NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- We all talk to our pets, but imagine if they could understand you and even talk back to you! Blythe Baxter, a small-town girl who just moved to the big city, discovers her special ability in the nick of time--but will it be enough to save the LITTLEST PET SHOP from going out of business? LITTLEST PET SHOP: PET STYLE is an interactive storybook app from PlayDate Digital, under license from Hasbro, Inc. The app is based off the hit animated series LITTLEST PET SHOP, airing on Discovery Family in the United States.
When Blythe stumbles upon a group of pets chattering away in the LITTLEST PET SHOP day camp below her apartment, she has no idea what fun is in store for her! It's going to take Blythe's keen eye for style, a bunch of talented pets, and the reader's help to save the day with a pet fashion show.
"Combining the unique personalities of Blythe and the pets from the television series with the collectability of the toy line has been quite exciting! We wanted to create an engaging experience for children in our debut storybook app for the LITTLEST PET SHOP brand," said Shaan Kandawalla, Co-Founder of PlayDate Digital. "Through the app's interactive features, like decorating Blythe's room, collecting deco bits, and styling the pets for the runway, the child can personalize, customize, and share their creations with friends!"
"We are so thrilled that our LITTLEST PET SHOP characters are being brought to life in a completely new way via a beautifully designed storybook app," said Samantha Lomow, Senior Vice President of Hasbro Brands. "A truly interactive experience, this app allows children to be part of Blythe's adventure through enhanced activities and fashion-focused fun!"
