“Look, I’m Making it Up!” is a magical story that introduces children to the concept of improvisation and develops their creativity and curiosity.

Meet Camilo, a free - spirited young boy who likes to do things in his own original way. Camilo loves to play music, dance, build, bake and paint. He also loves to put his own personal stamp on every thing he does. When Camilo hears distant sounds of jazz music coming from the park, his mom takes him there to listen. Camilo learns a new word from the musicians, IMPROVISATION. He quickly realizes that he has been an improviser all along!

In the age of technology, with robots and AI on the rise, creativity stands out as a key component for future generations to succeed with, both personally and professionally. Early development of open mindedness, imagination and the ability to improvise will set our children on a road to success in tomorrow’s world. With "Look, I'm Making it Up!", our goal is to bring these important concepts to kids in a clear, enjoyable and interactive way.

Great app young kids can play independently!

My daughter is loving the games- mostly the music and cookie decorating ones- and I love that the story is ‘read’ to her without her needing me. She's figured out how to navigate the entire app on her own. She can not only play this app independently but her creativity and imagination is being put to use at the same time! And as a parent, the background noise is just right- not too loud or screechy or annoying!

Creative and beautifully illustrated

Both my 6 and 3 year old sons love this app. They stay happily engaged whenever they play. When reading the story they show such delight clicking through each screen to uncover the whimsical fun animations. My youngest enjoys playing dress up! So happy to have a game on my phone that taps into their creativity!

Amazing and fun!

This app is has such fun animations and a very cute story. I love the illustrations and design: There are so many things kids can tap on on each page while they learn about words, music and activities! The cat that appears throughout the stories is very adorable as well.
