Tiny Twiga Studios, a children's mobile app creator led by an artist and developer from award winning films and children's animated movies, have launched their first app. Hello Meerkat! HD 1.01 is an interactive storybook about a day at the zoo for the 1-4 age group. Along with reading the story and meeting the animals, children engage in a game of hide and seek with the baby meerkats. Educational features for building vocabulary and singing a favourite lullaby are also included.
"Hello Meerkat! was inspired by our young daughter's love of animals and the zoo. Every trip to the zoo requires a mandatory visit to the meerkat enclosure to say 'hello' to her meerkat friends. She adores them and laughes as their heads randomly pop up around the enclosure from behind a log or within a burrow. So we came up with the idea for the storybook app featuring her favourite animals with age appropriate themes to encourage toddlers and pre-schoolers to learn more about animals," says Belinda Young, Co-Founder and Art Director.
