About Big City Animals

Big City Animals was founded in 2014 by Lisa Chipetine, a technology consultant who has traveled the world.  The Big City Animals™  children’s interactive, educational travel apps provide a unique opportunity for a parent, grandparent, or any adult to bond with their child by creating “conversation starters” derived from the city’s highlights, such as landmarks and attractions.  These city highlights, through touch technology, contain pop-ups that provide additional information, either historical or fun facts.  Kids will learn vocabulary, geography, and history all in one app.  The apps provide read-to-me or read-to-myself options, and, as an added bonus, every Big City Animals™ app ends with the “Big City Animals™ Sing-Along Theme Song” which provides kids with an extra bit of quality musical entertainment. The Big City Animal's store, has products for children, pets and adults of all ages!
