Disney Junior has just released a new interactive episode of their popular preschool series Sofia the First, for their Disney Junior Appisodes app for iOS devices (iPad, iPhone, and iPod Touch). Developed by Disney/ABC Television Group’s Digital Media Team, the Disney Junior Appisodes app provides interactive viewing of so-called “Appisodes,” which allows fans to tap, touch, swipe, tilt, shake, and talk along with various activities and mini-games embedded into full episodes of their favorite Disney Junior shows.
The Sofia the First Appisode is titled “The Big Sleepover,” and has kids playing along as Sofia helps her old friends from the village fit in with her new set of princess pals during her first ever royal slumber party. The appisode features a number of exciting, fun-filled activities such as:
– Kids get to pick outfits and hairstyles for Sofia’s friends during a royal makeover session.
– Complete jigsaw puzzles from four scenes in the show to move the story forward.
– Help Sofia apply her tiara.
– Decorate a fan that will then appear in the show.
– Go for an elevator ride in the castle with Sofia. A stop on the wrong floor will mean an unexpected run in with Cedric.
– Take a picture of themselves with Clover.
The Disney Junior Appisodes App can be downloaded for free via the Apple App Store, and comes with a free Mickey Mouse Clubhouse Road Rally Appisode. Additional Appisodes from other shows (including Mickey Mouse Clubhouse, Jake and the Neverland Pirates, Doc McStuffins, and the aforementioned Sofia the First) can be purchased in-app for $4.99.
