[prMac.com] Seoul, Republic of Korea - YFactory today is pleased to introduce Action Sticker HD - YooHoo&Friends Lite 1.0 for iPad, their new Education app that allows young children to follow the adventures of the world-famous, stuffed toy characters based on animals, many endangered species, created by Aurora World. The animated, interactive app features 12 different adventures starring YooHoo, Sparkee, Roodee, Lemmee, and Ringring. Employing Gardner's theory of "Multiple Intelligences," the app's stories, games, and puzzles engage kids on every level. Action Sticker HD - YooHoo&Friends Lite 1.0 for iPad and Action Sticker - YooHoo&Friends Lite 1.0 for iPhone / iPod touch are part of the global YooHoo & Friends phenomenon, where kids can join together to help create Yootopia.
Multiple Intelligences is an educational theory advocated by Howard Gardner (a professor of Cognition and Education at Harvard Graduate School of Education), stating that not only do human beings have several different ways of learning and processing information, but these methods are relatively independent from another; leading to multiple intelligences as opposed to a general intelligence factor among correlated abilities. The theory of Multiple Intelligences has received much attention from academicians studying Early Childhood Education.
The app stars the original YooHoo & Friends: YooHoo, the male Bush Baby from East Africa; Sparkee, the female Striped Skunk from North America; Roodee, the male Capuchin Monkey from Northern Argentina; Lemmee, the male Lemur from Madagascar; and Ringring, the male Giant Panda from Central China. Together, these friends have adventures all over the world.

At launch in landscape orientation, the female narrator introduces the app, and all 12 adventures can be previewed from a rotating display wheel. At the start of many adventures, kids are challenged to fit the animal jigsaw puzzle pieces into shaped cutouts. On touching an animal piece, they double in size and can be dragged to fill in the appropriate part of the puzzle. Adventures make use of multiple intelligences, including: taste, touch, smell, sight, hearing, numbers, musical notes, maze solving, mechanical inventions, sound effects and more. Each adventure incorporates several interactive activities. Also included is the ability to create customized YooHoo & Friends Christmas or greeting cards from a library of eight different cards. Kids can include a photo and a message in each card, save, and share them via email.
