iPad App Review - What Was I Scared Of?

~ Posted on Monday, October 8, 2012 at 6:38 AM ~

We do not celebrate Halloween but when I saw this app title, I thought of Ben. He is into spooky things on and off and I thought what better way to spook him more hahaha... At first, I was actually spooked after reading this story app for the first time without Ben as nowadays I prefer to vett through the apps before I let him have a go at the apps and was wondering whether my boy could take this kind of story. Anyway, my review as below...

Description from the product page:

"Perfect for Halloween or any time of year, this story delivers a timeless message about fear and tolerance. The tale begins with a character who repeatedly meets up with an empty pair of pale-green pants. The character is initially afraid of the pants, which are able to stand on their own despite the lack of a wearer. However when he screams for help and the pants also start to cry, he realizes that "They were just as scared as I!" Putting fear in the proper perspective, the empty pants become good friends with the character."

What's good?

* It is engaging and interactive and I love that we can also touch the objects in each page on the screen and the words pop out to tell you what it is!

* I like the storyline where it tells how the main character (I tell my 3.5 years old boy that it is a bear) met a pants that can move and how they both got scared of each other and in the end became friends!

* To my surprise, my boy loves this app! We go through this almost every day once! He likes to be spooked! Hahahaha! But seriously, what I hope to impart on my boy is there is no need to be fearful of anything, God will protect us and to remain calm in all situations, even find the funny side of things!

*** Update 8th Nov 2012: My boy can tell me back the story of this app (of course not word by word - but he got the storyline right!) Coolness! Also shows how much he goes crazy for this app! :D
