Screen Play App of the Week – Kidoodle: Pirate Scribblebeard's Treasure with Oscar & Josephine


Kidoodle: Pirate Scribblebeard’s Treasure with Oscar & Josephine

Works on: iPad, Android and Nook Color

Cost: $1.99  

For: Kids who love to doodle


There are many doodling apps in the market, but few that offer as creative a mix of doodling, imagination and storytelling as Kidoodle: Pirate Scribblebeard’s Treasure with Oscar & Josephine. This app is fantastic for kids who love to color and draw, but instead of providing a simple blank page and color palettes, Kidoodle offers a built-in story that kids illustrate and customize in their own unique way.

The story unfolds with each page as a partially drawn picture. Kids can add to each picture, filling in the pirate outlines, drawing figures in the bathtub, and coloring in their creations. Kids can save their drawings over and over again and the best part is when their illustrations come to life with animation, accompanied with narration by Oscar & Josephine. There is no right or wrong to this app, just boatloads of creativity and fun.
