WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING ABOUT WONDERSCOPE
New York Magazine:
“For parents with younger kids, I’ve got at least one thing that could assuage some of that guilt about screen time: Wonderscope.”
“What if you could give your child an iPad for an hour and not feel guilty about it?... an app that makes kids smile and feel confident as they read absolutely feels like a win.”
“Because kids look through the iPad to see the story on the other side, Wonderscope won’t close them off to the outside world.”
“To get a sense of Wonderscope, imagine if Snapchat filters or Pokemon Go went to work at Pixar after graduating from Juilliard.”
“The future of storytelling is happening all around us — we just have to look through the right lens to see it.”
Common Sense Media:
"It feels almost magical to watch as suddenly animated characters and scenery pop up all around you as part of ... engaging stories."
WIRED, regarding Wonderscope story Clio's Cosmic Quest:
"It might be the best 8-minute astronomy lesson out there."
In December 2019, Wondersope was awarded a BAFTA Children’s Award for its inaugural story, “A Brief History of Amazing Stunts by Astounding People,” created in partnership with PRELOADED.
