May we start by giving you a very warm welcome to Ooks HQ - we’re delighted you’ve taken the time to drop by! We love to share what we are up to with others. At Zulleon we specialise in creating and developing great play experiences for kids. We are currently working on a digital offering to be called ‘OOKS’. Ooks are the stars of this virtual world, crazy critters always ready for mischief! The Ook characters are made up of ‘storystuff’.
In the Ooks world, the kids will start with a blank Ook which they take on a storytelling journey. As this enlightening journey unfolds, the Ook’s storystuff develops. At the end of the journey, the child has their very own personsalised Ook, and a story that they themselves created. In a sense, the child has become an author, and the journey that they have taken to become this is a powerful one giving the child a sense of achievement and pride.
At Zulleon, we are big on books, reading and of course storytelling. We want to engage kids in this literal world but only in a way that is fun, and sure let’s say even a little bit mad! So that’s where these crazy little guys come in!
We can currently be found on PopJam where we’ve been engaging with our community of 20,000 followers! PopJam has allowed us to test and develop content to ensure the best user experience for the child. The feedback so far has been phenomenal and after a lot of blood, sweat and tears, we’re so excited to launch the Ooks interactive world into the digisphere.
One thing that the kids especially love is to be Ookified. When we know different traits about a user we can Ookifiy them or turn them into a digitally illustrated Ook. Here you can see the process of drawing the Ooks. Our artists come up with all sorts of wacky and wonderful ideas which make our kids feel really special.
Becoming Ookified is only a small part of what we do with our brand so far. We haven’t even launched the world yet but we are still engaging the kids with writing stories, character profiling, crosswords and puzzles, creative art competitions and lots more. We recently had a Q&A session with the kids where we had to opportunity to answer some very interesting and intelligent questions from a community of inquisitive kids, eager to learn.
We’re really enjoying this journey, and again thank you for stopping by. If you have any questions about our company or products, please feel free to get in touch. We are more than happy to chat to everyone and anyone about our ideas and sure if you’re in the area, stop by for a cuppa!
