The accompanying app for our fun and silly children's book, Marvelous Machines. Point this app at the book and it comes to life. It is a window into a hidden world as the robots from the book come to life.

Follow an inventor as he shows you his inventions. Explore the possibilities of what can happen if you imagine and work hard. Watch out for the robot’s silly bugs, and interact with the characters, listen to the narrator, and search for secrets hidden on each page. Your kids will find a new love for reading as they experience the future of books.

This app requires a children's book in order to function completely. The book can be purchased from our website for $14.99:

The app also works with a sample page from the book. This page can be downloaded and should be printed out.

Fun, but...

The app works really well, seems to be much better than the last one at recognizing the pages.

My only complaint is that the music is way too loud. Takes away from the story. Hopefully there is a setting added soon that will allow us to adjust that.

Has a few issues

We are so excited to have a follow-up to Goodnight Lad, and expect that the few bugs with this app will be fixed soon. We can't get the app to load on our iPad Pro - it keeps crashing but works on the iPhone. However, every time we get to the part in the story where the bed grows in size, the app crashes. I bet this is coming soon, but the ability to turn music off would be great.
