What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Grimm’s Rumpelstiltskin - 3D Interactive Pop-up Book is, as the name suggests, an interactive pop-up book. The story tells the familiar Grimm fairy tale, but doesn’t make any changes or modernization to the language – which could make it a bit hard for younger kids to understand. The princess is presented as an object, without any say in her fate or choice of husband, althought that’s true to the original story.

Is it any good?

Grimm’s Rumpelstiltskin - 3D Interactive Pop-up Book brings the digi-novel to children, not only telling the classic story, but adding interactive pop-up elements that children will love to play with. The art is very well-done and the presentation is well-paced. The current version of the app, though, lacks a few features -- most notable, it does not read the story aloud. Children or parents will need to do so (and the dense language of the Grimm Brothers may slow some kids down). An update is being worked on, though, that developers say will add narration – and could boost the app’s educational elements.
