Plum's Creaturizer is a delightful app which engages children's imaginations and encourages them to go out and explore nature. The app, from PBS Kids and featuring the lovable Plum from PBS's “Plum's Landing”, allows kids to create a unique, imaginative, creature. It then prompts the kids to take pictures of the creature outside, in nature or around the house.
The picture prompts are missions, or challenges, asking the child to take pictures of their special creature blending in with the scenery, or defending itself against another animal, and more.
The app can accommodate a billion (literally, a billion) combinations of different creature parts – so each one is guaranteed to be unique. It then asks the student to explain where the creature lives, what it's diet would be, how it makes homes, and other such questions.
At the end you can watch a slide show of a day in the life of your special creature.
This is one of those apps that really thinks outside the box, is engaging and very imaginative.
Compatible with iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad.
