Dinosaur Roar iPad and iPhone App!

Great news, the brilliant team at +Immediate Media Co have released...

The Dinosaur Roar App for iPad and iPhone!

Listen, Read, Record, Colour, Name and ROAR!

Kids just love dinosaurs, they seem to be hard wired for it!
There are a lot of dinosaur apps for kids out there but this is the Dinosaur Roar app for kids!

The World of Dinosaur Roar welcome's a great new kid's dinosaur app for iPad and iPhone.
Buy it here!

It's been great fun seeing the development of this app. My four year old daughter means that I have struggled to keep it out of her grasp but what better way to test an app designed for kids and preschool children.
Simple fun here. The designers at Immediate Media have done a great job of distilling the things that kids love about Dinosaur Roar! So we have a strong emphasis on storytelling. Listen to the story read by a delightful cast or read the story. The favourite feature in this household is recording your own reading of Dinosaur Roar! We have been helpless with laughter at our own silly, childish and very possibly rude version of the text! Brilliant fun, kid's apps aren't usually that funny.
I love the idea of getting your favourite  dinosaur  Grampa or Granny to read the text for their favourite grandson or daughter, saving it for later, great feature.

Then there are some great colouring pages, which you could easily print out to colour in and have fun with. There's a dinosaur name generator too. More details below:

"Inspired by the best-selling picture book, Dinosaur Roar! by Paul and Henrietta Stickland, the new Dinosaur Roar! app, created by Immediate Media Co, is a must for all young dinosaur fans.
Using Paul Stickland’s original designs and Henrietta Stickland’s wonderful rhyming text, the app is aimed at 2-4 year olds and incorporates different storytelling functions, creative colouring options, as well as a fun ‘shake and name’ device. Children can watch, hear, colour in and touch their favourite dinosaurs as they stomp, shuffle, run, chomp, blink, squeak and roar their way across the screen.
Storytelling options let you listen to the story narrated by a child’s voice, or alternatively you can read the story yourself – with the option to record and save – while the innovative scrolling function takes you on a continuous journey through the dinosaurs’ world.
For colouring fun, simply select your favourite dinosaur from the menu, then using your fingers to add colours and patterns, you can recreate the original, or be as creative and colourful as you like. A save function allows you to preserve your mini-masterpiece, plus each dinosaur can be coloured in again and again (and again)!
Sara Oldham, Editor, Pre-School Titles, Immediate, said: I'm a huge fan of the Dinosaur Roar! picture book, which has been delighting children for 20 years. It has been a real privilege to work with the book's illustrator, Paul Stickland, to bring his beautiful paintings to life. We're sure young fans will be thrilled to have this playful family of dinosaurs at their fingertips. And with educational benefits that include reading, writing, creativity, co-ordination, maths and emotional learning, we're sure parents will love it too."
Peter Curtis, Director, Nurture Rights, added: The Dinosaur Roar! app is a perfect companion to the much loved picture book by Paul and Henrietta Stickland. It’s wonderful to see that the book, that has shaped so many young children’s early reading years, has now been reinvented for a new generation. Immediate have brought the book to life beautifully and kids will be roaring for more!"
The classic picture book Dinosaur Roar! by Paul and Henrietta Stickland, was first published in the UK in 1994 and has become a publishing phenomenon, with sales of more than five million books worldwide. As this iconic children’s title marks its 20th anniversary, owners Nurture Rights have appointed Penguin Random House as the new publishers, and have also teamed up with the Natural History Museum to develop and market the Dinosaur Roar! brand. Dinosaur Roar! is the inspiration for a major new project for pre-schoolers being developed by Nurture Rights, in association with the Natural History Museum, with a percentage of royalties from sales of the app going to support the work of the museum."

The Dinosaur Roar! iOS app for iPad and iPhone is priced at £1.99 in the UK and available worldwide for download from iTunes
