"Personalize and play fun, educational stories and activities starring members of your family"
CREATE AND PERSONALIZE THIS STORY APP AND THEN SEND IT TO YOUR LITTLE RASCALS
- Download the app for free
- Decide who you want to receive this personalised interactive adventure
- Add your picture and see yourself incorporated as a starring character in the story
- Choose how you want to be referred to and hear how the soundtrack changes too
And then, when you are happy with how the story looks, make a small in-app payment (using your Apple iTunes account) so you can share the story with other family members.
There's absolutely no obligation to buy - so we'd encourage you to have a play and try it out, and if you like what you see, only then will we ask for a token payment.
At that point we then generate a 'smart-link' that you can pass on digitally (via email), or, if you choose, we can send download instructions on a personalized postcard to your chosen recipient anywhere in the world - all at no extra cost.
"Shakespeare & Saddlebags" is a fun, animated, interactive adventure (based on fact) about a theatre troupe travelling around the west coast of America during the Californian Gold Rush - hoping to get rich putting on Shakespearean plays.
As they head for the hills to impress the prospectors, you get the chance to become part of the story, helping the actors rehearse and perform, but things don't quite go according to plan.
That's where the kids come in. When you send them their own personalized version of the app, they'll have to complete challenges and crack clues throughout the adventure, to help your character save the day. And at the end they get to make a digital poster for your forthcoming performance.
