Give any 5 year old a pen and a paper and see them create their own pets, friends, worlds, galaxies and stories. Shidonni is mimicking just that. In Shidonni, kids get their own online “pen and paper” to sketch animals. The moment they do, their creations come to life ‘virtually’. Kids can then create worlds for their animals, feed them, play with them and share them with their friends.
