A Parent Media Co. Inc. (“APMC“), the creator of the Safe Streaming™ service Kidoodle.TV®, and Pinna® are coming together to offer Kidoodle.TV’s first audio-only experience for kids and families to access via the Connected TV and mobile app. Officially launched on Sept. 9, 2021, some of Pinna’s most beloved podcasts are now available to Kidoodle.TV viewers in over 160 countries and territories. The audio-only option comes at a time when some parents are concerned about increased screen time as a result of pandemic lockdowns. The Kidoodle.TV team recognizes that there needs to be an alternative to screen-only content and is excited to offer quality podcasts within an uncompromised and safe ecosystem.
Pinna is the only on-demand audio entertainment service developed and curated exclusively for kids 3-12, with thousands of hours of podcasts, audiobooks and music. A selection of episodes from Pinna Original podcast titles available on Kidoodle.TV include: Grimm, Grimmer, Grimmest; Don’t Break the Rules; 5 for 5 Trivia; Kyle’s Wild World; The Totally Unauthorized Minecraft Fan Show; Quentin and Alfies ABC Adventures.
“Adding the podcast experience to the Kidoodle.TV Safe Streaming™ service is a great example of how we are adding value not just as an AVOD streamer but as a solution and trusted destination for the families we serve globally,” said Brenda Bisner, Chief Content Officer for APMC’s Kidoodle.TV.
“Pinna is thrilled to be working with the safe streaming platform Kidoodle.TV to bring the first collection of kid-friendly podcasts, no-screens-required, to their audience. With a shared mission of bringing high-quality, entertaining content to kids in a safe environment, we’re excited to be collaborating with Kidoodle.TV to bring our award-winning Pinna Original podcasts to their platform – delivering an entertainment option that helps balance screen time with non-screen time activities for kids,” said Maggie McGuire, CEO of Pinna. “From improv-comedy, trivia-based audio games, and fantastical fairy tales to podcasts that tap into kids’ biggest passion points (aka – a Minecraft podcast!), there’s now an option to turn up the volume on screen-free fun on Kidoodle.TV whether kids are at home or on the go.”
Pinna and Kidoodle.TV both offer a safe opportunity for kids to enjoy the entertainment they love on a service that is free for all.
