BBC Worldwide and mobile games developer, Scary Beasties are proud to launch their second title together, the official CBeebies game of hit TV show Charlie and Lola. Available to download from the App Store, Google Play and Amazon, Charlie and Lola: My Little Town allows children to immerse themselves in a series of creative activities to build their very own Little Town.
This Charlie and Lola app consists of six creative activities with a focus on free form and imaginative gameplay. Children aged from 18 months to 6 years are encouraged to construct buildings, dress up their favourite characters, create animals and compose music – then watch it all come to life on a special interactive Playmat of their own design. Throughout the game kids can collect special rewards and use them in their final designs, so the more they play the more bonus items and characters they’ll collect. For peace of mind, there is also a gated grown-ups area that ensures a child-friendly gaming experience.
Peter Hickman, BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment Children’s Producer said “Following on from the success of BBC Worldwide’s – Sarah & Duck: A Day at the Park app, the team worked very closely with Scary Beasties and Tiger Aspect to create the ultimate Charlie and Lola experience. This activity app featuring six amazing games, explores and encourages creativity with drawing, building and music. I’m proud to say that Charlie and Lola: My Little Town is another significant milestone in BBC Worldwide’s strategy to bring trusted, high quality, children’s apps to iOS, Android and Amazon devices.”
Charlie and Lola is best known as a pre-school animated TV series based on the books by Lauren Child. This fun filled and imaginative animated series focuses on the relationship between brother and sister, Charlie and Lola – telling the story of how they handle the little issues that they, as young children, encounter every day.
