Review: Shiny Circus

Well designed, educational and fun young children's interactive book and games.

View on the App Store: Shiny Circus - Shiny Things

Features of Shiny Circus:

  • Story book adventure at the circus. Choose the story or game mode for different experiences!
  • Colourful bright app filled with fun and educational activities.
  • The Interactive games are: Dress the Clowns, Balance Me, Creating Order and Ready, Aim, Fire!
  • Good value for money.
  • Read to your child or listen to the narrator.
Join Charlie the monkey, Alice the Zebra and the Ralph the Giraffe on their visit to the circus!  The bright and colourful illustrations are interactive and give toddlers lots of things to tap and watch!

You can play on two modes, story and game, plus there is a motivational sticker book when your child completes the games. 

The 15 page interactive story takes the 3 main characters to the circus where Charlie the monkey joins in!  He helps to dress the clowns by choosing the correct costumes and then helps with their acts.  

The fun games have an educational motive and are designed to improve fine motor skills, weight and balance, basic trajectory skills, teach order & size!  Your child plays them throughout the story and then has the option to play on Game Mode. 

The games available are the same ones that your child plays during the story with a few more like popcorn popping and stretching things!

A toddler will need help to complete the story but an older pre-school child could play and enjoy!
