Here’s your chance to name our latest Balloonimals, a duck and a pair of snail twins. That’s right, a very luck “Balloonimaniac” will have their proposed names chosen as the official names for our latest Balloonimals. This fun promotion coincides with the release of an updated Balloonimals app for the iPhone/iPod Touch, as well as the announcement of an HD version of Balloonimals for the iPad to be released soon.
The update for the iPhone/iPod Touch includes a new duck Balloonimal in addition to the snails from our last update, higher quality animations, motion blur and other bug fixes. Furthermore, Balloonimals will be released for the iPad in the next few weeks and will include High-Definition animations, which are only available on the iPad. How cool is that!
If you haven’t seen our popular Balloonimals Page on Facebook where you can name the new Balloonimals, then you are missing a lot. It has been getting plenty of attention since we added colorful images with the names of all Balloonimals, linked it to IDEOToyLab’s Twitter account and added interesting discussion topics, like what you would like to see in a Balloonimals game.
So what are you waiting for? Being a Balloonimaniac is not a spectator sport, it’s about participating in the Balloonimals community, joining the discussion and sharing your love of Balloonimals with your friends, family and little ones.
If you don’t propose a better name for the duck and snail twins, we are just going to call them Eugene, Gertrude and Garth, and no one would want that (unless those are your names, oops!). So head on over to the Balloonimals Page on Facebook, “Like” our page and suggest some better names by clicking on the “Discussions” tab.
