Fantorangen is a Norwegian television character known from the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation (NRK), where he has his own program on the children’s channel NRK Super. Fantorangen is a plushie, and with his slightly mischievous personality, he has become one of NRK’s most popular characters for children.
NRK gave Agens the grateful opportunity to breathe life into Fantorangen’s mobile presence. They wanted the app to be the entrypoint to the Fantorangen universe where the target group (2-4-year-olds) can interact with the character through a variety of fun tasks.
The main vision was to make an app that children would love to use. In usability testing we were happy to observe kids laughing so they nearly fell of their chair when playing around with the app. And, others, fully concentrated when doing some of the activities.
At launch the following tasks can be enjoyed in the app:
- Go to the toilet with Fantorangen
- Take a bath with Fantorangen
- Bake with Fantorangen
- Tickle Fantorangen
- Dress Fantorangen
- Brush Fantorangen’s teeth
