We're excited to announce our latest project; a collaboration with bar and restaurant Alexander’s- based in Skipton, North Yorkshire and a branch of our parent company, Peel Entertainment Group- to develop an Augmented Reality (AR) colouring experience for children.

Alexander’s has typically used traditional colouring sheets to provide a fun activity for children while they are waiting for their meal- as many family friendly restaurants do- however our revolutionary app means that after children have coloured in the two fantasy characters on our special ‘Enchanterwood’ colouring sheets, they can use Alexander’s in-house iPads to activate the content, converting their creations into 3D animations and bring them ‘to life’.

Here at Peel Interactive, we aim to make all of our projects ‘Emotionally Transforming Digital Experiences’ and believe that this twist on the traditional colouring in sheet does just that; by keeping children’s minds engaged, active and curious and encouraging creativity and discussion with other family members and friends.
The app also includes a digital game featuring the same characters.
Said Susannah Daley, Managing Director of Peel Entertainment, “Peel Interactive is well known for its AR digital experiences, which include everything from an animated ‘horrible histories’ style AR installation at the Parliamentary Education Centre, which brings King Charles I and Queen Victoria 'back to life', to our recently launched ‘Giant Adventure’ at The Alnwick Garden; an AR garden trail which enables children to seek out the giant, all his giant belongings and his giant woodland friends. Utilising our skills to create this children’s colouring app for Alexander’s makes perfect sense as it enhances our already extensive family friendly offer.”

The AR app and digital game launched on Thursday 9th August, so if you’re in the local area, be sure to make a trip to Alexander’s and journey into ‘Enchanterwood’.
