Nighty Night! HD came out nearly a year ago, but it’s still one of our favourite children’s apps for iPad, introducing a stable-full of animals getting ready to sleep. But developer Shape Minds and Moving Images’ new app looks even better.
It’s called Little Fox Music Box, and it’s described as “a sing-along app with more than 100 interactive elements”. The idea being that it teaches your children three songs – London Bridge, Evening Song and Old McDonald Had a Farm – while letting them knock up their own tunes too.
The graphics are beautiful – apparently they’re the work of Oscar-nominated animator Heidi Wittlinger – while the musicmaking part happens in the titular fox’s treehouse studio, where your kids can tap on a host of objects (and frogs) to make a din.
Little Fox Music Box costs £2.99 on the App Store, and runs across iPhone, iPad and iPod touch as a Universal build, so you only have to pay once to use it on all your iOS devices.
