iPad app fun Part 2
Puppet Pals has been our latest find. For free you can access a fairytale story where you choose from one of three backdrops and choose from eight characters to add to the story. From here, all you do is start recording, move the characters around by dragging them on/off/around the backdrop, increasing/decreasing their size and use character voices to tell a story. You then stop recording, the recording is saved and you can play it back.
We have had a ball with this. We have discovered that we are a family who likes to use silly voices. We have laughed and laughed at each other's efforts.
I think we'll spend the $2.99 to get the director's access - provides a lot of different backdrops and characters. Apparently you can also add in your own photos and crop them to make them characters.
Again - brilliant for developing story-telling skills, imaginations and most importantly, great laughs!
