'Sofia the First' iPad App Review

After giving the thumbs up to Disney Junior's newest series, Sofia the First, CC got the chance to try out the Sofia iPad app, courtesy of Disney.

The app offers up an adorable and interactive story about the little village girl-turned-princess (voiced by Ariel Winter), who has to adjust to a few growing pains as she's moving into the castle—namely figuring out why her new sister, Amber, is so grumpy. Showing lots of heart, little Sofia learns a big lesson about making strong family ties.

Besides the story itself, the app includes interactive features, as characters dance and move on each (electronic) page. There's also the fun theater part of the app, which allows kids to create their own puppet play, complete with multiple characters, backdrops and songs.

CC had lots of fun with it, especially since she loves making up stories and playing them back for Ian and me. Thumbs up, Sofia!
