From the creators of the Winston Show & SpeakaZoo comes a new app called SpeakaLegend which is FREE for a limited time. Kids befriend and speak to 10 different legendary characters: Big Foot, Loch Ness Monster, Mermaid, Fairy, Cyclops, Minotaur, Dragon, Jackalope, Sphinx and Unicorn. The app uses speech recognition technology so that kids can have actual conversations with the characters. They become world explorers on a magical quest to find and speak to the Unicorn. Check out this ingenious and fun app from ToyTalk – great for helping kids with conversational language. Before children can speak with the characters, parents are required to give permission via email. Read more about Toy Talk’s privacy policy at: ToyTalk | Legal | Privacy Policy.

Here are my earlier reviews of other Toy Talk apps.

speak a zooFrom the creators of the Winston Show comes another great interactive app – SpeakaZoo, the only zoo where the animals talk with you. This educational  app is currently featured as one of the “Best New Apps” by Apple. The SpeakaZoo houses 20 different animals from 4 different habitats. Each one has a lot of character – a fast-talking octopus, a porcupine that needs a hug, an angry beaver, a sleepy bear, etc. And each character has a lot to talk about. The animals ask kids questions then “listen” to their answers. The conversation continues when the animal responds to what the child just answered – fun!

Parents are asked to create an account with a valid email address so that they have full control over all account information and content for children under 13. From the ToyTalk privacy policy FAQs: “ToyTalk apps involve characters that interact with users. When children use ToyTalk apps, audio recordings and photographs of such interactions are captured as part of this use. We may add the ability to capture video in the future. In that case, we will update this FAQ to describe how we use those recordings too.” Read more at: http://www.toytalk.com/legal/

The Winston Show is an adorable app for kids 6+. Winston (a self-proclaimed, yellow fellow) and his sidekick Ellington have created the first talk show starring you! Special guests include Blackbeard the Pirate, Marie Antoinette, and the Blue Whale. Kids visit 6 different studios within the app. In Studio 1, they become a contestant on a quiz show called Win with Winston. Studio 2 features Fireside Chats on a variety of kid-friendly subjects such as magic and chores. In Studios, 3 kids can choose to become the star in two movies: Squabble Among the Stars or Winston Sly, Private Eye. They battle colorful characters (such as Lewis & Clark) in Studio 4′s You vs., another game show. Studio 5 is the Costume Department where kids can play dress-up in an assortment of costumes. And finally, Studio 6 features the Writing Room where kids choose the path of a story. This app is fabulous for helping kids with conversational language because the characters listen and talk back! It’s quite ingenious and could be really fun – for kids and adults. Adults will love seeing kids interact with Winston and friends. And, they will understand all of the jokes. 🙂 Delightful!!
