USA Today lauded the FarFaria iPad app as the “Netflix for children’s books,” highlighting the top-notch quality of its 200-strong selection, which appeals to children aged 2–9. Written and illustrated specifically for the iPad app, the vivid and intricate pictures fill the iPad's entire screen. The tales are subdivided by theme on the colorful Story Land map, which kids use to navigate books weaving yarns about animals, fairy tales, and adventures, each clearly labeled with its reading level. New stories appear every week, so parents need not worry about reading Princess and the Pea for the 986,459th time.

With more than 1,000 stories that come to life on virtually any mobile device, FarFaria lures children's noses out of video games and into books. The library is curated for kids aged 1–9 and every book displays its reading level, so those first learning to read can find books with simple words and pictures while older children consume classic tales such as Rapunzel and The Wizard of Oz. The app lends itself to both family and alone time, as the included Read-to-Me narration—which highlights text as it goes—can be turned off and on according to who's reading and how successfully they're doing Papa Bear's voice.
