Every once in a while we get offered an app to review and you immediately fall in love with it. Today Mumsnet introduced us to the story telling app by Not On The High Street called Storytime Sounds. It’s free by the way to download from Itunes. Of course anything that look this funky had to be played with immediately and I started to fiddle and straight away the dog came and sat at me feet captivated by the sounds I was making.
The app which was launched in June originally featured 5 soundboards to add excitement to your story time telling and with Halloween just round the corner have added a 6th! The others are pirates, fairytales, lost world, monsters & space) The Pirates were our favourite as our story time this evening consisted of the fabulous “the Pirate Next Door” and this really brought it alive.
We’ve used it four times this evening with different stories at the second daddy arrived home this evening he was popped on the sofa with the wish to hurry up and read a story “cause its really cool and we can make spooky noises”
Once you’ve downloaded the free app why not head over to NOTHS page and read their own little Halloween story which ties in with their new soundboard? It’s a fabulous tool and has provide a great deal of fun and amusement beside a desire to read “more stories..now!” It has made me chuckle lots as we’ve even used it to sound out the Famous Five! I cannot think of a single possible reason not to try this app out as you can use it not just for story telling but for creeping up on friends and rattling skeleton bones or adding a creaky door to a spooky bedtime!
