And she bloomin loved it! The first Gruffalo: Game we played was one where mouse has to collect all manner of things but as it was both our first times playing the game he kept getting bonked on the head the by nuts the poor sod. Next we had a go at a matching game. My girl loved it as she could match up shapes with shapes, and I loved it as when the letters and number cropped up I could do my teacher thang and talk to her about them.
The Gruffalo has long been an obsession in our house and this summer we visited both the Live Show and the Trail so obviously both my kids loved this game a lot. The screen comes alive with the story and it was fantastic to see all the stars of the book in a different 'plot'. The Gruffalo: Games app costs just £2.99, features six different games and is aimed at children aged 3-7. All of the characters pop up and the lovely rather forest like music that is used is, from the film of the story. What my girl loved most was the fact that literally her Dad gave her the phone and she could pop on it straight away and work out what to do without very much guidance. What I loved was that it pushed her ability wise, there were easy bits but there were harder bits that we could try and tackle together and eventually as she gets older she could tackle herself.
