Toontastic Jr. Pirates
Ahoy Matey! Climb aboard this pirate themed app and create animated cartoons.
Publisher: Launchpad Toys

Why we love this app

This colorful, pirate themed app invites children to create their own cartoons by using fun-tastic characters and scenery in a quick and easy way. Cartoonish pirates, mermaids, ghosts and princesses all add to the cast of characters that will have children creating their own cartoon in just minutes. Children can create stories alone or with others by using a feature called “Story Share”, which enables your child to connect live (with parental assistance) to a friend or family member to create a story together online.

What it teaches and how it works

Toontastic Jr. fosters creativity and collaboration for young children in the art of digital story telling. By spinning the story wheel, children can select a beginning, middle and end scene to the story and then the fun begins. As the animation starts, the child records his own voice and moves the characters to create a unique story, complete with music. Once created, the story can be saved and played again and again. Children can be writer, choreographer and musical composer of their own cartoon story.

Why your kid won't be able to put it down

The easy to navigate storyboard, colorful characters and imaginative scenes urge children to explore all the scenes and create one story after another. Toontastic Jr. encourages family time as parents and children explore the world of storytelling, digital style.
