ToonYou: Where Your Kid’s Dreams Come to Life

ToonYou is a unique app that expands on the very vivid imaginations of Preschool age children. Through its humorous stories, cute graphics, and animated details, ToonYou brings your family right into the action. Parents can simply visit or install the app for Apple or Android on their phones. After creating an account, you can upload pictures of the mom, dad, and children in your family to star in your very own little story. 

Uploading pictures is really easy, you can select one from your computer or your phone, or use your webcam or phone’s camera to take your own right then. Then you simply drag the image onto the character’s head and zoom in and out to make it appear just how it should look within the parameters of the face. Once you have it how you want it, you drag two eyes and a mouth to show the program just where the eyes and mouths of each person are located in order to make sure that they are animated properly. The whole process doesn’t take long at all, which is perfect for impatient preschoolers ready to see something funny. 

This series is called My Dream Jobs, so you will select from a list of videos that show jobs such as police officer or juggler. Each video is rich with animations and a cute story, so your child is sure to be entertained.  Once you have finished adding your family members, the video is compiled for you and plays out from the point of view of your child telling the story. 

We chose to try out the police officer story because our son really enjoys action packed stories and thinks that police officers, firefighters, and the like are pretty cool. We were pleasantly surprised that it was pretty entertaining for us too, a quality hard to find in an app geared towards children. Our son loved it and we both laughed along with him at the complex facial expressions the program generated. 

Here is a screenshot of my husband as the police officer in the story. In this quick clip, he is distraught because he gets his handcuffs to get ready to go on patrol only to end up locked in them himself! The eyebrows, sad eyes, and large frowning mouth is something that small children can easily relate to and the program does a good job of keeping each part of the story animated perfectly so small kids can determine what is going on emotionally with the characters. 


ToonYou is an impressive little app that will bring your family many laughs. Upload your own pictures and see just how your Preschooler reacts to seeing their family starring in their own video!
