“The launch of the site allows us to further expand on our goal, which is to allow aspiring storytellers, filmmakers, voice over talents and animators, to be discovered for their talents,” says Trigger Happy CEO Shona Grundy. “We want our users to share their creations with a community of like-minded individuals in a way that is easy, social and fun for them.”
In addition, version 1.4 of the app will include a new and improved digital “toy store” that will include bundle deals that will provide users with convenience and/or value when purchasing from their favorite brands.
