My girls absolutely love playing the I-pad, especially Leah. We were really excited when we were asked to review the app called Playtown. Playtown app is available for free download on itunes or on Google Play for free! It includes 3 Adventure Play Sets and additional play sets can be purchased for $1.99 each.
Leah really enjoyed trying out the recording part of the app. Basically you pick a background that has a couple characters and you do voice overs! She thought it was hilarious to talk in Pirate talk and to act like the Parrot! Charlotte also really enjoyed doing the dress up part. She didn’t quite understand everything but with a little help from Leah they both had tons of fun!
What I really liked about the Playtown My Story Maker App is for one that it’s free and it allows my kids to be super creative in their own way. It’s a great app to get kids to love creating things outside the box and make up their own stories!
“PlayTown: My Story Maker is a wonderful new app for kids, ages 3-9.
The PlayTown: My Story Maker app allows kids to create, personalize and narrate stories while bringing their imagination to life! Children have rich imaginations, and it’s the responsibility of a parent to help nurture, encourage and reinforce their children’s’ creative expression. An active imagination can help develop certain life skills such as communication and problem solving. Here’s how PlayTown works:
- Begin your story by selecting an Adventure Play Set; play sets can range from traveling to playing sports to even exploring outer space!
- My Story Maker invites you to create and build adventures, select your own stages, props, accessories and cast of lovable characters—such as princesses, monsters and jungle friends—and even use personal photos and drawings!
- When completed, see your creation with the play back feature and share with family and friends within the app.
- PlayTown is FREE to download for Android (https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=kr.co.tk.skt.playdoll) and iOS (http://itunes.apple.com/app/id473909588) and includes 3 Adventure Play Sets. Additional play sets can be purchased for $1.99 each.” (Playtown website)
