Green Kids – Mountain Stories App Review
Green Kids – Mountain Stories is an animated free-flowing storybook that shares dozens of scenes from the mountains, showing both real-life situations like seeing deer or walking a trail and fanciful scenes like a genie popping out of an uncorked bottle. It’s built to explore by sliding and tapping, and many of the animations have multiple responses to keep kids’ interest.
- 6 mountain landscapes to explore
- 30 play scenes
- Easy and seamless navigation around the mountain scenes and between seasons
- Fun animations to discover and use in your story
- Additional mini-games available
Green Kids – Mountain Stories is a high quality app that performs exactly as expected and is well-designed for the target audience of young children. Kids will have no problems uncovering all of the scenes and animations, and will delight in discovering new ones. Users begin by choosing winter or summer, followed by one of three main mountain scenes, then can explore to the right, the left, up and down in each one. In each section, there are characters, animals, and other animated features that respond to taps and swipes.

This app will be best if used with a parent or mentor who can encourage discussion and story telling as children play. There are loads of items to discuss and the app’s lessons of environmental responsibility, interacting with wild life, and so forth can be emphasized easily. Kids can create elaborate stories triggered by each animation, and they can discover just what life is hiding in the many mountain scenes.
In addition to the fun of exploring all of the scenes in both summer and winter modes (they are quite different!), the app includes three mini-games, as well. There is a coloring book mode, a jigsaw puzzle with adjustable difficulty level, and a memory game, also with adjustable difficulty levels.
This app will be entertaining for young children who love surprises. Just moving around each scene leads to new discoveries and several of the animations have multiple modes, like the witch that flies by and zaps the squirrel to change his colors. The sound effects are also quite entertaining, and kids will enjoy triggering them.
Many kids will be particularly entertained by the underground scenes where they can explore tunnels and the creatures that live in them.
Green Kids – Mountain Stories costs $1.99 to download. There is quite a bit of content to explore, and developers are planning to add at least one more section with its two seasons and six scenes. It’s a good value for young children – wholesome and fun and full of entertaining scenes.
