Last week I had the privilege of receiving and reviewing the Peter Pan: Disney Classics book app for the iPad. Before trying the app out myself, I allowed my kids to give it a go. They are 4 and 2 and the story held their attention. They chose the ‘Read to Me’ mode and as the story is read, each word spoken is highlighted.
Each page had a few interactive features that are fun to discover, but nothing overly distracting – such as turning on house lights, or making Tinker Bell fly away. The story of Peter Pan is told in a manner that kids will understand and be able to learn all of the characters. In fact, when you tap on a character their name is spoken.
There are some fun games included with this app – including puzzles. There are 4 puzzles to choose from, and 3 skill levels – easy, medium, or hard – depending on your child’s preference.
Your child can also play a memory-matching game – again with 3 skill levels to choose from.
Coloring is always a winner in our house! Choose from 4 different pictures to color using either your finger or a stylus.
The final activity is playing Peter Pan’s flute. You can play it as you like, follow along to playing instructions, or listen as it’s played for you.
All in all, this is a fun app for any Peter Pan lover. Keep in mind that it is a Book, not a game. I had seen some complaints in other reviews that it’s not as interactive as people would have expected like their other games. I felt the interaction was plenty considering it is a book, and too many distractions would have taken away from the overall story.
