My name is Jan Essig. Besides my activities as a dad, I work as a freelance illustrator and game developer in Germany. I started developing apps about two years ago with the intention to create apps that are tailored for kids. At that time I asked my own kids (3+5 years old) what they liked best. I also watched them playing with other apps and noticed several things I did not like at all. Then I started making one app containing all of their favorite games, activities and animals and cut out things like ads, IAPs, unprotected buttons, inconsistent navigation etc. Today I have three "playground" games on the App Store.
