Toilet Monster Unleashed!
It’s been a hectic but very happy beginning to the week here at Tusitala, since our first children’s book app–The Toilet Monster– has just launched on the Apple app store. We are officially in business! You can download the app for free right now, so do take a look by clicking on the link to the Apple app store at the bottom of this post.
But first for a little backstory: The Toilet Monster is pretty special because that’s where the idea behind Tusitala really first took root. The book was written by Simone, our colleague from the Asia magazine, and produced by our very own Director-of-everything Wendy. (That’s right, the Wendy you saw in the previous blog post!)
Having read a couple of pioneering story book apps on the iPhone with her three year old daughter, Wendy was impressed with how entertaining and intuitive they were. She also daydreamed a little about how great it would be to come up with her own story apps, specially written for her daughters. Factor into this equation the fact that she was working at the time at our sister company Omnitoons–app developers par excellence. Suddenly, this daydream suddenly didn’t seem so far-fetched after all! And the rest, as they say, is history.
This book is the first in our “Lola Grows Up” series, which follows the everyday adventures of our little heroine Lola. We’re also translating this into Chinese soon, so listen out for another announcement here in the near future.
