Long Days of Childhood app by Ragù

Are you familiar with those cute new commercials by Ragù about the Long Days of Childhood? Personally they just crack me up! My husband and I always joke around when watching our kids from time to time, how incredibly difficult it must be to be a 2 and a 5 year old these days.  Lol!  These commercials capture just that. So I love when I catch a new one on television- can totally relate. Well they have now taken it a step further and have developed a new app called the 'Give 'Em Ragu' app. You get to upload photographs and videos of your own children and then the app will put them to music to describe their very own "Long Day of Childhood". How cool is that? What kid doesn't like to see their face on video, let along a music video?! After creating your video you can then share it with all of your friends and family; it can even upload right onto Facebook!

When I heard about this app I was thrilled to play around with it to create one for my boys. A nice feature I found was that you can use pictures from Facebook, Instagram or your computer, giving you tons of options. It was really fun to play around with, adding silly pictures and then watching the looks on the faces and hearing the giggles from my two boys. The app itself couldn't be any easier, you select up to seven pictures, rearrange them, write a little snippet describing your photo story and that's it! Hit send and Ragù pits together your own little commercial featuring your kids with a song and a story to match.  They really are quite funny.

Go on, try it yourself!  They have it available on iTunes, Android and Facebook, making it possible for everyone to have fun.

This is my most favorite of the Long Days of Childhood Commercials: The Sleepover

Pros: this was a fun app and a great way to share memories of you family in a fun new way. Plus it is super easy to do!

Cons: I had issues with the app for my itouch and it kept shutting down before I could save it.  I am hoping to share my own movie with you all later if i can get the kink ironed out.  Other goofy thing is that it was hard to get the image focused and centered on my sons face. It did some odd cut outs and edits, but hey, it is a free app!  I can live with it.  I still think it is a worth playing around with.  I had a lot of fun with it!

*Disclaimer – I was compensated for my review of this app, but all thoughts and opinions are my own.
