Classic tales with an innovative approach: 5 new books in AR

The future of reading is close.

Live Animations and Little Hippo Books have released 5 new classic children's fairy tales in augmented reality. You can already find the books on the shelves of the largest US network of Walmart stores and on

Each book contains more than half of the animated pages (interactive 3D animations) — both the adult and the small reader can interact with the characters: play with them, paint them in real time, look for hidden objects, create music, etc.

Books with AR also perform an educational function. The child learns to read and quickly absorb new information. Thus, with the help of innovation, the reading process becomes more efficient and fun.

Everything works simply: you need to download a free application Hippo Magic to your phone, and then point the camera at the pages of the books. The application, in addition to a deep immersion in the text — a fairy tale, allows the reader to do selfies and video with the characters as mementos, and also immediately share them with their friends on social networks.


Cinderella and her fairy godmother come to life with the help of augmented reality right from the pages of a children's fairy tale. The reader can choose in real time the color of the dress Cinderella is wearing for a dance with the prince. On the interactive pages of the book objects are hidden, so the user needs to find them during the game. For example, how many shoes can you find looking for Cinderella?
