Sweet and Shorts: The Lonely Beast 123


I haven’t spent a ton of time exploring apps, but when I stumble on one that gobsmacks me around, I take notice.

(Side note: my friend Koseli, Design Mom’s Discovery Editor, has reviewed a bunch, and she always finds the loveliest ones! You can find her reviews here.)

Watch this. It’s The Lonely Beast 123 by Irish publisher Pilcrow.

breaker 3coats_table Black_iPad_Birds Black_iPad_Fish I’m a sucker for this Beast, his hairy type, and his whimsical world of numbers. It’s road trip season, so if you’re looking for something beautiful and worthwhile for all of that backseat time, check this one out!

The Lonely Beast 123 was created by Chris, James and Simon in their little shed at the end of The Beast’s garden. Their first app, The Lonely Beast ABC, featured in an iPad TV commercial and on billboards around the world, was winner of the Editor’s Choice Award from Children’s Technology Review, and a finalist for the Bologna Ragazzi Digital Award at the Bologna Children’s Book Fair.
