Planet 316 and WorthyKids/Ideals Augmented Reality Story Bible Review
Planet 316 and WorthyKids/Ideals has developed this wonderful new story Bible! We were able to review the Planet 316 Story Bible and the companion Planet 316 Story Bible App and I absolutely LOVED it! It’s an awesome way to get kids interested in learning about Bible stories!
The Planet 316 Story Bible is a great story book all on it’s own but with the addition of the free downloadable app, it’s purely ingenious. The book comes to life with the addition of a android or IOS device. The book is hard covered and super bright with adorable artwork. It’s full of over 100 Bible stories.
I was already pretty excited about the book even before it arrived. I was interested in trying out the new technology and seeing the fun pop out characters and hearing the sounds that go along with the stories. I couldn’t wait to start reading the stories to the kids. I was not disappointed as it was far better than I even imagined. The stories really do come to life with the addition of the app. They pop right out and when you click on the characters they began say a phrase and you can hear the various sound effects. Really fun!
There stories are fairly short and work well with the short attention spans of children but fun and educational enough for them to learn from them. We found it great for a short lesson before bed time. The art is simply adorable and really catches their attention. Loulou was particularly thrilled with the stories. She has carried the book around and asked for me to read it to her a lot here lately. She has a few that are her favorites that she wants me to read over and over again. She wanted to take it with her to Sunday School and show it to her class but I she has been sick for the past couple of Sundays and hasn’t been able to yet. Although it has been a good book to have while she hasn’t felt like playing to be able to sit and read together.
The app is easy to use. Even the little one had no issue with the application. All you have to do is download and install the app from the play store. Than open it up and scan the page for the image to pop out and come to life! It scans super quickly and pops out like a pop up book. So much fun!
Each page has a fun pop out addition to the story!
We made this video and I tried my best to get it to upload to Youtube for better quality but for some reason it just would not upload but I really wanted you to see how truly great this program and book are together. It really needs to be seen to be truly appreciated!
