Press Quotes

Eight high-fives for a truly splendid effort." - Kirkus Reviews / Awarded a Kirkus Star!

# "Timmy Tickle is a ticklish, dishwashing, costume-wearing, color-changing Octopus who is sure to entertain your kids." - AppAdvice.com

The story, read by West End star Gina Beck, currently playing Glinda in Wicked, tells kids about Timmy and let’s them join in with his favourite activities.

By touching and tapping the screen children can:
# cheer Timmy up by tickling him
# match which fruit he’s imitating
# play nursery rhymes on Timmy’s xylophone
# learn to count with his colourful balloons
# help Timmy wash up and spin-dry plates (trying not to smash them!)
# make him roller-skate (and help him up if he falls)
# discover Timmy’s enchanting costume collection
# help dim the lights so Timmy can get some rest for next time!

As well as learning and playing with Timmy children can also colour in eight different Timmy adventures. The pictures can be saved to iPhoto so parents can share their childrens' creations with friends and family on Facebook or via text/email.
