Welcome to the Kazoops takeover!Introducing Kazoops, the latest kids’ TV show!
This week with the aid of Kazoops we are challenging preconceptions! From what a holiday should look like to whether or not tidying up can be fun, we will be looking at a new topic each day and putting it up for discussion.
Kazoops is an animated series which follows the adventures of six-year-old Monty and his best friend, Jimmy Jones the family pet pig. Monty uses his vivid imagination to challenge preconceptions about life such as ‘you have to wear matching socks’ or ‘all games need rules’ and, in doing so, demonstrates the value of critical thinking and creative play.
Here’s what Executive Producer, Patrick Egerton has to say: “Monty challenges a different preconception or accepted wisdom in each episode, which is exactly what kids at this age do. In writing the series our team of writers had to find ideas that would fit this mould and so the criteria was perhaps more rigorous than other pre-school shows. Some appear to challenge everyday conventions, like whether your socks always need to match, but are really about bigger ideas like the relative importance of conforming. Some are more lofty and abstract, like Monty questioning whether you can be scared but brave at the same time, which is really an exploration of the nature of courage. Over 78 episodes we cover a lot of ground, in a way that communicates to the kids without preaching, but is also meaningful to adults too.”
At UKMums.tv we love this inspirational new TV programme and we can’t wait to have some fun meeting the characters and bringing you some fun Kazoops style features that will help you think about preconceptions too. So what are we waiting for… who says your socks have to match!
