This charming children's app is part of a series of 3D storybooks composed by Arcreative, and has received many awards in all categories. The animated story book sweetly tells the story of Pilo (pronounced pillow) in English, Korean or Chinese. The many interactive activities take part in a dream world and includes musical instruments, puzzles and animations. To make the story more personalized, your child may select to be either male (Tommy) or female (Sunny). Let's take a look at the delightful features of this iPhone and iPad 3D, interactive story book app:
- Real-time 3D story books
- Language education: English, Chinese or Korean-recorded by professional native artists
- 3D animations of friends in the dream world and interactive effects
- Choice of characters: Choose the main character that you want, either a boy (Tommy) or a girl (Sunny).
- Pilo's Wardrobe: Tap an outfit for Pilo, and it will be applied.
- If you touch Pilo, there will be character interactions.
- Interactions: Scene after scene, funny and wonderful interactive effects will increase interest in reading.
- Playing the piano: Banging on the piano keys makes a sound. Watch what happens when you tap a key on which Pipi sits.
- Winding up spring: When the bluebirds became excited, their mechanical springs stopped. Wind them up again!
- Playing the drum: Practice the drum just as Pilo learned from Tommy.
- Music puzzle: Put the puzzle together by moving music lying on El's podium.
- Performing the ensemble: If you touch the character, it plays a sound.
- Characters' finale dance: Each character dances when touched.
Launching Pilo2 proved to be a happy surprise with a wintry scene of toys and snow falling softly around Pilo himself. Beautiful colors and moving icons at the bottom of the display invite you to get started in taking on your part in the game. Pilo's character icon when tapped allows you to select various outfits to wear instantly! The child's face icon lets you select between playing as a boy or girl. The language icon gives a choice of enjoying this game in English, Chinese or Korean, while the fourth icon takes you to the various scenes which comprise all the fun activities. The narrator will introduce Pilo, the fairy from the Dream World. Tap Pilo, and he will giggle and wave. Tap the birds and they will chirp!
Once you've tapped the activities' icon, find 7 fun scenes within! Scene 1 opens to children fussing over toys (as children will!) Pilo calms them by whisking them off to Dream Land. Musical notes will magically float across the screen, and you are instructed to tap them. Each produces a different sound. Watch them explode into sparkling images. Tap the scroll arrow to move ahead to the next scene. When you tap the piano keys, you can actually make music as though you were touching a real key! The birds fly in the air when touched, and when you wind them up they turn around to thank you! In another scene, Pilo and Tommy interact like real kids when Pilo complains that he doesn't want to play drums, but changes his mind when Tommy shows him how. Then follows a neat drum interaction where you tap the circles on the drum to produce drumbeats.
The entertainment ends when Pilo, Tommy and the other characters agree they can learn from each other and are firm friends. Tommy climbs into bed drowsily, and goes happily to sleep in much the same way as will your child! He awakes in the morning cheerful after his good night sleep and happy adventures in Dream Land. Gentle voices and music along with age-appropriate activities make this a perfect bed-time app for your little one.
