New Super Exciting Feature, and nice to meet you:)

November 2, 2009

Hey there!

My name is Elena and I’m Shidonni’s toy designer. From now on I’ll be updating you on our new and wonderful feature “Shidonni One-of-a-kind“.

As you all know,  Shidonni is creative game for kids aged 5-12, where they draw their own characters, and then play with them in the virtual world of fun, games and all sorts of activities.

But imagine, how great would it be, if your virtual friend could become a real one? Now it can!

With an amazing new feature you can turn your character into a big, lovely, cuddly, soft, real plush toy!

Now we can create for you a custom-made toy made from your drawing ! Place an order, and soon you will be playing with your one-of-a-kind cuddly toy.

Let me show you one of my favorite transformations – from a drawing to a toy.

Tell me what you think about it, I love to get feedback.


custom-made toy!

A new version coming your way

June 11, 2009

Boy o boy we have lots of surprises for you in Shidonni. We are gearing for a new version after a hectic few weeks. Both our RD leader and our co founder and CTO had their first babies over the last few week (did you read our Shidonni twitter account?)   . Congratulations ! . I am not sure when they have managed to get the new features ready for….. (tadadada) next week !

Sometime over the next week we will issue new games, new activities and a special surprise which you’ll be able to see only on Fridays (can you guess what it is ?)

We are preparing some cool activities for your summer break. Shidonni is all about creativity and imagination so some cool events and drawing companions are on the way. We would love to know what games you’d like to see and what activities you want in.

A guide to use Shidonni

May 17, 2009

digitalmaverick created  a great guide for the Shidonni user interface. Here is the slideshow. Share this and enjoy !

What do users say ?

March 31, 2009

Hi Everyone,

As you may have seen, we got loads of new things to show you. 

User Joey Gilles sums it up best:

Just the other day a new game came out along with a new feature

1. the feature is you can now send books 

2.the new game is were you have to match colors to make them go away

and just keep your Eyes peeled for more surprises soon


Yes. We are upgrading the book, so you can share it with Friends. There are new moves and behaviours to the animals and it is becoming a cool place to create more great activities with your animals and worlds.

The “bubble” game is nothing less than addictive. You’ll get the rules quickly and we are sure you’ll have hours of fun setting lines of colors together.

Have Fun !

Shidonni releases a white paper on the empowerment of children’s creativity

March 19, 2009


We just released today a new white paper on the empowerment of children’s creativity in virtual worlds and games.

The white paper, aimed at parents and educators, addresses questions that interest anyone who is working in the field of children’s education, such as, “can fun and engaging games contribute to a child’s mental and creative growth?”

If you would like to download a copy of the white paper, please visit: 

We will keep the link on the right side of our blog links for a while. 

We will be happy to get your comments.

A New Submarine Game!

January 26, 2009

Hi Everyone,

We just found another game planet. It is a great game planet with a submarine game.


All you have to do is manage the submarine and pick up all the dirt that boats drop, to keep the sea clean.


Beware of the bombs !


To get this game, keep playing and drawing and finish the missions.

Good luck in keeping the planet’s seas clean !
