Say hello to Blinkies, easy-to-use animations that make children’s drawings more magical.

Just play one of the animations on your phone or tablet, place a child’s drawing over the screen and watch it come to life. Dim the lights for extra magic. Using Blinkies is as easy as using YouTube, but if you run into any problems, these two notes could help:

– Blinkies videos were made for mobile devices but work on any screen. If you’re on mobile, keep the device in portrait view.

– If you’re using the latest version of the YouTube app, click the ‘expand’ button after hitting Play. Don’t rotate your phone on its side as it will shrink the animation.

In 2012 four friends got together to make a personalised book, better than had ever been made before. They worked on it in their spare time, as a pet project. Late nights! Understanding families! Pretending to work on work stuff at work, when they weren’t! Eventually it was finished, stories, illustrations, code, site, print house, everything. They launched it. Word got around. People bought it, and said nice things about it. And they thought, Hang on. Hang on a second. This could be BIG. They got investment. They totally won on Dragons’ Den. They found an office, persuaded other marvellous people to join them, sold lots and lots of books… And made many, many magical bedtimes.
