Global entertainment company Moonbug, which develops and distributes values-based educational content for kids, has announced its continued expansion into China through a strategic partnership with Tencent Video, the market’s leading streaming platform offering a wide range of diversified and multi-dimensional content.
With this partnership, four of Moonbug’s leading IPs, Go Buster, Playtime with Twinkle, The Sharksons, and KiiYii will be available imminently to Tencent Video users.
These popular animated shows promote healthy values such as compassion, empathy and resilience while teaching children fundamental life skills through engaging storylines and interactive nursery rhymes. Each show will be available in Mandarin and English.
Moonbug provides values-based educational programming for children. Its popular kids lineup includes global sensations CoComelon, Blippi, Little Baby Bum, My Magic Pet Morphle, Supa Strikas, Go Buster, Playtime with Twinkle, Gecko’s Garage, ARPO and many more which are available in 26 languages.
In just two years, it has become a kids programming powerhouse with a library of more than 550 hours of content, which is distributed on more than 100 platforms globally, including YouTube, Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, Joyn, Sky and Roku.
