goodbeans proudly presents „Grolly’s Memory: Learning & Matching Animals for Kids”, an engaging memory game especially developed for young pre-schoolers. The lovingly designed graphics and animations are ideal for their little hands and offer all kids over 2 years the perfect introduction into the memory games world.
Accompanied by the cute monster Grolly, the well beloved hero from goodbeans’ successful kids app “Grolly’s Animal Adventures”, your child can train and sharpen their memory in a fun way while learning and matching exotic animals.
In a stimulating and fun challenge, children search for the right pair of animals by tapping the cards one by one. Every time a matching pair of cards is discovered, a lively animation of the found animal is shown and the names of the animals will be learned by listening and seeing.
Simple rules and an intuitive interface make the educational app easy to use and fun to play. Translated into both German and English, there are three different levels of difficulty to cater for the needs of each and every child.
„Grolly’s Memory: Learning & Matching Animals for Kids” currently has three available chapters: Asia, Africa and North Pole. Every chapter has a high level of re-playability with there being more than 15 different animals with animations in each one. The Asia chapter is available now for free in the App Store.

TED (Technology Entertainment and Design) is a global nonprofit organization, focusing on “ideas worth spreading” through conferences.The intention is to find and support people with outstanding ideas and new projects, and to give these people a voice at the TEDxBerlin.
As each speaker is only given a limited 18 minutes to present their ideas in the most innovative and engaging way possible, the speaker must present their thoughts clearly in an organized manner, with strong points for others to take away. Talks are available for free online viewing under a Creative Commons license, at TED.com.
On the 21st of November, last year’s TEDxBerlin took place with “High Energy” as the focus of talks. Our CEO Verena took part with her talk “Don´t be the boiled frog – jump”.
Verena spoke about companies getting too comfortable in their comfort zone that they start to lose their alertness and energy to constantly reinvent themselves. The companies behave like the frog in the warm water that misses the point to jump out of the pot before the water starts boiling. She explained that companies need to continually question and re-invent themselves in order to adapt to changing market conditions and create new needs. Anyone who reacts slowly, or in a pretentious or arrogant manner and does not leave their comfort zone, will not succeed. This is due to the fact that being successful in the past or in the present is no guarantee of future success.
At Young Internet, we have used brainstorming, innovation-days, open communication and lessons learned, to turn a browser into a mobile company. Verena shared 5 lessons learnt from Young Internet on how the company got themselves out of the hot water and how other companies can do the same.
The topic came naturally to Verena who strongly believes that the companies that will be successful in the future, are those that do not wait until the water boils but that stay entrepreneurial, stay hungry and actually jump to reach the next level.
Just in time for Christmas, we have a new chapter of our successful app “Grolly’s Animal Adventures”.

Puffins, polar bears, and arctic hare Muschosochse are just some of the animals that will surprise the whole family with their typical sounds and movements.
In keeping with previous chapters, more information about the animals and the landscapes are reflected in Golly’s encyclopedia.

When the new chapter is purchased, the first chapter (Asia) is automatically included for free.

In the weeks before Christmas many aid organizations are competing with each other. Those who decide to give something to the needy of this world have a hard time choosing between so many fundraising organizations.
With the “wish list” concept, Save the Children has launched a campaign which stands out from the others by being very innovative. The online-shop from Save the Children is a virtual wish list. Here you can find unusual gifts that are making children around the world happy, and who desperately need help.
This is how it works:
First, one selects and purchases a gift from the Gift Store of Save the Children. You will find something for each pocket-size and every budget: from a week’s food ration of a couple of chickens to a yak or even a classroom. The recipient gets a card with a gift receipt.
Gift for example a weekly ration of peanut paste, this means a malnourished child is supplied with the necessary nutrients. Or endow chickens – a gift with lasting value because they give a family the opportunity to take care of themselves for a long term.

Yesterday it was once again high time to get everyone’s fingers away from their computer keyboards, leave the office in the Winsstraße and make Berlin unsafe!
Another spectacular Young Internet team event should find its way into the history books! Would you think bowling, Frisbee and canoeing go together? In PLAY Berlin near Alexanderplatz, 50 slobs have proved you wrong.
The first Wii Championship is definitively worth exhibiting and ended without any injured victims. After three hours of fierce fidgeting and daredevil show performances the winners were announced:
First Place: Team Woody: Jördis, James, Michael and Kinga
Second Place: Team Helmet: Antje, Bjorn Kyle, Stefan
Third Place: Team Napasapa: Joel, Louis, Maaria, Rut
We celebrated both the winners and the losers in the „Alte Kantine“ in the “Kulturbrauerei” until the early hours of the morning!
We look forward to the next time Young Internet rocks Berlin.
…with competent assistance!
