Osmo Unveils Super Studio: Mickey Mouse’s First Reflective Animation Experience, Fusing Magical Storytelling with Hands- On Play
With Osmo Super Studio, kids physically draw Mickey and his iconic pals, who then come to life on screen via Osmo’s Reflective AI.
Classroom walls and refrigerators are home to some of the most beloved drawings in the world and stand as crayon and scented-marker tributes to every child’s natural love of telling stories with pictures. Today, Osmo, the award-winning system that sparked a new category of seamless digital and hands-on play for the iPad, teams up with Disney to bring those drawings to life in stories with Osmo Super Studio featuring Disney’s Mickey Mouse & Friends.
Drawing is a critical childhood activity linked to social and emotional development, according to research from the National Endowment for Arts. It’s also a way to ignite the imagination and create new worlds with beloved friends. Now, Osmo is collaborating with Disney to bring Mickey Mouse, Minnie Mouse, Donald, Daisy and all their pals to life in a magical new way.
Iconic Disney Characters Come to Life Kids guide the story in Osmo Super Studio by supplying Mickey Mouse and Friends with real- world drawings that are “pulled” into the story’s digital world and by answering yes or no questions. It boosts kids’ creativity as they help to shape the storyline with whatever they imagine belongs in the tale. As the story progresses, characters ask for tools, toys, scenery and snacks to bring into their world. When kids are asked to draw Daisy they have the freedom to draw her as they see her – or how they’d like to see her – with a bow or an astronaut helmet – the only limit is a child’s imagination.

“The power of computer vision and AI can bring a child’s imagination to life in new and innovative ways,” said Pramod Sharma, CEO and co-founder of Osmo. “This first-of-its-kind Reflective Animation experience bridges the world populated by the characters beloved by children of all ages with the creativity and artistic expression.”
Draw ‘Em How You See ‘Em Osmo’s proprietary Reflective AI technology, that allows the iPad’s camera to “see” physical objects in front of it, is at the heart of the world’s first Reflective Animation experience that gives kids a blank canvas to express themselves through story and by drawing their favorite Disney characters how they see them: any color, any size, any shape.
Osmo Super Studio combines the fun of Disney characters and storytelling with the power of art and self-expression so kids can bring Mickey Mouse to life as they see him in their imaginations.
Osmo Super Studio is suggested for kids ages 5 and up and is available as an add-on to existing Osmo sets for $19. Those new to Osmo can buy the Super Studio Kit that includes an Osmo iPad Base for $79.
