BBC Worldwide and Scary Beasties are proud to announce the very first official pre-school app featuring CBeebies’ favourites, Sarah & Duck. The rich and beautiful animations that won the TV show its recent BAFTA, allow children to immerse themselves in the amazing world of Sarah & Duck by playing engaging games and activities.
Available to download from the App Store, Google Play and Amazon, pre-schoolers and fans of the series are invited to join Sarah & Duck for a fun-packed day at the park. Players can interact with their favourite characters across 6 charmingly animated games, allowing for children aged from 2-6 to develop imagination and problem-solving skills through different game-playing styles. For peace of mind, there is also a gated grown-ups area including a Help section that ensures a child-friendly gaming experience.
Children can play hide and seek with Duck, create and fly their own unique kite, feed the hungry ducks and help Umbrella avoid the puddles. At the end of every game, players are rewarded with animated objects and characters that can be collected and used in a dynamic scene creator where they get to build their very own park.
Peter Hickman, BBC Worldwide Digital Entertainment Children’s Producer said “It took us nearly a year and an extensive global search to find the right development partner capable of creating a world-class app for Sarah & Duck. We finally found Scary Beasties, a London based company who specialises in Children’s software, and we knew they would be the perfect partner for BBC Worldwide and Karrot Entertainment.”
