There are FIVE Disney Princess Apps on sale for $1.99 right now through Friday (Feb 15) at the iTunes store (regularly $4.99). I’m here tell you about the Disney Princess – Royal Party app and the Beauty and the Beast: Storybook Deluxe app.
Royal Party celebrates Rapunzel becoming a Disney Princess! This app is loaded with a lot of fun for little girls! There are Coloring Pages, Puzzles, and a story to read about Rapuzel, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg – look at what else there is to discover!
Pictured below is the Princess Dress-up game. Choose one of six princesses to dress up. Princesses can be dolled up with dresses, shoes, jewelry, hats or tiaras! There are endless combinations, and once you’re done with one, go dress up the next Princess!
There are a couple of crafts and recipes your child can make with your help. Step-by-step instructions are listed within the app, making it easy for your child to understand. These crafts and recipes are geared towards a ‘Princess Party’ theme… so if your daughter has a Birthday coming up – this would be perfect!!
Another fun activity is designing your own Party scene with Rapunzel, Flynn and all of the other Princes and Princesses! There are a couple of backdrops you can choose, and then you can place each Prince and Princess where ever you like on the page!
I still haven’t touched on everything this app has to offer! When your child creates a special ‘sticker’ scene or coloring page, she can email it to a friend or family member. Between activity selections, funny scenes from the Rapunzel movie will play. This is an entertaining app for any Princess fan!
Beauty and the Beast: Storybook Deluxe tells the traditional story of Belle and highlights each word as it is read (or your older ones can read the story on their own.)
On a few pages of the story, you can gently shake the iPad and a few of the animals will “move” creating a 3D illusion effect on the page. Pictured below, the wolves move toward the beast as if they’re about to attack.
Just like most of Disney’s storybook apps, this one includes coloring pages, puzzles and a few animated clips. A fun game that is included is a maze.
Throughout the app, music from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast is played. There is also a “rose” search throughout the entire story. As you find a rose on select pages, touch it and it will find it’s way into your rose collection at the very end of the book. There are a dozen roses to find!
Again, these 2 apps and a few other Disney Princess apps are on sale for $1.99 through Feb 15, 2013. A fun Valentine’s gift for your little Princess!

Yesterday, I had a chance to go out to the El Capitan Theater in Los Angeles, CA, to get a first ever look at the new Disney game and platform, ‘Disney Infinity‘. Imagine a world inhabited by all your favorite Disney characters, where anything can happen, as long as you have the imagination to make it happen. This is the world of ‘Disney Infinity’, a very fun and exciting new platform Disney has created to give fans a chance to delve deeper into the Disney worlds like never before. The game seems to be similar to the ‘Skylander’ platform game that has become popular over the last year or so, but I can definitely say that I’m really buying into ‘Infinity’ more than I ever bought into ‘Skylanders’.
The game looks to be a cool way to explore the universes Disney characters live in a way we’ve never really had the chance to before. All the worlds throughout the game will look and feel exactly like the worlds we’ve grown to know and love, making you feel like you’re actually walking around inside the films and TV shows. It’ll also give you the chance to answer questions you may have always wondered, but could never answer, like who would win in a sword fight, Captain jack Sparrow or Phineas? The game is going to be hugely interactive, giving you a chance to also build your own worlds, and create your own unique take on the characters. The idea initially started when ‘Toy Story 3′ was in production, and the idea is what if there was a game where we got to be like Andy, and have all our favorite Disney characters as toys and play with them in new and exciting adventures, making them anything we wanted it to be. It goes back to the basics of everything we ever loved about playing with toys when we were younger, and the game really feels just like that.
Watch the first official trailer for Disney Infinity, an exciting new video game available in summer 2013 on all major gaming platforms including PS3, Wii, Wii U, Xbox 360, and Nintendo 3DS!

DISNEY INFINITY unlocks the freedom to play with some of your favorite Disney and Disney/Pixar worlds like never before! You can experience adventures in the worlds of Pirates of the Caribbean, The Incredibles and Monsters University – take on the role of Sulley, the naturally gifted ‘scarer’; become Captain Jack Sparrow, the sword-wielding pirate; or transform yourself into Mr. Incredible, one of the world’s greatest crime-fighters. Battle enemies, solve puzzles, overcome obstacles and complete a variety of other unique quests.
Epic Mickey 2 – The Power of Two came out last month and My Daughter and I have not put this game down since. It is so much fun and is easy to pick up and play for just a few minutes or a few hours. There is so much to do and explore we just love it!
Here is some info about the game:
In “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two,” gamers will play as Mickey Mouse and for the first time ever, Oswald the Lucky Rabbit, Walt Disney’s first cartoon star, in an all-new adventure of creativity and discovery. Created by industry luminary Warren Spector and Disney Interactive’s Junction Point game development studio, “Disney Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two” returns Mickey Mouse and Oswald the Lucky Rabbit toWasteland, an alternate world filled with 80 years of forgotten Disney characters and theme park attractions. But for the first time, Mickey and Oswald will join forces as true partners – Mickey with his magical paintbrush that wields paint and thinner, and Oswald with his powerful remote control that allows him to command electricity.
We want to share with you (thanks to our friends at Disney) your very own copy of Epic Mickey 2! This week we are giving away 5 copies of Epic Mickey 2 – The Power of Two on any game console (even the WiiU) and we are even throwing in a pair of Oswald Ears too!
