The Gruffalo Spotter 2 UK

The Gruffalo returns to the deep, dark woods with a state of the art augmented reality app!

Children can interact with all The Gruffalo characters in 3D – waving, stomping, flying, dancing and roaring - as they appear magically beside them.

These wonderful moments can be filmed and photographed to cherish later and share on social media with the hashtag #GruffaloSpotters.

Brought to you by Magic Light Pictures and Forestry England, The Gruffalo Spotter 2 app is cutting edge technology developed and animated by the award-winning Nexus Studios.

Based on The Gruffalo, the best-selling picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler, families follow clues on an interactive trail and track signs for their favourite characters.

The self-led trail is packed with fun facts about the forest animals with fantastic activities along the way. Once families have spotted the characters, they can use the app to bring the 3D character animations to life, interact with the characters and film and take photographs of the experience.

Videos and photos are automatically added to the device’s gallery.

Taking family forest walks to new heights, the app mixes new technology with the real world, encouraging children to get exploring, firing their imaginations and giving them a forest experience like no other.

A Gruffalo Spotters 2 UK trail pack will be available to buy on site which includes an activity leaflet full of fun facts and activities, Gruffalo Mask and paws, a nature spotters game, stickers as well as a crayon and pencil.
