1. Claymation = awesome, 'nuff said.
2. Love hearing Gordon from Sesame Street as the narrator!! Can't believe it's still the same actor. Brings me back to childhood & the kids recognize him from TV.
3. Thank you for update to iPhone compatible. We don't carry the iPad everywhere so this is great.
4. Dough overflowing and pies flying. love.
Totally stinks - don't buy it
I bought the Monster at the End of the Book and my kids loved it so much that I thought I'd try this one too. Bad choice.
First of all the are some usability Issues - like the fact that the pages are REALLY hard to turn (doesn't recognize finger swipes well). When you do turn the page it doesn't actually turn, it just zooms in - which is way confusing to a little kid who is expecting a page turn (like in the Monster at the End of the Book app). On top of that, it's also really slow.
Finally the voices are horrible. They aren't Bert and Ernie - or even anything close. They're not even friendly sounding voices. They were freaking me out and I'm not even a kid.
And in case that's not bad enough - the app costs $2.99 which would be a lot even if it didn't stink. So until they take this app back to the drawing board save the $$ and don't buy it.
Ok but not as good
I bought this for my 3 and 7 year old who love "the monster at the end of this book" which is such a great app. Unfortunately we bought this one and it is lacking. Recommendations; add animations not just still clay pics, add ability to do things in the book/interactivity, add characters real voices...cute book but needs much more to be good and get5 stars.
