Cupcake Digital and Discovery Communications’ Latest App, Discovery Kids Dinosaur Puzzle & Play, Roars Into App Stores


NEW YORK, NY – WEBWIRE – Thursday, April 24, 2014

Cupcake Digital, Inc. and Discovery Communications introduce Discovery Kids Dinosaur Puzzle & Play, a new app that provides kids the opportunity to play and learn about a wide range of dinosaurs that once roamed earth.  Geared toward young explorers ages 5 and under, kids complete puzzles in easy, medium or hard levels, in order to unlock animations and facts about each species.

Using the interactive format of Dinosaur Puzzle & Play, children can get creative through coloring pages featuring the fascinating, prehistoric creatures. The app is available for 99 cents for a limited time on the App Store, Amazon Appstore for Android, Google Play and the Barnes & Noble App Store for NOOK. Full retail price for the app will be $1.99.

“The Dinosaur Puzzle & Play app has been developed to bring dinosaurs to life for young children by blending colorful illustrations, animations and simple educational elements with fun activities. We hope that this will inspire preschoolers to learn more about these amazing prehistoric creatures,” said Cupcake Digital EVP of Brand and Business Development Amory Millard.

Dinosaur Puzzle & Play is the result of an ongoing collaboration between the two companies offering trusted, educational play apps inspired by the natural world delivering quality entertainment to kids. Discovery Kids Dinosaur Puzzle & Play was preceded by Hide & Seek Pets, an award-winning app under Discovery Communications’ Animal Planet brand that allows kids to play and learn with various household pets.

“Expanding on the success of Animal Planet Hide & Seek Pets, we are excited to launch another engaging app for children in partnership with Cupcake Digital,” said Elizabeth Bakacs, Vice President of Licensing for Discovery Kids.  “Discovery Kids Dinosaur Puzzle & Play fits perfectly within the Discovery Kids brand, which aims to ignite curiosity and encourages children to explore the world around them.”
