My Little Pony-Party of One app review

  If you don't know who My Little Pony is then you must have been living in another country for quite some time.  My teenager played with My Little Pony when she was young and her brother even liked to play (not sure he would admit to that now though).  I was taken back into the world of Pinkie Pie and her friends in this interactive educational app.  Although, I don't personally have pre-schoolers anymore I do know that they would love this app and would have fun learning to read while using it.
In case you were wondering who PlayDate Digital was here's a little blurb about them (taken from their website).

I love that you can track your child's goals and reading progress throughout the story.
My Little Pony: Party of One is based on a popular My Little Pony episode.  It follows the character Pinkie Pie as she tries unsuccessfully to invite her pony friends to her birthday party.
The sight words had pictures to go with the word which significantly helps your child remember the words.
I also liked that they story was interactive and you could click on a highlighted character and then they would do something or make a noise.  Very fun app for younger children, especially those that love My Little Pony.
