StoryToys, a leading publisher of interactive books and games for children, today announced the release of its latest title, The Jungle Book, adapted from Rudyard Kipling’s classic tale of adventure. Mowgli’s story has been infused with StoryToys’ trademark 3D interactive pop-up technology and is now available in the Apple App Store™, Google Play™ and Amazon™ for smartphone and tablet users.
StoryToys expands library to give classic fables a modern update
"StoryToys has had tremendous success with our Grimm's Fairy Tales series, but of course we’re always striving to bring as wide a range of content to our audience as possible,” said Barry O'Neill, chief executive officer of StoryToys. “Now for the first time, we’re spreading our StoryToys magic beyond princesses, princes, and witches, and giving modern updates to beloved fables by combining highly engaging interactive scenes and all the educational benefits of a classic book."
The sights and sounds of the jungle come alive in this 3D interactive pop-up adaptation of Rudyard Kipling’s much-loved story, enhanced by rich animation and engaging sound effects. The interactive scenes are carefully integrated into the fabric of the story, actively involving the reader in a tropical adventure with the ‘man-cub’ Mowgli as he learns to live in the wilderness with the help of his faithful friends Baloo, Bagheera, and much more. Readers can search the jungle with animal friends to find baby Mowgli, help Mowgli knock fruit off trees into Baloo’s mouth, and even give elephants a cooling mud bath before washing them down with fresh water, amongst many other activities.
