Commercial Universe for kids
The Little Body Factory started out in 2007 as a for fun project by Tommy Linnebjerg (idea, visuals) & Thomas Tingstrup (idea, strategy, text) and ended up becoming an entertainment/edutainment Universe for Kids (up to 5 years) and their parents.
The core idea is to take all the funny/naughty body words (Farts, Bogeys, Ear Wax etc), turn them into small easy-to-read-good-night-stories (4 minutes is a convenient length for parents) and use them as excuses to talk with their kids about the body, body functions etc. in a more serious way and/or to use to comfort their kids when the fall and hurt themselves.
All based on our real life experiences
- As dads finding goodnight stories too long and too boring
- As grown-ups finding it very funny to talk about farts
After one year the concept consisted of 6 finished book titles in 3 languages (English, German & Danish), another 18 sketches ideas to new titles, trailer to animated versions, a range of merchandise etc., an online platform where
The project was never commercialized because we left Denmark to focus on Tings – our concept for the free individual traveler.
