Here we are, mid-way through January. Never mind the dark, the cold, or the “I’ll just have a club soda, thanks” comments you hear from everyone keeping it “dry” this month. Now is the time to reflect on 2019, feel proud about how far you’ve come, and get really amped up about 2020!
In the spirit of celebrating the past year (and being excited for what’s to come), we wanted to share a round up of some cool stuff we got up to in the past year…
We won a bunch of awards!
The awards shelf in our office got more crowded (yay!), but the coolest has to be when Estelle, our co-founder and COO won the “Most Innovative Woman in Educational App Development 2019” award. Here she is doing a happy dance:
We’re also stoked to have been nominated for a Kidscreen award in the best kids-only streaming service category! Watch this space (we’re heading to Miami next month to hear the Kidscreen results). Fingers and toes crossed!
We launched a shiny new app!
This news is as exciting as ten birthday parties at once. Except better. We made some incredible updates to make sure we’re the best we can be. The result was an amazing refreshed app, bursting with new features. We’re faster, smarter and more exciting! And the best part is that we’re just getting started. We’re committed to continually make improvements so that Azoomee can be as awesome as the kids who love it.
We Joined Forces with Another Cool Company
What’s better than one awesome company? Two awesome companies! We’ve merged with Da Vinci Media to create a global kids’ media group. This means we now have an even bigger library of games and videos to offer more than 45 million subscribers via connected TVs, linear channels, and mobile apps in over 150 countries. In a nutshell, you’ll get lots more fun, anywhere and everywhere!
We Gobbled Up Fondue
Cheese. Melted cheese. Ooey, gooey, yummy, scrummy cheeeeeeeeeeese. Nothing like a fondue party to really kick off the holidays! We feasted on all sorts of melty goodness right before Christmas. What better way to prepare for holiday feasting than… a holiday feast? Yum.
We Ditched Resolutions
We gave up guilt and grabbed some gratitude instead. It’s usually around about this time of year that we all begin to flag on the resolutions we made on New Year’s Day. So instead of setting ourselves up for failure, we decided to opt for treasuring the year ahead. In the last weeks of December, we made Rememberlutions Jars (think of them as gratitude journals, except in jar form). Anytime something cool happens, even a little thing that makes us smile, we’ll jot it down on a piece of paper and pop it into the jar. Then at the end of the year, we’ll have an easy way to cherish all the memories that made the year awesome! Check out our blog post if you’d like to give it a try: How Rememberlutions Will Save Your Year.
We hope your 2019 was great too. It’s been a rad year, and we’re excited to get into the full swing of 2020!
