Apple’s app store will feature Miami-based Rokk3r Labs’ educational app, which is based on a popular Latin American TV character, until Mexico’s Children’s Day.
With a fresh take on education, Rokk3r Labs looks to inspire children across the Americas to develop a proactive interest for learning languages and positive values, as well as discovering the colorful Latin American culture.
Juana y los Amigos de la Granja, based on a popular Latin American television show that received the Parent’s Choice Gold Award, brings the beloved TV character to the new digital age and a new generation. It aims to develop a proactive interest in children around the world to learn languages and positive values, as well as discover the colorful culture of Latin America.
“We are thrilled to have Juana y los Amigos de la Granja receive this standout recognition as a featured app in the Apple App Store so recently after it was launched,” says Rokk3r Labs co-founder and CEO Nabyl Charania. “It’s a real testament to the intelligent and creative insight of Juana La Iguana’s visionary, Tania Gilinski, and the cobuild process, and to the notion that a widespread appetite exists for the next generation of learning tools.”
Backed by a team of education experts the app offers kids the chance to learn about colors, animals, fruits, vegetables, and numbers as well as discover the concept of stars through fun activities and interactions with Juana’s farm friends.
“Within the Cobuild paradigm, Juana La Iguana and Rokk3r Labs have created Juana y los Amigos de la Granja, an enhanced learning platform that stands out in a sea of kids apps,” says German Montoya, Co-Founder and Chief Strategy & Creative Officer at Rokk3r Labs. “Beyond key cognitive and vocabulary skills, children learn about being good human beings – for example, to help people and care for the environment,” he adds.
The five key features and activities that children can enjoy in the Juana En La Granja game are complemented by Juana’s emphasis on positive values as children interact with the app.
Starting Thursday, April 23 at 4:00 PM CDT, the Apple App Store will promote Juana y los Amigos de la Granja as a featured kids app for seven days with the final day culminating on Children’s Day in Mexico, the most populous Spanish-speaking country in Latin America.
