Jetpack Distribution, Wizart Animation, Dibulitoon and Somuga have launched a newly created free (and advertising free) app based on top pre-school show Yoko, that promotes outdoor games. The app “Yoko” is available from Google Play now and Apple’s App Store soon.
Yoko is suitable for Android and iOS and offers fun outdoor games with an interface designed especially for children aged 4-7 years and their families. Children can choose a game and tell the app how many are playing, what elements they want to use (such as a ball, handkerchief or skipping rope) and what they are in the mood for (e.g. running, laughing, being still). The app then offers a one minute animated short explaining the game step by step. It offers more than 50 games tailored for varying numbers of children, and with a simple interface empowering them to choose how and with what they want to play. Yoko is an app that can be used offline without having to be connected to the network. The app will be continually updated with more games in newer versions.
Yoko is produced by Wizart Animation, Somuga and Dibulitoon Studio and is commissioned by RTVE and ETB in Spain. The show currently airs in 60 countries across the world and has amassed 25m views on YouTube. Season two is currently in production and due for delivery Autumn 2018. The show follows the adventures of three children who simply love to play outside. The enthusiasm and energy they put into their games awakens the magical creature called Yoko. Yoko takes ordinary children’s games and turns them into extraordinary adventures, making every day in the park a new and exciting challenge.
