The Buildo Museum is an interactive sticker book. It allows your child the opportunity to create their own scenes inside a spooky museum. They have three options to choose from:
1. The gallery floor where they can hang paintings (or perhaps stage a heist!).
2. The dusty museum attic full of cobwebs and discarded artifacts.
3. The creepy museum basement where maybe monsters are created
Each of these places is the potential backdrop for the scenes your child can create with digital stickers. Just above each scene is a row of characters and props to choose from. They give your child the option of who and what they would like to use in each scene. When a sticker is touched it makes its own specific sound effect as it’s dragged down to be placed into the scene. Once placed, it can be flipped, rotated, dragged, enlarged or reduced in size.
If sticker is touched again it will make the same noise it made when it was first dragged onto the scene. It is this feature that makes for very fun story telling. Since there are so many characters to choose from, the possibilities are endless if you want to use the App to coerce your little ones into weaving a few wild tales. The sound effects really sweeten the deal.
The only caveat I would mention is the ghoulish theme. We thought at first this might be a Halloween App, what with all the ghosts, mad scientists, piles of bones and zombies. It gave me pause to use it with a 3 year old, but once we decided it was just silly, we came up with a silly, scary story about a nice scientist who accidentally turned all of her dinner party guests into zombies. Luckily though, zombies are very good at playing the piano so the party was a huge success!
