When I was a pup, I’d have given pretty much anything up to and including my Magic Steps shoes to play with a colony of penguins. Who am I kidding, I still would (although if any zoo keepers are reading, I’m afraid I no longer have those shoes).
Today’s kids are a step closer than I ever was, thanks to the Penguins of Madagascar Read and Play iPad app. For £4, you can get up close and personal with the popular scheming penguins, which first won our hearts by escaping from New York City Zoo in Madagascar.
The two storybooks, a joke book and interactive activities like a kaleidoscope, mazes, spot the difference and colouring board should keep little minds occupied, while parents can amuse themselves by reading the stories aloud and recording their voices.
