About this project

Join us (Gearheads) in bringing the Yumbies to life and creating their world...

Get Creative!

As the Yumbies evolve, we want you involved at every level. The more ideas and creativity, the better! Our goal is to build the world of the Yumbies with you.

To start with, you can vote for your favorite Yumby on: http://www.Yumby.com

The Yumbies with the most votes will be featured in our very first games, clothing and toys:

Here are screen shots from our game Yumby Toss, which will be coming out on the iPhone, iPad, Kindle, NOOK & Android. In this game, your goal is to toss your Yumby and guide it through the air as it tries to grab all the cakes.

We have created five worlds to play, each with their own unique challenges.

Grassy World

Licorice World

Frozen World

Chocolate World

Mad Lab World
