Robin Mitchell-Cranfield and Judith Steedman’s Windy & Friends storybook characters have a special place in the hearts of many parents and kids (myself included). Recently featured on the COVER of Small Wonder magazine this magical, made-in-Vancouver world has always been loveable, and has now entered a new era.
They sent us a note (with the fantastic photo of some of their characters above!) to let us know that they’ve launched a series of interactive stories made with handcrafted stop-motion – disguised as iPhone/iPad and Android apps. This crafty new digital world of Windy’s is one you (and your kids) have got to experience. Browse the six appisodes they’ve released so far at windyandfriends.com and stay tuned for four more in the months ahead: one on Easter, one about rainbows, one about a hootenanny and one that’s less of a story and more about playing learning games with the characters.
