Posted

Join Jolly Blast Productions, along with NFL All-Pro Tony Gonzalez as “Coach Tony,” as they teach Jolly and Holly Blast, and their many outer space friends, the fundamentals of soccer.

Children and parents can follow along in the immersive, visually stunning super-galactic world, where soccer becomes the newest way to combat boredom and inactivity.

The Jolly Blast adventure series features an animated version of Gonzalez, five-time NFL All-Pro tight end for the Kansas City Chiefs and Atlanta Falcons,who as “Coach Tony” will encourage children to get active and spark a lifelong love for games and movement.

“Jolly Blast’s mission is to teach kids and parents that participating in sports is a fun way to build self-esteem, get some exercise as well as learn teamwork and sportsmanship,” said Gonzalez, who is the second leading receiver in NFL history. “Whether it’s an organized sport, a school playground activity or a made-up backyard game, kids who are physically active develop solid health and fitness practices that enrich them for a lifetime.”

In Jolly Blast: Soccer, the story follows Jolly and Holly who, along with their robot friend, Tom, are on a mission to save their home world, “Planet Blah,” from endless boredom by finding new Earth activities to play, such as soccer. With Jolly Blast’s first sports adventure app, children will get up and move while learning basic soccer rules, stretches, moves, drills and terminology. Kids will also gain life lessons in an easy, entertaining environment.

“We created Jolly Blast: Soccer to introduce kids and their families to one of the coolest sports on Planet Earth in a whole new way – through a unique blend of story, character and information,”said Jeffrey Eagle, Chairman and CEO of Jolly Blast Productions, an integrated media and entertainment company that advocates movement, youth sports and healthy activities for young children. “Hopefully, kids who use this app will have an immediate and better grasp of the game of soccer, but more importantly, they also realize that learning to play something new can positively impact their health, their life, even their planet.”

Children bring the story to life on the iPad by utilizing the interactive touch screen to trigger eye-catching graphics and giggle-inducing sounds. Kids become friends with the Jolly Blast crew and follow them on a soccer journey, with more sports adventures to come.

Jolly Blast: Soccer is available for $1.99 in the App Store.
