Pan the Fearless Beribolt App {Review and Giveaway}

{I was given the App Pan: The Fearless Beribolt to test at no cost. I am sharing my own opinion of the app. I am under no obligation to post about the app. I was given no other compensation for the app or posting about it on my blog.}pan app, pan beribolt

When I was asked to test out Pan: The Fearless Beribolt, I wasn’t expecting anything beyond a fun little game for Apollo to play. We often use the iPad to keep him still why we tube feed him and so I figured it wouldn’t hurt to have one more game for him to play.

I was really blown away by Pan…first of all, it’s not a traditional game, but more of an interactive story. It is easy for Apollo to use. Every page has a variety of characters and details that move and change. The graphics are beautiful. Pan is an adorable and loveable character…but what I was most impressed with as I watched Apollo interact with the story is Pan has to take responsibility for her actions. A shocking idea these days.

When Pan disobeys her elders, it affects everyone and she has to find a way to make it right…not just say sorry and go on with her day.  Even more amazing,  no one lectures her, no one tells her to “do better” or “behave”. No one needs to because Pan can see the effects of her actions. The other cool thing about this app is the “moral” of the story (your actions have consequences that affect other people) doesn’t seem contrived. Pan is impulsive, but not rebellious. She makes a mistake, then makes it right. She is respectful to her elders. She is forgiven for her wrongdoing. As a parent, these things are important to me.

This is an app I heartily recommend if your kids spend any time on an iPad or iPhone. I personally am really looking forward to more of Pan’s adventures.

    Sounds great! I am still trying to figure out how you know what apps to get for what age group. My baby is 9 months old and I am just not even sure where to start finding educational apps for her. Is it mostly through word of mouth?

    Sounds like an interesting game. I will say the trailer says nothing of the great stuff you mentioned. Good thing the had you review it 🙂

    This would be nice to win, since we’ve got several big trips this summer and who am I kidding, Ransom will probably get more iPad use than normal 🙂

    This sounds great for my little guy. And since our life includes a lot of overseas travel its always great to have lots of fun and new ways to entertain him. We would love to win this one 🙂

    Thanks for the contest. I would love some help reinforcing the concept of personal responsibility. If it’s on the ipad, my kids automatically think it’s fun.

    Hiya, Daisy is about a week younger than Apollo and has had DAA too and likes a bit of iPad entertainment, so I thought I would enter her for her first competition. I’m sure she would love this. X

    Would love to win this app! Our daughter has very limited time on it, but according to your review, this game could be something worthwhile for her during that time.

    I hate having my four year old on the iPad all the time, but it’s such an easy way for me to keep him quiet while I try to get school done with the other kids. It would be great to have something beneficial on it rather then just another netflix movie!
