In the past year YipYip has been hard at work to create a framework for interactive picture book apps. Now the first result of this work is released today; Land of Mislaid for the iPad.
Targeted at children aged 4 and older, Land of Mislaid is an interactive children's story for iPad, created from the Dutch picturebook "Kwijt Weg Foetsie" by Jort van der Jagt. In collaboration with Jort and Studio Brain Muffin, YipYip created a beautiful interactive experience of the book with animation, music and interactive elements on each page. The book can be read to you by a narrator or you can read the story yourself.
The story takes the reader on an imaginative journey through the living room of Hannah's grandfather Where Hannah and Grandpa are looking for a lost peppermint. The story teaches children that by using your imagination you can have grand adventures in your own living room.
Synopsis of the story:
