Thumbelina Magic Story #HoliDazeGiftAway


Remember when you were little and you'd read storybooks? And remember how stoked you were when those books were pop up books? Fast forward today. Storybooks are digital and interactive! They have motion, music and sounds that bring the story to life.

That's where Thumbelina Magic Story by PogrArt comes in. This iPad app is so much fun! It is an interactive story of the classic Thumbelina. It actually has a pretty rockin background soundtrack (no seriously, there are guitars!). The characters don't talk or read the book to you but what happens is really spectacular.

On certain pages of Thumbelina Magic Story things move or make noise when you tap on them. Actually some things move on their own. It was fun to tap around the pages and see what moved or made noise. See the video after the rafflecopter to see what I mean. On one page the flowers were like piano keys. On another page when you tapped on the door there was a knocking sound. And so much more!

The only problem I would say is that I was tapping my iPad to death in hopes stuff would move. There was no real indication or warning that something would move or not. There are some pages where nothing moves at all. But I still tapped around to make sure.

Playing with Thumbelina Magic Story made me feel like a kid again. My eyes lit up every time something moved or sang. I was drawn into the story. For my geekier friends think of it like an interactive comic. You had pictures that added to and helped to tell the story. So much fun!

You can join in on the fun! Below is a giveaway to win your very own copy of Thumbelina Magic Story for iPad. The giveaway starts NOW and ends November 28 at midnight EST. Many will enter 2 will win. Rules are in the rafflecopter and when in doubt go HERE.
