The Pearl Dream Inc. team, Brian Asingia (CEO), Franco Abott (CTO) and Lisa Nisbaum (CMO), recently launched the DreamAfrica app for iOS and Android devices, which allows kids to read and watch the illustrated and animated stories online and offline; and play interactive games based on the stories. The app is $1.99 per month with weekly updates.

There seems to be a real market for African animation stories out there evident from Tinga Tinga Tales, backed by Disney and ABC and other African media houses.
