Sept. 4, 2012 - PRLog -- August 2012 – San-X Co., Ltd., one of the largest character-oriented manufacturers in Japan, and Jen X Productions, Inc. are thrilled to announce that The Space Hamsters™ animated book and game app is now available on the iTunes App Store. The Space Hamster brand was launched earlier this summer at the International Licensing Expo and the game app is the first opportunity for children to experience interacting with the Space Hamsters up-close. Appropriate for ages 2-8, the new app is an effective tool to entertain and educate children about the solar system and caring for animals, while also improving hand-eye coordination.

The new Space Hamsters™ iOS app is one of the first products that give users a glimpse of the loveable characters and their Hamster homeland---outer space. The two-in-one interactive app introduces the backstory of the Space Hamsters and their mission here on Earth, which includes rescuing pets and acting as ambassadors to all animals of the world. Kids are encouraged to explore the story by touching the characters and objects on screen to generate movements and sounds. After reading the story, kids can play Solar System Safari and rescue missing safari animals in outer space by matching planets correctly. In addition, to honor the Space Hamster’s work, Jen X Productions will donate 1% of net proceeds to a variety of animal-based charities, creating a 1% For the Animals charity fund.
