HIT Entertainment is set to bring a raft of its preschool properties, including Thomas & Friends, Angelina Ballerina and Mike the Knight, to the Caribu video-calling and reading app.
iPad app Caribu integrates picture books into a video chat environment, letting families read to each other from different locations. Similar to the Kindoma Storytime reading app, Caribu is meant to connect long-distance family members.
Starting today, users will be able to download and read Thomas & Friends picture books from within the app, with more titles from all four brands being added over the coming weeks. Launched on the Apple App Store in January, Caribu’s catalog includes more than 100 books.
