What is it
OOKs is a free to download app where the user can create their very own unique OOK and build an OOKiverse. The child is the author and can build their own story and own creations like drawing a hat for the OOK or choosing the dinner menu. They work through the app to create their own story which can be printed and delivered to the door within 48 hours (so great for Christmas too) and their OOK is the hero and even their drawings are in there too with the child’s name as the author.
The choices made and actions taken by your child are transformed into beautifully illustrated, ultra-personalised books they will cherish for years to come.
OOKS is an interactive storytelling app that allows children create their own adventure. The choices made and actions taken by your child are transformed into beautifully illustrated, ultra personalised books they will cherish for years to come. Your child will be a book creator and author.

What our experts think
Our testers really liked creating their own characters and it was good that they were able to make their own choices, encouraging children to think about their own likes, dislikes, and so on. Children particularly liked the features where you could choose the food and what your character would be best at – this part also elicited lots of giggles, with one girl delighted in giving her character belly button fluff and a talent of burping slowly in a treehouse! The drawing activities were particularly rewarding, as children saw their pictures come to life in their OOKiverse. We love the idea that children’s stories can be made into printed books, and this could encourage an interest in reading. Children are likely to need some help from an adult to get started, as not all of the controls are clear.
