European production and distribution company Millimages is launching its iPad app Louie, Teach Me to Draw and Write in the US. Available for download from the App store for $ 3.99, the app has already launched in Europe.
Pre-schoolers can join Louie, Yoko and their friends on the Apple iPad. Young Louie fans can learn how to draw and write the letters of the alphabet through four different activities: they can draw with Louie and his friends; color their favorite characters by dipping fingers into individual paint pots; put letters of their names in the right order, and write the letters of their names.
“The iPad is a natural platforms for extending the Louie brand and this app, now available in the U.S. for the first time, offers kids the opportunity to learn whilst having fun,” says Marie-Caroline Villand, head of developments and productions at Millimages. “We are excited to be taking Louie to new audiences and consumers across the world via digital media.”
Millimages holds all international TV and L&M rights to Louie. Created by Yves Got and Isabeau Merle, the animated preschool show was first introduced in 2006. So far, three season (117 episodes X 7-minutes) of the series have been produced.
France 5, Nickelodeon, Super RTL, Disney Channel, ABC and CBeebies are among the channels that broadcast the show in over 100 territories.
