What was the initial inspiration for Astrid and Siri?
I was inspired by my children and lack of an enchanting forest in our New York City apartment. I dreamt of a world in which my daughters, Astrid and Siri, lived in the Arctic in a charming cottage and designed clothing for their animal friends. Inspired by my Scandinavian heritage and childhood passion for clothing design, my dream was to create an enchanting story and interactive world for young girls to fall in love with, just like my daughters have.
What is your favorite aspect of your app?
I love the finger painting feature that allows you to feel like you are really part of the design process. The magic of painting the dresses and the feeling that you are sewing the clothing onto the characters is very special. Also, when I interact with the app I see my family in the characters and the voices are my husband and children. It was an enormously special project that captured a moment in the lives of my family and it is a gift to them.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
I also want to say that when I wrote and designed the book, I did it with my children. I used phrases that they would say and the characters are inspired by them. When I designed fabric prints and colors, I always got the okay from them before it made it into the book. My husband is Polar Bear because he is always in the kitchen whipping up food for the family. It’s a story about the fashion design process but it is also a story about love and friendship. The characters help each other and if one of the characters was missing the story would not be complete and Astrid would be unable to make her dream come true. It is about life and togetherness.
We will be launching in the fall a magical world of fashion and fun where children can set their imagination free and be transported to Astrid & Siri’s Arctic fairytale world. ~ Tara
