This is a beautifully-rendered app, the most artistic, non-commercial thing Disney has put out in quite some time. Paced like a Disney World ride, each scene is chock-full of details, everything is interactive, and the familiar song is given fantastic new arrangements and fresh poignancy. For those who foolishly complain it's too "slow and boring" for their kids: this is precisely the sort of thing your kids need -- a chance to slow down and notice the details, to appreciate something for its beauty and not how mindlessly entertaining it is.
My 2 year old LOVES this app
A wonderful app- and a great price!
Just having come back from Disney and actually riding the ride, this app is perfect and keeps the memory alive. It can be slow, but you can speed it up by sliding to the next page. The neat thing is that if you touch the different images on the page as it's moving along, it's interactive. The characters will laugh or speak...etc. it's not just a scrolling story. My daughter loves it and wants to do it more than once...all the while she's learning the words. Great app and the animation is flawless!
I haven't shown this to my toddler granddaughter yet, but checking it out myself I found it very difficult to switch back to Home, check out the different locales, and find the actual settings rather than the description of what they offered. It required significant pressure to activate changes, such that I question whether a three-year-old would be successful. I don't know how well the characters said hello or sang the song in other languages, but the small boy saying "Bonjour" didn't pronounce it correctly at all. I also wondered why French wasn't an option for a language choice. On the plus side the graphics are very attractive, but the interactive aspect is quite limited and for the most part all the children do when selected is to giggle, which gets boring.
Very cute. It's basically an animated board book.
I felt it necessary to put my two cents in about this app. It captures the spirit of the ride and very appropriate for those who are Disney fans and fans of the ride itself. It should be noted that it's an app for entertainment purposes. I believe the artwork and the program itself should merit a 5 star. If a rating isn't based on that, but merely whether your child found it amusing for only two minutes, it's the nature of children to be fickle with their interests. The program is beautifully done. Unfortunately, it doesn't replace engaging your children on a one-on-one basis.
This app perfectly captures the spirit of the beloved "It's a small world" ride. Vibrant, colorful and filled with interactive content, this app will give you and your child the sense that you can touch almost item in view and get a custom animation. Totally worth the money.
This app is truly beautiful! My son loves it. Really adorable. Makes us even more eager for our upcoming Disney trip!!!
This is a wonderfully cute app. My 3yr old loves it and loves flying in the balloon from one scene to the next.
It's a great app for young children to experience the ride who can't make it to disney world!
Pricey, but my daughter loves it. Very cool layout.
Charming animations and music. My nieces love this and as a fan of the attraction, I do, too. Well done, Disney!
My 4 year old son loves this app. The artwork is really well done, and the sing-along feature with the fireworks is also fun. I think it would be really nice if there was a mode that sings the song and automatically scrolls across the book pages at the same time, if you added that it would be perfect!
Purchased for my Grand Daughters ages 5 & 3 - They quickly get bored with the slow moving app that offers no challenges.
I purchased this app because my daughter and I are big Disney fans. We were not disappointed. She plays it regularly.
... the graphics are pixelated on the iPad 3, which is pretty disappointing. Please issue an update with a true HD version. I so wanted this to look gorgeous on the new iPad.
Both my 3 1/2 year old son and 19 month daughter LOVE this app! They love how almost every thing on every page is interactive. It's just awesome. Makes me want to go back to the Magic Kingdom so bad!
My 1 1/2 yr old absolutely loves it! Great graphics and interactive screens with the story. Would definitely recommend it!!
We were looking forward to something else. Actually we were very bored. We expected more. BORING.
I was really excited to find this app, but that excitement faded quickly as I began checking out the game. Navigation is slow and awkward and the children portrayed are caricatures of their respective cultures. This app could have been such a wonderful way to introduce my daughter and students to other cultures, but it falls way short of what I have come to expect from Disney!
Could be so much more. I'd expect more from Disney.
Very expensive for so little.
Our 3 year old loves this ride and sings the song practically everyday. We thought this app would be perfect but it was very disappointing. It would be nice if it was more interactive. We paid way too much for the two minutes our son has ever spent on the app. Wish we never had purchased it.
This app is not free. Please fix the wrong Korean spelling.
Don't waste your money.. Although graphics are nice. It sure isn't worth $3.99. Repetitive and didn't keep my toddler occupied.
Very slow moving good for about 5 minutes of entertainment for a 4 year old. Would be good for a 1 year old maybe but goes very slow. This app should only be 0.99 really not worth 4 dollars. Disappointing out of Disney app.
App is a little expensive for what it is, but, the artwork is amazing. My 4 year old did not want to stop playing with it. It's her favorite ride at Disneyland and World. If your child likes It's a Small World, then this is the app for you!
My 2 yr, 11 yr old and I love it! It works Everytime never crashes and I gets us that Disney fix between visits. It's beautifully done and the activities are great!
So babyish!!!! Want my $$$ BACK NOW
This app is fabulous. Just what you would expect from Disney! The graphics are truly unique and very artistic. I hope people can realize what a CLASS ACT this is, and appreciate it. LOVE IT!!!
Love this app!!! The jazz music at the beginning is wonderful! Never crashes, and I felt LIKE I WAS ON THE RIDE! The graphics are truly amazing. As usual, Disney raises the bar! SIMPLY SPECTACULAR!
This app keeps shutting down on me. If that's what this version said is fixed, it's not.
Crashes way too much!!! Want my $$$ back !!!! Never works!!! This woud be fab if it stopped crashing in a world of tears!!!! Me and my 2 year old is so frustrated with this app!!!!
I hate this app it is nothing like the ride I would suggest that people go to Disney if they really want to see the ride this app is a peice of garbage don't buy!
Slow and boring! My son is 2.5 and gets bored with in seconds. I wish it went faster because it is cute old school disney. Not worth the $4!
The illustrations, iconic music and interactivity have my little ones loving this app! Well done!
My son loves this game butt it's so big can you guys please cut back the amount of memory it takes up
Very disappointed? I am unable to even open it! I read that the crash had been resolved for I Pad1, not true!
It has some cute graphics, but really, this is overrated. I am nostalgic about Its a Small World and that is the only way I spent $3.99 for it. Otherwise I think there are far better apps for better prices out there.
Beautiful graphics but nothing to do. My 3.5 yr old lost interest within minutes. And she's a Disney freak!
Save your money if you have ipad 1. Version 1.1 still crashes my ipad on the second page.
Wast of money do not get it
Artwork is fantastic, beautiful animations. Worth every cent!
The characters are so adorable and the animation effects are great. Have had no problems with crashes. My 4yr old loves it. I've always thought of the small world song as a poem, thats how this app treats it, it doesnt just sing the song over and over like the ride. Great job disney!
Crashes every time we try to go beyond the first page. Feels like we got burned for $3.99. Hope they come up with an update to fix it. So disappointed. :-(
Waste of money. I want my $ back!
Such a beautiful interactive storybook. Subtle & clever. It captures the spirit & charm of the Mary Blair original art & inspiration for the Disneyland ride. Why do people complain it is not exactly like the ride? It's an APP! For an electronic device! It will never be as good as the actual ride!! After reading enough negative reviews I was concerned but chanced it anyway. I am SO glad. It was worth it! I do think it is ridiculous that you have to pay twice to have it on your iPhone & iPad, hence the 4 stars. If they would fix that, I would easily give this 5 stars. Stop ripping people off Disney!!
Beautifully done. A must have app!
