Gombby’s Green Island, a colorful CGI animation television series appealing to kids ages three to five, daily entertains kids in Portugal and Spain, and is soon set to launch for the Arab-speaking world as well. Now, thanks to a new app for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch, Gombby and his friends from Green Island can entertain and educate English-speaking children as well.
The Gombby's Green Island series, created and developed by Big Storm Studios and 100% made in Portugal, aims to help children develop their personal and social skills while stimulating their creativity and resourcefulness. The ever-cheerful baker boy named Gombby and his buddies—including his best friend Celeste, Stawy the Scarecrow, Gadget Man, the wise Professor and many more—introduce basic educational building blocks that support their general knowledge and help them be more aware and appreciative of the world around them.
Kids will appreciate the fun and parents will appreciate the lessons passed along—after being fully reviewed by an experienced team of child psychologists.

It took several minutes for me to download the app and episode (on my iPhone 3GS). Once loaded, I had the pleasure of watching the first of the three free episodes, titled "Why's that?". After viewing the colorful and engaging at 13-minute episode in which Gombby seeks the answer to why apples fall from trees but the moon doesn't fall from the sky, I have no doubt Bubby and Mac will be excited to get to know Gombby, Celeste, their musical birds Re and Mi, and all the interesting (and educational) characters inhabiting Green Island. It's a sweet series with serious value that I'll be delighted to share with my grandsons.
