Little Sister B in particular is a princess fanatic, so hearing that Disney Publishing Worldwide is celebrating Valentine's Day with a sale on select Princess apps for iOS immediately caught my attention. What better way to add a little sparkly, dreamy love to the holiday then by downloading some fun for only $1.99 (originally $4.99)?
Now through Friday, February 15th, the following apps are on sale, so don't miss out!
Princess Dress-Up: My Sticker Book for $1.99 (orig. $4.99)
Readers help their favorite Disney Princesses prepare for magical moments in this dress-up sticker book. Each princess has a short story introduction and is then ready for the user to pick out their dress, shoes, tiara, accessories and much more!
As a bonus, not only will little girls love dressing up everyone from Cinderella to Princess Tiana, but by using the camera on their device, they will be able to place their own face right into the dress-up action!
Cinderella: Storybook Deluxe for $1.99 (orig. $4.99)
Disney's Cinderella has enchanted generations with its spellbinding story, charming music, and endearing characters that live in your heart forever. This app includes a full retelling of the film with fresh illustrations, engaging narration, music and sound effects, as well as whimsical interactivity on every page.
Users have the option of reading the storybook for themselves, having it read to them or playing one of three fun activities: sing-along, painting or puzzles. The sing-along is an extremely cute way to enjoy the classic music of this film, while children have the option of choosing between six pictures to paint, and six different puzzles to put together (with three levels of difficulty).
Beauty and the Beast: Storybook Deluxe for $1.99 (orig. $4.99)
In this unforgettable story of love and adventure in a magical new format, Belle finds herself in a castle with talking furniture, an enchanted rose and a grumpy beast. Despite an awkward beginning, Belle and the Beast gradually become friends, and Belle learns not to judge a book by its cover.
This app offers users the option of listening to the full story (the words are highlighted in order to help developing readers) or selecting to paint, listen to music, play games or complete puzzles. With three pictures available to paint, two great songs to sing with, two games (collecting roses throughout the story or completing a maze in three difficulty levels), and four puzzles (also with three difficultly levels), this app provides a large amount of interactive and magical fun!
The Princess and the Frog Read-Along for $1.99 (orig. $4.99)
Tiana, a beautiful Louisiana girl who dreams of owning her own restaurant and Naveen, a spoiled, jazz-loving prince who doesn’t know the meaning of hard work, have nothing in common – until they are magically transformed into frogs.
Similar to the Beauty and the Beast app, this fully interactive app includes a reading of the story (you can even record your own voice reading the story), games, movie clips, coloring pages, and music to sing along. Whether having your fortune told by Doctor Facilier, chasing fireflies to help Tiana and Naveen make it through the bayou, completing one of five puzzles or painting one of five snapshots from the movie, this app is a great way to bring home the fun of The Princess and the Frog!
Princess Royal Party for $1.99 (orig. $4.99)
As the newest princess to join the magical, enchanting world of Disney, this app stars Rapunzel (as well as the rest of the princesses) preparing to celebrate with a royal ball.
Disney's Royal Party includes stories, games, puzzles and activities within the app as well as in-home ways to participate as well (e.g. instructions for baking princess cupcakes, creating a princess crown and more). Princess fans will enjoy participating in all sorts of royal activities and having the opportunity to be a special guest at the party themselves.
What are you waiting for? If you have a princess fan at home, take advantage of this sale as a unique and fun way to surprise her for Valentine's Day. But remember, these apps are $1.99 only until Friday, February 15th and then they'll go back to their full price of $4.99. Don't miss out!
I was provided complimentary downloads of these apps in order to facilitate my review, however, all thoughts and opinions are honest and my own.
