App Description

**The National Parenting Publication Awards: Honors winner in the Children's Media/Virtual category.**

"I like Mindshapes’ take on the story and their updating it with some nice graphics. The choices for interactivity are perfect for children and are not overly complicated to launch." WIRED's Geek Dad


The classic fairy tale is re-interpreted through beautifully crafted animation, injected with cheeky humour and produced by Mindshapes’ award-winning design and animation team.

FEATURES:

• Fully animated and interactive story experience.

• Multiple read modes.

• Unique visual style.


Our Jack and the Beanstalk app has been designed with several educational goals in mind:


• Language development: Read by Myself or Read to Me modes, highlighting the words being read to help the emerging reader.

• Fine motor skills: use the accelerometer to control the flight of Jack up and down the beanstalk.

• Promoting an understanding of basic physics: play with the magic beans and bounce them around the screen by tilting the device.


Discover a new way to enjoy an old story. Jack and the Beanstalk’s quirky visuals, hilarious characters and fun interactive features will keep children coming back again and again.
