Description from the packaging.

Create interactive stories, poems and journals!

In Neighborhood,a real-life learning destination in the Imagination Express series, familiar settings and characters encourage kids to write about actual or imagined adventures. Kids will enjoy developing creativity, writing and communication skills as they explore the Neighborhood and all the people who live there. Family and friends are joined by musicians, fire fighters, athletes and pets. As kids select scenes, choose and animate stickers, write, narrate, add music and record dialogue, their stories, journals, letters and poems come alive. You can count on lots of laughter, fun and learning, whether your child is working alone or with friends.

  • Animate a basketball player and many other stickers with the click of a button!
  • Choose photo-realistic people, pets, pizza and more from the Sticker Picker.
  • Will your grandparents watch the action from inside or outside their building? It's up to you!
  • Dogs and other stickers automatically grow or shrink as you move them close to you or far away.

Create a neighborhood band! Record your own music, sound effects, dialogue and narration to bring your story to life!

In View Mode, you'll enjoy seeing and hearing each page of your story unfold on-screen.
