One Christmas Eve the reindeer are in a dire situation ... all the usual helpers for Santa's sleigh are sick! Soon several poodles decide to step in and take over to help Santa deliver all the holiday gifts. A unique and original tale for the holidays. A small extra called "meet the poodles" is included, but other than that this title is not interactive. The story itself is cute, with nicely narrated rhyming text and background sounds & music. Page layout is heavy on text that is in a stylized font that is rather small. No highlighting with narration or other enhancements, but otherwise this is a lovely little storybook app.
This title is one of over two dozen titles briefly reviewed for a special post in our blog for the winter holidays, 2011.
All reviews are of the app, not the platform/device. Based originally on iPad versions. Minor technical details may vary.
