Mongo’s App of the Week: Elmo Calls







It was a rainy Sunday afternoon, and Mongo was in a sad mood because he couldn’t go outside to play.  As Mongo lazily moped around his house Mongo’s iPhone started ringing.  Who could it be?   The caller ID said Elmo!  Mongo suddenly cheered up and answered the call, it was a Facetime call with Elmo, Mongo’s favorite red friend.

Elmo said hi in his silly way, and then he told Mongo a joke about Cookie Monster!  After Mongo stopped giggling, Elmo blew his nose and it sounded like a trumpet!  Mongo continued to roll on the floor laughing.

Mongo laughed so hard, he started crying.  So he quickly wiped his tears of joy, and waved goodbye to Elmo.  He looked out the window and all of a sudden, the sun came out, and finally, Mongo was able to go outside and play.  Thanks Elmo for cheering up Mongo, it turned out to be a great day after all!

This app is perfect for toddlers and preschoolers, and is a $0.99 download.  The app does have in-App purchases but hides it from the child’s reach by using a clever parent’s button that you need to slide to the right to view the in-app purchases.

You can download Elmo Calls from the iTunes App Store and works best with the iPhone 4 and iPhone 4s (devices that have the front facing camera).
