Back with another great app, Spinlight Studio’s newest – Billy’s Coin Visits the Zoo – is just as great as all their previous apps! With Billy’s Coin Visits the Zoo, children can share in an epic adventure all about zoo animals! The story begins with a normal day like any other, Billy’s mom gives him a coin to spend on a toy at the zoo, but when the coin slips down the drain things take a turn. Children will follow the coin as it journeys through the zoo, meeting all the animals from the chomping alligator to the upside-down hanging monkeys.
Children of various ages can enjoy the app as it features follow-along words that are highlighted as the story is read aloud by narrators. The app is filled with fun interactions for children, each page introducing a new animal friend with a new trick. I love the artwork, the animals are done in a fabric style, which reminded me of old-school felt books, fun! The fabrics and textures add another layer of style to this app, which to me, make it stand out from the crowd of interactive storybooks.
I really enjoyed Billy’s Coin Visits the Zoo! I love the design, as well as how children can learn fun facts about zoo animals as they read. There are even 12 animal toys to collect at the end of the story. I have always been a fan of Spinlight Studio apps, if you enjoy this app be sure to check out some of their others, my four year old son loves AlphaTots and TallyTots as well as Gappy!
