The app has been met with extraordinary acclaim from military personnel and their families since its launch. Over 8,000 stories have been watched and enjoyed, and the app has been featured on BBC News
and in the Daily Express
. The most significant evidence of its success comes from the families themselves:
“With my husband away on a 6-month deployment and my children, Henry aged 2 and Matilda aged 6 months old, your app is so important to play to our babies, so they remember daddy. They don’t understand why he isn’t here, so they love seeing and hearing daddy.”
"I am an army wife and my husband is deployed to Afghanistan for 4 months. This is our 3rd deployment but 1st for our 3-year-old. He always struggles whenever his dad goes away. This time we decided to download the Little Troopers app and give it a go. My husband recorded the stories in the app and let our little one know that he has recorded the videos and whenever he misses him he can watch them. I found him looking at the videos the other day and had to fight back tears. I could not thank the Little Troopers enough for making this possible. Thank you very much from the bottom of our heart.”
Cantarus and Little Troopers would like to give special thanks to ABF The Soldiers’ Charity, whose funding made the Little Troopers Treasures app possible.
