About the Gruffalo Spotter Trails
The Gruffalo Spotter was designed for exclusive use at 26 Forestry Commission sites across England.

Brought to you by Magic Light Pictures and Forestry Commission England, The Gruffalo Spotter app is the first development of its kind. Families followed clues on an interactive trail and track signs of their favourite characters based on The Gruffalo, best-selling picture book written by Julia Donaldson and illustrated by Axel Scheffler.

The self-led trail was packed with fun facts about forest animals with fantastic activities along the way. Once families spotted the characters, they used the app to bring the 3D character animation to life and take photos alongside them.

Photos are automatically added to the device’s gallery, from where it can be shared via social media with the hashtag #GruffaloSpotters.

Taking family forest walks to new heights, the app mixes technology with the real world, encouraging children to get exploring, firing their imaginations and enabling them to have an all-new forest experience.

The Gruffalo Spotter’s app has been developed and animated by Nexus Studios and is available for free with no in-app purchases.

**NOTE. Please ensure you've backed up the photos taken using the app before deleting it. If you have any queries please contact before doing so.**
