Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: The Jumblies

Today's Free App of the Day is The Jumblies
Originally $2.99

From the product page: Full of fantastical nonsense, interactive prompts, and unique illustrations by Sam McPhillips, this humorous interactive animated storybook app is the perfect gift for children! Written by inimitable British author, Edward Lear.

Even though I'm not much interested in it as an app, I downloaded it. I think this would be a perfect bedtime app; it's quiet and charming and cute. You can tap on items to activate them. If you don't find an item to click on, eventually, little white circles will appear indicating which items are clickable. Clicking will cause some action or sound from the item/character clicked. You can also click on the words to have them read aloud.

It's not so busy and active that it wouldn't work for bedtime, and the music is gentle. 

You can swipe down from the top to pull down a menu that lets you go to "Home," (the cover), turn off the music or jump to a specific page ("Bookmark" icon). At the end of the book, the pull down menu only has the Home icon and the Bookmark icon. I would call this a solid four star app aimed at young kids and their parents.

3 of 7 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page.  Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
