When I was a child, even in my wildest dreams, I’d never have imagined that, one day, I’d be able to play lots of games on a portable screen, instead of jumping rope, racing cars, or shooting a bow and arrows. Now, thanks to Pocoyo Gamebox, even the littlest members of the family can play all these games on an iPad.
Zinkia has developed an app which contains a choice of five mini-games, specially designed for toddlers to take their first steps in gaming using an iPad. But Pocoyo Gamebox isn’t Zinkia’s first foray into the app world. Already available are: Pocoyo TV, which lets you watch all 52 episodes of the first season (via Apple Store, Android, and Ovi) and “Coloring with Pocoyo and his friends” (exclusively for the Apple Store), which lets budding artists experiment with color and unleash all their creativity. Both apps have been very well received and have already had more than 250,000 downloads.
We’re also the people behind an app that, probably, turned out to be one of most popular worldwide: Pocoyize. that was the first app Zinkia developed, back in December 2009, letting users create an image of themselves in Pocoyo’s unique style, via both the Apple Store and www.pocoyize.com. Since its launch, Pocoyize has become a real global phenomenon, with more than 12 million (!) people using the app on online social networks and more than 750,000 via the iPhone alone.
