BIC®Kids DrawyBook app!

Recently we were invited to the launch of a new kids App. The Bic Kids DrawyBook App. Sadly we couldn't attend but have been sent the kit and some other goodies to try the app for oursleves! 
We've yet to do this as school, work and 8th Birthday celebrations have got in the way but here's the low down on the app. We can't wait to have a play and see how cool this new app is!
An interactive story launched in April 16, combining colouring and educational games. DrawyBook is a free app and story book for children aged 5-10 so perfect for the monkeys, now 5 and 8. Available on Google Play and AppStore
Take a look at the video from the website below! 
The first “Marty and the Alien” story was conjured up by Elissa Elwick, an English children’s author.

“Marty loves astronomy and gazing at the stars. Since he was little, he has always dreamed of discovering the universe. One night, while camping in his back garden, Marty meets someone unexpected... a visiting alien!” 


With the unique "Draw & Scan" feature, children can personalise the story with drawings on paper, scanned by the app. They can then play and interact with their creations - it’s like magic!

First colour the story, then scan the pages with your device using the free download app. Next play with the 21 pages of the story. There is audio narration and and 9 virtual eperiences.
