This one’s for the little one at home. Something to keep your young one distracted and occupied as you finish that report your boss needs by tomorrow in peace.
Little Fox Music Box is basically an interactive musical box that brings to life, somewhat, different nursery rhymes by allowing your child to interact with the elements of each rhyme. With 3 old school favorites, “London Bridge”, “Old McDonald Had a Farm”, and the “Evening Song”, your child will be kept enthralled by Little Fox Music Box.
The artistic department behind Little Fox Music Box deserves a mention, as the main drawing factor of this app seems to be the well thought out graphics. While not quite the 3D realistic graphics expected from games and whatnot, Little Fox Music Box appeals with cutesy but yet clearly drawn pictures and animations that totally seemed well designed.
The downside to Little Fox Music Box would be how there are only 3 songs available at the moment, which does not quite justify the $2.99 price tag. Although Little Fox Music Box does turn each song into an interactive story of its own, I would still have expected to pay perhaps only $0.99 at the most for an app like this.
For an app targeting children aged 2 to 6, Little Fox Music Box might be a tad overpriced but it does its job well. Kids will love this app, but the price tag might make you reconsider your purchase.
Would I Buy Again:No
Learning Curve:Easy. Nothing to learn, just tap and enjoy.
Who Is It For:Children between the ages of 2 and 6.

London is a busy town! Especially since the bridge has a gap. Japanese tourists, a pirate and a parrot, a crocodile, a mermaid and a whale, a cab with a periscope...everything moves and can be touched while the little fox dances behind the windows of the towers.
Many animals live in this spectacular night scene, you just have to find them. The owl follows your finger, fascinating ghosts are flying through the air, the stars burst into fireworks. Do you know how to paint with northern lights?
OLD MAC DONALD HAD A FARM
While old Mac Donald sleeps under his tree all year, the animals go crazy. Seasons change if you press the button...find out what cow, bee and the young chicks do in summer, spring and winter. How about the little fox? He dresses up as a sheep!
Birds, Frogs and dishes sing and cling! Mummy Fox is knitting to the rhythm and the little fox is dancing. Almost everything in the studio makes a noise, be ready to explore every little corner.
"I downloaded Little Fox Music Box last night and my very active 18-month year old daughter (who doesn’t typically stay still for longer than 15 seconds) sat on my lap laughing, clapping, and interacting with the scenes for at least 30 minutes and wasn’t ready to stop(....)It´s a fantastic app!"
