Unprecedented and immersive live-streaming technology gives young children real-time access to their favourite wild animals and their actual behaviours in one of the world’s most advanced and animal-friendly zoos. With fresh exciting action every day, never run out of things to watch again!
Interactive videos help children practice life skills such as impulse control, creativity, reasoning, and problem solving by virtually engaging with their favourite animals in fun mini-games. Children learn to respond to the needs of different animals by breaking down simple problems into parts, developing strategies to solve them, and getting rewarded through positive feedback.
Extensive video playlists follow emotional threads to connect different animals and their behaviours and promote empathy and understanding in an entertaining way. Curated high-quality videos show the connections and behaviours common across species and can help children gain a broader understanding of animal life.

“Virry is a brilliant interactive app for young children. Meerkats, rhinos, giraffes and lions - you couldn’t hope for more endearing creatures. Wonderful shots of the animals in action so kids can really get to know how a lion moves or a giraffe feeds. My daughter enjoyed the top facts and couldn’t wait to tell her friends that a lion eats 50 burgers a day. A great introduction to the natural world which should really engender a passion for many wonderful creatures.”

“At first, I was dubious that having children spend more time on an ipad would help connect them to wild creatures, but interactive apps can bring images of wild animals – in high definition—close up and vivid, while at the same time, not disturbing the animals. The sense of engagement with these animals can heighten children’s commitment to caring for and preserving them. Links to other videos and interesting facts about the animal kingdom lead children on a virtual voyage of discovery. I became a convert. Besides the excitement of seeming to interact with wild creatures such as lions and rhinos, this app builds in important developmental skills.”

“Many of us would like to go on a safari and connect with nature and visit exotic animals. Virry allows us to do this without leaving our homes. The unique App allows us to not only learn about 4 species of exotic animals but also allows us to visit with them up close. Virry can be an excellent tool to expose children to some of the behaviors of lions, giraffes, rhinos and meerkats as well as learn about their dietary habits. It is an excellent tool, which children and their families may enjoy for hours.
I would highly recommend the app.”
“I spent all morning on Virry with my two boys and we love it. We fed a lion and watched a rhino live all from our living room sofa! It’s a safe, educational and utterly compelling way to learn about the animals we love. Get on it, it’s brilliant!”

“Virry is a fun, engaging, and educational application. Unlike many other apps for children, Virry provides an outlet for learning emotional skills such as patience and empathy. It is innovative, unique, and captures the magical world of wild animals in the palm of your hands.”
“Virry really engages with a vast age range, from 3 to 9, and even older. It’s very educational and fun too, I love that you can follow animals live 24 hours a day and view their habits and behaviours. I think it will really inspire a thirst for natural history in young people and that’ s hugely important in my book.”
