Review of Product: I thought Noah would be too old for the Pooh Birthday Surprise App but I was wrong! The reading component of the app left him wanting more and he keeps going back to the app when he is on the iPad. He said his favorite part was the ending and that he liked being able to follow along with it. He kept talking about icing the cupcakes and it took me a few minutes to realize it was the ending of the story on the app he was reading. I love how the text gets highlighted as it is read, apps like this truly are educational in nature which is reassuring when it feels like your kid never puts the iPad down! Plus who doesn’t live Winnie the Pooh?
Giveaway: The folks at Disney Digital Books have graciously decided to give five (5) lucky Nicole’s Nickels readers the Pooh Birthday Surprise App – on their choice of iPad, iPhone or iPod Touch.
