This holiday take storytelling to a new level with Incredebooks and Disney Imagicademy latest “Connected Storybooks”, Olaf Wants a Birthday and Mickey and Donald’s Rhyme Time.
Connected Storybooks are a fun new way to read traditional printed storybooks with your kids, then bring their favorite characters to life in 3D using your mobile device through the power of augmented reality technology!
In Olaf Wants a Birthday (SRP: $14.99), the loveable Disney snowman discovers all the fun things that he could do if he celebrated birthdays like his friends Elsa and Anna. He imagines skating parties, games of tag, birthday flowers, walks with friends, songs and even a day at the beach. In the end, he decides he likes birthdays so much that he wants one every day.
In Mickey and Donald’s Rhyme Time (SRP: $14.99), which has arrived just in time for Mickey Mouse’s birthday on November 18, Mickey and his Clubhouse friends help Donald write a lovely poem for Daisy. Even the talented Toddles cannot provide the right rhyming words so Donald has to solve the problem himself through perseverance and hard work.
During play, children can:
- Take a photo with Olaf or Mickey
- Change viewpoints by zooming in and out — and rotating the 3D story scenes 360 degrees
- Explore four digital experiences reinforcing early language skills
- Tap objects to trigger animations and funny rhymes
- Engage in playful rhyming games and activities
As part of Disney Imagicademy’s innovative suite of products, Incredebooks: Disney Imagicademy Edition books help children explore reading foundation skills and concepts by:
- Recognizing rhymes and non-rhymes
- Listening to and matching rhyming word pairs
- Reading and matching rhyming word pairs
The full augmented reality experience is INCLUDED AT NO EXTRA CHARGE with the purchase of the hardcover storybooks, available exclusively at Target.?
