We’re super excited to announce that our next iPad app has launched! The Crankamacallit is an interactive children’s book chock full of interactive features, discoveries, sounds, animations, 360 degree panoramas, mini games and more. I think it’s a doozie! Part poem, part story, this 3D fantasy was written by Mimi Cross, and wonderfully narrated by Robert Burke Warren (AKA “Uncle Rock”)
Using playful, rhythmic language and rhyme “The Crankamacallit” draws the user into the fantastic 3D world of an inventor’s workshop.
A great iPad app for kids, who love all the unpredictable moving parts of “The Crankamacallit”. In an adventurous tale for the picture book crowd, 3-8 year olds (and their parents!) will be mesmerized by the step-by-step process of the Crankamacallit’s creation and become active participants in the story by using the many interactive features, making unexpected discoveries, exploring 360-degree panoramas, using the hidden drawing tool and more.
Part poem, part story, this rhythmic 3D fantasy was written by Mimi Cross, animated by Juergen Berkessel and narrated by acclaimed singer songwriter Robert Burke Warren, aka “Uncle Rock”.Listeners will laugh out loud at the nuances of Warren’s performance.
