Is It Free?

No. The app will cost you $4.99 but features no ads or additional in-app purchases.

Ages Designed For?

5-8. While they do have apps for younger children their apps are mainly focused on children between the ages of 5-8.

What's It About?

Goldilocks and Little Bear is a really unique and innovative storybook app that may be the very best in the Nosy Crow fairytale series of apps.

Children get to follow the dual stories of Goldilocks and of the Little Bear by rotating their devices to switch the story from one character’s perspective to the other.  This allows kids to see just how alike the two characters are as they go through similar experiences in parallel.

Each scene of the story has a different type of interactivity to explore: whether thats running around to play hide-and-seek, drinking some burning hot porridge or jumping on beds.

Words of the story are highlighted as they get read by the narrator giving kids a chance to get used to the sight and spelling of the words from the story.

It’s a beautifully animated app and one of our favorite storybook apps out there.

What’s The App Good For?

It’s great for a story time session.  It’s also great at showing kids that there is always more than one side to a story and that each one of us has our own story.

Is Goldilocks and Little Bear Worth It?

Yes, but it’s a much better deal if you get it as part of the fairy tales bundle that Nosy Crow offers. Kids have loved this fairy tale for ages and it’s the best way to experience the story on today’s smart devices.
