What’s green, furry and has six legs (or are they arms)?

It’s Woogie!

We’ve teamed up with Iceberg Kids, the world’s largest publisher of children’s apps, to create a fun new product for your kids. Woogie is the first iPhone and iPod touch case made specifically for children, it’s designed to protect your device from the drops, dings, and bumps that are sure to happen at your kid’s hands. I can speak to this personally.

Woogie includes a free Iceberg Kids Sesame Street eBook sampler app, featuring “Elmo’s Birthday,””Big Bird’s Nest,” and “The Fix-It Shop.” The interactive app allows your wee ones to follow along with their favorite Sesame Street characters. The app reads the story out loud and you can even record your own voice. There are also 150 additional titles, all Woogie-ready and available from the App Store.

You and your kids are going to love our furry, green friend!

    Surrounded by lush green vegetation, the pond was alive with frogs, tadpoles, and soft little creatures called Woogies. The Woogies were…

  • Pixelpants

    Suddenly, Ben, Jasper and the ducks stopped. They heard some beautiful music coming from behind a tall fence beside them. A long, tall fence entirely covered with ivy except for a spot with a tiny door. As luck would have it, that tiny, two-foot tall door was ajar. Ben looked at Jasper and the ducks and said…

    Quack, a quack quack quack and they all went inside. They looked all around and realized that they were in a yard that was bigger on the inside than it looked on the outside. Then they looked up and noticed the sky was purple and there were two moons overhead. They apparently entered into…

    The woods behind Ben’s house provided many adventures for he and Jasper. One day the trees in the woods became vending machines. Each tree dispensed it’s personal brand of stuff.

  • Freeappsonly

    the boy and his dog went inside the jungle in Disney’s Animal Kingdom!

  • Stephen O’Connor

    Ben was falling in and out of sleep, dreaming of disney vacations of years past, the massive array of vending machines he has seen on a vacation in Japan; then another lick from Jasper on Bens face and he wolk properly this time. Why did I have such a crazy dream he thought to himself…

  • http://www.roadstories.ca Boomergirl

    He and Jasper had gone on an adventure that

  • Anonymous

    Not because Ben held Jasper by a leash or otherwise tethered to him; but in the way that one heart knows when it truly belongs to another.

  • golfgirl23

    Sugar? No, that can’t be it. Red food dye? Nope. High fructose corn syrup? That may be it. I better not tell Mom. Jasper sat at Ben’s feet nodding.

  • ravan

    Nodding… Nodding.. Nodding… Oh the nightmares continued.

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    Suddenly, there was a knock on the door! Jasper ran to see who it was…

  • Mclemorem

    It was a strange little creature who was soft and fun. Hi, my name is Woogie. Woogie asked Jasper if he could come out and play. But instead of using a mouth. Woogie talked using movie quotes on his video screen. Woogie would sit for hours showing movies to Jasper and his friends.

  • http://twitter.com/thismiki Miki Ballard

    and when Jasper was sleepy and his eyelids were heavy, Woogie was there for Jasper to sleep on.

  • Seth Berrier

    Ben walked by the fence at the end of his lawn,
    Then he called for Jasper to hurry along!

    The sun shown down on the fence and the lawn,
    But not on Jasper, JASPER WAS GONE!

  • golfgirl23

    Ben looked and looked, but found no Jasper. Then he saw something behind a dumpster.

  • Steve Sullivan

    It was Jasper and a strange object! “Jasper, what is that?”

  • flowerpower93

    it was the woogie! Ben asked the woogie why he was behind the dumpster and it said,

  • Ken Loomis

    The woogie responded by telling Ben it was too much fun to be with,rather than being tossed into the dumpster.

  • http://theokester.blogspot.com Okie

    Ben, being a creative and intelligent boy, wasn’t shocked at all by the talking Woogie (for he knew that some things talked to children that wouldn’t talk to adults), and he asked the Woogie to take him on an adventure.

  • http://twitter.com/gavoweb gavin richardson

    Woogie said, “with the power of metaphysics and Apple® I shall introduce you to the far universe of Dave. One rule on being in the universe of Dave, you must end every sentence with the word ‘Eh.’ Gotta it Ben? Eh.”

  • Scott Barney

    The Woogie gave Ben a bemused look, then said “I was going to ask you the same thing! You are a boy that seems to always be on an adventure, with Jasper at your side!” Laughing, the Woggie hopped on Jasper’s back and they all set out towards the abandoned soap factory, to see what adventures they could find.

  • Marco

    The soap factory looked mysterious and menacing and Ben slowed down as they approached the entrance, but suddenly Jasper picked up a scent and started barking and running wildly towards the main entrance…

  • Chris

    As they approached the door, they saw an odd glow peeking through the crack between the door and the floor…

  • Kim M

    Ben slipped forward quietly and found the door just a bit ajar. He placed his hand on it to quietly push it open a bit, and realized the door was also warm. Cautiously Ben peeked in and saw …

  • EliBeth

    On The table next to a pile of soap, Ben started wondering if he should eat The peanut butter jelly sandwich

  • http://www.yourappletrainer.com/ Chris Peters

    Now Ben prefers all natural peanut butter paired with raspberry jam. So Ben, picks up the sandwich and gives it a good sniff. Ben can tell this is inferior sugar filled peanut butter. He’d rather eat the soap.

    Ben is so very hungry…

  • Lindsey

    Ben forgot all about his hunger when the door slammed shut behind them.

  • Randallmartin

    Ben then hears his dog Jasper eating on his PB&J and decides to go investigate

  • BHaynes

    When suddenly the lights came on and Ben saw ten more Woogies standing in an overhead loft. Script flashed across each of their screens, reading “We knew the PBJ would bring you here”.

  • Brtalley5

    Although it made him jump, Ben could tell that the Woogies meant no harm, so he began to follow Jasper , who was already halfway up the stairs.

  • Anonymous

    Even though he had the knowledge of the Woogies kindness he still didn’t understand what made him follow Jasper. As he didn’t have a clue what he would find up there.

  • http://www.griffintechnology.com/connect Dave Delaney

    “Woogies for me and all my friends! Come on, Jasper, let’s get these back home.” And then Ben winked at Jasper: “You can bring the sandwich.”

    The End.
