"StoryToys has near-brilliantly rethought children's books... ...this application evolves the very concept of what a story can be."
~ Jeremy Horowitz, iLounge
‚ÄúStunning. If I had to sum up this app in one word it would absolutely be stunning.‚ÄĚ
~ Danielle Smith, TheresABook.com
‚ÄúThe effect is just as impressive as it was in Rapunzel, and kids will be drawn into the book with the same sort of immediate interest and appeal.‚ÄĚ ~ Jeremy Horwitz, iLounge
