Expanding upon their existing relationship, NCircle Ent. signed a new multi-year DVD brick-and-mortar and online retail distribution agreement with The MoonScoop Group's Taffy Ent. NCircle will assume responsibility for the DVD roll-out of the new children's series CHLOE'S CLOSET in North America. NCircle, a division of Source Interlink Companies, has already begun elevating the North American presence of Taffy's preschool DIVE OLLY DIVE! series since June.
CHLOE'S CLOSET follows the fun-filled adventures of an adorable, imaginative little girl named Chloe who discovers magical new worlds while playing dress-up in her closet. With each new costume Chloe tries on, she is swept up in a fantastical journey with her best friend and constant companion, her security blanket named Lovely Carrot. Chloe's experiences also encourage the audience to celebrate how delightful it is to be a little kid embarking upon a fabulously fun and fearless, anything-can-happen journey -- while also exploring the exciting realm of preschool math.
The majority of each episode is devoted to Chloe's imaginary world, where the world of make believe is engaged once her closet doors open and a costume donned, while Chloe's real-life bookends the stories. The show is produced in 3D CGI and Flash animation by Mike Young Productions, in association with Finance Wales, S4C, KI.KA,ARD, TrickCompany, European Film Partners, B.V., Animation Dimension and Telegael.
An exciting mathematical curriculum is woven seamlessly and organically into the episodes, engaging kids and encouraging them to probe various age-appropriate topics such as: Numbers (recognition and counting); Patterns, Reasoning (following a sequence of events, sorting, putting in order, pattern making and recognition); Geometry (shape recognition, size recognition, directional words); Measurement (using a measuring cup, scale or ruler, comparing sizes and weights, and subtracting or adding from a group to make less or more); Theorizing (organizing and grouping items into different categories, hypothesizing why things are the way they are, and testing in order to prove our hypotheses/theories). CHLOE'S CLOSET supports audience participation and effortlessly makes math fun.
