Kerpoof’s goal is to become a leading destination site for children through a suite of activities that are enriching as well as entertaining. While mindless fun has its place, creating a place for mindful fun is the mission of Kerpoof. On Kerpoof, users can create art, stories, and animated movies using a simple 3D interface. When users are done, they can save it to their gallery, share it with others, and vote on their favorites.

Kerpoof allows you to easily create pictures, stories, and animated movies. Pictures can be created by first selecting a scene from a variety of different back-drops, and then dragging and dropping objects (thousands of which are available) onto the 3D scene. Stories can be created by linking multiple scenes together and adding text.

Kerpoof also allows animated movies to be created with an intuitive interface. The animation interface has been designed to introduce basic concepts to children in a fun context. Kerpoof makes it very easy to get started but still provides flexibility and control. A rich character library is provided, with each character having numerous, built-in animated actions, many of them humorous. By mixing and matching the built-in animations with custom scripts and dialog, elaborate animated movies are easily created. More advanced capabilities allow children to turn their movies into interactive stories or adventure-style games.

Kerpoof provides various sharing mechanisms to allow users to publish and share their creations and to collaborate with other users on joint efforts.
