Last week we released a major update for our latest app, The Complete Fairytale Play Theatre – AND a brand new, free-to-download version of the app: Fairytale Play Theatre. In both our complete and standard versions of the app, you can now export your stories as movies and share them with friends and family!
And today we’re launching a special Fairytale Play Theatre competition – we want to see the stories that you make! Share your stories on Twitter to @NosyCrowApps with the #PlayTheatre hashtag, and we’ll award prizes to the best ones! We have apps, books and other Nosy Crow prizes (maybe even a mug or two…) to give away – and the competition is open worldwide!
Send us your stories by the end of the year to enter, and we’ll announce the winners in January.
To enter our competition and share the stories that you’ve created in the Fairytale Play Theatre App app, export your story as a movie, and then share it via the Photos app to Twitter (make sure you use the #PlayTheatre hashtag).
If you’re new to Fairytale Play Theatre, here’s our trailer for the app:
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.
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!
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:
We hope you enjoy the app! Have fun creating your own stories, and if you do enter our competition, good luck!
