UFO Interactive Games, Inc., a leading publisher of interactive entertainment, announces inaugural releases from the newly-established UFO Family line of edutainment products targeted to children between the ages of three and seven. These first casual video games for kids, the Storybook DS and Smart Kid’s series on Nintendo DS, are now available at major retailers.
“We are filling a great need for parents by introducing — for the first time ever on Nintendo DS — engaging and educational video games made specifically for younger players in a market teeming with inappropriate and sometimes violent content,” said Jonathan Wan, CEO of UFO Interactive Games. “Parents can feel good about introducing their kids to video games through this new line on Nintendo DS.”
The Storybook line features read-aloud popular fairy tales such as The Three Little Pigs and the Frog Prince that encourage parents and children to play together. Each story has four skill-based mini games to stimulate learning play including a coloring book, instrument play with recording ability, a counting numbers exercise and a free-form drawing pad.
The Smart Kids series engages children’s imaginations with mini-games that entertain while reinforcing basic cognitive and creative skills in a simple format that the youngest players can understand. It also keeps track of birth dates to launch birthday greetings for parents and child. The series offers Smart Boy’s Gameroom, Smart Girl’s Playhouse and Smart Kid’s Gameclub which is a compilation of both the other titles designed for families with multiple siblings.
