[prMac.com] Helsinki, Finland - Kapu Toys' debut release, Kapu Forest, presents the wonders and discoveries of a northern forest to kids all over the world. In Kapu Forest, kids can explore nature and carry out mini-tasks with various different forest animals. From feeding berries to the hungry fox, to directing the lost mole home and helping the rabbit harvest its carrots, each mini-toy promotes fun play, use of cognitive skills and altruistic behavior. At the same time, the toy reconnects kids to nature by acting as an inspiration to continue the play in real nature.
Kapu Forest is also dedicated to bring generations together with a style and characters everyone loves - the original artwork is inspired by the 1950's children books and the works of the legendary illustrators such as Mr. Alain Gree. The exclusively composed score follows the ethereal and drifting mood of the 1960's Cool jazz movement.
Kapu Toys aims to support kids in taking their first digital steps in a safe environment by avoiding rising levels, time limits and high scores.
