Review:

“Goldilocks and the three bears”  is a charming, animated story that is interactive and  based on the traditional fairytale that we all knew and loved as children.  It is narrated by a by a little boy’s voice.  The  animated is rather charming.  This cute take original kids’ tale  teaches young children about size and comparison as well.  It follows Goldilocks all the way from where she is picking flowers in the woods, even though she was forbidden to do to, all the way to when she is running out of the three bears’ house.

Gold 3

When Goldilocks meets the bears, they make neat noises when you touch them.  However, they are not happy about the state of their porridge bowls, or their chairs.  Your child gets a chance to make baby bear happy again by fixing the chair that is broken.  Your child can fix the chair by doing a puzzle.   The angry bears wake Goldilocks in ways that allow your child to have have some interactive fun!  It woke up my napping husband.  That was rather amusing.  In, what is a great lesson, they also have her clean up their house for all the trouble she has caused them.
This is neat interactive story, with a great amount of interactivity.   The app have no in-app purchases, no advertisements,  and no customizable settings.  I would recommend this app.  I think it is most appropriate for younger children, but some kids who are a bit older might like as a bedtime, or winding down, story-time activity.

It took 10 months but to be honest working around school runs and school holidays meant it took longer than we had imagined.
