Injecting Life in a Classic Tale

There are certain books and stories that become classics being told generation after generation but that doesn't mean they can't have a few modern touches added to them. The Rumpelstiltskin by Fairytale Studios app is a perfect example of a classic tale combined with modern features. This book can be enjoyed on your mobile device and features all kinds of moving pictures that will make the vintage illustrations seem modern and fresh. Not only that, but the interactive offering also features a number of games throughout. The user interface has been given a fair amount of thought so that it is child-friendly and smooth to navigate and read. The text all appears in a crisp manner so that it's easy for them to read.

The app hasn't been updated in just over a year with its last update featuring some improvements and bug fixes. It has a very high customer rating of 4.5 out of five stars from users but no customer comments at this point. Not to worry Mom and Dad, there are no ads in the app, no in-app purchases, nor is there any collection of personal information.

Features of the Story

Besides its interactive offerings the Rumpelstiltskin by Fairytale Studios app also has a number of other features. Kids will get to choose how they enjoy the story either listening to the professional narration or they can read it on their own. The pages are filled with songs, music, and sound bites which again help to bring the story to life. Even though the iTunes page classifies this one for six to eight years of age, really any child from the age three and up can enjoy it. The pages do an excellent job of setting the scene for this tale and parents may even find a newfound interest in the tale themselves.
