent elements than other children's stories, but they're muted enough that kids won't be frightened.
