Seedling Debuts New Comic Strip App

Los Angeles-based toy and kids' activity provider Seedling said Thursday that it has launched a new product, a new mobile app called Seedling Comic Studio, which helps kids create their own original comic strips. Seedling said the product is its first, all-digital product. The app is free and runs on iOS. According to Seedling, the new app will tie into its existing line of physical products, and also will include in-app purchases for stickers and backgrounds to add to those comics. Seedling is best known for its large selection of creative activity kits for kids. The company is led by Phoebe Hayman, and is venture backed by Upfront Ventures.
