For our second “Meet a Real Live Artist” it leaves us breathless (more breathless than a captain’s parrot who’s eaten a whole box of saltines in one go) to introduce to you a dear friend of ours and an exceedingly talented English artist. Josephine Hague At one time Josephine worked in the model making department of Aardman Animations (that’s right those Wallace & Grommit folks), but now she gets to spend her time frolicking in […]
A kid recently asked us: what does an artist do? And we thought: good question! Then we thought: hey, we know some artists, let’s find out. And tada, just like that a new Kidoodle post series was born: “Meet a Real Live Artist”. We hope you can read these to your kids to spark their imagination, get them even more excited about art, and let them get a glimpse of the wide range of creative […]
This has been such an amazing year for us at Kidoodle! Thanks to all our fans, friends, and family for the amazing support and encouragement in getting our first app off the ground and getting new ones in the hopper! Kidoodle was born out of a desire to create arts-centered apps that parents trust and kids love, and my goal for 2013 is to bring in partners and funders for Kidoodle, so I can […]

Have you ever wondered how we go from idea to doodle to the completed app? Well, now you can see firsthand how that process works as Michelangelo shares this look into how a doodle page comes to life with a little drawing and imagination magic!
There’s a great new tablet in town and we’re pretty excited about – it’s the iPad Mini! It’s lighter, smaller and easier to carry than a regular iPad, making the iPad Mini perfect for small hands. Of course, Pirate Scribblebeard’s Treasure will be available on the iPad Mini at the same download price of $1.99 so iPad Mini owners will be able to join Oscar, Josephine, and their pirate friends on all sorts of imaginative […]
We’ve watched with sadness as Hurricane Sandy has devastated many areas of the East Coast. Millions are still without power, and many people have been displaced from their homes due to flooding and wind damage. We want to help support the relief efforts of the American Red Cross and those working to rebuild after the storm, which is why we’ll be donating all the proceeds from downloads of our app, Pirate Scribblebeard’s Treasure for the […]

There are reviews coming, new updates with fun new pages to draw on, and a version for Android tablets and the NOOKcolor are in production as we speak!
I recently unearthed, from the back of a deserted closet, an amazing book I’d bought for Oscar when he was much too young, and i was much too over-enthusiastic. It’s more appropriate now that he’s 6, but to be honest I think everyone from 5 years up would be inspired by it.
