Monsters University Storybook Deluxe- A New App from Disney Publishing {Review}

Disclosure:  I received no monetary compensation for this post.  I received a complimentary copy of the app for the purposes of this review.  All opinions are my own.

Do you know what today is?  It’s the release of MONSTERS UNIVERSITY! I am a little excited, in case you can’t tell.  Though we did get to see it last month while attending Disney Social Media Moms, I have full plans to take Raileigh back and see it once again now that it is officially in theaters.

To coordinate with the release, I have a fun new app to tell you about.  It’s the Monsters University Storybook Deluxe App from Disney Publishing.

This amazing new app is full of exciting features that allow you to relive the movie and expand the fun in all-new adventures.  Check it out:

• Fully animated and interactive storybook art, real film clips, character voices lifted from the film, Read-on-Your-Own and Listen-Along reading options!

• Interactive fun: Tappable quotes, tap to reveal special animations, including Archie the Scare Pig and more!

• Activities: Create your own Monsters University ID Badge in which you can monsterify a photo of you, your family or friends!

• Play: 3-D first-person POV of all FIVE Scare Games. Earn points by avoiding obstacles, climbing up and down walls, onto the ceiling—and finally giving your best scary roar!

• Game Rewards: Unique Scare Cards of your favorite monsters and an official Monsters University trophy screen!

• Featuring the voice talents of Billy Crystal, John Goodman, Helen Mirren and more!

• Unlock more special rewards if you own the Monsters, Inc. Storybook Deluxe app!

• Featuring: English, French, Italian, German, Russian and Castilian Spanish

Yes– it is full of fun, just waiting to be uncovered.

Would you like to know what our favorite part of the app is?  Well… the truth is, I can’t decide!  We are completely smitten with Monsters University and every aspect of this app.

On one hand, you have the interactive storybook, which is truly a lot of fun.  In my opinion, I wouldn’t read it before seeing the movie, unless you like spoilers.  But afterwards, it is a great way to relive some of your favorite moments and perhaps catch a new one that slipped past you when you saw the movie.

While I normally do encourage Raileigh to use the “Read on Your Own” options when enjoying a book app, the “Listen Along” option on this app is awesome.You actually get to hear the character voices like in the movie!

We also really, really like the Scare Games.  You can participate in each of the ones featured within the movie in this app.  It is truly a lot of fun!  You can even earn rewards for your performance in the games.  And– who doesn’t like that?

We have had such a good time so far with the Monsters University Storybook Deluxe App.  With all of it’s amazing features, this app is so much more than just a book.

For today only {in celebration of the movie’s release} the Monsters University Storybook Deluxe App is on sale for just $4.99.  That’s a TWO DOLLAR savings off of the normal price.  So, now is definitely the time to buy.

If you head over and download the Monsters University Storybook Deluxe App for your iPad, iPhone, or iPod Touch, I would love to know what your favorite aspect of this awesome new app is.
