Nosy Crow! Nosy Crow! If there’s one thing that gets us dancing round our iPad with the kids, it’s news of a new Nosy Crow app (see also: Toca Boca). Today’s reason for parental rug-cutting is Bizzy Bear Builds a House.
This time round, Bizzy has ditched farm-life in favour of the building site. He’s building a house (you may have guessed this from the title, admittedly) with the help of a digger, a crane, a bulldozer and a cement mixer.
Aimed at 2-4 year-olds, the story is told through animation and interactivity, with Nosy Crow’s trademark voice narration provided by children, and a musical score too.
The company has also been working on its words too: they’re now highlighted as they’re read – “word tracking” – which is a great feature for children who are learning to read.
Bizzy Bear Builds a House costs £2.49 on the App Store. Bargain.
