The Jellytoons™ are back in Jellytoons Birthday Countdown, their first interactive story for toddlers and preschoolers. Developed by Mindshapes, the 14-page rhyming interactive eBook encourages exploration and critical thinking as children engage with loveable characters and beautifully illustrated objects. The story also acts as a prequel to Mindshapes’ acclaimed debut app Jellytoons Toddler Skills: Bobo’s Birthday Challenge. All the fun is available today on the App Store for the iPad® and iPhone® (3GS and up).

“The Jellytoons apps are part of a long line of entertaining and educational interactive releases that we plan to debut over the next year, offering parents an appealing and engaging way to help their children learn using the latest iOS devices,” said Jinhee Ahn Kim, director of mobile product development for Mindshapes. “With this latest installment, we are expanding on the delightful characters, gorgeous production and genuine learning that made its predecessor so popular, while incorporating an innovative storybook framework for children to explore.”

Jellytoons Birthday Countdown delivers a highly interactive format, allowing children to engage with the pages so they can progress the story. The eBook’s rhymes contain instructions for children to complete fun tasks such as finding a hidden character or completing a shape-matching puzzle; such activities will help youngsters to develop their critical thinking and fine motor skills.

The interactive eBook also allows children to hear a full narration of the book or select individual words to listen to their pronunciation.
