Sometimes an iPad/iPhone app’s illustrations are so lush that I’m a little lost for words. I could see myself featuring this app just for the imagery, even if the functionality wasn’t so hot. But, luckily, Little Fox Music Box ROCKS. And I kind of mean that literally. It is, after all, a music app.
Birdie is at the perfect age – 3 years old – to sing along with these songs, each sung in a lovely arrangement with adorable little kids voices so she feels right at home. Two of the songs are near and dear to us – Old MacDonald and London Bridge (with ALL the lyrics! I LOVE knowing all the lyrics!) but the third, Evening Song, is less familiar. That creates a nice mix of “learning” for both of us. The fourth area, Fox’s music studio, is chock-a-block full of little animals/objects that each make some very … unique … sounds. Hilarious. All three song scenes – and the music studio – are filled with hidden activities to touch and fiddle with. Birdie and I were fighting over them the first time we opened the app! But the best part is hearing her little voice spontaneously burst into song. Sometimes – just sometimes – she’ll even let me sing along with her.
I’ve already reviewed Nighty Night previously, and this developer – Shape Minds and Moving Images - is now right up at the top of my list of favorites. I need to catch up with all of their apps! But for now – they’ve reduced the price of Little Fox Music Box to $2.99, click over and get it now! (it works on both iPads and iPhones)
