Quality

Brief in-app instructions are included in the app, but are not necessary before getting started. The target audience for the app is kids aged 2 to 5. Children as young as two will have no problems using the app as the interface is easy to use for all ages.

Everything about this app is top quality, as we have all come to expect from Oceanhouse Media. The narration is warm and friendly, the images are cute and cuddly, sounds and music are fun, making this app a true delight. Inserting your photos is easy and quick.

Education

Cuddly as a Bunny is a short book with a rhyme on each page. Words highlight during narration. Narration can be repeated by touching any word. Unfortunately, there is not an option for muting narration without muting all sound in the app.

Each page of the book contains some interactivity. Some objects need to be dragged, others just require a touch. The associated sounds and music are a pleasant surprise.

Use existing photos from your camera roll or use your device’s camera to take new ones for use in the customization of the book. Either way, photos are easy to include, size, and rotate for use. The customized pages contain a button for sharing; email, save to photos or print. The pages are super cute and kids will love seeing themselves as a bunny, kitten, puppy or lamb. The special picture frame at the end of the story is just as precious.

Entertainment

Kids are able to repeat this book an endless number of times. If you customize the app using multiple photos, they will change with each use. Interactivity adds cute little elements of entertainment to this lovely app. You can touch or drag objects to see what they will do and hear the sounds they will make.

Value

Cuddly as a Bunny offers great priced entertainment for young kids. Little kids love looking at pictures of other kids and will be thrilled to have their photos included.

Some minor differences exist when using this universal app on the iPad vs. smaller screen devices; such as you are able to include eight photos on the iPad and four on smaller devices such as the iPod. I like that you can add more than one photo; a good thing for families with more than one child. It is fun, too, to have your child make different faces to make the pictures a bit silly.

Child Friendliness

There are two links to be aware of; an external link on the main page and a ratings pop-up. Both items should be moved to the information menu where the other developer information is already located.

Users of all ages are bound to enjoy this app as they use their photos to customize this special book.
