Disney’s new Minnie Mouse Bow Maker is a hit with little princesses! This new app from Disney will be popular with fans of Minnie Mouse and kids ages 3 – 7. As soon as my 5 year old tester figured out how to make bows and put them on pictures of herself she was hooked. She loved being able to customize each bow with different materials, colors, patterns and shapes, and she had a big smile on as each bow popped out of the bow maker machine.  My photo album now has a collection of saved bows being modeled by both Minnie Mouse and my 5 year old!

The app is focused on designing bows for Minnie and other characters to wear. There is also an option to let the player take a new picture or use an existing one from the device’s photo album and place the bow on people that they know. Minnie, and the characters introduced first in the stories, will model the player’s creations in the big bow show.

There are three ways to play:

  1. The interactive story mode: containing three new stories inspired by Minnie’s Bow-Toons series. At the end of each short story, the player makes a special bow for Minnie’s friends. To read the story, scroll through the words on the bottom of the screen. If the swipe does not seem to work, try tapping instead.
  2. The bow maker mode: this takes you right to the bow maker and allows you to make a bow for Minnie or yourself. You can save the creation to the game for Minnie, to your device’s photo album or share it with friends.
  3. The big bow show: Minnie and the characters from the story model the bows you have made for them.

Minnie Bow Maker gives several ways to customize each bow through colors, fabrics, patterns and style selections.  There are many different combinations to choose from allowing for a new bow each time.  Kids will love to see their creations modeled in the big bow show!  While this app was a hit in my house with the early childhood girls, I would love to see a little more interaction with the story.

Overall, a fun app for little girls to enjoy! They will be delighted making bows for Minnie and her friends or putting their creations on pictures of themselves and others!
