The German TV Channel for children KIKA is featuring a Kenyan children’s TV Show. Well I call it Kenyan because it was done in a Kenyan studio, 80% of its cast is Kenyan and the music is by Eric Wainaina but, the tales are from across Africa, the artwork is from Tanzania and it was commissioned by BBC. So I maintain, it’s Kenyan ama?
Anyhu, the show has 52 episodes and targets 4-6year olds. Well, I’ll honestly say, they should just remove that limit. I enjoyed the show sooooo much, lol, felt like I was 4 again. So for the sake of those who are over 6 years old and love the show, I decree that the show is for 4 years and above 😉
The art work is so colourful, and the characters are just hilarious. The crocodile is grumpy, so I wasn’t shocked when I found it was Edward Kwach’s voice that was used…..lol.
I definitely love this, it gives the babies a chance to learn about African folklore in a modern way and in a way they enjoy. They might not get to sit by the fire and listen to grandma tell the stories but they still enjoy and learn something new.
