Gorilla Band, the latest from Wasabi Productions, is just stunning! Teachers With Apps hasn’t seen kids this excited about a new app in quite some time! And they have every right to be, this app is spectacular – an absolutely adorable storybook with endearing characters. Miss Melody is the encouraging music teacher with ten young gorillas for students. Gorilla Band is a 3D adventure set in the heart of the jungle, which draws the audience in and delights readers with every swipe of the page! This app starts off on the quiet side with just one piano player, but by the end of this engaging tale an entire band is performing, including a sweet lead singer. Gorilla Band was designed with the toddler through primary grade child in mind, with educational components throughout. This app will have a long shelf life as the story appeals to wide range of ages.
Gorilla Band lends itself to the read and re-read concept. Each cheeky character has multiple dialogue and music tracks to increase engagement and make repeat reading rewarding. It’s 100% family fun.
This is our most interactive app yet, delivering an immersive 3D jungle-world and a cast of cute gorillas who learn to play instruments and form a brilliant band. You get a dazzling sensory story that is packed with educational benefits for 2-7 year olds. 2 original sound tracks and a bonus educational studio included.
10% of proceeds from app sales will be donated to VH1 Save The Music Foundation to support the charity’s work in restoring instrumental music education programs in America’s public schools and raising awareness about the importance music as part of each child’s complete education (until 31 December 2013).
