The story, read by West End star Gina Beck, currently playing Glinda in Wicked, tells kids about Timmy and let’s them join in with his favourite activities.

By touching and tapping the screen children can:
# cheer Timmy up by tickling him
# match which fruit he’s imitating
# play nursery rhymes on Timmy’s xylophone
# learn to count with his colourful balloons
# help Timmy wash up and spin-dry plates (trying not to smash them!)
# make him roller-skate (and help him up if he falls)
# discover Timmy’s enchanting costume collection
# help dim the lights so Timmy can get some rest for next time!

As well as learning and playing with Timmy children can also colour in eight different Timmy adventures. The pictures can be saved to iPhoto so parents can share their childrens' creations with friends and family on Facebook or via text/email.

Ratings and Reviews

Tickled Pink!


This is a great App! It was wonderful to see how engaged a child can become. The animation and sounds kept her attention for ages and then she loved the painting part. Turn off the telly, this works so much better.

Great app!

Miss B Boots

My two year old loves this app - the tickling part made him laugh out load! There are lots of different activities to explore and many opportunities for him to interact with what's on the screen. He found the paint option very enjoyable as well (and it's certainly a less messy option for me at those times at the end of the day when I can't face getting all the art stuff out!). Highly recommended!

Fantastic! Educational and fun!

Anno Recordando

My 3 year old loves this fun octopus! He can scroll easily between games, it is easy to use and captivating! He loves the fancy dress and the fruit, especially the sound Timmy makes when he gets it wrong! I love the fact you don't have to pay for extras :-) Brilliant Ap!
