Elfishki and The Giant Cake Review
By now you all know me and the addiction I have to iPhone apps… Well, the addiction has spread to iPad apps. I know it’s similar, but there are some apps that are only meant for the iPad. This is one of those apps, but boy is it super cute. The best part about this app is that it’s for the kids so it doesn’t draw me in and steal my time from the world of kids belts.
This is one of a series of 7 interactive books from Elka Palka Productions. This is an adorable little story about the Elfishki. They are little fairy tale creatures who live on the beautiful Rainbow Island in the middle of the Sparkling Sea. They can fly like butterflies or swim like mermaids.
The illustrations are beautiful and really vivid. The animations are great for the kiddos. They get the benefit of reading, but the bonus of the interactive screens. Each page not only has animation when you touch it, but each of the fairy tales contains comprehension questions and a game to boost your child’s creativity and imagination.
Don’t fear, if your little one is too young to read, you can choose the “listen” feature and it will read the story to your little one!
Bug and Super Dude really enjoyed the game that comes with this app. This game lets your kids build the most giant unique cake ever with ingredients like peppers, candy, seafood, icing, snails, cookies, bats and candles. When they finish decorating the cake, they can take a picture of their design for safe keeping and then start over! Super Dude likes topping his with all of the creepy crawly ingredients while Bug likes to mix it up.
If you don’t have an iPad, your kids can also enjoy all of the stories online! Here is a great video to show you a little more about Elfishki!
Hope your family enjoys it as much as mine does!
