Panarea Digital, a premier interactive content developer and production house, and LazyTown, a popular children’s entertainment brand, launched its first joint app, “LazyTown Jukebox”, for iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad, which is now available on the App Store. LazyTown, a hit television show, promotes a healthy lifestyle for kids, and this app brings this message to life through its music videos based on original songs from the show.
With “LazyTown Jukebox” children enjoy the music videos, learn the lyrics, and sing along with the most popular songs from the show. The colorful and whimsical music videos feature the characters they love, and the bouncy-ball makes it fun and easy for kids to follow along to learn the words to all the songs. Kids can also record themselves singing the songs and share their recordings with others.
“At Panarea Digital, we are excited about launching our first app with LazyTown. Our interactive play brings the songs and characters from LazyTown to children in a whole new way,” said Guido Kovalskys, CEO of Panarea Digital. “This is just the first of several apps from our partnership with LazyTown. The combination of the LazyTown characters, music, and the healthy living theme, and our creative game development teams will bring even more fun and engaging games and activities to kids. More great apps will be released soon.”
Magnus Scheving, CEO and star of the show says, “This is a fantastic way for children to learn and play whilst on-the-go or travelling. LazyTown is all about motivating children to be active and healthy in a fun way and LazyTown Jukebox does just that, encouraging them to sing and dance along to LazyTown songs.”
The “LazyTown Jukebox” app is available for free from the App Store on iPhone, iPod touch and iPad, or at http://itunes.com/apps/LazyTownJukeBox/
