Pre-Halloween thoughts

Maybe it’s because we’re starting to feel the pre-Halloween atmosphere – both where this celebration is a tradition and where it seems quite meaningless… Or it might be because there are pumpkins – smashing, more like it – all over the place, not just in supermarkets. Sure thing is, we can’t stand hearing “trick or treat?!” anymore. And it’s only October 17th!

One of our principles is to try and give recognition to others who have done a good job, too. This is why we wish to point out Hocusbookus and their Mr Sandman. Read this story before going to sleep and it will chase off even the most relentless remnants of fear of the dark.

The night is exactly what IT’s all about. Just how many times have your children begged you not to switch off the light and to sleep in your bed? Their bedrooms are infested by monsters that seem to be hiding everywhere! Under the bed, behind the curtains and inside the wardrobe: every corner of the room has been besieged! Any attempt at trying to talk them out of it is in vain.

We know it well here in Joy Tales. This is why we have thought of the perfect night-time story: The Naughty Fireflies. For all the parents who wish to sleep at night and for all the children who, instead, have no intention to!

October 4th. It is World Animal Day today!

As you can well imagine, we want to throw the best party ever for each one of our animals here in Joy Tales – there are lots of them!
So give way to the total chaos that every party brings.
“Who shall we invite? How many will come? Will they destroy the house? Where can we put all the new presents? Just how many things can a little child do with only two hands?”. Above all, the eternal debate: do we order take-away food or make everything ourselves? Then, we get really depressed when we see the devilish little creatures prefer a bowl of chemical crisps – that have seen a potato only once and that was a photograph – to a delicious homemade pie!

We have the answer to the great dilemma: at the end of the day, the best way to solve any problem is to hand it over to somebody else, isn’t it?! So, to make sure the celebration is really special, we are asking for your help!
Help us choose a birthday cake for all our animals: Tab, Camelia and the Three Prairie Dogs!

Send the secret ingredients of your favourite desserts – or drawings, video, photographs, recipes and any kind of proposal you can think of – to!

A piece of advice: the Three Prairie Dogs love cheese cake and Camelia likes any pudding with ricotta cheese! Indulge!

The best and most original ideas will be published on our Facebook page and the winners – chosen by our jury of expert animals – will receive a special thank you, with the autograph of your favourite Joy Tales character!
Let’s not waste any more time and get to work: grandparents, parents and children, babysitters and teachers, everybody!

PS: It’s not to play smart, but it’s also Saint Francis’ day today… who certainly had a special feeling with animals! So best wishes to everybody named Frances/is!

Keep at it!

To all our readers, to those who follow us on Facebook and Pinterest, to the ones that have already downloaded our app and have had fun reading the story about Tab over and over again with their children:
we invite you to keep spreading the word around!

From criticism to advice, everything is well-accepted: we need you for us to get better and better!

Keep on following us, make comments in the AppStore or on our blog, on the social networks, suggest the app to friends, family, uncles, grandparents and anyone who has kids around them!

Our aim is clear: we want to reach everybody!

We are making an appeal to finish with: Tab is not the only one, don’t forget about Camelia and the Three Prairie Dogs… they would be very disappointed!

They’re all waiting for you in the AppStore and if they ask you a small contribution it’s for the travel expenses… You know, tickets are not so cheap from Africa and the American Prairies!

It’s worth it. You won’t be disappointed!

Now in Italy, too!

For everybody who has been waiting for us, who have asked us over and over again “when will you be out in Italy?!”, for everyone who has shared the journey with us, who believed in us even before touching one complete story with their own hands, finally we can say:
Joy Tales is now out in Italy, too!

So, just a few words and lots of facts. We want all the work we have done up until now to tell you about it. We don’t want to say anything, we’ll have lots of time to do that. We don’t want to waste any more of your time: you have something more important to do now:
download Joy Tales, read, play!
