  • Great

    by Alexander1977


  • Great fun

    by his_wifey08

    My 4 year old and 2 year old love these stories! The interactive pages are so much fun for them! Love all the books they have for iPad.

  • Fun

    by Mikeanddonna

    This is really cool and fun

  • It can't get much better than this.

    by Gnorn123

    StoryToys consistently makes the best storybook apps out there. As we have come to expect, this version of Rapunzel has every detail lovingly thought out, from the beautiful and atmospheric music to the amazing animation as the characters pop out and the pages of the storybook turn. Worth every penny.

  • Good, but touch activities are awkward

    by pdmavid

    The story and activities are fun, but its awkward and not intuitive. The Farm123 is perfect. When you touch an item in that book to pick it up, it stays in place under your finger. For this one, when you grab a flower, it moves out from under your finger leaving almost an inch of space between your finger and the item. It's awkward, and enough to make a toddler let go thinking they didn't grab the item correctly. Please fix this! The items don't need to move when you grab them! Maybe a slight movement to signify you've got it, but it's unusable the way it currently is.

  • Fantastic!!!!

    by Criticos123

    Please add Brazilian portuguese to all your books!!!!! They are fantastic and will sell like crazy!!!

    by Cellofab

  • Kids love it

    by rbarthle17

    Ran across this app at the Apple store. my 4 and 3 year olds instantly fell in love with it. Still play it all the time.

  • We love this series of 3D books

    by Special Apps, Special Kids

    All of the books I have from this series are engaging and well written.

  • Great!

    by Okerry

    My 7 year old enjoys this as much as my 3 year old.

  • Rapunzel

    by Marilynj100

    This is my granddaughter's favorite book! When I am with her, she listens to it at least 5 times in less than two hours!

  • Great app

    by ANWsTxMom

    My girls love the games and the story!

  • My 3 yo loves it!

    by designz

    My only problem is she has a hard time moving the music sheets, and even when I do it, it doesn't always accept my motions. Would love to add some of the others if they were in the $1-$2 range. I also like the idea of highlighting the words.

  • Love this book

    by Ktcorrine

    My son and I read this together every night, we both love it!

  • Great story

    by TRVanderlaan

    I love reading this story. My two year old niece loves hearing the story and interacting with the pages.

  • Terrific

    by AdahWu

    It's simply a great application. My kids love it!

  • Monotonous

    by Mitul Zaveri

    Gets a little monotonous.. Need more for a $4 app

  • SCAM ALERT!!!!!!

    by Big Papa Punk

    Do not buy!!! All that you purchase now is an empty book everything else you have to buy as an in app purchase. What a SCAM!!!

  • Too Many up costs.

    by NVegas

    Too many in-app purchase requirements to unlock levels. If the company is going to charge $3.99 for an app they shouldn't nickel and dime us. Let kids use the game without having to dish out more money. This app is too limited, not worth buying.

  • Get prepared to loose and arm and leg

    by Super Duper MacMan

    You pay 5 bucks for starters i.e. your arm, then comes your leg… Another 3 bucks to unlock the rest of the app! Not happy about that ,but I took it in the rear for my kid. Other than the price its a cool app.

  • Do not buy

    by UD ROC

    Not worth the money....then they want more money for puzzles and Stickers.....sorry I allowed them to rip me off AGAIN. DO NOT BUY!!!!!!!

  • I don' love it

    We think this is the best of all the storybooks. My kids make me read it all the time, the effects are wonderful. My only wish is they would make more. I've read this, LRRH, and H & G so many times it's driving me crazy

  • Such a great app

    by 安黯

    My five-year-old niece loves it so much~~! she always wants to play this app~~~ however, she skips all the stroy-telling parts,and straightly goes to play the little games.

  • Love it!

    by BreWil621

    My toddler grandchildren love Rapunzel! Today my granddaughter kept pointing at my purse and saying "baby, baby" -- she and her brother wanted me to get out my iphone so they could see the page of the baby Rapunzel, shake her rattle and make the jack in the box pop in and out. They also love to plant the flower seeds and water them. They are not even two yet, but they are quite good at it. I wish there were lots more books like this, but they must be beautifully illustrated like this one.

  • Awesome!

    by RPFCHC
