Pollock's Toy Theatre for iPad
Pollock's Toy Theatre must be one of the most charming apps in the iTunes store. Modeled after the same Victorian toy theatres that the Covent Garden toyshop famously stocks, this app brings a bygone era to digital life.
Children (and adults!) can create their own stage, choose characters and then record and edit their own plays. My kids love this - particularly the playback button when they can hear their own voices booming from onstage and see their mini theatre come to life. Of course their favourite thespian is the lion! The poor thing is always typecast as the ferocious, human-eating predator...
Available from the iTunes app store for £2.99.
