Saffron from the SnapVille Family

SnapVille Family was created by Kids Share Workshops and founder Kristina Applegate in January 2019. She wanted to find a way to reach children through emoji characters that have facial recognition, allowing one to animate their own character. Kristina saw through her own children, how simple character interactive exchanges with friends and family had a very healing ability and, bringing the child and parent together in the new world!

Kristina’s motivation came from trying to communicate with her 14-year-old son and 16-year-old daughter. She quickly created Saffron from the SnapVille Family who is a Saugy, not a hot dog. And her entrepreneurial spirit saw a way to communicate with her children!

Many parents who are not tech savvy, can find it difficult to communicate with their children due to the gap of communication growing with technology. Currently, Kristina is using SnapChat characters to hopefully change that. The goal is to make it fun for parents and children to share short stories as a means of feeling better and happier.
