Understand with current situation, parents are juggling work, life, kids and the state of the world today. It is increasingly difficult as a parent to choose the right content and how much of it is for our kids. Therefore, YouTube has decided to release over 100 movies and specials on YouTube Kids, ensuring that your kids have a memorable ‘After School’ experience.
From popular family movies and specials featuring Tayo the Little Bus, Baby Shark and Pinkfong, The Wiggles, Masha And The Bear, Oggy & the Cockroaches and Paddington, to a collection of the best animated short films anchored by Oscar-winning short film Hair Love, and a wide variety of educational specials including Sesame Street’s Elmo’s World News, produced in collaboration with the Lego Foundation, and selections from BBC Studios’ hit series, Hey Duggee. Every Monday starting today, for the next five weeks, YouTube Kids will surface these excellent movies and specials in the app’s “Shows” category, as individual videos, as well as playlists.
As part of this initiative, YouTube Kids will premiere Spookiz, a new movie produced by South Korean studio Keyring Studios, in collaboration with WildBrain, exclusively on YouTube Kids. Moreover, we will also offer special YouTube Original content, including Disney’s complete series Shook and two Simon’s Cat specials courtesy of Endemol Shine, for kids ages six and up.
There are a wide variety of YouTube Originals available on YouTube Originals for Kids & Family Channel and YouTube Kids, including Sherwood for kids age eight and older, Kings of Atlantis and Fruit Ninja Frenzy Force for ages five and up, and current favorite for many kids and tweens across the world — Lockdown, suitable for ages five and up.
That’s not all, you could create a movie watching experience for your kids at home by making their favourite flavored popcorn, movie night kits, setting ambient lighting, tweaking those sound settings, and don’t forget to introduce them to the movie characters ahead of the movie. You can get your kids ti produce their own movie review or create their own story based on the movie we just watched together. It’s a great way to help them learn and improve their writing and communication skills. Check out this great video in YouTube Kids to teach your children how to craft their own stories today.
