Newsday reports on Mibblio's partnership with Wingspan Arts
“New playful sounds, vibrant colors and whimsical characters of Mibblio are coming to life in a collaboration with New York City's afterschool arts and music program, Wingspan Arts. Mibblio, an interactive music storybook app for kids, partnered with the non-profit organization in a fun and creative effort during which the Wingspan students created their very own "mibblet” from start to finish.
“The Mibblio team collaborated with Wingspan and students (Pre-K to grade 4) from four different schools, including Queens' The Academy for Excellence Through the Arts (PS 303), Brooklyn's Brooklyn School of Inquiry (PS 686) and The Academy of Talented Scholars (PS 682), and Manhattan's Robert L. Stevenson (PS 183), on their original mibblet, The Bubble Parade.”

The Wall Street Journal digs into the story behind Mibblio's name!
“The New York cousins who started a digital sing-along storybook business have settled on the name Mibblio…. The challenge is to come up with something that conveys meaning, is memorable, and isn't just alphabet soup….
"At Mibblio, the naming process was 'the length of a human gestation period,' says the company's 28-year-old co-founder David Leiberman, 'but only more painful,' adds fellow co-founder Sammy Rubin, 35.
"The two men made several trips back to the drawing board… Finally, Mr. Leiberman thought to blend together 'music' and 'biblio,' the Latin root of 'book,' to form 'Miblio.'
”'It looked like “MY-blee-oh”,' Mr. Rubin says. So he suggested they add a second 'b' to aid pronunciation. Plus, the two b's double as eighth notes in the company's logo.“
