Egmont are celebrating! Their Classic Winnie-the Pooh app has reached over 200,000 downloads since it’s release earlier this year. This app is priced at £1.99 and is available for the iPhone and iPad.
The first Winnie-the-Pooh story by A A Milne, that I ever read to Monkey was Winnie-the-Pooh and Some Bees and as that is currently available with the Classic Winnie-the-Pooh app, I was eager to see what Monkey thought. He recognised the story straight away. As he is only just 4 we picked the ‘read to me’ version, but for older children, you can select the ‘read myself’ option.
You can also touch the various characters and watch them move in this great app for children aged 4-8 years.
With the Classic Winnie-the-Pooh app you have the opportunity to buy Pooh Goes Visiting and Gets Into a Tight Place, Tigger Comes to the Forest and has Breakfast and The World of Winnie the Pooh, for £1.99 each or you can buy the 3 as a bundle for £3.99.
The World of Winnie-the-Pooh which offers essential background to the stories:
– Read biographies of A.A.Milne and E.H.Shepard, together with original photos of them and their work
– Swipe the screen to see how scenes from Ashdown Forest and much more developed from the real world to sketches and E.H. Shepard’s final pieces of artwork
– See photos of Christopher Robin Milne’s toys and the Sussex countryside that inspired the tales of the Hundred Acre Wood
We’ve enjoyed using the Classic Winnie-the-Pooh app, it’s a lovely way to enjoy stories of one of our very favourite bears.
