UK-based animations producer Aardman Digital (Wallace and Gromit) has launched a website for the new CBeebies wildlife-based TV series Andy’s Wild Adventures targeting kids ages four to six.
According to a report by Kidscreen, the site, which goes live this week and is hosted by the TV show’s presenter Andy Day, features two environments, the Amazon and the African Savannah. Two additional environments, the Arctic and the Rocky Mountains, will launch at the end of March.
Interactive activities, fact files and mini-games will also be featured to help children understand animal behavior through entertaining, repeat gameplay.
Andy’s Wild Adventures is produced in conjunction with the BBC Natural History Unit. It uses Day’s first hand experiences to introduce children to animal characteristics, behaviors and environments.
