BROOKLYN, N.Y., Oct. 13, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Pinna, the only on-demand audio entertainment service developed and curated exclusively for kids 3-12, today announced a collaboration with ZeptoLab, a global entertainment company behind the iconic Cut the Rope game franchise and 'Om Nom Stories' animation series, to launch Om Nom Noms, an interactive podcast for kids focused on solving riddles.
In each episode, listeners will solve short puzzles and riddles with the loveable star of Cut the Rope games and "Om Nom Stories" web series, Om Nom. Kids and parents will try to figure out where Om Nom is hiding based on the sounds that he makes, share treats with him and his friends based on their preferences, determine which instrument went missing from their band, and much more. Five themed episodes roll out each week, and the riddles get progressively harder each day.
Amy Kraft, Director of Development and Children's Programming at Pinna leapt at the challenge of bringing Om Nom into the audio space, stating, "We set out to capture the same leveling up magic of the Cut the Rope games and hilarity of Om Nom animations to give kids a whole new way to play in our bite-size podcast."
"Here at Pinna we pride ourselves on partnering with like-minded entertainment companies such as Zeptolab and we're excited for families to experience the new Om Nom Noms series," said Maggie McGuire, CEO of Pinna. "The same excitement kids have playing Zeptolab games and watching Om Nom Stories comes to the Pinna listening experience with this new, innovative gamified podcast that taps into kids' critical thinking and problem solving skills as they listen and play alongside Om Nom by solving 2-3 minute riddles with the beloved Cut the Rope and Om Nom Stories character. Kids and parents alike will be left captivated, entertained, and maybe even a little puzzled as they giggle and work their way through each episode. It's an absolutely delightful audio game for the whole family!"
"For Zeptolab it is very important to find new ways to reach out to children, to help them find their abilities in a fun way and to encourage their curiosity. We entrusted Pinna with our beloved character Om Nom to let him explore new dimensions. We are happy with the result as they managed to grasp the playful essence of the character and successfully bring it to an audio format. It is a pleasure to work with such a talented team to unlock new challenges with Om Nom", stated Anna Shchur, Producer and Head of Content Distribution at Zeptolab.
