Lazoo Magic Stickers - a wonderful "What if...?" app

Magic Stickers! by PlayDate Digital
Eleanor over at Smart Apps for Kids recently reviewed this app and gave it the coveted FIVE stars! This is what she said:

Bottom line: An animated sticker app that reaches new creative heights. Much fun and frivolity for all the family. Great for all ages, but ideal for the young (and young at heart).

Lazoo apps are nothing short of awesome. The incredible colors captivate kids while the options for imaginative interaction are endlessly inspiring. Creative thinking is an essential skill in today's society. Technology use means there is more change more often and tomorrow's leaders need to come up with solutions to problems that do not even exist yet.  Kids with special needs often see the world differently anyway, and an app like Magic Stickers may give an insight into how their brain is wired. There are lots of prompts to get children started on the "What if..." line of thinking. This is a fabulous app for classes that use Tony Ryan's Thinker's Keys.

From iTunes:
Is it a piece of broccoli… or a tree? A bread roll… or a bus? Snow cones…or ice bergs? From Lazoo, maker of Parents Choice-Award Winning apps: Squiggles and Let’s Color comes Magic Stickers, the ultimate stickering app that lets kids see the world in a new light. Magic Stickers includes eight whimsical scenes featuring Lazoo’s internationally award-winning art; each with a selection of animated stickers that move and interact with the setting. Kids can also create their own stickers and watch them “magically” come alive. A hand-scribbled orange swings and drops from a tree. A child’s sketched bird glides across the sky. Home-made bees buzz around flowers. Truly magical! Hit “Go” and watch all the stickers animate, bringing the scene to life. Place the stickers wherever you want and make as many original stickers as you want. Endless possibilities…Endless hours of play!
