[prMac.com] Vancouver, Canada - Papa's Frog, an emerging mobile developer currently focused on children's entertainment, today is pleased to announce the launch of its "Helping Toto the Puppy" app for the iPad. The introductory edition of a planned children's storybook series, Helping Toto the Puppy is designed as a kid-friendly entertainment solution for the iPad that gives parents peace of mind ensuring that their children will be thoroughly entertained and engaged by this comically educational interactive experience. Helping Toto the Puppy is currently available on the Apple App Store.
This app is structured as a children's book with a unique interactive twist on every page. Each interactive component calls for children to successfully complete a different action - or set of actions - in order to move forward. The app focuses on various game elements that encourage children to take an active role in helping to make Toto - the app's central character - feel better. Because children are charged with tasks that necessitate problem solving, this application effectively nurtures their cognitive development while entertaining them. Staying true to the app's title, though, if Toto's stomach begins to make him feel sick, children may find to their comic delight that only helping him in this manner may prove helpful.
Every page of Helping Toto the Puppy is beautifully rendered in vibrant colors and professionally drawn. There are multiple touch-based interactions offered on every one of the application's 50 pages as well. Furthermore, this app utilizes the full extent of the iPad's capabilities, taking advantage of its multi-touch, video, and microphone functionalities. Taken in unison, all of these features help this app transcend its label as simply a digital children's book and become a fully faceted educational entertainment experience.
Children can easily move backwards and forwards through the story at their own discretion and the app itself will never preclude children from finishing the story even if they cannot finish certain tasks, an important feature to ensure that children won't become frustrated as they progress through its narrative. Because it was created as the first installment of a multi-part story, Helping Toto the Puppy represents only the first chapter of a children's storybook series that will continue to encourage young children to laugh while they develop various important skills.
