Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Safari

What do you get when you cross a zebra with an antelope? Why, a zebelope, of course! What about a buffalo with a flamingo? Well, that would be a buffingo, naturally!

The follow-up to the hugely popular Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Farm, this app features eleven brand new poems and animal artwork from Axel Scheffler, the UK’s best-selling illustrator. With 121 possible combinations, silly names and animal noises to make you giggle, this hilarious rhyming app is perfect for pre-schoolers.

Swipe any part of the screen to create new animals and hear the poem read aloud, with original sound effects, safari music, and text highlighting.

Like the app? You’ll love the book! Axel Scheffler’s Flip Flap Safari is also available in an ingenious split-page, spiral-bound board-book format. Little readers will adore flipping Axel’s animals again and again to see what crazy creatures they can create – and to find out what strange noises they make too! Find out more about the book here.

“Second in the Axel Scheffler Flip Flap series of apps (the first featured farm animals) this is another excellent bite-sized starter app that is also an excellent language enrichment experience. The fonts and text highlighting make it a noteworthy reading experience”

– Children’s Technology Review

“Accompanied with a peppy jungle rhythm, this playful app is great for any age but will appeal to the younger crowd with its simple finger swipe and speedy shuffle action. Your sure to find giggling fun as you create unique and fascinating animals with your child.”

– The iPhone Mom

“It’s silly in all the best ways, and as usual, Axel’s illustrations are marvellous (and instantly recognisable). It’s a must-have for any animal-mad preschooler, not to mention their parents.”
