I received the Elfishki and The Giant Cake iPad Book for review from Tomoson.com. This app is targeted for children ages 5-9. The app is user friendly my cousin, who is 5, and I really enjoyed this.
My little cousin is very tech savvy. She enjoys using her ipad more than doing her homework so anything to get her off of games is wonderful, unfortunately, not every interactive learning app interests her, but this book got her attention from the first page.
At first, you think it is meant for a girl as it talks about baking a cake and has mermaid characters. I found the story to be very gender neutral.
I could not leave out her opinion. She enthusiastically said "I love it" the best part for her was the cake decorating even though she said that you should not put fish, snails and bats on it.
Although she was afraid of the gargoyle character especially when it was kneading the dough and we had to quickly move past the four pages with the gargoyle's picture on it, she still had a lot of fun.
My favorite part was the ending it teaches children to work together which is a very appropriate concept for this age group.
