Imagine your favorite book came to life on your floor and asked you to play a part in the story! Wonderscope is an award-winning iOS app for kids that uses augmented reality to transform ordinary spaces into extraordinary stories. Through your Wonderscope, you can see the story take place all around you, whether you open the app in your room or outdoors. Read your lines aloud to engage with and talk to characters, and help them solve problems along the way.


New York Magazine:
“For parents with younger kids, I’ve got at least one thing that could assuage some of that guilt about screen time: Wonderscope.”

“What if you could give your child an iPad for an hour and not feel guilty about it?... an app that makes kids smile and feel confident as they read absolutely feels like a win.”

Fast Company:
“Because kids look through the iPad to see the story on the other side, Wonderscope won’t close them off to the outside world.”

“To get a sense of Wonderscope, imagine if Snapchat filters or Pokemon Go went to work at Pixar after graduating from Juilliard.”

“The future of storytelling is happening all around us — we just have to look through the right lens to see it.”

Common Sense Media:
"It feels almost magical to watch as suddenly animated characters and scenery pop up all around you as part of ... engaging stories."

WIRED, regarding Wonderscope story Clio's Cosmic Quest:
"It might be the best 8-minute astronomy lesson out there."

More stories please! The children love this app and is guaranteed fun for all the family, even the older ones who can be a bit jaded were enchanted by the totally immersive app. The stories warrant being played again and again due to the different positions of the phone as you watch it and being able to walk around the story set!
Waiting excitedly for the next new stories!!

Cool game and nicely done

Highly interactive short stories in an AR style that you move through holding your device while also reading aloud in order to progress. It works pretty well and the production is really high. great on an iPad. The stories are quite expensive but you can see how much work has gone in to each one so I think it’s fair. A couple of the stories are a bit odd but my eight year old loves them. It’s about equivalent to buying a short picture book each time I guess. Each one takes about 10 minutes to play/read/watch. Definitely unique and impressive use of the latest tech.

Great work for a whole team who invent and done this amazing app. I can’t wait for more stories. For people who thing 5 pound it’s not a cheapest offer but a sure u is worth it, and thing how much 5 pounds u spend for silly thing, this one will give u more benefits for ur kids in future.
