Educational Value

Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue - A Magical Adventure wasn't created with educational intent, and we don’t recommend it for learning.

Ease of Play

This app is easily navigated with some neat features. Arrows at the top of the screen let you turn pages, and a pages menu allows you to skip around to different pages. There is an option to auto-turn pages, but this disables interactive elements on the pages. The interactive elements include blowing on the microphone, or tapping a special icon to send fairy dust flying across the screen. On other pages, tapping on the sparkling part of the picture unveils a minor movement or enhancement of the illustration. You can also record yourself reading a page (be sure to read right into the microphone), listen to the recording, and change the settings to always use your recordings when available. Narration can also be disabled entirely.

Violence & Scariness

There are some scary moments, like the fairies almost going over a waterfall or being chased by a cat, but the fairies use their skills and ingenuity to save the day.

Sexy Stuff

Several of the fairies wear short, tight outfits with bared shoulders.

Language
Consumerism

The menu, which can be popped open on every page, includes links to purchase more games, as well as a link to sign up for an email newsletter from Disney Books.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Tinker Bell and the Great Fairy Rescue - A Magical Adventure is a shortened version of the movie with simple interactive elements. There are some scary scenes, such as the fairies being chased by a cat, but the fairies always find resourceful ways out of their binds. Preschoolers can tap to turn pages and will enjoy blowing into the microphone to send fairy dust across the screen, but the text is beyond their reading level. You can record yourself reading the text in place of the narrator. The menu button, available on all of the pages, includes ads for more games and a link to sign up for an email newsletter.

Is it any good?

In TINKER BELL AND THE GREAT FAIRY RESCUE - A MAGICAL ADVENTURE, most of the pages offer some simple interactive parts, including portions of the pictures rocking back and forth or rain pelting the screen. What is cooler is the neat microphone-based interactive elements in this book that will engage and excite young readers. It's also great to be able to record and hear your voice against the music, and blowing fairy dust is undeniably fun! This abridged version of the story makes some of the lessons about determination and friendship a bit abrupt, but it is still enjoyable.
