Apps from developers Fox and Sheep bring a little extra thought and artistry to the world of apps for kids. Their award-winning apps for preschoolers are designed to be irresistibly interactive, pulling in kids and adults alike with their quirky animations, funny sound effects and gorgeous artwork.
“Nighty Night!” is the perfect App for a daily go-to-sleep ritual with sweet music and elegant narration. All around the house the lights go out, and even the animals in the barn are tired. But who puts them to bed? Who turns out the lights in their stalls? That is the task for small children aged 1-4. Watching all the animals go to sleep is a lovely way to set the mood for bedtime.
The interactive bedtime “Nighty Night!” is brought to you from Oscar-Nominee Heidi Wittlinger (2002, best animated short) who put a lot of passion and effort in constructing little sets made of paper and combining them with 2D illustration and animation.
Languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Italian and Portuguese.

“The kids that we field tested this app with were enraptured with every aspect and element, and “WOW-O-WOW” was heard over and over and over again! This app is beyond anything we have experienced to date.” // teacherswithapps.com
“I could describe the value of the experience in terms of early music education. I could describe the meticulous design of the app, even down to the music when the credits are rolling. I could continue to wax eloquent. But words fail me. Really, you have to be there. So go there. Get the app.
Just one word of warning – hide the device from your children until you’ve had plenty of play time of your own. If you don’t, it may be many years before you see this app again.” // Gill Robins ipadappreviewsby.gillrobins.com
