Cupcake Digital, Inc. a digital media company dedicated to the development of deluxe interactive story experiences for children, announced the release of Wubbzy’s Dinosaur Adventure, the latest app inspired by the Emmy® award-winning Nick Jr. TV series “Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!®.” Children will love the imaginative storytelling, tappable animations, bright graphics, sing-along music videos, and learning games. Parents will love the Grown-Up’s Corner to help initiate conversation with thoughtful questions and the new Common Core Corner for further explanation of the educational activities infused within the story. The new app is available today on iTunes, Google Play, Amazon and Barnes & Noble for the introductory price of $1.99 and will retail for $2.99
“At Cupcake Digital, we enjoy creating new story experiences for young learners that tap into their passion for things like dinosaurs, while also taking advantage of the opportunity to entertain and teach in the digital story format,” said Brad Powers, Chairman at Cupcake Digital. “Giving kids and parents a uniquely Wubbzified dinosaur story experience with multiple reading modes, fun interactions with whimsical characters, and learning games to enable teachable moments at home is what we’re all about.”
Young readers will enjoy discovering the silly, colorful dinosaurs living on Dino Island as they go on another adventure with Wubbzy and his friends. Special features in this digital story experience include:
Common Core Corner:
Common Core State Standards (CCSS) are being introduced in schools throughout the country during the 2013 and 2014 school years. Parents will appreciate the new Common Core Corner for further explanation of the educational activities infused within the app to help prepare children for what they’ll be expected to know in school.
This is the area where parents will find thoughtful questions to prompt discussion, initiate collaborative conversation with their children and encourage further thinking about the story.
Three Reading Modes:
- Read & Play: In this mode, as the story is read to a child, they can tap and interact on each page.
- Read to Me: A narrator reads the book while a child taps and interacts with the story.
- Just a Book: This mode works like a good, old-fashioned picture book. It turns off interaction and sound. Perfect for bedtime and quiet time.
Two mini-games, Dino Matching and Cupcake Craze, are built into the story to engage a child’s imagination, and three bonus Learning Games -- Dino Alphabet, Dino Numbers and Dino Words -- reinforce writing, counting, and letter or word recognition.
Sing-a-long Music Videos:
Everyone will want to get up and dance with popular music videos from the Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! TV series.
Kids can paint their favorite characters and scenes straight from the story!
Fans of top-rated apps, including Wubbzy’s Pirate Treasure, Wubbzy’s Space Adventure, Wubbzy’s Train Adventure and Wubbzy’s The Night Before Christmas, which was recently released with lots of fanfare, will find this latest story experience app to be a fun-filled adventure for kids of all ages. Parents can visit http://www.iWubbzy.com to find free downloadable activities and music videos. Wubbzy and the gang are also interacting with fans on Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and on Google+ as iWubbzy, iDaizy, iWidget and iWalden.
