Too much travelling in the last couple of weeks has killed my ability to write a coherent post about the kids sector (there’s a lot going on there) so I thought I’d put together a quick list of the more interesting stories instead.
-The 2013 Ofcom report on the attitudes of kids towards media and digital was just released. It’s not a small document but I highly recommend it.
-App Annie releases an analytics platform for ebooks.
–Data from SuperAwesome at MIPjunior showing how kids are choosing tablets over games consoles this Christmas.
-Disney Infinity launches reasonably well in US (294k units in its first month, compared to 100k for Skylanders in its first month).
–Henry Hugglemonster greenlit for second season. Developed by the outrageously talented folks at Brown Bag Films in Dublin.
-Is Rovio turning into a digital TV network?
–All the slides from the SF Digital Kids Summit.
-Some great research by Interpret LLC on 6-12 kids and gaming, an area which is lacking solid data.
