This bright, colourful and inspiring interactive world features all 26 letters of the alphabet reimagined as brilliantly bonkers animals, featuring stunning 3D animation and whimsical word-play. Alpha Zoo inspires children to explore the alphabet and rewards them for doing so. Every letter successfully navigated unlocks its animal counterpart and tongue twisting rhyme – from ant-snorting anteaters and fancy flamingos to slithery snakes and wobbly walrus.

With 26 lovingly crafted residents, we believe Alpha Zoo will capture the imagination of families everywhere – not just our own children, nieces and nephews. That’s where you come in. 

We need the help of lovely people like you so we can bring Alpha Zoo to life. Development is already well under way, as we set about creating something that we believe is truly unique. Every penny we raise will go towards ensuring our world is the best it can be, with the Alpha Zoo gates ready to open in time for Christmas 2013. 

So here’s a big THANK YOU for supporting our project – from us humans and all of the animals at Alpha Zoo.

MEET THE ALPHA ZOO WARDENS

Gareth Hopkins, Stu Jackson and Jonny Severn have no experience of working in an actual zoo. However a lifelong love of storytelling, design and mind-boggling technology brought these three creative types together. Between them they have over 30 years' experience delivering award-winning software, products and creative campaigns for some of the world's biggest brands including Jaguar, Sony, Microsoft, Land Rover and EA.

We’ve pulled together a list of gifts to thank you for your support, including gorgeous screenprints of your favourite letter, a personalised print of your name using our animal typography, plus a copy of our limited edition Alpha Zoo book. Huzzah!

Become an honorary Alpha Zoo warden and help us to open the gates at our wonderfully wacky world.

Risks and challenges

The app is already in development and we’re confident of finishing ahead of our planned launch date in December. The money we raise will go towards
ensuring our app meets the highest of standards, including additional functionality, calling on our animator friends to help us create something truly special.
