Bizzy Bear is back!

My little boy loves Bizzy Bear and is so excited he's back. He has the book that is this app's inspiration and now it comes to life on the iPad. This app lives up to the quality of the other Nosy Crow apps though it's a bit shorter than the other books. I hope Bizzy Bear continues his adventures on iPad with more books like these.

Pretty good little app!

I waited and waited for this app to hit free and I snatched it up, when it did! I have to say, I thought it was going to be more of a story, BUT it is still a great app! The interactivity of this app will allow me to use it many different ways with young children in speech therapy. One thing I did not like was how the blue dots would just jump back and forth between people over and over and over and over. I know this was used as a cue as to who you need to touch so that person will talk, but as I said… since this isn't really a story, there is no SET dialogue that is followed and you can stay on the same page for 10 minutes bouncing back and forth between the same two people. It began to feel like a tennis match to me…. I would love to see this as more of a story so that the child has to interact based on what is read. Other than that, I think it's a great start to a great app! Thank you!

What a wonderfully interactive story!

Since their Cinderella book app is one of our favs, we had great expectations for this one and I'm happy to say that Nosy Crow exceeded those expectations with this wonderfully interactive story. Both young and old wanted a turn handling the construction tools!! Very glad to add this one to our app library.
