New York, NY (PRWEB) December 19, 2013
Cupcake Digital, Inc. and DHX Media proudly welcome the arrival of their first super-fun collaboration featuring the colorful characters from the very awesome world of Gabba! The Yo Gabba Gabba! Party in My Tummy deluxe activity app, designed for preschoolers age 5 and under, is inspired by the wildly popular song frequently featured in the Nick Jr. series. The app stars DJ Lance as he introduces everyone’s favorite friends, Brobee, Foofa, Muno, Plex and Toodee. Kids help each character get ready for lunchtime by choosing fun foods such as chicken, yogurt, sandwich, sushi or pasta. Each scenario offers kids a way to prepare the food and then watch as the ingredients party in each character’s tummy. The app is available for $2.99 on the Apple App Store, Amazon Appstore for Android, Google Play and the Barnes & Noble NOOK Store.
“One of my very favorite things about Yo Gabba Gabba! is the music. It’s so infectious and is at the heart of what makes the show great fun for kids,” said Lead Creative Producer Rachael Perriello. “Capturing that magic and bringing it to life is incredibly fun. I wanted to give kids the opportunity to imagine they’re playing with the characters and in a way that’s fun and new for them.”
This first Cupcake Digital Yo Gabba Gabba! app is perfectly timed to coincide with DHX Media’s comprehensive Yo Gabba Gabba! marketing and licensing strategy for winter 2013-2014, which kicked off with the first-ever live holiday tour (http://www.yogabbagabbalive.com) and “A Very Awesome Yo Gabba Gabba! Christmas” DVD, featuring two original episodes, “A Very Awesome Christmas Special” and “Christmas.”
Erin Dippold, Vice President, Consumer Products, DHX Media comments: “Cupcake Digital is a leading children’s app developer that is known for creating highly engaging and entertaining products for preschoolers. Their successful track record in the kids entertainment space, coupled with their enthusiasm for Yo Gabba Gabba! as a brand made them an obvious choice for us. Gabba! fans will love that the spirit of the series and live stage show, and the music that is so much a part of the Yo Gabba Gabba! experience, are fully integrated in the new series of apps.”
