We received the Luca Lashes: The Brown Eyed Boy with the Magic Eyelashes and Luca Lashes and His First Trip to the Dentist apps at no charge, to review from Lucas Lashes, LLC. We appreciate their support of Jersey Family Fun that allows us to share with families information about toys we think your family may enjoy.
My two year old son has never played with an App before. I know it’s 2013, but this mom is a bit old fashion when it comes to little ones and technology. When I was offered a chance to review Luca Lashes eBook and App, I was excited to see what a children’s eBook was all about. Luca Lashes is a compilation series that focuses on helping children overcome fears. We were able to review Luca Lashes: The Brown Eyed Boy with the Magic Eyelashes and Luca Lashes and His First Trip to the Dentist.
I was skeptical that an eBook could capture my sons attention the way real books do. Boy, was I wrong! The moment I turned the book on, my son was flipping his way through the story. He was picking up on details in the picture and loved the way the story was coming alive on the screen.
