“We created StoryBots not only to entertain and educate our own kids, but also to inject a big dose of fun into our parenting routines,” said the brothers. “What we’re building is as much for parents as it is for kids.”

StoryBots, created by JibJab.com founders Evan and Gregg Spiridellis, debuted three new apps today to lend parents a hand with safe, high quality programming for their kids and tools that make parenting more fun.

“We created StoryBots not only to entertain and educate our own kids, but also to inject a big dose of fun into our parenting routines,” said the brothers. “What we’re building is as much for parents as it is for kids.”

The StoryBots are brightly-colored, infinitely curious little creatures who live in the world beneath our screens. They are standing by, anytime, anywhere, in our smart phones, tablets and computers, with apps that entertain kids (the “Happy Kids” product line) and help busy parents (the “Happy Parents” line).

Today’s three new app releases cross both product lines:

KIDQUOTER™ is an app for iPhone® that allows parents to quickly capture the funny things their kids say and turn it into personalized, sharable art. When a child says something quotable, simply jot it into Kid Quoter and easily turn it into stylish, fun art -- personalized with the child’s face, and custom costumes and backgrounds. The creations are then sharable via email, Facebook, and Twitter. KidQuoter is 100% free to download, and joins Beep & Boop™, the StoryBots good behavior game, as the second app in the “Happy Parents” product line.

TAP & SING is an app for iPad® that teaches kids musical concepts such as notes, melodies, tempo and, most importantly, the joy that comes from creating music. By tapping the StoryBots in the order they raise their hands, kids can play along to classic songs like “This Old Man,” “Row Your Boat” and “Mary Had a Little Lamb.” It’s like Guitar Hero for kindergarteners. Like all “Happy Kids” apps, Tap & Sing is free to download, comes with sample content (three free songs) and requires a StoryBots membership to unlock all 11 songs.

The ABC VIDEOS app features the 26 one-minute music videos starring the StoryBots that became a viral YouTube hit, generating over 5 million views, in part because they are as fun for parents and teachers as they are educational for kids. The videos help kids identify the shapes and sounds of alphabet letters and teach vocabulary. The ABC Videos app is free to try on the iPhone, iPod touch, iPad and iPad mini, and comes with three free videos (“Hooray for A,” “B is for Boogie” and “Crazy for C”). StoryBots members can unlock all 26 videos.

StoryBots is 100% safe for kids and gives parents full control over their kid’s experience.

“As parents, we wanted peace of mind knowing that our kids are playing and learning in a safe commerce-free environment,” said the brothers. “That’s why there are no advertisements or unprotected links in StoryBots apps.”
