VANCOUVER, Sept. 14, 2015 /PRNewswire-iReach/ -- Big Bad Boo Studios announced today the launch of a series of educational iOS games for its new preschool mini-series Lili & Lola. Backed by the Canadian Media Fund and several Canadian broadcasters, the project features language-learning iPad and iPhone games in the Persian language. There are four apps in the series, with each focusing on a different educational component for the language. The project targets preschoolers who are bilingual or are learning the Persian language. In addition to the games, the company has also released a show website at www.liliandlolashow.com where additional web only games are available free of charge as well as downloadable educational materials such as coloring sheets, screen savers and Persian Alphabet tracing sheets.
Shabnam Rezaei, the creator of the show said, "I am really hopeful that parents and educators will find these games and materials useful to teach basic Persian language skills. Our test audiences love them and we are very excited to be active in mobile gaming with value-added, educational content."
The games include "Learn the Persian Alphabet" game, which teaches children how to trace each letter and the sound of each letter. The "Quiz Show" game teaches every day vocabulary. The "Hide and Seek" game teaches prepositions in a fun setting, where the player looks for the lost monkey "Maymoon" in various rooms in the house. Last but not least, the "Memory Match" game focuses on strengthening memory through a traditional visual memory game. The games are free and available on the Apple iTunes Store. Two of the games have additional packs, which can be purchased for 99 cents.
Lili & Lola, Big Bad Boo Studios' latest miniseries, launched earlier this year on several TV stations include Shaw Multicultural, ICI Television, TenTV and Oznoz.com. The show follows the adventures of two sisters who live in a small apartment in a big city. Lili & Lola celebrates cultural diversity by showcasing an Iranian family celebrating holidays like Norooz, the Persian New Year and introducing language to a young audience in a normalized fashion.
