Wild Kratts introduces Baby Buddies app

PBS KIDS has announced the launch of the all-new WILD KRATTS Baby Buddies App, a science-focused app based on the popular animal-themed kids series, now available on iPhone, iPad, iPod touch and Android devices. In WILD KRATTS Baby Buddies, kids join Kratt brothers Chris and Martin on a creature-sitting adventure in the African Savannah, as they help care for baby animals. Intended for children ages 3-8, the app gives kids the opportunity to learn about animal care and science.

In addition to feeding, washing, protecting and playing with the baby animals, the WILD KRATTS Baby Buddies app allows children to discover something new and exciting every time they play. The animals include a baby elephant, cheetah, zebra, aardvark, and crocodile.

WILD KRATTS airs weekdays at 5:30 p.m. on Rhode Island PBS. In each episode, creature adventurers Chris and Martin Kratt take children and their families along on extraordinary animal-powered adventures. The show transforms the Kratt Brothers, creators of the award-winning Kratts’ Creatures and Emmy-winning Zoboomafoo, into animated versions of themselves, allowing the real-life zoologists to visit wild animals in their little-seen habitats, showcasing key science concepts along the way. The series is a co-production of The Kratt Brothers Company and Emmy-winning 9 Story Entertainment.

The WILD KRATTS Baby Buddies App is now available for $1.99 from the App Store, Amazon and Google Play.
