StoryBots credits its successful following to its investment in creative programming. “We believe that quality is going to be the winning ingredient in the race to create the new equivalent of Sesame Street for a connected generation,” said co-founder Evan Spiridellis, “which is why we invest so heavily in our creative programming.”
In the past twelve months, the Spiridellis brothers and their team of 50 full-time artists, technologists and business people, along with their network of over 100 artists around the world, have launched 9 apps featuring 175+ videos, books, songs, activity sheets and more. In anticipation of the holidays, the team is bringing JibJab’s experience producing original, seasonally themed programming to its upcoming line of StoryBots holiday experiences.
“We have an amazing holiday line up of personalized Starring You® Videos and Books coming for Halloween, Thanksgiving and Christmas,” said Gregg Spiridellis. “We can’t wait to share what we’re creating with the StoryBots audience – most notably our own kids!”
