PreS-Gr 1—Incorporating familiar characters from their other productions, and offering a variety of backgrounds, figures, and special effects to chose from, Fox and Sheep delivers an entertaining app sure to spark creativity and imaginative play with young storytellers. While Movie Creator lacks some of the embellishments of Nosy Crow's Complete Fairytale Theater, fewer frills doesn't mean fewer choices or less playfulness here. The app flows nicely as settings, figures, props, and music effects are selected. While the production contains a fair number of options, users can purchase additional school, decoration, and effects packs.Movies are automatically saved and are easily uploaded to various social media sites, should appsters wish to share. Editing is not available. Instructions and notes for adults are available in nine languages.
VERDICT Easy to use and valuable as an educational tool in the home and classroom.
