Two Disney Apps for Halloween FunSilvia Martinez
Want some not-too-spooky fun for your little ones this Halloween? Adventures await in two favorite Disney apps for iPhone this year. Watch your little ones create and tell their own stories with a seasonal twist as they let their imaginations fly with the Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Paint and Play and Sofia the First apps with Halloween enhancements.
In Disney Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Paint and Play, the spooky fun begins with festive decorations and Halloween-themed characters and music. Winner of the 2013 NAPPA (National Parenting Publications Award) Gold Award for Virtual Products, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Paint and Play is a magical 3D coloring book that lets you create your own Clubhouse world and bring your 2D character artwork to Magical three-dimensional life after choosing from hundreds of tools, colors, and textures to decorate it. Then, you can explore your Clubhouse world with your animated character.
In the Sofia the First Theater app, your child’s inner director chooses background scenery, selects costumes, records lines, and blocks out scenes for Sofia and her friends. Your youngster will spend hours in creative, imaginative play directing her own theater.
Get a glimpse of the special Halloween features from both popular apps in the gallery below. Have fun!
