About AJ & the Flip Flops

What does every parent who loves music wish for? Children’s music that they can actually enjoy listening to with their kids! AJ and the Flip Flops is an omnichannel children’s entertainment experience targeting early childhood development through “learning-based” music, Internet, mobile applications, books and television. This unique experience capitalizes on life lessons from a father to child perspective bringing a fun, quirky, interactive platform to actively immerse children in learning precognitive and cognitive skills, large motor skills, health, nutrition, and elementary life lessons through song, dance, art, reading and math in extremely educational, upbeat and playful venues. In addition, it makes learning fun!

Objective
