Developing original home entertainment products for kids
Unlike picture books, the interactive book empowers children by reinforcing their experience, thereby strengthening their enjoyment of the book’s content.
The interactive book enables the child to take a real part in the story, and to experience whatever the characters in the book are experiencing.
Motti always examines his interactive book ideas according to four parameters:
- Is it an original, unique, and special idea? (Will it create a “Wow!” effect? Will the child be excited about it?)
- Does the book provide a real answer to a real need of the child?
- Is the book suitable for the age group of the target audience?
- Can it technically be produced and sold at an affordable price?
After developing the concept
- The ideas are always examined by children’s psychological and behavioral experts.
- Then, a sample book is developed and examined by children’s focus groups in kindergartens.

Big, Medium, Small
Where’s That Monster?
A fun book, filled with suspense, and accompanied by luminous illustrations, immediately pulls young readers into a nighttime adventure in which they use a flashlight to illuminate all the dark corners in the young hero’s bedroom, helping him dispel his fear of what is behind the shadows and shapes that lurk there.
An entertaining story about a little boy who becomes a big boy, and then a father, and then a grandfather, but who still cannot bring himself to give up his pacifier. Two-year-old Theo can never be seen without his pacifier. Mom says it’s all right for now, but Theodore grows older and is in no hurry to part with his pacifier, not even when he becomes a grandfather!
The book comes with a real pacifier, allowing children to take an active part in the story.
School for Teddies
Children’s ability to identify shapes is necessary for the development
of spatial and geometric thinking.

In this way, children become active participants in the story of this entertaining book. Additional titles in the School for Teddies series (Letters and Numbers) are in the advanced planning stages.
