What was the initial inspiration for your app?
Our company, Red Card Studios, made the decision in early 2013 to shift our focus from designing, developing and producing projects for technology firms and corporations to something we’re much more passionate about – educational apps for children. We decided that our first children’s app would be an interactive book and we decided to turn Veggie Bottoms, an original idea I had loosely sketched out earlier in 2012, into that app. The idea of Veggie Bottoms came about via my own growing awareness in recent years of the foods I eat – specifically where they come from, how they are processed, and the nutritional value they provide – and wanting to share that awareness with a younger audience. The key, for me, was finding a way to present that material in a fun and engaging way that would really resonate with kids. The idea was simple: Kids, almost universally, find their bottoms funny. Let’s create a family of fun fruit and vegetable characters who educate the reader about their healthy benefits but, also, just happen to have funny little bottoms. As a child, I always found that if educational material was presented in an entertaining and / or relatable way, I almost always retained that information better. I think the general consensus was that if we could reach just a handful of kids with our message, even if it’s through our humorous little app, then our app was a success.
What is your favorite aspect of your app?
Overall, my favorite aspect of the app are the characters themselves. I feel like we were able to create a very unique family of distinct fruit and veggie characters through how they were written, how they were designed, and how they were voiced that seem to really stick with kids. To give a brief personal example – My girlfriend has a framed print of “Georgia Beet”, a character from the book, hanging on the wall in her kitchen. One afternoon we were set to babysit her young niece, Casey, who is not yet able to read but had played with Veggie Bottoms on her iPad a few weeks prior. When Casey first arrived, she stopped in the kitchen, looked up at the framed print and said, “That’s Georgia Beet!” excitedly. And, I admit, I grinned ear to ear. We had received similar feedback from teachers who had used the app in their classrooms and found that kids had remembered characters from the app or made the connection between specific characters and their real-life veggie counterparts but this was the first time I had seen a connection like this myself.
Aside from the characters, my favorite parts of the app are really the small details – I love the fact that several of the characters’ voices, like “The Snap Brothers”, sound muffled when you initially get to their page. But, if you slide their pod open, you reveal the funny little peas and their voices become crystal clear.
Is there anything else you would like to share with our readers?
We managed to partner up with a great initiative called Fruits & Veggies: More Matters – which is a health initiative working to help Americans increase fruit and vegetable consumption. Our app is completely free. There are no ads. There is no “lite” version. All we ask is that, if you enjoy the app, we have implemented a small 99 cent in-app purchase that allows the user to personalize the book with his or her name and, of that 99 cents, 30% of all our proceeds go to Fruits & Veggies: More Matters. Other than that, we had a lot of fun making this app, we’re extremely proud of it, and we hope that everyone enjoys it as much as we do.
