IEDC is leading the new wave of internet entertainment companies by integrating its library of children’s video with powerful gaming engines to produce the next generation of online social game franchises.
Our mission is to set the standard with wholesome, fun, family entertainment franchises that deliver enjoyment, life skills and positive guidance.

"Building the youth for the future is our social mission.
Building the world’s greatest kids and family digital entertainment company is our corporate goal."
In 2005 a visionary creative and commercial team in Brisbane, Australia set out to redefine children’s animation. The result was a fun, wholesome entertainment experience that set a new standard in kids TV. They called it FARMkids. Within 12 months it had gone global.
Today, this same team is breaking new digital boundaries. How? By taking FARMkids, where today’s kids (and their families) live and play – into virtual worlds, social games, and mobile apps! FARMkids was hot because each episode focused on core family values. FARMkids took honesty, faith, integrity, respect and justice and more, and wove them into a crazy TV series. Kids loved having their favorite FARMkids friend; parents loved the family values in each episode; and everyone loved the wacky mix of an old-fashioned farm with wild 3D animation.Fast forward.
Today’s kids and families have gone digital. They are savvy social media, gaming and smart phone users. They live an online, social, game playing, mobile life where the smart phone, tablet or computer is their window to the world, their friends, their entertainment, their shopping and the information that shapes their lives.
And yet in this ultra-networked world, families never seem to have time to connect like they once did, never have time for those all-important family values that shape the next generation.Until now.
The development team (now reborn as IEDC) had the vision to pick up FARMkids and move them to TV’s future – mobile, digital interactive platforms.
IEDC takes the wholesome, family TV style entertainment off the television screen and into contemporary virtual environments as online, interactive entertainment and educational experiences which can be shared with friends and families and supported by traditional educational materials such as books.
The old saying “the family that plays together, stays together” is as true today as it was in the past. But the way that today’s family plays together needs to be consistent with the way that today’s family lives.
IEDC entertainment franchises for pre-school children, kids aged 5 – 10, tweens age 8 – 12 and teens are designed to bring a new dimension in entertainment and personal development for these age groups.
Each entertainment platform delivers experiences, core values, education and just plain old-fashioned good fun that is age appropriate and safe so that young people can explore their world within our Virtual Worlds.
Our mission is to set the standard with wholesome, fun, family entertainment that delivers enjoyment, life skills and positive guidance.
Building the youth for the future is our social mission.
