Designed to get a child talking, this is a very basic puppet/animation experience, where you are asked to choose expressions for your puppet, and then record a short snip of dialog using your iPad's microphone. Testers found the instructions to be a bit heavy handed in part because they loop every few seconds when the app is not in use. If you're using an iPad, you'll have to manually change the screen size.

The lip syncing is crude, and you can't move the characters around the scene. But the upside to this lack of features is simplicity. Work is saved automatically. Animal Antics is a product of the Reach Every Reader initiative at the Harvard Graduate School of Education, in collaboration with FableVision Studios.
