SpeakaLegend Review (ToyTalk)

What It Is

SpeakaLegend is a talk-and-touch screen-recognition app which means that players can have two-way conversations with characters in the app. In this iOS app kids befriend mythical creatures on a quest to find the unicorn. A map screen lets kids choose the characters they want to talk to. Characters include the Loch Ness Monster, a mermaid, a minotaur, Bigfoot, a fairy, Cyclops, a dragon, a jackalope, a sphinx and the unicorn. The more you talk to each character the more stars you earn and the closer you get to unlocking the unicorn. It's easy to do, too. Whenever the app wants you to speak the microphone button pops up and you just press it and talk at the same time. Then the on-screen character will respond to what you've said and ask you more questions. For instance, the fairy might ask you what people wish for. We said "money" and the fairy, not knowing much about humans, asked us what money was and what you used it for. The app features up to two hours of built-in dialogue and interactive features let kids touch objects on the screen for animation and sound effects.

Is It Fun?

With this app, kids will have fun searching for the unicorn, exploring the different scenes and conversing with the creatures. Kids will really like the magic of interacting with the characters and hearing the characters respond to what kids have just said.

Who It’s For

SpeakaLegend is for ages 6 and up.
