Living Stories - for your iThings

I have an iTouch and an iPad.  I typically do not let my girls play with it.  Most the time I'm like a little kid that doesn't want to share her favorite toy. 

But then there are those times.  Those times when your waiting for your food to come at your favorite restaurant and the kids are loosing their minds!  This, is when I compromise and hand over my favorite toys.

I keep a few special kid apps close at hand for these very moments of meltdown. I love apps where kids can color, doodle, or work on their letters/numbers skills. Currently, my favorite kid apps are the My Living Stories (which are only $1.99/per story).

My Living Stories are essentially classical animated stories such as Princess & the Pea, King Midas, The Tortoise & the Hare, Little Red Riding Hood and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.  The stories are accompanied by beautiful artwork, interactive screens and cooresponding sounds.
 Both my 5 year old and my 3 year old have really enjoyed them.  Currently, our favorite is Princess & the Pea, since we're really going through a "princess" phase over here.  We've play with this story so many times she can "read" it me!
