Add Puppets, props, scenery, and backgrounds and start creating. Hit the record button and the puppets automatically lip-synch to your voice.

Friends can work together with multiple puppets and create hilarious conversations. While recording, simply tap a puppet and that puppet will lip-synch, tap a different puppet and switch auto lip-synching to it.

Padlet - http://padlet.com/features
This website lists some more Storytelling Apps for you to try.
Creating cartoons with Toontastic is as easy as putting on a puppet show - simply press the record button and tell your stories through play! Once you’re done, share your cartoons with friends & family around the world.
Padlet can be used in many different brainstorming activities or discussions where participation can be active rather than passive for all students. Some suggestions for using padlet in the classroom are:
K-W-L charts for pre and post assessment
use as a formative assessment tool to check for student understanding
place a sentence starter on a wall and allow students to complete with their own ideas
allow students to ask questions about topics or assignments
use a wall for group research projects to share ideas and web addresses
showcase student work
use to collect feedback or as a ticket out the door

Padlet users can control the privacy settings and also can choose to moderate comments and approve before they appear.

Puppet Pals ($2.99) & Puppet Pals 2 ($4.99)
This app is as fun as your own creativity. Act out a story of Pirates on the high seas, fight as scary monsters, or play the part of a Wild West bandit on the loose. You can even combine any characters however you want!
