You can probably tell by now that I am a little bit more than excited about the new movie – The Nut Job – coming to theaters on January 17th. The previews all look hysterical and frankly – I am ready for another great movie that wont make me cry. (love you mean it Saving Mr Banks) This week Cupcake Digital – one of my favorite app companies – released the official app for The Nut Job, and I got a chance to try it out first hand. We LOVED it.
Cupcake Digital, Inc. announces the arrival of the official app for The Nut Job movie. The app features an interactive story based on the hilarious animated family film during which Surly the squirrel goes on an adventure of a lifetime when his independent nature gets him kicked out of the park and into the big city. He then becomes an unlikely hero when he spots Maury’s Nut Shop just in time to help the park animals get ready for winter. The app allows kids to experience this high-stakes, nutty caper in an interactive format that includes four fun activities so kids can participate along with the movie characters. The app is available for an introductory price of 99 cents on the Apple App Store, Amazon Appstore for Android, Google Play and the Barnes & Noble NOOK Store.
My favorite part of the app is the game Whack A Rat. Remember the old Whack A Mole arcade game? Yes, it is just like that. I used to play that game for hours at the arcade. Talk about stress relief. I have stepped away from my desk on more than one occasion in the last two days to pound some rats on my phone instead of firing off a “colorful” email or Facebook status 😉
Midge really liked the Coloring Section and made us a half dozen “master pieces” asking for each one to be printed. I have to admit – “coloring” with ZERO mess is sure nice. She also watched the trailer no less than 10 times and can almost recite the book by memory… did I mention we have only had the app two days?
I am excited to have this app on both my iPhone and my iPad and will be taking it with us on our road trip tomorrow, along with our The Nut Job Inspired Homemade Trail Mix. You can download it now at the introductory price of $.99 – it will go up to $1.99 soon! Whack A Rat makes it worth every penny… SO much cheaper than bail. 🙂
