DISCOVER THE FUN IN READING TOGETHER

TaleThings brings you the very best of high-quality story book apps.

With top-notch production values and professional voice acting in different languages, our story book apps are designed in such a way that they can be enjoyed by teachers and families with children from a wide range of ages.

Our first book is called "3 Goats and a Troll" . It's a humorous retelling of the classic Norwegian folk tale "3 Billy Goats Gruff" and it is now available on the App Store.

Currently supported languages are:
English, Chinese (Simplified), Spanish, French, Dutch and Norwegian.


FOLLOW
ALONG

By default, the story will be read to you by our narrator, and young readers can follow along with the text through our word highlighting. Creative parents can use a variety of settings to tailor the experience. Choose other languages, read the story yourself or even make up your own story as you go through the pages.

PROFESSIONAL VOICES

We work with professional voice actors who are specifically chosen to match the atmosphere of our projects. The voice over narration of our story is available in multiple languages and performed in a way that is suitable for all ages.

OUTSTANDING VISUALS

Built with the Unity engine, our visuals respond to user interactions with playful animations and effects. Leveraging the advantages of game development technology, all our scenes are hand drawn and layered to create a 3D depth effect, controlled by tilting your device. This makes every scene come to life and helps to immerse the reader in the story.

NO
MONEY TRICKS

We believe that apps for children should include no in-game advertising, nor in-game purchases to unlock certain content. When you buy one of our story book apps you get to use the product in its entirety and as much as you want, uninterrupted.

EJOYABLE
BY MANY AGES

Our story book apps are designed in such a way that:

Ages 2-4 can marvel at the illustrations, play around with the interactive animations and effects, and listen to the story being told to them by the narrator, their parents or a teacher.

Ages 4-7, who are learning to read, can try to follow along with the narrator through our word highlighting feature.

Ages 7+ can try to read by themselves, or even try out different combinations of voice and text in multiple languages. Ideal for multilingual households.

Moreover, narration and text can also be completely turned off, to allow the kids, parents or teachers to make up their own story.

ABOUT

Why we do it

TaleThings is made by Possibly Pixels, a Belgian multimedia studio focusing on games and interactive media. After years of designing and developing educational games and apps in the academic field, Possibly Pixels was founded in 2013 by Jelle Husson, Jeroen Wauters and Lieven Van den Audenaeren.

Within Possibly Pixels, TaleThings was created by Jelle Husson with the initial goal to create a high quality story book app for his 2 year old niece. Building on the framework developed for the first book, Possibly Pixels is now planning to develop more.

Why it's important

Thinking back on our own experience of growing up with audiotape storybooks and wondering at the artwork, we wanted to recreate that magical feeling that inspires wonder.

Bringing these books into the digital age by means of interactive apps brings a new dimension of play and creativity. Books can provide inspiration, thought, expand kids' vocabulary and expose them to a wide range of language features.

Furthermore, reading and interacting with a book app together with parents, family members and teachers allows for some quality time spent together.
