Mr Tickle Storybook App Review
Mr Tickle Storybook App is a delightful digital recreation of a Mr Men children’s classic for iPad
The legend that is Mr Tickle now lives on in a new storybook which offers a near perfect digital representation of the original book, alongside a selection of carefully thought out games to keep kids amused when they are bored. These games include colouring in characters without the help of borders to create a realistic artistic environment, hitting worms in a non-aggressive way in timed levels and making funny faces using a selection of facial parts and objects. But it is in the storybook itself that the app truly shines.
The calming and perfectly paced narration complements the highlighted words to aid reading skills. From the moment the familiar music starts and Mr Tickle appears on screen, you and your children will be engrossed in the amusing storyline. In fact, it is highly debatable as to whether this storybook is best suited to children or to their parents who will most likely remember the Mr Men series with great fondness!
Every part of this app, from the charming graphics to the words make for an entertaining experience and it really is hard to fault a book that has been produced with such care. It is so good that it has the potential to introduce a whole new generation to the bizarre creation that is Mr Tickle and that is surely a very good thing.
One of the most impressive recreations of a classic children’s character we have seen.
