Winnie the Pooh: What’s a Bear to Do?

Taking your kids to the movies this week to see Winnie the Pooh? Disney Publishing Worldwide, the world’s largest publisher of children’s books and magazines, has an app your children will love. “Winnie the Pooh: What’s a Bear to Do?” was released yesterday and marks Disney’s first step into the Android Market. With so much popularity behind other Winnie the Pooh digital products Disney Publishing Worldwide left nothing to chance with this app. The digital storybook features four interactive jigsaw puzzles, Tap ‘n Play animated surprises, and Pooh’s Cupboard matching game. Not to mention that, once downloaded, the story has three reading modes: Read to Me (already downloaded and available on the app in five languages: English, French, German, Spanish, or Japanese), Use My Recording, and Auto Turn Pages. Yes, that is right, you can record your own voice to read the story to your child!

As soon as I downloaded “Winnie the Pooh: What’s a Bear to Do?” I handed the phone to Landon, my son, and watch on as he pointed, “-Ooh, -Ooh!” (aka Winnie the Pooh, for all of those that need Toddler to English translation). He was captivated by the jittering motion of Winnie the Pooh’s honey jars on certain pages and giggled to sounds, such as Pooh’s snoring, on others. Once Landon decided I could finally have my phone back, I started to take a look at the options the app enabled users to choose from and was impressed by the thought and effort that Disney put into development. My favorite option has to be the Use My Recording option, because it is something we can use in our house to have Landon’s father read him a bedtime story even when he is across the country for work.

This is an app I recommend to all parents!
