Sofia the First AppDid your little girl watch the wildly popular "Sofia the First: Once Upon a Princess" premiere last year?  Riley did and loved every minute of it!  As a matter of fact, we still have it recorded on our DVR so that she can enjoy that episode over and over again.

To coincide with the season premiere of the all new Disney Junior animated series "Sofia the First" on January 11th, Disney Publishing has released the first "Sofia the First" storybook app for iOS devices: Sofia the First: Story Theater. The app follows the show's opening storyline and features the original voice of Sofia, narrated by ABC’s Modern Family star Ariel Winter, and the other characters of the TV show, including Sara Ramirez from Grey's Anatomy as Sofia’s mother.

The Sofia the First: Story Theater App retails for $3.99 on iTunes.

The new storybook app is perfect for beginning readers, featuring beautiful illustrations combined with elegant animation to tell an interactive story that is tailored to the iPad and iPhone experience with tap-able elements on each story page. Children can even create and record personal stories as part of a digital story theater, providing them an opportunity to use their imagination and creativity to hand-select characters, backdrops, props and music to enrich their own story creation.

In the app storyline, Sofia learns an important lesson: that looking like a princess isn’t all that hard but behaving like one must come from the heart.  As a new resident of the castle with her mother’s recent marriage to the King, Sofia must learn how to behave like a Princess while also dealing with her stepbrother and stepsister, who aren’t entirely happy about her arrival.

With the help of a magical amulet, which allows her to talk with new animal friends, and three familiar fairies in charge of the Royal Training Academy — Flora, Fauna and Merryweather of Disney’s classic “Sleeping Beauty" – Sofia learns how to fit into her new role, enjoy her new life and learn how family, friends and special relationships are important. Classic Disney princesses Ariel, Cinderella, Aurora, Belle and Jasmine even make special appearances in the app!

Disclosure: I received a copy of the Sofia the First: Story Theater App from Disney in order to facilitate my review. No other compensation was received. This product review is based on my own personal experiences with this item and is completely honest and objective.

 

I'm a former 7th grade Science teacher turned stay-at-home mom that lives in Houston, Texas. I am married to my college sweetheart and have a beautiful daughter named Riley, who definitely keeps me on my toes! I am also involved in starting a small business which would both manufacture and sell an invention that I've patented, called Toothpaste 2 Go. I love interacting with my readers and hope to learn as much about you as you learn about me!
