The latest news from Acamar Films
Acamar Films’ very first app, Bing Baking, has won a bronze award for Best Children’s App at the MadeForMums Toy Awards. The app, co-developed with the digital team at Aardman, allows youngsters to bake yummy-delicious biscuits with Bing and Flop and is available to buy on all mobile platforms including the AppStore, Google Play and Amazon.
The judges praised the app for being “sweet, simple and slow-paced: ideal for toddlers and preschoolers,” as well as noting that “Bing fans will adore the high-quality animation and letting their creative side run riot with the different icings, sprinkles and toppings (bonus points for healthy fruit options!).”
‘Brooke was really excited about playing the game, making the biscuits and ‘eating’ them. There is a brilliant range of colours and decorations and the narration is great.’
