NEW APP!
The Disney Princess Royal Salon App

RoyalSalon_screenshot_ipad_01

If your children are anything like mine, I’m sure they love playing with iPads and tablets at home. While I try my best to limit the use of our iPad with my young children, sometimes mom just needs that extra ten minutes to get a blog post done or to get dinner ready without too many distractions. Well, luckily Disney has a brand new app that will help our little ones prepare for a royal ball some of their princesses will never forget (while letting mom finish her work, too!)

Let’s face it, Kate Middleton has set the bar high when it comes to royal beauty. In fact, her perfectly styled, long, lustrous locks recently put her at the top of women’s wish lists when asked what female celebrity’s hair they most envied. Kate has found her “happily ever after” in Will, but because every girl wants to look her best in the event her Prince Charming lie in wait, Disney Publishing’s created the Disney Princess Royal Salon app, a brand new tool which truly puts beauty in the eye of the app holder.

With the new iOS app available today for $4.99 in the iTunes Store, it’s up to users to ensure Belle, Cinderella, Ariel & Rapunzel look their very best before heading off to an invite-only party.

Aspiring princesses can select the girls’ hair color, style, outfit, and more, mixing, matching, and using their creativity to piece together the perfect enchanting combination. The possibilities are endless and the memories are easily preserved and shared – simply save creations to the app’s scrapbook & email to friends & family.

While trying the app for the first time over the weekend, my children loved it and even I had a little fun creating new outfits and picking out accessories for some of our favorite Disney princesses. I was surprised to see how flexible the app was to really place your selected jewels anywhere on the princess and play with new hairstyles, too. Plus, my kids loved playing with it, too. I think we’ve got another favorite app here! Thanks, Disney!

MONSTERS UNIVERSITY
Storybook Deluxe App Review

MUSBD_iPad_EN_01

I am THIS excited about seeing Monsters University this summer! I can remember seeing the original Monsters Inc. at the movies with my dear friend John so many moons ago (10 years to be exact) while thinking, “Why am I seeing an animation film?” (I was 21 at the time) and completely fell in love with it instantly. I can’t believe we’ve been made to wait this long for the next Monsters film!

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.
