NI children’s author Yvonne Fleming of the children’s book series, The Weatherbies has announced a very exciting global deal that will see the animated series air on US Kids Room TV to promote climate knowledge for future generations.
The Weatherbies has signed a 26 episode, two year deal with leading US media company VlogBox to add the animation to Kids Room TV channel, offering a unique opportunity for the Maghera based company to reach a new audience across the globe.
Kids Room TV is a new Kids’ Edutainment CTV channel, created by VlogBox that helps children develop new skills in their leisure time while keeping things fun and simple by bringing together dozens of content creators. What separates Kids Room TV from other children’s TV channels is that its shows are carefully moderated before appearing on screen. The channel is available on Amazon Fire TV, Google TV and soon Apple TV.
The series ‘Fun Topics with the Weatherbies’ & ‘Storytime with the Weatherbies’ creates content for preschoolers, educating young children on the importance of climate awareness and how they can have a positive impact by changing their day-to-day behavior to help create a sustainable environment by using educational songs, animated videos and stories. The goal of the series is to deliver environmental educational facts in a fun and entertaining way and offer resources to support learning and teaching in primary schools.
Quote from VlogBox ‘This partnership is great for us both because we at VlogBox are happy to do what we’re really good at – to deliver “The Weatherbies” on CTV and gain a new audience for the animated series. We’re happy to support the idea of climate awareness and make it more available to a wider audience as well – states Nick Platonenko, CEO and co-founder of VlogBox. I believe this partnership will bring benefits to everyone – “The Weatherbies,” VlogBox, and indeed for the viewers.’
