You have the power to educate, inspire & empower your child, plus a child in need, through storytelling – a way to teach & play with love

WHIGZ LEARNING

PAPINEE animals, stories and educational content are created using the WHIGZ learning system, which connects content to 5 major themes; World, History, Imagination, Geography and Zoology.

W: WORLD

From Strix’s adventures in London to the top of the Empires State Building with Odo the Deer from New York, children travel the whole world with PAPINEE ANIMALS. Through learning cultures and customs, PAPINEE gives children the world.

H: HISTORY

From Buckingham Palace, the home of the Queen, to Strix’s Tudor-era-inspired, history is embodied in the characters’ design, persona and adventure.

I: IMAGINATION

Through giving kids an outlet and the tools to create their own stories, PAPINEE encourages children to use their own imagination to dream, and broaden their horizons – empowering them to think differently about the world and everything around them.

G: GEOGRAPHY

From the grey London skies, to the heat of the Savannah, children learn geography as they travel through different cities and landscapes together with different PAPINEE animals.

Z: ZOOLOGY

Children learn the latin binomial names of animals through PAPINEE character names like ‘Strix Varia’, for Strix the Owl, and species-specific character traits, like how each animal lives and interacts with his/her habitat.

OUR STORY

Why we do what we do

PAPINEE was created to give all children the world.

It began with a mother whose ill health restricted her ability to travel, and so through storytelling she transformed their living room into the Pyramids of Giza, the Savanna’s of Kenya, Mount Fuji, the Taj Mahal and beyond.

Her imagination opened up fantastical worlds, and through her interactive storytelling she cultivated an appreciation and curiosity for culture, language, geography and history.

Each Sunday she would take her son to visit the local children’s homes and orphanages where the mother would story-tell to the children who needed hope and love the most. Her warmth and creativity made each child feel loved and special, as she empowered and inspired them with ideas. She created a magical word, ‘Papinee’ which meant, ‘the world is yours’ and whispered this to each child as she bid them farewell.

We believe storytelling can change the world. Make your story count, with PAPINEE.
