Menlo Park, CA (PRWEB) September 05, 2012
Today, JeffCorwinConnect (JCC) Inc. and YogiPlay announced a distribution partnership for a new eco-themed learning app for kids called Animal Bingo: JeffCorwinConnect. The app is aimed to be one many “eco-apps” both companies plan to distribute, while creating a new genre of gaming experiences for kids, connecting them to nature and wildlife.
JeffCorwinConnect is a trans-media company co-founded by Jeff Corwin, well-known Emmy Award-winning TV host and currently host and executive producer of ABC’s Ocean Mysteries with Jeff Corwin; YogiPlay is a new service recommendation service that helps parents to find high-quality, educator approved learning apps for their kids.
Animal Bingo: JeffCorwinConnect is a cleverly designed image, sound and word association app, in which young children can enjoy matching illustrations of animals in different environments like oceans, jungles, farms and our homes to their corresponding names and sounds. Each time a child successfully makes a match, the illustrated animal images dynamically turn over and reveal a picture of the real animal in its natural habitat. The game progressively adapts to test the knowledge of kids.
Jeff Corwin is a well-known biologist, philanthropist and global eco-citizen who, in addition to currently hosting Ocean Mysteries with Jeff Corwin, is a regular science and environmental correspondent for MSNBC and NBC News and has had his wildlife and conservation work featured on The Today Show, The Rachel Maddow Show, The Tonight Show with Jay Leno and many others. “I am delighted to launch this game which brings the sounds and images of animals into the digital world kids are living in today connecting them to the ultimate reality show out there which is nature” said Corwin.
Anurag Agarwal, co-founder and CEO of JeffCorwinConnect Inc. added, “Partnering on a venture like this gives us the tremendous opportunity to further our mission of leveraging modern day technologies and platforms to bring edutaining experiences to kids who are growing up as digital natives. Given the time kids spend on gaming, we are excited to partner with Yogiplay and distribute a suite of eco-apps that allow kids to learn about the planet, its species and ecosystems while having a fun gaming experience.”
For background, YogiPlay makes it easy for parents to find the right, high-quality learning apps for their children. Every app recommended by YogiPlay has been reviewed and approved by the company’s in-house team of early childhood education experts. In addition to app recommendations, YogiPlay also offers parents insights on to their child’s in-app learning progress. The combination of recommendations and progress insight positions YogiPlay as the trusted learning apps resource for parents and educators alike.
This unique collaboration enables both companies to define a new category of “eco apps,” while introducing young children to basic concepts related to the environment, animals and their habitats using mobile devices.
We’re thrilled to have this opportunity to collaborate with the team at JCC,” said Michal Sellin, founder and Chief Technologist at YogiPlay. “JCC’s mission of educating children on the environment really resonated with us, so having the opportunity to distribute an app that combines the two things children love — animals and games — just made sense. We’re excited to see what kids, parents and educators think of our eco-themed ‘Animal Bingo: Jeff Corwin Connect’ app.”
