Kids' CBC Days Are Back - July 16-17, 2014 #Toronto
When Boo was little we spent many mornings watching Kids' CBC. The Doodlebops and Poko were a couple of our favourites back then. And then one evening I was at an event with Yummy Mummy Club folks, and who should be there but CBC Patty!! I was so excited to meet her, like a little kid. I tried to be all mature and stuff, but I was totally fan girl inside. Turns out she's a sweetheart and totally cool with me being a little silly. With the annual Kids’ CBC Days returning next week, you and your wee ones could get a chance to meet her as well!
July 16 and 17 will see two free, fun-filled days of family-friendly programming and events at the CBC Broadcast Centre in Toronto, from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. Families, preschoolers, school-age kids, parents and caregivers are invited to join the festivities, which include interactive activities, live performances and free giveaways. Kids will have the opportunity to meet their favourite Kids’ CBC stars and supporters including hosts Patty and Sid, Mamma Yamma, BOOKABOO, DANIEL TIGER,SUPER WHY! and CBC Local News Toronto host Anne-Marie Mediwake.
Exciting and engaging stage shows will take place each day, featuring live performances by musical guest Will Stroet and the Backyard Band and appearances by favourite Kids’ CBC stars. Catch a special live stage performance of “The Most Awesome Space Adventure Ever," based on the all-new Kids’ CBC series YOU & ME which will premiere in winter 2015. This unique stage show will introduce kids to host JP and his puppet friend, Chuck, while giving the audience a taste of what they can expect from the new program. Plus, catch the daily interactive and music filled stage show Kids’ CBC Live, with Patty, Sid, Mamma Yamma and all their special friends.
Kids will be able to paint and make crafts, hop in the bouncy castle, hang out in the interactive digital zone and play a host of games! Kids’ CBC Days also kicks-off all-new children’s programming with the launch of three new series that will join the Kids’ CBC morning line-up including YOU & ME, CHIRP and THE MOBLEES.
YOU & ME - premieres fall 2014
YOU & ME is a return to classic children’s television with a modern bohemian sensibility, it invites children to take part in the ultimate play date with JP, the ultimate playmate. It's filled with adventures that explore the world of a preschooler, all set in a place where people, puppets and animation coexist in perfect harmony. It's an imaginative and hilarious series ruled by "kid logic," matching the exact frequency of children's play and inviting them to join in at every turn.
CHIRP – premieres February 2015
Based on the best-selling and well-loved children’s magazine, “Chirp,” this series celebrates play, imagination and the power of invention. Chirp, Tweet and Squawk are three best friends who use their imaginations and everyday objects to get them in – and out of – fantastically fun adventures and hilariously sticky predicaments.
THE MOBLEES – premieres December 2014
THE MOBLEES is a multi-platform "Movement Movement” designed to promote healthy active living among Canadian children. Set in the whimsical world of Terra Mova, the series invites children to join in the action, and engages them with energetic and compelling characters, catchy music, beautiful sets, and adventurous storylines filled with fun, humour and above all, movement!
