School Library Journal review Fairytale Play Theatre

It’s been a couple of months since we released our Fairytale Play Theatre app, and we’ve been absolutely thrilled by the response it’s received – and the app has just received a great review from School Library Journal!

In their review, SLJ’s Cathy Potter calls Fairytale Play Theatre “a superb storytelling tool that encourages children to express themselves, and it’s likely to draw repeat visits from children who love to create, imagine, and perform”. You can read the full review here.

If you haven’t yet discovered Fairytale Play Theatre, you can watch our trailer for the app below. It’s a FANTASTIC creative app for both the home and the classroom – if you’re a teacher or school librarian who’s interested in using the app in school, please do get in touch.


With beautiful artwork from our award-winning series of fairytale apps, The Three Little PigsCinderellaLittle Red Riding HoodJack and the BeanstalkSnow White, and Goldilocks and Little Bear, The Complete Fairytale Play Theatre features over 60 characters to choose from, along with dozens of scene backgrounds and props to bring your story alive. And you can soundtrack your story with stunning music from our fairytales, along with your own voices and sound effects.

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.

The complete edition of Fairytale Play Theatre, with all of the content from all six fairytales, is available to download for $4.99/ £3.99 from the App Store here. And you can download a free edition of the app here – choose any one fairytale “pack” for free when you download the app, and get additional bundles of content for just 99¢/ 79p each.

Here’s a quick preview of the app:

Thank you, School Library Journal, for the great review!
