The most popular bedtime story on the App Store! Over 6 million downloads.

„App of Year“ awarded by Apple!

"Nighty Night!" is the perfect App for a daily go-to-sleep ritual with cute animals, sweet lullaby music and great narration. All around the house the lights go out, and in the barn even the animals are tired. But who puts them to bed? Who turns out the lights in their stalls? That is the task for small children aged 1-4. Watching all the animals go to sleep is a lovely way to set the mood for bedtime.

"You feel as if you are playing inside of a beautifully animated movie." // USA TODAY / 4 stars out of 4

"Nighty Night!" is brought to you from Oscar-Nominee Heidi Wittlinger (2002, best animated short) who brings a lot of passion and effort in constructing little sets made of paper and combining them with 2D illustration and animation.


1. Stunning designs by Oscar nominated artist Heidi Wittlinger
2. Illustration and animation in 2D
3. Thirteen interactive animals (Dog, Pig, Sheep, Duck, Cow, Fish, Chicken, Pony, Spider, Goat, Cats, Rabbit etc.)
6. Switch between winter and summer version
7. Autoplay function
8. Languages: English, German, Spanish, French, Dutch, Swedish, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Turkish, Chinese and Japanese.


"This book finally proves to me that a kids book can be as great electronically as they are on paper. The artwork is stunning, the narration is pitch perfect well suited to its theme. (...) Buy this book, it´s truly art"


"There's bags of innovation happening right now around Apps for children, especially those that blend storytelling, animation and interactivity. Nighty Night! is one of the latest and greatest examples." // THE GUARDIAN UK

Editors’ Notes

This charming bedtime story will soothe your young child with delightful imagery and a simple but engaging spoken tale. Inside an exquisitely illustrated farmhouse, adorable woodland animals need help turning out the lights to fall asleep. Intuitive controls and fun interactive surprises make Nighty Night a pleasure to explore, and with optional narration, you and your toddler can settle in to be entertained or bring your own imaginations to the wonderful nighttime world.

Wonderful Children’s App!

I got this many years ago and my grandchildren have continued to love it! When they sleep over at Nana’s, we always put the animals to sleep before they go to bed. It reminds them that everyone goes to sleep! I purchased the extra animals and they are even more adorable than expected! What a great job the developers have done on this app and I highly recommend it. The app works like a charm and we have used it regularly for at least six years! When I have run into a glitch, their customer service is outstanding.

Not Happy

I purchased this app back in April of 2016 and have had it on both my iPhone and iPad for all these years. My grandkids love to play it (even purchased ALL of the extra animals). However, at some point the app stopped appearing on my iPhone and when I try to redownload it the only thing that comes up in the App Store is another version that costs me $2.99. I already paid for the app and still have Nighty NIght Circus on both iPhone and iPad. However, Fox and Sheep are now saying you have to purchase the iPhone version of Nighty Night separately if you want it on your phone. Sounds like all they want is revenue and I don’t think I will be purchasing anymore of their apps. I really get tired of buying apps and at some point the developers decide to slightly change something and in doing so expect you to just blindly fork over more money. Not great customer service. Would complain to Apple but I’m not that tech savvy.
