In anticipation of this summer’s prequel, Disney Publishing has a released a brand new app – Monsters University Storybook Deluxe! The fully animated interactive storybook is now available for $6.99 in the iTunes App Store for the iPad, iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad Mini and sheds new light on the story of the friendship of beloved monster pals Mike and Sulley.
Young readers ages 6-10 will find out how the fun-loving monster duo went from being mismatched strangers to inseparable pals by exploring original film clips featuring official character voices, interactive storytelling exercises, game activities and more. Additional app highlights include:
- Create your own Monsters University ID badge & “Monsterify” photo tool
- 3D, first-person game views and special rewards
- Read-to-me and read-on-my-own narration options
The kids and I had a lot of fun playing with the app this evening and enjoyed making our own ID badges (the kids made a dozen or so of them, see below), playing the games (I can never tilt the iPad enough to get passed the first level, but hey I’m still learning!) and of course enjoying the read-to-be narration options, too. It’s a great way to get pumped up about the movie, too. We love it!
Thanks Disney for the great entertainment once again.
