For children who love music and musical apps this one is great. Not only are there 6 different instruments to play with the band, but users can actually manipulate the volume and speed of the band music by moving the characters from side to side or up and down. If they want to take a particular character out of the music for a moment, they can tap the character twice and their musical contribution will be muted. As children are using their musical creativity to make their own beautiful music, they can also tap and touch the other various illustrations to hear some eery Halloween howls and screams that add a ton of character to this app.
Priced at just under two dollars Stella and Sam Halloween Band is a very good deal. Not only do children have the opportunity to use their creativity in a free-play musical setting, but they have a variety of sounds and instruments to try out as well. For the musician in your home this app could easily become a favorite especially around this time of year.
Parents can rest assured knowing that this app is not only easy to use but also safe. With no social media links or in-app purchases, children can play and create music until their heart is content without getting unnecessarily distracted. There is a link to another Stella and Sam app on the main page that is protected so parents can rest assured knowing that children will be safe playing this app.
