Edutainment 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 related words (Farts, Boogers, Ear Wax, tears etc), turn them into small easy-to-read-good-night-stories (4 minutes is a convenient length for parents) – small ‘funny’ excuses to talk with kids about the body, body functions etc.. And – in a more serious way – to comfort their kids when they hurt themselves… (Scabs, Tears Bruises etc)
All based on our own personal experiences raising up our kids.
- … as dads who finds goodnight stories too long and too boring
- … and as grown-ups finding it very funny to talk about farts, burps & boogers
After one year the concept consisted of 6 finished book titles in 3 languages (English, German & Danish), another 18 sketches & ideas for new titles, trailer to animated versions, a range of merchandise etc., an online platform for body sounds and a lot of other childish stuff
The project was never commercialized because we left Denmark to focus on starting up Tings Kathmandu – our concept for the free individual traveler.
