Create your story using the colored buttons. By selecting one of the five balls available in each scene, children can freely create a story by mixing up the order of events. Read, listen to and play with scenes that feature many different characters: fairies, elves, evil wolves, monsters, ogres, pirates and princesses. Tale of Tales is an imaginary world where creating a story is always a surprise and where there are more than 2,000 different combinations possible.
Along with these imaginary characters, designed just for the app, children will also meet Little Red Riding Hood, her grandmother, the Three Little Pigs, Rapunzel and many others who will become the heroes of their stories, saving the main characters with all the means available to them: a picnic basket, a cake stolen from the gingerbread house or long, clumsy but strong locks of hair...
For children ages 3-5, this app was designed with a special focus on the use of colors, with captivating graphics and short stories (just 5 scenes each) so children will stay involved and don't have to wait to start their next story.
Available in Italian and English, the app works with iPads and iPhones. This is the first product project from navediclo.it which will continue its online work, while creating ad hoc products designed and created especially for tablets and smartphones with touch screens.
