Review: Good Night Mo Story App

Friday, 4 October 2013

A few days ago I received an email asking us to review a brand new childrens' story app. The app is called 'Good Night Mo' and is an interactive bedtime story book. The story is about a cute little monster getting ready for bed full of ryhmes and soothing music. Good Night Mo is aimed at children aged 15 months to 3+years old. It is available in English, French, German and Spanish and has ben narrated in each language by proffesional actors. You can see a quick clip below:

 
I found the app very easy and fast to download and was ready immediately to use. Gracie was very excited as she isn't allowed on the iPad often (mainly as I've been meaning to find some child friendly apps for her). When we opened it up we found that the book has 3D pop up pages and little things for her to do on each page. We chose the read to me mode so the book was narrated, although you can switch to read it myself for your child to try themselves. Gracie had lots of fun putting the animals to sleep, replacing the sun with the moon and her favourite was brushing the monsters teeth!
I did show Zach the app but at 12 months he didn't seem bothered to concentrate on the story, although I don't think he's far off. I think by the recommended age he will be ready to enjoy it. Gracie is almost three and I think the app is perfect for her. She didn't get bored at all and in fact read it over and over again until I told her it was time for bed. I think it will also be great for parents trying to establish a bedtime routine for their children as it shows you the monster having his bath and brushing his teeth ready for bed which will hopefully encourage them. The images on the app are great and the calming music really helps create a soothing atmosphere ready for bedtime.

We always have a book before bed and it has been a nice change having an interactive one. We like to read different books each night so I'll definitely be looking for more like this for our bedtime reading along with our traditional paper books.

You can get more information or download the app from the apple store here for just £1.99 Good Night Mo story app. If you are on android then don't worry an android version will be out soon.
