Stretch the Bunny


Kids – or adults – essentially get the chance to collaborate with NY Times illustrator Christoph Niemann in his new app, Petting Zoo for the iPad. Starting with choices of 21 animals drawn in simple outline form by Niemann, the app allows users to draw, distort, and manipulate each one to their liking. Bunnies shrink and bend, and porcupines grow their prickly exteriors, as Niemann’s work transforms to the touch. It’s a fun, engaging and intuitive use of the iPad’s capabilities.
