A new app to educate kids about nature and animals has been given the endorsement of Animaccord’s Masha.

Animaccord has teamed up with Foundation Digital Labs to launch family app Virry, aimed at educating little ones about how to care and preserve the natural world.


Masha, a curious child and main character of hit animation Masha and the Bear, takes kids on an exploration of wildlife and the animal pals that surround her. The character features in scout appearances and hosts an animal quiz that provides children and adults with unique knowledge about animals and nature.

The special video library section also includes selected episodes of the Masha and the Bear cartoon, each revolving around value of respecting nature, taking care of family and checking in on close frineds.

In the episode Christmas Carol, for instance, old toys remind Masha and young audiences of the importance to appreciate friendship, while in the Game Over, Masha rescues Bear from game addiction.   

Virry+Masha: Learn About Animals is available for download now on the App Store and on Google Play.
