Customer Reviews

Was great but now freezes constantly

Would like to know when the makers will be releasing an update. I'm getting notifications that the app won't work with future versions of iOS. My kids both love the app (2 & 4) but it freezes half way through the story and the dress up bear game freezes at the point you take a picture

Cranky: this app half works

This app was very expensive and it doesn't even work the way it says it should. The recording function is not working at all on my iPad and the orientation seems to be stuck in one view. I am very disappointed with this I recommend nobody buys it and I am going to try and get my money back.

Love, love, love this quirky book.

My son is now 4 years old and although he is a little scared of cranky bear we know the book by heart and love it. Our favourite book by far!
