The Jim Henson Company Launches Chatter Zoo App


Chatter-Zoo-app

The Jim Henson Company has recently announced a new mobile app based on their hit preschool property, Chatter Zoo. The new Chatter Zoo app was made with the help of award-winning mobile dev Mindshapes, and will let young kids learn early language skills while interacting with four friendly and playful baby animals.

The Chatter Zoo property itself will premiere in digital form via iTunes for the iPhone and iPad starting on August 8, 2013, and will launch on the Amazon Kindle Fire in September. The Jim Henson Company plans to develop both the TV property and the ancillary products concurrently.

“When we create a new world for a preschool audience, we want that world to be authentic and meaningful across many different media formats. In the last several years, the digital space has developed to be a highly powerful tool for preschool learning and, working with language specialists and psychologists, we’ve created this new app that provides opportunities for our audience to master specific language goals while caring for their new Chatter Zoo friends,” said Halle Stanford, Executive Vice President of Children’s Entertainment, The Jim Henson company. “The big idea of Chatter Zoo is that young kids at home, who are just a little bit older than our adorable baby animals, get to ‘take care of’ and ‘teach’ these characters the very skills that they themselves are in the final stages of mastering using interactive play that is based in a strong curriculum of vocabulary acquisition and early language building.”
