Co-developed by Bubble Guppies series creators, Johnny Belt and Robert Scull
and curriculum specialists, and tested by focus groups, the app teaches kids
all about animals and allows them to take part in a day of play at school.
Through a series of interactive games, kids will learn about animal diet,
animal habitats and animal attributes- what penguins like to eat, where baby
giraffes live, and what zebras and clownfish have in common (stripes!).
As kids follow any of the ten featured animals and complete an Animal School
Day, they earn a Gold Star - a Gold Starfish, that is – which rewards them and
encourages them to earn more. Along the way, kids will laugh along with the
Bubble Guppies' animal-themed jokes such as: What kind of dog has the cleanest
hair? A sham-poodle!
In addition to playing through an entire Animal School Day, kids can choose to
play one of the four rich and replayable educational games on their own. After
every game, kids earn a reward sticker or a toy for Bubble Puppy. They can
then visit and decorate Bubble Puppy's doghouse to see and interact with their
Bubble Guppies is created and executive-produced by Jonny Belt and Robert

episode of Bubble Guppies, the characters lead the learning process,
discovering something of interest on their way to school and exploring that
theme from a variety of angles. Bubble Guppies focuses on a wide range of
topics and everyday experiences kids can relate to – from dinosaurs to
dentists, rock n' roll to recycling, and colors to cowboys. The half-hour
series features a variety show format with a strong narrative that relates to
