Kids are icky. So are the Lairies

Turn screen time into story time

Lairytales is a free story app for 3-8 year-olds. The app is available for iPhones, iPads and Android phones and tablets. Lairytales star the delightfully disgusting Lairies, whose horrible habits will find a place in your children’s hearts.

We believe that laughter and learning go hand-in-hand. Lairytales embrace the ickier side of literacy and make reading fun again, on and off screen.

Watch your children rediscover the joy of reading and give yourself a sneaky high-five. You just turned screen time into story time and they didn’t even notice.

10 minutes a day time

Just 10 minutes’ reading a day, outside of school time, can help children to learn and make better progress in all areas of the national curriculum.

The Lairytales app comes with free reading reports every week, so you’ll see what your children have learning while they’ve been playing. You might refresh your memory about those classroom lessons too!

Lairytales reading reports also include super easy word games from Professor Parp to help you top up learning at home! We guarantee that every game is quick, easy and you won’t need to prepare anything to play.

Anything we can do your kids can do better!

Children are more engaged with reading when they get a hand in the storytelling.

The Lairytales app offers children the opportunity to be involved in the stories by creating crazy new characters that hide on every page, waiting to be discovered.

Kids can choose how their characters look, what they sound like and what kind of personality they have. They can also think up a suitably naughty name for their creation!
