Little Airplane Productions has partnered with social gaming platform Huzutech to create a new HTML5 app for its popular Small Potatoes Facebook page (www.facebook.com/thesmallpotatoes), which boasts 1+ million users.
The Small Potatoes Potato Maker app is set to debut on July 1, 2012. It will allow fans of the short-form preschool animated series to create and customize (clothing, accessories and facial expressions) their own Small Potato, then share their creation on Facebook as a photo, avatar, profile picture or cell phone picture. Facebook credits will also allow users to open up the exclusive limited edition assets such as the irreverent “Rockstar” pack and fantasy-based “Princess” pack.
Created by Josh Selig (Wonder Pets, 3rd & Bird), the series follows the adventures of a band of four singing potatoes called Ruby, Chip, Olaf and Nate. Every episode represents a different phase of the band’s career, from their roots in Rock & Roll to their journey into Jazz, Reggae, Disco and Hip Hop. The show first debuted on the CBeebies in the U.K. in April of 2011. It premiered on Disney Junior last September. For more info, visit Disney.go.com/Disneyjunior/small-potatoes.
