Shoonya Jungle Animals is now part of SHOONYA KIDS: LEARN LANGUAGES. Download SHOONYA KIDS for ongoing newer content, updated monthly. THIS APP WILL NOT BE UPDATED.

Just like Shoonya Farm Animals, Shoonya Jungle Animals offers an interactive experience for children to view animals as their friends, enjoy them as pets, and delight in dressing them up as they do themselves while learning the names of fifteen jungle animals in nine different languages: English, Spanish, German, Arabic, Hindi, Marathi, Punjabi, Telugu, and Gujarati.

Motive: To encourage children to learn languages and gain familiarity with apparel, accessories, and music from cultures other than their own. Each animal name is introduced in a full sentence, along with vocabulary words describing outfits and landscapes. Designed to spark imagination as children dress up the animals with clothing, textiles, and designs sourced from around the world. Created and tested in classrooms to enhance fine motor skills by expanding and rotating the clothing and accessories.

English, Hindi, Punjabi, Spanish, Arabic, German, Marathi and Telugu.

Each animal name is introduced in a full sentence, along with vocabulary words describing outfits and landscapes.

This is an auto play mode with a full immersion technique.
Children enjoy fun animations of animal characters created from around the world.
Choose a desired target language from the language scroll bar on the homescreen and tap on the language window for you to see all the animals displayed in the carousel.
A double tap on the age window or a single tap on the carousel slide will start the animations.

Motive: Entertain and stimulate the child’s brain at the time when a child’s brain development is at the highest. Research shows that a human brain is hardwired to learn upto three languages by the age of six. One can take advantage of this special window by exposing a child to multiple foreign languages through this full immersion technique or use it to expose the child to a single target language.

2. PLAY:
Interactive play mode.
Live Animals with natural sounds.
Touch to enjoy animal characters with fun animations.
Explore animal names in various languages.

Motive: To engage the child with interactive play. This is the age when most children are learning to relate animal names with real animals. This mode gives them an opportunity to learn by interacting with the content. They can learn the animals in target language, be exposed to various foreign languages or simply enjoy the fun animations.

Designed to spark children’s imagination as they dress up the animal and create their own pet with clothing, textures and designs sourced from around the world.
Created and tested in classrooms to enhance fine motor skills while they expand, rotate, stretch the clothing and accessories.
Introduction to sentences in multiple languages.
Touch to learn various landscapes and simple words.

Motive: Encourage children to have fun with languages and explore world clothing, accessories, textures. While every child is unique and their prior knowledge with technology will determine what play mode will will like to interact, this one particularly interests children for fun play.

At Shoonya, our mission is to create a love for cultural diversity and world languages among young children. We believe that the world is getting flatter, and in order to raise our children as the next generation of global citizens, they need global exposure. We foster this by creating content that is diverse, and enrich children's global perspective by engaging with fun, interactive content in multiple language.

Love the app!

Our kids are big fans of Shoonya’s apps. They really enjoyed playing with the farm animals . It is amazing to see so many clothing from different parts of the world and to play with multiple languages. My son has a friend who speaks German so he learnt to speak animal animals in German to impress him. He also speak hindi at home so he is learning. We have always needed to get different apps to support different languages so we are very happy that this company encourages multiple languages at the same time.

Another fantastic app in the series

What better way to teach kids about languages and cultures than through animals - kids love them!! The characters are cute - my favorite is the tortoise. My daughter enjoyed learning what animals are called in different languages - the outfits are engaging and so are the expressions!!

Great app!! 4 year old loves it..

Another great app from Shoonya! My 4 year old enjoyed the Farm animals app a lot and simply loves the Jungle animals app. The animations, music and accessories are fun, engaging and effective. I love how something that my son thinks of purely as play, grows his vocabulary and introduces him to the sounds, attire and accessories of different cultures.
