Tiger, Hippo and Monkey need a friend! They’re looking for someone to help them dress up, take funny photos, and play games. Will you be their friend?

Tiny Tiger and Friends is a game for iPhone, iPod Touch and iPad designed to connect children ages 2-5 with some delightful imaginary friends.

The Curio Dept. has teamed up with award-winning children's book illustrator Steven D'Amico (“Ella the Elegant Elephant”, soon to be an animated series) to create a hand-made game that feels like a classic children's picture book.

• Take a souvenir photograph of your pal!
• Play Peek-A-Boo! Tiny Tiger and Friends version of the classic game!

• And more on the way!

Cute, educational and fun

This app is easy to use, fun and educational. The graphics are super cute - I mean, who doesn't like tigers and hippos!? Unlike some other reviewers, I found the optional sound effects to add delight.

Lots of fun

Found out about tiny tiger from other parents at the playground. Kids (3 & 5) loved playing dress up and the whack-a-mole like game. Ok, I admit it, I had a little fun with that one too. 😀
