App Description

Let's make a story! From the creators of Toontastic (iTunes Hall of Fame, NY Times "Top 10 Apps"), Toontastic Jr. Pirates is a playful storytelling tool for swashbucklers and scallywags as young as 3 to create their own pirate cartoons. Pick a beginning, middle, and ending - then animate your story just like a puppet show, recording your voice while you move the characters onscreen!


Toontastic Jr. Pirates comes with 12 scenes to inspire your child’s imagination by remixing to create their own pirate adventures. Dig for buried treasure with Crazy Bearde on Pirates Cove, sail the high seas with Bonnie Flintlock on the Cutlass, and defend the landlubbers of Hardtack Harbor from the attack of the Barnacle. Avast!

Toontastic Jr. Pirates empowers young children to be producers of creative media, not just consumers, and introduces them to key storytelling concepts while developing their oral literacy skills.

“Our 3 year old loves this app! She really enjoys moving the characters around and making them talk. She giggles hearing her voice played back and is thrilled when the audience claps for her story. Keep these creative games coming!”
