Free App!!! PlayTown: My Story Maker #sponsored

I participated in a campaign on behalf of Childs Play for Playtown. I received a promotional item as a thank you for participating.

I recently downloaded the free PlayTown: My Story Maker  app for kids, ages 3-9.   As a parent, I wanted to make sure what my kids were playing, so I took a twirl at it myself!  The PlayTown: My Story Maker app allows kids to create, personalize and narrate stories while bringing their imagination to life! Children have rich imaginations, and it’s the responsibility of a parent to help nurture, encourage and reinforce their children’s’ creative expression.  An active imagination can help develop certain life skills such as communication and problem solving.

Here’s how PlayTown works:
  • Begin your story by selecting an Adventure Play Set; play sets can range from traveling to playing sports to even exploring outer space!
  • My Story Maker invites you to create and build adventures, select your own stages, props, accessories and cast of lovable characters—such as princesses, monsters and jungle friends—and even use personal photos and drawings!  There are three fun-filled themed adventure play sets
    - Pirate's Treasure Hunt
    - Princess Party 
    - Travel Around the World 
  • When completed, see your creation with the play back feature and share with family and friends within the app.
  • PlayTown is FREE to download for Android and iOS. Additional play sets can be purchased for $1.99 each.  That is the only thing, I did not like about this app.  It seemed too easy for a child to click on the playsets and make purchases, I looked, but could not see an area for parents to deny in app purchases on this specific app.

This is a great app for kids!  It not only encourages kids to use their imaginations, but to get creative and make their own stories and videos.  Kids now have an outlet to use their imaginations in a fun way, adding their own music, characters, etc. all them to personalize their own creations.

 This app  also has some cool features for parents too.  It has a guide for parents, where you can learn more about each way of play!  Dig in a little deeper and learn what you children are creating and how they are as well!  It even offers tutorials for both kids and parents!  There is no guessing with this app!
