"I wondered who was going to get pop-up books right, and [StoryToys] wins by a long shot. I recommend this app quite highly and know that little ones will come back to it again and again. Great work all around!"
~ David Winograd, TUAW

"StoryToys has near-brilliantly rethought children's books. This application evolves the very concept of what a story can be."
~ Jeremy Horowitz, iLounge

“Every page keeps the reader wanting more. The interactivity of the pop up pages is superb.”

“Stunning. If I had to sum up this app in one word it would absolutely be stunning.”
