Our family loves classical music. So many different styles to pick from that there is rarely enough time to enjoy it all. However, some families find it more challenging to expose their children to classical music. With that in mind, the new Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood app has been launched.
We were fortunate to receive a copy to review and share our thoughts here as part of a sponsored campaign with Giants Are Small and MomSelect. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
About Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood App
Giants are Small is the production company behind the release of Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood. This is a revival of the classic Peter and the Wolf tale. Instead of a young boy in a village setting, this modern day Peter goes to Hollywood to meet his hippie grandfather. He’s recently been orphaned and is finding it a challenge to make new friends. The wolf comes into the story when Peter decides to capture the escaped zoo animal.
The different characters of the story are narrated and brought to life by Rock n’ Roll legend, Alice Cooper. The music is performed by The National Youth Orchestra of Germany.

Our Thoughts on Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood App
Our youngest son, J, who is six years old was the primary tester of this app. He’s a beginning reader who still enjoys having stories read to him. The Peter and the Wolf in Hollywood app does just that. He can sit back and enjoy a fun story with the classical music going in the background.
I was really impressed with the visual representation of the story. In an age of digital effects, the creators opted to have the visuals be done by hand and then digitally captured for production.
The deluxe version of the app includes 8 games where the kids can be interactive. He told me building the robot was one of his favorites in the app. Of course, robots are cool!
There’s also bonus features including a behind the scenes look at how they produced it.

Overall, this is a fun app to entertain the kids while exposing them to classical music. Taking approximately 50 minutes from start to finish, this could be a great activity for kids when traveling. Just plug in a headset and go!
