The ZooMoo program lineup comprises over 3,000 self-contained shows, combining spectacular wildlife footage with a range of puppetry, animations, and narrative techniques to create a unique viewing and learning experience for little viewers.
ZooMoo’s programming grid or schedule is built one hour blocks with five themed strands: explore time, create time, play time, puzzle time and quiet time. These provide consistency and structure, something educational experts stress is critical for learning and skill-building in young viewers.
The revolutionary ZooMoo Second Screen app opens a world of interactive activities, where the tablet becomes an extension of the television screen, enhancing the viewing experience. Children and parents engage in a world of games, puzzles and activities – a concept wholeheartedly approved by world-leading educationalists.
