A little over a month ago, we released The Complete Fairytale Play Theatre – a brand new kind of app for Nosy Crow. Unlike our previous story apps, this one doesn’t have any text, or any voice audio – it’s up to you to create the story.
And today, we’re incredibly excited to announce a major update for the original edition of the app – and the launch of a second, free-to-download version of Fairytale Play Theatre, too!
With beautiful artwork from our award-winning series of fairytale apps – The Three Little Pigs, Cinderella, Little Red Riding Hood, Jack and the Beanstalk, Snow White, and Goldilocks and Little Bear – Fairytale Play Theatre features over 60 characters to choose from, along with dozens of scene backgrounds and props to bring your story alive. You can soundtrack your story with stunning music from our fairytales, along with your own voices and sound effects.
And now, with our new update, you can also save your stories as movies to share with family and friends, too!
The new, standard edition of Fairytale Play Theatre is FREE to download, and you can choose one fairytale “bundle” when you download the app – all of the characters, artwork and music from any one of our fairytale stories. You can then download other fairytale bundles with in-app purchases (carefully protected behind a parental gate) for an additional 99¢/ 79p each. Here’s what to look for on the App Store:
And if you’d prefer not to have any in-app purchases available in your app, you can download The Complete Fairytale Play Theatre edition of the app for $4.99/ £3.99, and you’ll get EVERYTHING unlocked – all of the content from all of our fairytales – with no in-app purchase on offer. Here’s what to look for on the App Store:
Create your own brand new stories, or re-tell our fairytales in your own words and voices!
The app boasts a hugely intuitive, user-friendly interface that’s perfect for young children – you can create individual scenes from scratch, save them, and build multiple scenes into a complete story. Multi-touch screens allow multiple users to create stories together – it’s a fantastic way of creating stories, encouraging imaginative play, and sharing a screen between adults and children – it’s great for storytelling activities in classrooms and at home.
Set the stage, choose your characters, and create and record your own story!
You can download Fairytale Play Theatre from the App Store here, and The Complete Fairytale Play Theatre from the App Store here. You can watch our trailer for the app at the top of this post – and here’s a quick preview of the app:
And we’d love to see the movies that you create, too! We’ll be launching a special competition next week with prizes for the best stories – keep an eye on our blog for more details.
