A Top New App for Kids – “Pocket SpottyWot”

( The WotWots has today released a top new app for kids, “Pocket SpottyWot”, a fun and interactive exploration experience suitable for iPhone and iPad use and is now available on iTunes globally,, for an affordable $0.99 USD.

Sure to be one of the best apps available for entertaining toddlers, “Pocket SpottyWot” is a unique application that allows for SpottyWot to be tickled and poked, encouraged to speak and even spun around in his hover chair for squeals of fun. For quieter moments and to encourage rest, kids can also pet SpottyWot to help him go to sleep.

Staying true to the brand’s fundamentals of delighting in discovery and celebrating the diversity of life on the planet, giving it an element of an educational application, the “Pocket SpottyWot” application encourages preschoolers to find and learn more about animals including giraffes, crocodiles, elephants and more in the Sneak-a-Peek viewfinder.

A useful and informative guide and demonstration of the new application by co-creator of The WotWots, Martin Baynton, can be found at

Following on from the successful release of the ‘Lanky Landing Legs’ free e-book last year which received a Parents’ Choice Award in the Spring 2011 Mobile Apps category, “Pocket SpottyWot” promises lots of fun for little ones to engage with the lovable blue alien from The WotWots and will guarantee its place as a best app for children.

The WotWots is an enchanting pre-school series that follows the adventures of two adorable siblings from outer space, SpottyWot and DottyWot.
