Australian tech startup Weyo has partnered with The Wiggles and ABC Music to launch new app, The Wiggles – Fun Time with Faces. This dynamic app uses interactive video technology and augmented reality (AR) 3D masks to delight and excites children as they use their imagination and creativity to play along with The Wiggles.

The Wiggles – Fun Time with Faces app contains safe and engaging interactive content from The Wiggles, easily accessed on iPhone and iPad. Children can star in their own unique Wiggles interactive stories narrated by the Yellow Wiggle Emma, become Dorothy Dinosaur, have fun with face masks and filters, and sing and play along to The Wiggles’ videos. Kids will love using their imagination and creativity playing the starring role in their very own Wiggles journey. The app stays fresh and fun with more stories, songs, videos, masks and stickers added regularly, all to keep the little ones engaged and interactively entertained.

Of the launch of the new app, The Wiggles’ Founder and Blue Wiggle Anthony Field said, “It’s exciting for us to bring the fun of The Wiggles into an app where children can safely play offline on mum and dad’s iPhone or iPad and enjoy their favourite Wiggles characters and songs. Whether they’re playing their part as Dorothy Dinosaur, barking as Wags the Dog, or settling in for a story with Emma, we love that this app will bring happiness and joy to children which, after all, is what The Wiggles are all about.”

Weyo’s Co-founder Baz Palmer continues, “These days 95 per cent of kids under the age of five have access to a mobile device and parents worry about online safety and their kids consuming junk. When creating Weyo, our aim was to deliver quality content for children, so for our first launch app, we’ve teamed up with the most trusted brands – The Wiggles and ABC Music – to deliver the best age-appropriate content, all in one great premium app. With The Wiggles – Fun Time with Faces app, children can use their imaginations and get creative with their most loved Wiggles characters, all in a safe environment, giving parents much needed peace of mind.”

Children’s safety is paramount to Weyo, The Wiggles -Fun Time with Faces app is fully compliant with The Children’s Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA) and General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). This means the app is fully contained in the user’s device, with no user data collected and no user content saved on the app’s servers.
