Classic Winnie-the-Pooh app – a review

Classic Winnie-the-Pooh 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.

Classic Winnie-the-Pooh appWe enjoyed listening to Rufus Jones narrate the story and the famous black and white illustrations by E H Shephard have been brought to life in colour through the Classic Winnie-the-Pooh app.

You can also touch the various characters and watch them move in this great app for children aged 4-8 years.

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.
