It’s hard enough getting to sleep without worrying about getting your little ones to do the same. Nighty Night Circus is your soothing secret weapon: an animated, illustrated interactive storybook with a cast of charismatic animal characters and a magical lullaby that twinkles in the background.
The circus setting is a colourful dreamscape, where your child will meet a kingdom of animal friends, each clamouring to show off their special tricks. Tap to cue them up: the little bear can make balloon animals; the elephant can balance on one leg; the lion plays with a ball like an oversized kitten.
Once they’ve demonstrated what they can do, flick the light switch or blow out the candle to start them snoring – and encourage your little one to do the same. There’s also an autoplay mode.
More than just cute, the characterful illustrations are brought to life with breathtaking detail. And no wonder: the artist Heidi Wittlinger, is an Oscar-nominated creator. There are 11 characters to bring to life, and narration in more than 16 languages, including English, French, Spanish, Chinese and Russian.
Parents know bedtime is all about routine: incorporate Nighty Night Circus into your evening and your child will soon be calmer and better prepared for sweet dreams. Plus, the animations are so enchanting – they might even ask to go to bed early. A parent can dream…
