Award-Winning Old MacDonald HD by Duck Duck Moose Launched for iPad

PALO ALTO (April 12, 2011) – Independent children’s app developer Duck Duck Moose today is pleased to announce the launch of Old MacDonald HD 1.0 for the iPad. This award-winning title by Duck Duck Moose was originally launched for the iPhone in 2009, and is a top-selling children’s app on the AppStore. Old MacDonald is a fun, interactive musical book for children, with different languages (English, Spanish, French, German, and Italian), several instruments (violin, cello, piano, kazoo), and a “record-your-own-voice” feature.

Duck Duck Moose’s unique rendition of the popular song Old MacDonald includes a philosopher cow, a painter Pig-casso, spaceships, mid-century modern furniture, and disco dancing sheep. All the illustrations are manipulable; children can shear a sheep, flip a cow, push a tractor, make ducks waddle, pop balloons, and much more.

The iPhone version of Old MacDonald by Duck Duck Moose was the winner of the 2010 Parents’ Choice Gold Award and the Children’s Technology Review “Editor’s Choice Award for Excellence in Design.” It has been recommended by The New York Times, The Huffington Post, Macworld, The San Francisco Chronicle, MSNBC, and ParentDish. It has also appeared on national television in an episode of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition.

“This popular app will keep your toddlers occupied with colorful, interactive illustrations and songs,” wrote Michelle Higgins in the Practical Traveler column in the New York Times.
