Five-month-old interactive media company yummico, from Blue’s Clues creator Traci Paige Johnson and film producer Caroline Baron, has launched a new preschool eBook series entitled The Adventures of Ash & Ollie.
The multiplatform Adventures of Ash & Ollie relies on visual storytelling and physical comedy to promote social, emotional and behavioral skills. The two titular brothers share daily encounters revolving around sleep, sibling rivalry, sharing, following rules and understanding feelings.
The new property is kicking off as an enhanced eBook entitled Screen Time, which is written by Baron and illustrated by Paige Johnson. The digital book delves into issues surrounding kids’ computer, tablet and smartphone usage. Screen Time, which will be released in September for iOS and Android devices, is produced in collaboration with mobile learning network Fingerprint and its enhanced features include animation and games.
yummico launched in February along with its debut app Yummilloo Rainbow Power, the first in the Yummiloo musical food adventure series.
