Helping Preschoolers Develop Cognitive Learning Skills 

Invest in Little Starship Productions

"As a parent, caregiver or educator, you may have noticed it has become increasingly difficult to navigate through all the new media content that is readily available for you and your children. Our aim is to provide you with a single recognizable source for safe, engaging, educational multimedia content.

  

At Little Starship Productions we are developing and producing multi-platform interactive software apps, and video content that helps preschool age children develop fundamental cognitive skills during early childhood.


We are parents, artists, and educators with over 50 combined years of experience creating interactive multimedia. In addition to creating original content, we are continually searching the Internet for the type content we love, that meets the standards we apply to our work and that we can't wait to share with our children, our families and you. 


The featured or most popular apps on an app store may be very different from those highlighted by review sites. Most popular apps may not be as highly rated as other apps for any number of reasons—so parents need to look beyond the lists of top apps in the storefronts.


In addition to creating original iOS and Android mobile apps and videos, we are in the process of creating a Website to provide you with a single location to access this quality content for your children that will help stimulate their imagination and foster their love for learning. Visit our site, LittleStarship.net for our latest recommendations for the best interactive content available for preschoolers.


Rest assured; you can trust that when you see the Little Starship logo, what follows will be safe for your children, engaging, educational and fun for you and your family."

What We've Accomplished So Far

The first three educational mobile apps for preschoolers from Little Starship Productions are now available for free download on the App Store and on Google Play. Inspired by the classic tune, 'Alligator in the Elevator' by children's singer/songwriter Rick Charette, each app contains an animated cartoon video for the song along with fun learning activities. All three apps have been receiving 5-star reviews from customers and app review sites. For more info visit our website.


The Reviews are in...

“Alligator in the Elevator Matching Game is a highly entertaining app perfect for helping tolddlers and preschoolers build critical memory kills and language skills, as well as for encouraging language play that will improve later reading and writing skills…


This app is one of a set of three marvelously appropriate toddler/preschooler pastimes. The other two apps in this series from developed Little Starship Productions include Alligator in the Elevator Jigsaw Puzzles, and Alligator in the Elevator 123 and are definitely worth a look if you have children in this age group.”

Rick Charette

"Krishna has a keen understanding of early childhood. His work will certainly entertain children and stimulate their learning as well.“

-- Rick Charette | Singer/Songwriter/Educator

Rick Charette has recorded 11 CDs and 3 DVDs. Over the past 30 years his catchy songs like “I Love Mud”, "Alligator in the Elevator” and “Bubble Gum” have become favorites of several generations of parents and children alike throughout the US. Rick Charette and Pine Point Record Co. have granted us permission to use Rick’s catalog of songs including "Alligator in the Elevator”, “I Love Mud”, and “Bubble Gum” to create original interactive multimedia properties. 

What Makes Our Products Different

We follow guidelines and suggestions for children's app development published by trusted and respected organizations such as The Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop, Fred Rogers Center for Early Learning & Children's Media, CommonSenseMedia.org and KIDMAP (Kids' Inclusive and Diverse Media Action Project) when developing our apps for preschoolers.

The featured or most popular apps on an app store may be very different from those highlighted by review sites. Most popular apps may not be as highly rated as other apps for any number of reasons—so we encourage parents to look beyond the lists of top apps in the storefronts.

What Sets Little Starship® Apart

We provide a specific age range or developmental stage in the descriptions of all our Little Starship®  apps.

Parents are a child’s first and most important teachers. Our preschool apps are designed so that they can be co-played by either a parent and child or two children together.

We involve child development experts in the production of our apps as well as providing our audience with the guiding curriculum or educational theories behind our apps.

We encourage your feedback. At Little Starship Productions we involve parents at every stage of development. Parents and educators have the power to influence design! 

And more...

Market and Industry

Commenting on the Global Education Apps Market 2015-2019* research report, an analyst said: "Game-based learning is designed to impart knowledge on a specific subject matter with the help of interactive measures, leading to set defined outcomes. It allows users to play the game multiple times, allowing them to master the game, which consequently results in better understanding of the topic." 


Analysts forecast the global education gamification market to grow at a CAGR of 64.34% over the period 2014-2019. The report, Global Education Gamification Market 2015-2019*, has been prepared based on an in-depth market analysis with inputs from industry experts.

This report covers Americas, APAC, and EMEA; it also covers the landscape of the market and its growth prospects in the coming years. It includes a discussion of the key vendors operating in this market.

To calculate the market size, this report considers revenue generated from the sales of gamification solutions for end-users including K-12 schools and Higher education institutes. 


Today millions of Educational apps are available in the market and this is one of the most rapidly growing industries these days. But the question is why education sector is so popular compared to all other inductors. 


The reason is very simple kids now learn to “swipe” before they can tie their shoes. Also learning from apps can be more interactive and fun than the traditional way of education. Parents can also participate with their active involvement in learning process though app learning.   

Significant Market Findings

A quick look at the number of "Education" apps on the App Store today lists 80,000 apps in the category. 


Google Play lists approx. 213,000 in the category, with 5% (about 10000) having more than 50,000 downloads. About 27,000, or 13%, are paid apps, which is a good number compared to other categories. The average price, just under $5, is also one of the higher-priced categories.


Paid apps for the Education category can sometimes garner higher prices than games do since the payoff is knowledge and learning – parents are likely to invest in their children's education more often than in their entertainment, especially if the product purports to provide a bit of both.
