Little Fox Music Box features two well-known melodies – London Bridge and Old MacDonald – along with a gentle folk tune simply named “Evening Song”. The two former songs are sung by children and the words are displayed along the top for your little one to learn. You can also enable karaoke mode, which removes the vocals so any budding singer can take over!
What really makes this app shine is the wonderful animations. Almost every part of the screen is interactive and you can scroll to either side for more content. The characters exhibit a wide range of traits – some can be moved, some will interact with one another and some will make interesting sounds. I personally love the ice-skating cow and horse! In the Old Macdonald song, you can switch between seasons and the animals do completely different things.
If all this isn’t enough, there is a song studio included as well. This features a variety of animals and objects, each making their own unique sound when touched. Cleverly, you can touch things in any order and you will get a surprisingly good tune! The app is also bilingual, you can choose between UK/US English and German.
Little Fox Music Box is available for £1.99 in the UK App Store and has just had a graphical update for the New iPad’s retina display!
