Aardman developed the Go Explore app platform for BBC preschool channel CBeebies to enable children to access a wealth of educational games and videos for high profile CBeebies brands such as Bing, Go Jetters, Hey Duggee and The Furchester Hotel all set within a wonderful interactive world.
The offering follows the UK’s Early Years Foundation Stage curriculum, teaching life skills and primary school preparation. The experience opens in a magical garden that encourages children to be curious by letting them tap on butterflies, puddles and underwater landscapes to find new activities. From there, kids can access games and an “outdoor” cinema.
There is also a “den area” where parents can see what children are playing and how their skills are developing through the curriculum. In addition to the core app platform Aardman developed two games for Go Explore. Bing ‘Camping’ - where children learn about managing feelings and behaviour with Bing and friends on a camping trip; and Go Jetters ‘Glitch Switch’ - where children earn about places around planet Earth and different habitats with the Go Jetters.
