(Relaxnews) – Released this month, the app “So Many Stars” takes pieces from Andy Warhol’s early “So!” collection and turns them into interactive, animated pieces.

Dogs enlarge in size, spaghetti is consumed, and fish splish in illustration of the concepts behind pieces like “You Are So Little and You Are So Big,” “You Are So Small,” “So Sweet” and “I Love You So.”

Produced as part of a collaboration between the Andy Warhol Foundation and pushchair manufacturer Bugaboo, the app partnership might seem even further into left-field than its content were it not for a limited edition stroller also borne from the alliance.

And Warhol’s early career as a commercial illustrator is the source of the “So!” series of designs.

Still, the $2.99 / €2.69 iPad app comes in at significantly less than other items in the perambulator-oriented collection — and there’s no need to limit its use to tots and toddlers.
