Current price $.617/share (+ 8.13% as of 10:00 a.m. EDT 5-17-22)
Book price (mrq) $1.85/share
After closing the Monday session at $.57 GROM shares gained in early trading with 98K shares traded in the first thirty minutes of today’s session. I’m looking for a continued upturn in the share price throughout the day.
In news that broke this morning, GROM subsidiary Curiosity Ink Media announced a new book series for children featuring the iconic figure of Mr. Zip, a character used by the US Postal Service.
The MR. ZIP books will center on the daily activities and occasional adventures of MR. ZIP. With deliveries to the police station, doctor’s office, library and more, young readers will get to explore how those in their communities go about their day, through whimsical illustrations, fun puzzles, and colorful stickers. The MR. ZIP series will come out in Fall, 2023 and feature non-fiction, novelty, picture books and activity book formats for preschool, as well as middle grade readers.
I said earlier that Curiosity could become the top revenue generator at GROM and Mr. Zip is another addition to the prolific number of creative projects the subsidiary is developing. If you’ve followed the developments at Curiosity with us, you know that many of management and partners have had experience at Nickelodeon (owned by Paramount), the huge media network geared toward children.
In just nine months as a part of GROM, Curiosity has announced the development of several book series, internet/television series, and full-length feature movies geared toward children. All that doesn’t necessarily mean that Curiosity could become the next Nickelodeon, it simply means that the folks running the company know how to do that.
Stay tuned for our full report on GROM.

Good day everyone,
I want to update you on Grom Social Enterprises, Inc. (NASDAQ: GROM) the social media company just for kids, and a creator of media content for animated films and televisions series.
Current price $.57/share (at market close 5-13-22)
Book value $1.85/share (mrq)
Two subsidiaries of GROM, Top Draw Animation and Curiosity Ink Media. Top Draw has been the main revenue generator at GROM with 400 artists generating 2D animation for television and film providers and they have done so since 1999. Curiosity Ink was acquired by GROM in August of last year and is a developer of original story telling content. Both subsidiaries are headed by Russell Hicks, formerly President of Nickelodeon Animation Studios, who has masterminded countless iconic franchises like Scooby-Doo, SpongeBob, and Dora the Explorer.
Top Draw may continue to be the lead revenue generator for GROM through H122 as they continue to book significant business. That could change however in H222 with Curiosity Ink’s Santa.com hitting full stride during the holiday season. While Santa.com was operational in 2021, it did not yet have ecommerce capacity and it will in the 2022 season (see press release below). Their ecommerce capabilities, combined with the marketing experts they have onboard could lead to significant revenues in the 2022 holiday season.
Here’s what’s new at GROM:
Last week, the company confirmed the fall return of Santa.com, the company’s digital online hub, where kids and adults can shop and experience the joys of the holiday season. The addition of e-commerce at Santa.com this year (was not in place last year) places Grom and Curiosity squarely in the booming holiday e-tail business. Santa.com will feature easy to navigate features for gift giving, entertaining, decorating as well as games and a digital North Pole experience.
In collaboration with publishing partner Dynamite Entertainment, Curiosity Ink Media will also be launching four holiday books: How the North Pole Works, Snow Boy, The Adventures of Herbert Henry, Santa’s Secret Society and Baldwin’s Big Christmas Delivery. Additionally, the company is in development on an original, animated musical holiday feature film, inspired by annual classics like “Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer” and “Elf.”
GROM’s Hollywood-based division, Curiosity Ink Media, announced that it has enlisted Afterglow Pictures, LLC to assist in the development and distribution of the company’s expanding roster of original animated franchise properties. Curiosity was founded in 2017 by former Nickelodeon executive, Russell Hicks, advertising executive, Brent Watts and toy/marketing/production executive, Jared Wolfson. GROM acquired a majority stake in Curiosity Ink Media in 2021.
