Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that Moo, Baa, La La La! is an interactive version of the classic board book by Sandra Boynton. Like the book that inspired it, the app is aimed at toddlers. They can read the book with or without narration, and can hear individual words spoken aloud when they are tapped. There are lots of interactive hotspots for kids to find as they explore the pages, and tilting the device also creates some small movements on the page.
Is it any good?
The board books of Sandra Boynton are famous for being quick hits of creative whimsy for toddler, and MOO, BAA, LA LA LA! does a great job of recreating that classic Boynton feel in an interactive app. The unique presentation lets kids see an actual photo-realistic copy of the board book on their screen, creating a very familiar feel for toddlers. Only this time around, they get to hear every animal sound for real (even the odd and off-key ones). And they get to play with the animals through fun and imaginative animations, including ones that bring new animal characters popping into the scenes. Like the book that inspired it, the app is short and can be over quickly, but toddlers love repetition, and this is an app they'll want to play with again and again and again.
