Toronto, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/06/2015 -- A world leading creative children's content development company has announced the release of a brand new interactive application. Smartoonz has launched "Monkey See Monkey Dance," a new app based on the company's successful TV series "Monkey See Monkey Do."
"Monkey See Monkey Do" is a colorful, upbeat animated kid's series that encourages children to engage with the show's characters through dance. The show, which is distributed by 9 Story Media Group, is broadcast by major TV channels in 50+ territories. The second season features a brand new 26 x11min format and is now available.
The companion app, "Monkey See Monkey Dance," is developed by Smartoonz's new Toronto studio and powered by Homage technology. The app gives users the opportunity to be a part of the show by letting them dance with Monkey and his friends on short clips from the series. Using new technology from Homage, the app offers users the ability to upload simple short video clips of themselves that can be integrated into funny, energetic music animated clips featuring the user and characters from the show. Parents can simply film their children dancing, and the app will do the rest.
"I'm thrilled to make Monkey accessible to all our faithful viewers through new platforms" said Smartoonz CEO, Yuval Levy. "We wanted to give our millions of fans the chance to share the experience of taking part in the show that they love so much. We are always on the lookout for the newest technology to connect with our unique content to create entertaining, interactive experiences for children. We are also developing a new product that will integrate the Monkey content with wearable technology to foster boosted physical activity for children."
"Monkey See Monkey Dance" is available for free via the Apple App Store. The simple app allows users to choose a song, create clips, save clips on the http://www.monkey.dance website, and share clips with friends and family.
