The girls and I had found a lot of fun dress-up apps for the iPad but we often ran into the problem that the controls were a little too complicated for my youngest, Ava. We wanted to make something that would require no instructions, since she couldn’t read at the time, and very little fine motor control. We also liked some of the dress-up apps that said encouraging phrases like “nice outfit” and “good job”. However, we thought these were a little stuffy and we could make them more fun. So we had Anna and Ava create their own phrases and, well, they are certainly interesting. Once we showed people the app the first response was always “Can I add my own voice as well?”, so we added the ability to record your own phrases and comments, which ended up taking much longer than the rest of the app combined! But I think it was worth it because it becomes an activity in itself.
