No need to run away with the circus, your kids can bring the circus home with this charming, original story and game app. Puppet Masterpiece Theater: The Circus game app captivates players with story and illustrations by Alexandra Conn and music by Danny Elfman. Based on a story written by a child, this circus app includes nine magical games, lions, seals, snakes, talking birds, a painted horse, and a villainous ring leader. Available now from Organa on iTunes for iPads. Although the app was designed with kids aged 4-7 in mind, ages 2-102 will love it too!
Puppet Masterpiece Theater: The Circus has nine games woven into a classic story of intrigue, adventure and circus delights. The circus games include lions jumping through a hoop, dressing up circus performers, painting and disguising a horse, and tempting a snake out of his basket with music. These interactive games promise to educate, entertain and engage the kids as they travel with a group of friends on a mission to get their beloved horse back – they get more than they bargained for when the circus comes to town. The whimsical hand drawn illustrations evoke the feel of a handmade puppet show. This captivating story is set to a spectacular soundtrack by Danny Elfman, Grammy award winner, known for his TV and film scores including “The Simpsons”, “Nightmare Before Christmas” and most recently “Frankenweenie”. The circus app has so many creative animals and obstacles that the kids will want to play the games again and again. Additional games will be offered periodically for a nominal fee.
