My Living Stories Review & 48 HOUR $25 iTunes Gift Card Giveaway! (Closed)


It should be pretty obvious from some of my recent reviews that we are an iPhone family. It allows my husband and I to be able to check out mail, communicate with each other no matter where he is or what we are doing. When we are out at doctor’s appointments, running errands or traveling, the iPhone is a heaven send. I wonder what did people do without them? Of course I try and bring coloring, toys and other forms of entertainment, but there is something more engaging about the little media screens for little ones these days. 


There are a lot of applications out there for toddlers and kids, and I think that the best ones are the stories, flashcards and activities that are interactive and get the children involved rather than zoned-out. My Living Stories are great, because they are essentially books on a digital screen, but they also have some animation and features that allow an older child to read the story themselves or follow along by having the story read in the application. A feature I wasn’t able to try, but thought was neat is recording your own voice reading the story, although you will have to have an iPhone or iPod Touch with microphone capabilities. 


I was able to get downloads of The Princess & the Pea, King Midas and The Tortoise and the Hare. I love the classic stories, which we surprisingly don’t have on book, as I always enjoy reading stories I grew up with to my daughter. My daughter already knows how to use the touch screens so this application gives her a sense of independence as she listens to the stories and watches the pictures, and I look forward to when she starts reading and can use it to aid her in learning to read as she can still use the auditory option as an aid as she is learning. 


More About My Living Stories:
The My Living Stories apps combine beautiful artwork, narration and interactive features in an easy to use platform that is perfect for preschoolers to read along all on their own, without any help.  My Living Stories are a great solution for entertaining on-the-go or as an aid for teaching children to read at home. The apps allow for your child to read along with English narration or read the storiesthemselves.  Interactive sounds and animation bring stories to life.  Another great feature is the ability to record your own voice to go along with the story (this feature requires an iPhone or iPod Touch with microphone capabilities).  My Living Story classic stories include Princess & the Pea, King Midas, The Tortoise & the Hare, Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.



I am participating in the My Living Stories program by Mom Central on behalf of Decode Entertainment. I received 3 free apps and a gift card as a thank you for my participation.
