Puss in Boots : 3D Pop-up Book. A fun & educational interactive book app for kids!
Oct 23, 2012 9:17 AM –
Puss in Boots : 3D Pop-up Book is a rich educational app that is highly engaging for children. It can read to your child or allow your child to read the content themselves. Additionally there are small challenges and puzzle for the child to complete that helps make reading a game.
Tested on: HTC One X
Pros & Cons:
- Fun graphics!
- Lots of interactive activities!
- Good for ages 2-6 as advertised!
- This isn’t the end of the world, but it should be noted that this isn’t in any way related to the Shrek spin-off Puss in Boots.
Puss in Boots : 3D Pop-up Book is a fun and educational reading book for small children. The app comes from the same developers as Cinderella 3D Popup which we also reviewed recently. It offers a beautiful 3D reading environment where pictures pop up and become interactive. Essentially the child has to help characters by completing mini-tasks to move the story forward.
The colours are vivid and bright that will be really appealing to younger children and the book is long enough and challenging enough to be suitable for those higher up the age bracket. One criticism regarding Cinderella was that their suggestion that the age the book was suitable- 2-7 was dismissed by my 7 year old who found it a little boring. With Puss in Boots however, the age range is a little lower and, in my opinion more appropriate. The app also features rich sound effects and music throughout.
Children can also use your Android devices accelerometer to change viewing angle. The activities are not too difficult and make the app more fun than just straightforward reading. Generally speaking, there are usually a few pages to read through between each pop-up activity so it’s a nice balance of reading (or being read to) and activity. This all makes for a rewarding experience for children that is both enjoyable and educational at the same time.

For educating and amusing small children (and keeping them quiet for a few precious minutes!) Puss in Boots : 3D Pop-up Book is a useful app to have!
Ease of Use:
Quite literally designed to be used by children, playing with the app is very simple. The child just has to press the arrows to turn the page and identify items on screen by pressing them.
For small children, this could be something you use now and again to amuse them. It can encourage reading and an interest in books that is important to their education. It’s also a fun way of using technology to teach- and perhaps a novel alternative to traditional books.
The interface is very beautiful and rampant with colour and detail. The 3D effect is superb meaning the view changes when you turn the screen angle with the accelerometer. The screens are responsive and really well designed.
