A Charlie Brown Christmas is hitting iPhones and iPads, and is an excellent, faithful tribute to the cartoon classic. In addition to recreating the wonderful Christmas story in iPad storybook form, kids and adults of all ages can play games and activities based on scenes from the cartoon, like finger painting, caroling, playing Schroeder’s piano, and engaging in a Christmas lights competition that can unlock goodies to decorate your Charlie Brown Christmas tree.
The storybook is bolstered by narration by Peter Robbins, the original voice of Charlie Brown in the cartoon. Educational games and activities for the younger crowd help to develop reading and music skills, and the app uses the touch screen in a few different ways to help get the whole family interested in this modern version of a timeless classic.
The Charlie Brown Christmas App is available now for iPad and iPhone for $4.99, but the iPad’s larger screen will certainly be a better platform for you to enjoy the rich images and animation the storybook has to offer. There are also in-app purchases available, ranging from $0.99 to $1.99 in price.
