Wake Up Mo! ~ 3D Interactive Pop-Up Book

“Wake Up Mo! ~ 3D Interactive Pop-Up Book” is developed by StoryToys Entertainment Limited. It is normally $2.99 and is free for a limited time. It does not contain in-app purchases. It is compatible with the iPhone, iPod touch, and iPad and requires iOS 6.0 or later.

*Awarded The Kirkus Star For Books of Exceptional Merit*

Wake Up Mo! is a morning routine app for tablets and mobile phones. It is the follow-up to the best-selling bedtime app Goodnight Mo (#1 in US and 40 other countries worldwide). As the sun rises and a new day begins, Mo, a cute little monster, gets ready for school. Beautiful imagery, gently rhyming narration, and a cheerful soundtrack make this the perfect way for little ones to learn how to get ready for the day ahead.

Wake Up Mo! helps young children build a routine by completing tasks in the same order each morning, such as eating breakfast, getting dressed, brushing teeth and packing a bag. It’s fun too: little ones will discover charming surprises
in each of the 3D pop-up scenes: whether waking up Mo and the other animals, helping Mo get dressed, catapulting toast onto Teddy’s plate, or brushing messy ‘morning hair’.

Wake Up Mo! is part of the StoryToys Junior line. Designed for young children aged 15 months to 3+ years old, it includes the following features:

• Full 3D experience – it’s just like a real book
• 8 enchanting 3D pop-up scenes packed with simple animations and interactive elements
• Read to Me or Read it Myself modes
• Available in English, French, German and Spanish
• Fully narrated in each language by professional actors
• Wonderfully illustrated, with beautiful, colorful imagery
• Featuring a charming musical score and playful sound effects
