A New Way to Read Children's Books

At the tender age of one, my daughter is starting to show great interest in reading. It’s a task she does every chance she gets—whether its after lunch, or during bedtime, Little Lady loves the whole concept of a story and the pictures that go along with it.

That’s why I was so excited when Crayon Crunch approached me with their idea for children’s books. Their philosophy was simple: every kid deserves an adventure. So, with the brilliant minds of Tim Osterbuhr, Kai Schmittat and Friederike Geiken , they were able to launch a concept for a customizable printed children’s book unlike any other.

While some companies limit character customization to just a child’s name, Crayon Crunch’s concept goes a bit further, allowing all features of the main character to be completely customizable. That means your child can quite literally place themselves in his/her very own fictional adventure!

From hair color, to eyes, clothing, skin tone, Crayon Crunch’s marries innovative technology with traditional picture books, through its intricate and unique process. Through an image matching algorithm, readers will able to match the exact features of their child with a click of a button and flick of a mouse. In fact, their in-house technology even allows options for special needs such as glasses and wheelchair, and limb differences. These further highlights their philosophy of EVERY child deserves an adventure. In addition, it also promotes, not only the importance of reading, but also a much-needed diversity in modern children’s literature.

The plot is a mixture of excitement and endearment. In it, your child finds a box with a lock shaped with his first initial. To unlock it, he/she must go on a quest to find the key that matches the lock. Along the way, he meets more characters to help on his quest. The contents of the box won’t be visible until the very end: when the main character finds a letter written to him/her from one of the family members who’s purchased the book.

With all this innovation and promise of a new era in children's book printing, I'm proud to announce that Crayon Crunch has launched a Kickstarter to promote and fund their venture, and your support is very much appreciated. Your child's well-deserved adventure awaits!
