STAR IN YOUR OWN CARTOON in this creative, award-winning app!

Kids and adults alike love the simplicity of puppeteering and voicing characters while creating movies to share.

Simply pick out your actors and backdrops, drag them on to the stage, and tap record. Your movements and audio will be recorded in real time for playback later.

This app is as fun as your own creativity. Act out a story of Pirates on the high seas, fight as scary monsters, or play the part of a Wild West bandit on the loose. You can even combine any characters however you want!

Your creations are only limited by your imagination!

- Create an actor from a photo
- Use a photo as a backdrop for your storytelling
- zoom and rotate your characters using two fingers
- flip them around with a double tap
- a wide variety of creative characters to download (including famous talk show hosts and politicians)
- limitless possibilities of story creations

IMPORTANT: This adds no additional functionality to the Director's Pass that can be purchased from the free version of Puppet Pals. This is an unlocked version with no in-app purchases, which makes it easier for schools to purchase this app to use in their classrooms. If you already own the free version of Puppet Pals, and have purchased the Director's pass, just keep enjoying that one :)

The Finest Publishing Animation App For Elementary Kids

I am an educational technology specialist, and Puppet Pals HD is, hands down, the finest app for publishing animated versions of student work. Students can take photos of their own drawings and record their voices as their pictures move around the screen. It's great for biographies, facts and virtually any project may have been a poster, paper or presentation once upon a time. This one is absolutely essential for all educators. It's easy to use and super intuitive to use... even for year olds.

Puppet Pals

Bought this on a whim to entertain my kids on a road trip. Wasn't expecting much based on reviews ... what a pleasant surprise to find out just how fun it was --- not just for the kids, but for the grown ups too!
I have no other apps like this to compare it to, but it kept everyone entertained. Being able to add our own "characters" from photos made it more personal and just added to the fun.
Honestly don't know who enjoyed the silliness more --- the kids or mom & dad.
