In our home library of movies Monsters, Inc., is one of our favorite movies that we watch over and over again. We are very excited about the sequel coming out this summer! I just love the idea that monsters are afraid of children and we just love Sullivan and Mike! This week Disney-Pixar re-released their hit animated feature Monsters, Inc., in 3D, and are now offering Monsters, Inc. Storybook Deluxe for the iPad, iPhone and iPod Touch and even iPad mini.
In the app, kids join Sulley and Mike on their quest to return Boo back to her home, while also trying to keep her out of sight of course. The app features the original character voices as well as movie clips. The app allows you to discover hidden “Scare Cards” throughout the story which allows you to navigate your way through a Monster’s Incorporated scare simulator training rooms to collect “scream energy” in a new game. You just have to tilt the device to avoid the human or “toxic” items. Every time you miss the obstacles you get points. If you’ve seen the movie you might remember that the monsters thought that humans and their toys were dangerous. Once you are in the child-simulator’s room – you get to roar to your hearts content. You have the option of using your child’s voice and can record their screaming and roaring skills that makes for a fun interactive activity. My daughter and I had some laughs as we each practiced our scariest yells to see how much “scream energy” we could get in the yellow container.
We really enjoyed playing this game together. Disney has provided dandelion moms with some codes to enjoy and we will have a Raffecopter Giveaway coming up!
Note: I was provided a promo code to review the storybook app but all opinions are my own!
