PBS KIDS Announces New Series Odd Squad

PBS KIDS announced the production of its newest series: ODD SQUAD, a live-action media property designed to help kids ages 5-8 learn math. The show focuses on two young agents, Olive and Otto, who are part of the Odd Squad, an agency whose mission is to save the day whenever something unusual happens in their town. A math concept is embedded in each of their cases, as Olive and Otto work together to problem-solve and correct the oddity du jour in each episode. Each episode of ODD SQUAD includes two 11-minute cases in which the agents investigate weird and unusual phenomena around them and use math to put things right. From recapturing a gallon-sized blob that has separated into smaller pieces, to dealing with a slew of unicorns, dinosaurs and wizards that have escaped from books, there is no occurrence that is too strange for the Odd Squad as they face off against various villains that wreak havoc around town.

Children's Network, LLC and Kratt Brothers Company Releases First WILD KRATTS App

Children's Network, LLC announced the launch of the first WILD KRATTS app -- WILD KRATTS Creature Power, a science app from the popular series, available exclusively for iPhone and iPod touch. In WILD KRATTS Creature Power, kids follow the ever-adventurous Kratt brothers, Chris and Martin, as they dive into the world of animals with three new interactive animal adventures. Intended for children ages 4-8, the science-focused app enables kids to explore special creature powers as they pollinate flowers, bathe elephants and feed a family of raccoons. The app brings science concepts to life, giving kids the opportunity to learn about flower pollination by flying like a bee alongside Chris, help Martin keep elephants cool and comfortable by bathing them, and assist a mother raccoon in feeding her babies. These fun and educational games will not only help children build science skills, but will also nurture their enthusiasm for exploring the world around them. Produced by the Kratt Brothers Company, WILD KRATTS Creature Power includes three lively, immersive games that are each focused on a specific science concept. Children can collect stickers and take a picture in a Creature Power Suit as they earn high scores and learn that animals can take them anywhere in science.
