BulbKIDZ has secured global distribution, licensing and merchandising rights to two premium animated preschool series, "TuTiTu" and "NuNi", from Israel’s Twist Animation Studio led by creators Yossi Dahan and Sarit Ido Schechter.
Available in 18 languages, "TuTiTu" (111x11 minutes) is an internationally proven YouTube toddler leader with over 7 billion views. This 3D-animated educational series for 1–3-year-olds focuses on a friendly red hovercraft toy, named TuTiTu, who guides kids in exploring the basic building blocks of the world as colorful toys come to life in rhythm and rhyme. The rich musical content focuses on abstract thinking, learning languages, discovering new animals, singing original songs, and recognizing colors, shapes, letters, and numbers.
"NuNi" (11x4 minutes) is a global YouTube sensation. A comedic educational character driven 3D-animated series developed to empower 3–6-year-olds with empathy, heart and humor. The series creatively explores familiar childhood dilemmas by helping preschoolers develop social-emotional skills relevant to everyday life and developmental stages. Three and half year old NuNi speaks the language of toddlerhood: a language that is colorful, imaginative and humorous, and one that simplifies complex situations.
“'TuTiTu' and 'NuNi' both have the innate ability to speak to all cultures by igniting imagination, inspire learning and stimulate creativity on a global scale to our young audience,” says Nancy Koff, Co-Founder and EVP Content Strategy and Global Sales, bulbKIDZ. “These beautifully animated titles are the ideal complement to our growing slate of meaningful, coviewing entertaining content, and we are thrilled to be collaborating with Twist Animation in bringing their titles to a broader international audience.”
“Having the ability to uniquely cater our offerings to each broadcaster’s specific scheduling needs makes 'TuTiTu' and 'NuNi' extremely desirable in today’s highly competitive preschool space,” says Kiersten Halstead, Co-Founder and EVP Creative Development and Global Operations, bulbKIDZ. “The flexible packaging capabilities, combined with Twist’s talent and innovative versatility, enable bulbKIDZ to provide wholesome, fun, family content to service all platforms.”
“We are excited to be partnering with bulbKIDZ to share our characters and enhance the brands,” says Sarit Ido Schechter, CEO, Twist Animation. “We designed 'TuTiTu' and 'NuNi' with our own kids in mind and are confident that through our new relationship with bulbKIDZ, we will expand their global footprint.”
