Cynopsis: Kids!

Good morning. It’s Monday, October 17, 2011, and this is your first early morning Kids briefing.

Cynopsis: Kids! presents a new A Few Questions For…

Answering a few or our questions this week is Rick Richter, President, CEO, and Chairman of Ruckus Media Group (, an independent entertainment company he co-founded a year ago, which creates kid/tween/family-targeted original apps for mobile devices.  Ruckus has released some 20 animated storybooks, including those based on books by noted authors, including Mike Austin, Alan Katz, and David A. Carter, as well as with popular established kid’s brands.  Its most recent app is My Little Pony: Twilight Sparkle, Teacher for a Day, created under a deal with Hasbro.  Ruckus also has an exclusive mobile media deal with Rabbit Ears Library of kid’s stories narrated by celebrities, including Meryl Streep, Robin Williams and Denzel Washington.  Prior to Ruckus, Richter was President and Publisher of the Simon & Schuster Children’s Division (1996-2008).  In 1990 he co-founded Candlewick Press.  Richter was also recently elected to the Connecticut Public Broadcasting Board of Trustees.  An admitted “folk geek” with a degree in music, Richter and friends James Prosek and Joe Dochtermann formed Troutband (

How big a future do you see for kid’s e-books and apps in five years?

I think there is obviously a huge future for the digital delivery of kid’s content of all kinds, including eBooks and Apps. What I also see is a convergence of media  I’m not so sure we’ll be parsing the difference between eBooks, enhanced eBooks, and Apps even in the near future.

Many e-books allow kids to read as a regular book, record their own voice/listen to a narrator reading the book, and play with characters and/or objects central to the story.  I know this may be a dangerous question, but are e-books a better reading experience than a regular printed book?

This might surprise you, but the battery-free, instant-on printed book is a pretty hard thing to improve upon. I don’t think this is an either or choice. The truth is that people will enjoy media when and how meets their needs  historically that arrival new media formats tends to grow the pie. The best storytellers always win, regardless of format.

What are the biggest challenges to a children’s author in creating original stories or adapting their existing books for this medium?

Well, honestly it is getting their new project discovered. If you are a children’s author or animator who is already a brand, you’ll have better luck. This is probably the area we are most focused on, and it has given rise to our partnerships with Hasbro and Scholastic among others.

It seems that there is research everyday telling us that kids of all ages adapt to new technology more easily and quickly than their parents.  And we’ve all seen it in action.  So do you market to kids, parents or both?  How do you market to parents of preschoolers so they actually sample and buy products?

Statistically by the time a child reaches the age of five, he/she is more than twice as likely to know how to manipulate a tablet or smartphone as they are to tie their own shoes. That said, our target market is Moms, and increasingly Dads  Dads are often responsible for the arrival of the device in the household. But Mom is still really the curator of the household.

What is your strategy to get your educational e-books and apps into schools … or accepted by schools as an educational tool?

Partnering. Stay tuned.

You are a musician with an interest in folk music and you’ve said two of your biggest influences are Beethoven and Tiny Tim. Tiny Tim?

What’s not to like about a towering hippy from Washington Heights who became an overnight sensation by singing in nasal falsetto and strumming a ukulele?  Tiny Tim (his first stage name was “Larry Love”) was freakishly fearless. I think he was laughing at us as hard as we were laughing at him. So while I can’t sing very well in falsetto, and I have no natural ukulele ability, his fearlessness intrigued me  even as a little kid. Starting a new company is its own kind of fearlessness.
