Quality

Teddy is Missing is a cute storybook app that is easy to use and lots of fun. The lively narration and interactive images are great for keeping young minds engaged and the ability for children to select the path of the story is even better. The set up is easy to use and quite intuitive so readers can easily move through the app without trouble. The developers have done a nice job with the illustrations as well as the sound effects to create an overall creative experience for children to enjoy as they read.

With that said the transitions and response to user touch on the interactive images could use some work. Some of the pages load a bit slower than others and their is often a lag in reaction time for some of the interactive illustrations.

Education

The developers have included some fun mini-games that provide children with a bit of educational practice as they move through the different paths of the story. These include connect the dots, matching colors, a puzzle, etc. that will help children get some practice with their problem solving skills.

Adding a few extra reading options would help enhance the educational value of the app. Adding simple text highlighting and read to me/read to myself options would allow readers to practice their reading skills while enjoying this creative storybook app.

Entertainment

This app is full of highly entertaining bits that children will love. The story itself is very engaging and has a magical feel with the witch that has stolen Teddy. The ability for readers to select the story path adds a fun twist to the typical storybook app and gives children the freedom to enjoy the story on their terms. Each interactive illustration, storyline, and image included has fun sound effects and narration to add more interest to this highly entertaining story.

Value

Priced at just under three dollars this app is a great deal. In addition to the fantastic story, alternate story paths and fun interactive illustrations throughout, the developers have included mini-games within each story path to add more value to the app which is great. Overall this is an app that parents will certainly get their money’s worth as it will quickly become a family favorite.

Child Friendliness

The developers have done a good job making this app easy to use for children of all ages. With simple arrows at the bottom of each page and magical sparkles to indicate an interactive image, readers are able to easily move through the app without a lot of trouble or instruction. The transition from page to page could use some work as there are some pages that load a bit slower than others and the touch response for the interactive images could use a bit of work as well.
