Educational Game

Children and young people’s reading engagement has steadily fallen over the past four years, which has only been exacerbated by the pandemic. Research from Juniper Education has shown there's been a 25% drop in year one pupils achieving the expected level of reading from the start of the pandemic to the autumn. With children’s learning and development having been negatively impacted by the closure of schools, Disney Story Realms proves to be an invaluable resource for home-schooling parents as the familiar characters offer a springboard into imaginative storytelling and favourite Disney tales help encourage an interest in reading. Kuato Studios Disney Story Realms is an adventure and storybook app designed to make learning fun for children aged 4-8 and their families. The app’s unique story-driven experiences aim to inspire early learning development through mini-games, based on character and world choice. A fully illustrated and interactive storybook adventure awaits gamers when they join beloved characters on their journey. The player’s role is to help these characters solve a variety of activities from word puzzles to gesture challenges. The game helps players to develop their reading skills with a personalised storybook and improve movement and thinking abilities with in-app activities, all whilst interacting with their well-known and beloved Disney characters. Game features include: 10 magical 3D realms to explore, featuring stories from Frozen, Toy Story, Aladdin, Moana, The Lion King, and many more favourites, with New Disney and Pixar realms added regularly. Full movie-retelling story books: experience classic Disney movies, and all of their twists and turns, whilst learning how to read. Short stories: an easier place to start for younger players, Disney Story Realms features over 50 exclusive short stories featuring Disney and Pixar family favourites – and the library is forever-growing. Activities and puzzles: stimulate learning with word searches, dot-to-dot and hidden object activities, develop creativity with painting, dress up games, and sticker albums, and gain problem-solving skills with solving jigsaw puzzles and finding matching pairs.
