Minnie Bow Maker for iPhone and iPad review

Minnie Bow Maker is a fun app for little kids where they get to be involved in Minnie's Bow-Tique from the Minnie Mouse Bow-Toons series on Disney Junior. It features three stories, a bow maker, and a runway show to show off the bows made by your kids.

Minnie Bow Maker includes a story about Daisy getting ready for a picnic with Donald, a tale of Millie and Melody preparing for a party, and a quest to help Cuckoo-Loca perform at her concert. In each story, you get to use Minnie's bow maker to create the perfect bow for the occasion.

If you want to make a bow without a story, you can jump right into the bow maker and design a bow for yourself or Minnie. If you make it for yourself, you get the choose (or take) a photo and put the bow on yourself.

Once you've read all the stories, you can show off all the bows you've designed in the Big Bow Show, a runway fashion show that features your bows!
