yummico is a new kind of children’s media company.  We’re media veterans and parents who want to make sticky, entertaining media for kids that’s also safe and value added.  Seeing our own kids interacting with media on mobile devices as well as watching it on TV, we decided to start a company which made media we could trust, that our kids would love. Thus, yummico was born.  We call it delicious media that’s good and good for you.  And we want to be your ally in this rapidly changing media landscape.
