iPad App Review & Giveaway - Elfishki and the Giant Cake

~ Posted on Saturday, January 7, 2012 at 11:03 AM ~

I received an email from Pavel Mamaev the creator of Elfishki Series of Interactive iPad Books asking whether I would be interested in reviewing their app and after checking out the video preview (the app was due to be released few days after that) I decided I have to review the app! The exciting colors and illustrations on this app is just so inviting and alluring! And the game that comes with the app where you get to create and decorate your own cake, wow, I just had to let my boy try it out! Anyway, my review as below...

Description from the product page:

"Elfizz was an owner of a gloomy restaurant named Chest of Ghosts where the staff was eager to please ghosts. On the opposite side of the square was a bakery, Gingerbread Nook, run by a pretty plump Elfishki lady called Maggie. The two were at odds with each other until one day they had to work side by side... 

Here's what you find in the app:
1. Original, not found anywhere else captivating texts, designed to develop your child’s conscious reading skills - according to the Common Core State Standards for English Language Arts.
2. Stunning interactive art, classic animation and videos.
3. THREE(3) Questions on every page of the book specifically designed to help your child analyze the text, boost their imagination and make predictions about the story.
4. A bonus game specifically designed to boost your child’s imagination - Decorate the Cake - where you can save and share your child’s fantastic creation. "

What's good?

* The illustrations of this app are amazing! Love the vibrant colors and the interactive play.

* I like the storyline where it tells how 2 bakers were at odds with each other and then ended up working together, each with their own strengths and capabilities and make a successful cake together!

* There is 1 particular page which got Ben's attention and he played it over and over and over again! It's where the bat hanging upside down accidentally dropped a strawberry when you touch it. My boy just loves the hilarity of it!

Elfishki and the Giant Cake

* I like the game that came with this app where you can create and decorate your own cake, cute and naughty wise  and even choose to add some default text on the cake picture - great for sending over as an e-card to someone!! Anyway, Ben enjoys decorating his own cake, check out his cake below:  Elfishki and the Giant Cake

Room for Improvement?

* I am not sure whether it is my iPad or the app which is slow but when I tried emailing the picture of the cake we created, it took a few seconds to load the picture onto the email draft.
