Our story

Big Ice Cream is a digital studio that produces apps for pre-school and early primary school aged children on iPhone, iPad, iPod Touch.

Founded in 2012 by designer and producer team Gabrielle Banks and Caroline Kinny-Lewis, friends, mothers to young children and passionate about quality children’s content.

We believe that learning isn’t just ABCs and 123s. It’s just as important that children learn to communicate with and understand others. Our games are designed to reflect the diverse social and community experiences of all young children.

Our games encourage learning through investigation, role-play and fun.

I like digital toys that mirror classic good old-fashioned open-ended play. If someone were to rummage through the archives and dig out my most loved childhood items they would find Donkey Kong Game and Watch (which I borrowed from my brother), swimming goggles, a recipe book, and a few snow domes.

As a hippy's kid I grew up with no screens (boo hoo) and concocted elaborate lies around TV, videos and computer games in-order to be "in" with my peers...perhaps this is why I am in this line of work. I am motivated by a love of technology, design and an abiding sense of fun. I love content which does not talk down to kids, encourages creativity and provides the opportunity to explore themes relevant to their world.
