SAN DIEGO, June 21, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Baby Genius®, the award winning brand of musical edu-tainment for infants and toddlers created by the founders of Pacific Entertainment Corporation (OTCQB:PENT), is going mobile with the release of the first two interactive 3D animated apps for iPad™, iPhone®, and iPod touch®, it was announced today by CCO Larry Balaban.
Tempo and Frankie are the first Baby Genius characters to join LeftRight's MYPAL series of apps and will be joined by other Baby Genius characters starring in their own new MYPAL apps later this year. MYPAL Tempo and MYPAL Frankie are now available on the App StoreSM for the iOS and will soon be available for other mobile and emerging tablet devices.
Created and produced by mobile and online content producer LeftRight, MYPAL Tempo and MYPAL Frankie represent a new generation of beloved Baby Genius characters in speech detection apps that repeat a child's words in the character's own cool voice, and allow video recording and video sharing with friends on YouTube, Facebook or through email. A simple touch brings Tempo or Frankie to life with engaging, entertaining animated actions. The musical mini games are loads of fun and come with different screen filters – another industry first from LeftRight – including normal, sepia, black and white, and fish eye in color, to make each interactive experience four times the fun.
"It is exciting to be bringing our beloved characters to children with innovative apps created by LeftRight, a leading company that is definitely on the cutting edge of mobile application technology," said Balaban. "We look forward to a long and successful relationship working together with the amazing talent at LeftRight to deliver on the Baby Genius mission of providing entertainment that nurtures and stimulates children with creative new apps."
