The Human Body by Tinybop

"Explore a working model of the body. Every part is animated and interactive: the heart beats, guts gurgle, lungs breathe, the skin feels, and eyes see. Designed for kids ages 4+ to discover what we’re made of and how we work. The Human Body is the first in a series of apps from Tinybop. Each app contains a recording tool so you and your child can ask questions, listen, and respond to each other. Play, learn, and explore together."
John Pearce's insight:
This app looks really interesting especially when it is free for this week from the 17th of Sept 2013. It is quite large at 325Mb and does have at least one in app purchase. I look forward to seeing how the recording tool manifests itself.
