New show empowers kids using dreamtime adventures to teach important social-emotional and problem-solving skills; the brand includes interactive plush toys and music videos, available on YouTube and other streamers.
Kids and family entertainment distributer, Imira Entertainment, is launching Zoonicorn, a brand-new animated preschool series. The 3D/CG series debuts with 52 original seven-minute episodes. A mix of zebra and unicorn, the Zoonicorns inhabit the dreams of young animals, taking them on adventures to help learn important social-emotional and problem-solving skills. When the dream is over, the young animal wakes up feeling empowered to overcome whatever challenges they are facing.
The Zoonicorns include Purple Promi, a patient, kind super-planner, a wise and caring friend who finds beauty in everything she sees; Green Ene, a sweet yet cool tech whiz, who loves to figure out the solution to any problem; Blue Valeo, an athletic and strong – he approaches life with gusto and confidence; and Pink Aliel, a bubbly spark of endless energy, always ready to get things done and help others!
“It has been an unbelievable experience to watch our Zoonicorn characters and stories develop and grow over this last year,” commented Zoonicorn creator Mark Lubratt. “Our goal from the beginning has been to create a world that will entertain and engage all young children, no matter where they are from. Now it’s happening and we are incredibly excited to know that viewers from across the globe will be discovering and enjoying these fun, enchanting and inspiring personalities.”
“The characters have wonderful joy and energy,” added Imira Entertainment director – sales, Gulshan David. “It’s an imaginative and creative take on exploring optimism and resilience. We can’t wait for kids to have the opportunity to meet our Zoonicorns and we certainly look forward to adding it to our slate of titles for our viewers and partners from around the world.”
Zoonicorn products continue to expand since the brand’s U.S. launch in 2015. The TV series, which targets kids 2- to 6-year-old, comes on the heels of the release of interactive plush toys and music videos. The 11 Zoonicorn music videos have generated more than 2.7 million plus views as well as additional Sing Along videos offered exclusively on Kidoodle TV and other streaming platforms including Happy Kids TV, Kabillion and Toon Goggles Jr. Zoonicorn also features a limited-edition apparel line. Brand development and licensing for the property is headed by J'net Smith of All Art Licensing.
