“The way children have responded to the Dandelion App has helped us to perfect this original, engaging and beautiful iPad & iPhone experience…”

“We’re thrilled to be supporters of the exciting Dandelion project.

The story is captivating with a powerful message about overcoming life’s hurdles. Creativity and imagination are at the core of self expression.

This message is central to the story, central to our beliefs and is alive in our preschools and in everything we do.”

Concept To Creation

“Dandelion was written and developed to encourage children to use their imagination to fend off bullying and to create a story that would communicate the message globally.”

it's all in the detail

Each scene has been pencil drawn, scanned, painted digitally, spliced and animated to bring a totally unique look and feel to Benjamin’s world.

Benjamin Drawing

The little boy that could.... Benjamin begins his journey as a slight figure whose confidence slouches from the weight of the world on his shoulders. His stature grows amongst a patch of dandelions that help him become strong.

Benjamin has been drawn as a blank canvas so that the reader can place themselves in his shoes during the story.


The ‘School for the Misguided’ is a place that echoes classic Grimm’s Fairy Tales and is proudly ‘Burtonesque’ in its design.

The environment and the theme

Each page is navigated by interacting with a retro instamatic viewfinder mechanism.
