Staying true to the brand’s fundamentals of delighting in discovery and celebrating the diversity of life on the planet, the “Pocket SpottyWot” application encourages preschoolers to find and learn more about animals including giraffes, crocodiles, elephants and more in the Sneak-a-Peek viewfinder.
“Preschoolers and parents will love this new way to connect with The WotWots. SpottyWot virtually comes to life in this unique application giving kids a chance to play with one of their favourite characters in a way that is fun, caring and gentle, again reinforcing the basic yet primary principles of the brand. We have also incorporated an element of exploration with the Sneak-a-Peek viewfinder as we know how much kids love animals and discovery - this application will assist in broadening their knowledge of the much-loved animal kingdom”, said co-creator, Martin Baynton.
In 2011, The WotWots was awarded a Parents’ Choice Award in the Spring 2011 Mobile Apps category for the brand’s free e-book ‘Lanky Landing Legs’.
