Night & Day Studios Releases Peekaboo Forest


downloadThe fine folks behind some of my favorite apps for Bug such as Peekaboo Barn and My Very First App have just had their latest approved and released to the App Store: Peekaboo Forest.

Explore beautiful forest scenes looking for signs of life. If you see something moving, tap on it to find out who it is!
This fun, interactive, and educational game includes Charley Harper’s distinctive drawing style and was inspired by his love of nature and symmetry. With this universal version, the famous Peekaboo series comes to the iPad too. Play it in English or Spanish!
Touch the vividly illustrated forest scenes to see charming animations, learn the names of animals, and hear the real sounds these creatures make in the wild. Younger children will love playing peekaboo with animals, as they learn about cause and effect and familiarize themselves with the names and sounds of animals. Older children can try to guess the animals by clues, work on spelling, and can start to learn about the seasons and the interconnected web of life that is a living forest. Adults will love the graphic, mid-century-modern illustrations by Charley Harper.
This is not a videogame or a TV show; it’s an interactive storybook with exceptionally fine art. When you could really use a safe distraction—in airports, restaurants, and waiting rooms—or you’d like to try something new with your budding little genius, Peekaboo Forest is a great alternative to other media options. It’s educational, handheld, ad-free, and inexpensive.
Peekaboo Forest was designed with preschool age children in mind by the award-winning team of educational media developers at Night & Day Studios, creators of My Very First App. It is the third entry in the beloved toddler app series that began with Peekaboo Barn and Peekaboo Wild. The graphics, sound effects, and narration are all presented at the highest quality. The illustrations were rendered for all iOS 4 devices including the iPad and the iPhone 4’s Retina display.
