What we love…

A great message portrayed in this app. It’s always great to hear an Aussie accent in an app as they are pretty rare to come by! 

What we’d love to see…

A universal app!

Our Rating

Written and illustrated by a fellow Australian, Ben Taylor of Sydney-based BTC Enterprises, Danny Dimple Dares to Dream – Soccer is a story about a small boy with a big dream – to become a world famous soccer star! This delightful storybook app, which is available for the iPhone and iPad, takes us on the journey through from Danny’s backyard into his dream and promotes the message that it’s OK to have a dream and that you can actually achieve it if you put your mind to it.

The story is written as a rhyme and is available in ‘Read to Me’ and ‘Read by Myself’ formats with interactive elements hidden throughout each page for the reader to find. Tapping the interactive characters or objects will not stop the narration (as some apps do that I find highly annoying!). ‘Read to Me’ mode is narrated by another Aussie, Jeremy Fowler (available in English only), and as he reads each word is highlighted.

This app thoroughly appealed to my two eldest soccer-mad sons. Ben did a fantastic job with the illustrations in the story which really are quite striking (no soccer pun intended!). The background music is highly enjoyable and fun sound effects are scattered throughout the story. Occasionally however, the music seemed louder than the narrator but only on one or two pages.

Danny Dimple Dares to Dream is an inspirational story of hope and encourages kids that having a dream, no matter how big, is something they can work towards.
