We are so excited about the latest app from StoryToys and Sesame Workshop with the release of Elmo Loves You!, a 3D pop-up storybook app, which encourages literacy and helps teach children about love and friendship. The app, which marks the first collaboration between Sesame Workshop and StoryToys, is available now priced at $3.99 exclusively for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch.
Based on Sesame Street’s best-selling storybook of the same name, Elmo Loves You! is narrated by Elmo and also features original voices of other characters, such as Cookie Monster, Count Von Count, Bert, Ernie, and more. Designed for children aged 5 and under, the app looks just like a real 3D pop-up book and includes charming animation and enchanting interactive features, which provide children with a richly immersive and engaging experience. There are wonderful surprises to discover in each of the 15 interactive scenes, where children can play peekaboo with Elmo, help Ernie to drum, exercise with Cookie Monster, practice counting with the Count, and much more. Highlighted narration, a first for a StoryToys app, supports early reading skills, while children also learn about love and friendship from their favorite Sesame Street characters.
Elmo Loves You! includes the following features:
• Real character voices - Elmo, Cookie Monster, Count von Count, and more
• 15 interactive scenes
• Read-aloud narration on every page
• Word highlighting, synchronised with Elmo’s narration
