This summer’s hit, Planes: Fire & Rescue, brought excitement to our household. NDK really enjoyed the characters from the movie & had them all committed to memory by the time the movie was over. It only seemed logical to add the Disney Digital Books App, Planes:Fire & Rescue, to our collection.

This game is free, but does include In-App purchases (which I did not make). The story portion is not complete without the purchase. But, do not let that dissuade you! There are many hours of playtime with this app without the additional purchases!

Activities include card collecting, badges for achievements, jigsaw puzzles and a scene builder. The scene builder is NDK’s favorite! She loves to change the scenery, add different elements & then watch it come to life!

“The 3D Sticker Book is my favorite because when you push the start button, the stickers start to move. And they make noises, too.  I love that!” – NDK
