Disney’s First-ever Android App Character is Winnie the Pooh
What’s a bear to do? Well, Winnie the Pooh, one of the most beloved fictional characters of all time, just went Android.
To cater to the increasing number of families wired through their mobile devices, Disney Publishing Worldwide recently released its first-ever app for the Android platform– Winnie the Pooh: What’s a Bear to Do? The app appeals to children ages 3-7 with its interactive storybook, puzzles, and games. In the app, Winnie the Pooh is hungry, but he cannot find his honey.
Little kids will surely enjoy the app with its lively illustrations, fun sound effects, and well-loved Winnie the Pooh background music. The narration is also available in five languages (English, French, German, Spanish, and Japanese), plus your child’s voice reading the story can also be recorded. To top all that, one can choose among the three reading modes: Read to Me, Use My Recording, or Auto Turn pages.
According to Russell Hampton, president of Disney Publishing Worldwide, their Winnie the Pooh-branded digital products have been popular, and having an Android app just broadens the chance for families to enjoy the timeless antics of the loveable bear. “(The company) is committed to delivering high quality reading experiences to families in the most relevant ways, and our expansion on to Android devices with Winnie the Pooh is another great step forward in this direction for us,” he further says. Disney Publishing Worldwide is the world’s largest publisher of reading materials for children.
The Puzzle Book is available in the Android Market for $2.99.
