A Problem Solved!
There is joy and strength in simplicity and I have brought it into my apps for children – a quiet beautiful place of interactive animation where your child can learn screen skills and build confidence without being distracted by loud noises and fast action
Promise of Joy
Simple joys are perfect for toddlers and it gives me pleasure to share my apps with mums and dads knowing they can trust them to bring joy and quality active screen time shared together – young children will also find pleasure playing it alone
Learning screen skills is an important part of a toddler’s young life and it’s important to make it fun!
With lindybelinda apps there are 16 different scenes for little kids to explore at their own pace, discovering one thing at a time, with realistic sound effects bringing everything to life.
They will also find the joy of a drag and drop puzzle which teaches hand eye coordination as they learn how to place fun objects with care – which in turn brings a sense of wellbeing as they start and complete a project
I have always been fascinated by the visual world of line and colour – especially when movement is involved. To draw a leaf ready to fall from a tree is a delight – to make it float through the air – almost magical!
The Thrill of Discovery
A lifetime of art and creativity has led me to the world of animated children's books…
My illustrations are painted in the traditional fashion on paper using watercolour, pencil and ink before being scanned into the computer ready for animating – which brings them to life! It always feels like magic to see a hand drawn cat blink for the first time.
For the past 25 years I have loved playing my harp at weddings and although very enjoyable, music is invisible to the eye, and it is the visual world that gives me the biggest thrill – so when asked recently to illustrate a children’s book for the Sydney Jewish Museum, I found myself surrounded with colour and paints – and knew I was home
From Prince Charles to Painting!
I was very excited when I saw the first publicity for my new adventure into animated apps – it came quite unexpectedly in a local magazine where the editor had chosen my illustration of a little cat which suddenly appeared quite formerly dressed for the occasion!
It marked a very special end to my harp career when I was asked to play at a State Occasion for Prince Charles at beautiful Admiralty House - a magical evening I will never forget
How it All Began
Why did I start this new animated adventure? I was watching my granddaughter having fun tapping her iPad with surprising squeals of joy as the screen showed doors opening and closing – and I thought, I want to do it too! What fun I could have creating drawings that change with a simple tap
Then came the struggle! I assumed I could simply book into a class, put up my hand as a shortcut to every answer I required, and begin – but there was no class teaching what I wanted to learn, other than serious diplomas for clever complicated gaming!
For the first time in my life I had to teach myself everything I wanted to know by going online searching for answers alone. It’s not my preferred way to learn and I really missed the security of sitting in class with a teacher for support! It was hard work and took a long time – and I nearly gave up.
It was simply the thought of cats hiding under leaves popping out making me smile that kept me trying
The dream finally became reality! Looking for Cats was my first interactive animated book with realistic sound effects published on the Apple Store – and I was beside myself with excitement!
Lindybelinda books began to grow and with help, and a lot of work, is now publishing iOS Apps full of fun encouraging children to develop their interactive screen skills by observation and play bringing joy to all
Tap and discover brings out the child in you!
… and it’s a Great Price!
