Entertaining but pricey

The stories really capture the imagination of children and there are tons to pick from on any topic you can think of. For those not happy with the standard pricing, I suggest looking at the Playtales Gold app as it offers an annual subscription model. The only difference is that after a year, you lose access to your stories until you renew.
My only concern is how slow the books load. It used to be super fast but now even with my upgraded internet speed it takes minutes. Not sure if this is a bug but I am experiencing this on multiple devices.

Great if you need to entertain kids for a little while

Downloaded this app a while ago to help keep my young cousins entertained while babysitting. Think of it as iBooks for little kids-all of the books in are one place after you open the app and they all download into a visible shelf library so you aren't messing around on your iPhone to find a particular story. I downloaded Momotaro for my cousins since part of the price goes to Japan. It was a cute story, even the music drove me a little bonkers. I wished there was a way to tell which part of the graphics in the story were interactive; I just had my cousins poke around the entire screen until all animations were exhausted.

As everyone else did, we downloaded this for our kids. Obviously, we were caught off guard by the amount of each in app purchase. It's a bit excessive for the "lower priced" ones, but completely ridiculous for the rest of them. Maybe it wouldn't seem like such a rip off if you were upfront about the cost, like just have an "all inclusive" buy option, without the shady type business.
