The story begins with your child’s imagination with the Disney princess as their actresses and the beautiful backdrops as a stage. The app easily guides little fingers to create a story without needing the ability to read. Parents may have to give a brief overview of all functionalities but once the child is familiar the navigation is simple. A child has two options, 1) Free Play: recording her own voice, moving the characters, and 2) Story Play: creating her own story or setting up a story and listening to it by a professional narrator.
Your child will enjoy beautiful artwork as a story is narrated with each word highlighted.
In free play, the child can pick one princess or all princesses! Simply chose the background, accessories, and even beautiful music to make a royal tale. But don’t forget to hit record to tell a unique story!
Final Thoughts on Disney Princess: Story Theater
The app gets highest marks for the magical beauty to the eyes and to the imagination. My girls love every second they play with the app. I love hearing the stories they come up with. The stories can be saved so you can share them later with family and friends. Believe me, you will want to share. You will have just as much fun listening to your child’s stories as she has recording them. I normally don’t spend a dime on story apps because interest doesn’t last long but this app is worth every penny of your $2.99. Since the children can make up their own stories and listen to stories it is well worth your money and time.
