What could be better than watching your own original story unfold before your eyes? Lipa Theater: Story Maker lets the imagination of kids six years old and below fly with its ability to let them craft their own story, exercising their creativity and social and emotional skills. Lipa Theater: Story Maker is just one of the many apps released by Lipa Learning, which focus on providing interactive, educational apps for children.
The app, as can be surmised from its name, centers on the theater. And, your child is basically the theater director. From the kind of weather, time of day, puppets, and other props, it is up to your child what elements his production would be comprised of. The designs of the said elements are highly akin to illustrated children’s books, making it a perfectly safe app for your child to use, explore and master.
The sheer amount of the content that your child could choose from pretty much guarantees that he would never run out of stories to tell. Puppets can be easily animated by tapping and touching them. You can record the entire production and play it from the start to watch the story seamlessly unravel like a digital play! Another stand—out feature of this app is the ability to upload your own photos, and even drawings, to serve as backgrounds for your various productions. This not only ups the customization level of this app, but it also serves to undo its limitations.
Indeed, what’s good about the app is that there is practically no limit to the number of scenarios and instances that your child can animate using the app’s available features. Most apps of this kind are almost always subject to these kinds of genre restrictions. Yes, Lipa Theater: Story Maker may have set, archetypal props, but it is not limited by them, as your child can almost create any kind of story out of it, may it be space trek or a pirate adventure.
Lipa Theater: Story Maker’s features are truly one-of-a-kind, with features that are only vaguely similar to most story-maker apps available in the App Store. Obviously, Lipa Theater: Story Maker is leaning more toward the theater and drama in general and, because of the app’s target audience, is more simplistic albeit possessing outstanding graphics. It is this very feature that serves to make the value of this app stand out. Letting your child use this app is also a great way of introducing him early on to the wonders of the theater and dramatic literature.
