We knew we had to feature the classic zoo animals (lions, tigers and bears – oh my!), but we also observed some fascinating creatures at the Toronto Zoo that we just had to sneak in – the ring-tailed lemur was one of our favourites. Our artists were serious about representing the sizes, shapes, colours, and patterns of the more than two dozen new animal characters so that kids could recognize and name them easily. We also have a few parent and child animal groupings so that kids can relate them to their own family experiences.
Zoo is one of our Playset apps (joining Big City and Farm) and, much like a physical playset, these apps give kids the pieces to act out their life experiences and emotions. They can voice characters, make messes, tidy up, work through feelings, visit new places and act out daily routines. We made sure to include objects and scenes kids will recognize – this Zoo has restaurants, boats, cars, bathrooms and much more. There is great power in the open play of a familiar setting, characters, and props — anything or nothing can happen at a childʼs whim.
