iPad App Review - Bus To Booville

~ Posted on Friday, October 19, 2012 at 5:57 PM ~

When I saw the press release of this app, I immediately requested to review it as my 3.5 years old boy is into skeleton and spooky stuff at the moment. Anyway, my review as below...

"All aboard the bus to Booville! This funny app is sure to charm a smile out of your own little ghost or goblin! In Bus to Booville, a bus driver gets spooked when he picks up ghosts, witches, and skeletons on Halloween night, but after he drops them off at the party, we learn that HE's a little monster, in disguise all along! Bus to Booville is a part of the Auracle line from Auryn Inc. The app is based on the book by the same name, written and illustrated by Wendy Wax."

* It is engaging and interactive and I love the navigation features (Home button at top right corner and Pages at bottom left corner)

* When I saw the counting of skeleton, ghosts and witches, I immediately make use of the opportunity to reinforce to my boy on his counting (even though it is just 1 to 3). I made him count how many skeleton, ghosts and witches figures.

* I can see my boy enjoying this story app as he is into pretend play lately and he smiles when he sees the above screen when all the children showing their actual face instead of the disguises.

* As for the concept of Halloween, we don't celebrate that in our family but I don't think that should be a stopping point or something that I should not be exposing to my child, at least I want him to know there is such celebration in other place and there is nothing to be afraid of.
