Can this work as a gift? How do you wrap it? Unveil it?
Disney, the largest publisher of childrenâ€™s books in the world, sells 700 million items a year in 85 countries, said Russell Hampton Jr., the president of Disney Publishing Worldwide. …
The Spider-Man app will be released for the iPad, iPhone and iTouch for $6.99. Geared toward children ages 4 to 10, it includes interactive features, distinguishing it from e-books, Mr. Hampton said.
I suppose this is not very different from a regular paper-based book, but still, feels a little strange to give this as a gift to a kid. Will probably try it out this Chanukkah season.
On a side-note, did not realize Disney was such a big publishing house.
