Entertaining but pricey

The stories really capture the imagination of children and there are tons to pick from on any topic you can think of. For those not happy with the standard pricing, I suggest looking at the Playtales Gold app as it offers an annual subscription model. The only difference is that after a year, you lose access to your stories until you renew.
My only concern is how slow the books load. It used to be super fast but now even with my upgraded internet speed it takes minutes. Not sure if this is a bug but I am experiencing this on multiple devices.


As everyone else did, we downloaded this for our kids. Obviously, we were caught off guard by the amount of each in app purchase. It's a bit excessive for the "lower priced" ones, but completely ridiculous for the rest of them. Maybe it wouldn't seem like such a rip off if you were upfront about the cost, like just have an "all inclusive" buy option, without the shady type business.

Excellent collection

My son and daughter absolutely love this app. Tons of beautiful interactive books with a lot of popular characters. Highly recommended!
