With a saturated and homogeneous app market filled with lukewarm entertainment and copycats, some developers still try to make a difference.
Peppy Pals wants to nurture emotional intelligence for children in our increasingly digitalized age.
The award-winning game for children ages 2-6 is about empathy, friendship and emotions as you guide a group of animal friends in their daily adventures. The second version, “Peppy Pals Beach”, will release on February 10th for iOS and February 17th for Amazon and Google Play.

“By creating a new generation of children with higher emotional intelligence we are creating a world without bullying, hatred and exclusion.” Rosie Linder, CEO of Peppy Pals
