The master minds of Callaway Digital Arts and Sesame Street, who brought you one of Rock and X’s absolutely favorite apps The Monster at the End of This Book, have partnered together again to bring to life the 1977 best-selling book The Great Cookie Thief with The Great Cookie Thief App.
We were so excited to try out this new app because we love Cookie Monster.
Check out the video.
- The great story with interactive play to improve motor skills
- Two alternative endings
- More than 100 touch animations from book’s original art
- Make your own wanted poster with fun outlaw names like “Stink Eye”
- More than 20 parent tips to help children practice memory skills, build vocabulary and inspire imagination
Rock and X love the colorful and fun story of the Old West town plagued by a mystery bandit who steals cookies from local bakeries. I love how the youngest kid in town is the only one who realizes that the new blue guy in town looks a lot like the infamous Cookie Thief. Together Rock, X and I compare characteristics from the wanted poster to solve the mystery.
My little men got a kick of the first Cookie monster app!
This app can be bought for $3.99 respectively from the App Store on iPad, iPhone and iPod touch or at http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/great-cookie-thief…-sesame/id536771665?mt=8
