A Must Have
This is the creativity app that everyone needs on their iPad. It will be the dream app for early childhood and special needs teachers, children of all ages love it, and I can’t think of too many adults who won’t enjoy making felt scenes either. There are so many backgrounds, characters and items, and you can save your scenes too, which is a big bonus for my kids as they like to go back and work on scenes they have created earlier. What I love is that you can have unlimited pieces, and they never go missing! This is one of my favourite apps EVER.
This is a really fun app. It's fairly intuitive and works like a felt board. It is handy that you can glue things together, though it felt weird putting the glue on top of what was being glued down! I found the drawers with bits and pieces works well and didn't take up too much of the screen. I did find though that when trying to scroll within a drawer, the app kept selecting items rather than scrolling so I had lots of unwanted items on the board that then needed to be put in the recycle bin. Having a recycle bin was a nice touch, too. Perhaps a slender scroll bar along the drawers, when opened, would help? Thanks.
The Nostalgia i felt when first opening this app was overwhelming , But would it be the same as when i was a child ?
it is and better as there are no losing of pieces or getting glue all over my hands! ,
It is an easy to use app where my kids can bring out their creativity ,
I have found myself arguing on who is next to use this app .
My daughter and i have spent hours together using it to make our own magical worlds . Easy to use interface , Lots of different things to use in as many ways as you can think of the sky is the limit !
And unlike the old felt board you can take a picture of your creation before you move into your next . A definite must for any child and parent!!.
