Make a scene: Fairy Tales is an animated sticker book released by Innivo Ltd.
“Do your children enjoy making a scene? Then give them ‘Make a Scene’, and give yourself some precious peace and quiet. Make A Scene Fairy Tales is a fun interactive game that engages children’s natural sense of creativity.”
The application allow you to create a fairy tale scene using the animated “stickers” and backgrounds available.
As you place the sticker their name is read out allowed, then the sound effect is played and the “sticker” will go through its animation. As you continue to add to the scene, the “stickers” will animate at random times making things feel more interactive.
This application is very similar to the previous Make a Scene application, but is much larger and has stickers for five “Princess” fairy tales. These are: Sleeping Beauty, Snow White, Cinderalla, Beauty and the Beast and Rapunzel. You can also select to use stickers from all of these together.
There are 7 backgrounds and 7 foregrounds to select from. There are around 120 stickers to use.
The screen is uncluttered with only the top bar for adding the stickers and then three buttons at the base to allow the screen to be cleared or saved and to select a new background or foreground.
This latest edition of Make A Scene has added a new feature (now being added to older titles as well) that you can switch the direction of the sticker by double tapping the sticker once placed. To be honest it was something I had not really noticed in previous versions, but is a nice addition.
This app is aimed at the under fives, and as my daughter is four loved it. She played it for around half an hour and then has asked to play several times since the original session.
The graphics and sounds are both very good, with a nice look and feel. The sound effects are good, but one of two seemed a bit tinny.
On the upside:
- Nice artwork.
- Easy to use interface.
- Nice sound effects.
On the downside:
- Would be nice to resize the stickers manually, rather than based on the position on the screen, as some stickers look out of scale on some backgrounds.
- If you have kids, they will play this app a lot.
- I did have to turn down the sound, when my daughter got the the prince to ask the princess to marry him for the 20th time 😦
Overall, this is a great application and will keep younger kids very happy. My daughter loves the Disney Princesses and this game seems to fill the bill nicely for her. This is the best of the Make a Scene application to date, especially due to the number of stickers. If you have a daughter then this apps are a must have.
