JackInTheBox will play "All Around the Mulberry Bush" until it pops, then display a happy clown or an image of your choice. You can use the camera or library to add different "Jacks" to the box. Graphics were cut from construction paper as a family project and the music was done in GarageBand. I hope your family has as much fun popping it as ours did in making it.

My only complaint is that the tune does not speed up if I spin it faster.

Needs improvement

This is a great app, however going into your photo files to change the pop up becomes tiresome. Different pictures that have been chosen should pop up automatically and randomly. My 18 month old granddaughter loses interest quickly when only the clown's face keeps popping up.

Good app

I would suggest moving the spinner to the bottom of the screen so it doesn't hide the image popping up
