Nickelodeon brought back Noggin!! My kids used to love Noggin on TV, which is now Nick Jr., but this time it’s a new mobile subscription service for preschoolers. Available on the App Store for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch starting March 5, the paid service will be ad-free and offered for $5.99 a month.
Noggin will feature an abundant volume of long- and short-form content for preschoolers, with additional content added regularly. This has to be good…the shows on Nick Jr. are so great, all 3 of my little ones have always loved them to death, and so have we. They are so sweet, so visual, and each show teaches something new to the little ones…it’s really a perfect set up. An no commercials!!!
Anyway, the new Noggin app’s content at launch will include award-winning, education-based series, including: the ground-breaking Blue’s Clues, Little Bear and Ni Hao, Kai-lan, among others; music videos featuring kids’ favorite Nick preschool characters; and the return of the beloved Moose and Zee characters hosting educational videos that can help kids learn letters, shapes, matching and other important skills to get ready for kindergarten. SWEET!!! Moose and Zee are back!!!
New content, games and activities will be added regularly. Noggin’s content will remain library-based, separate and distinct from Nickelodeon’s preschool content currently available on its existing distribution platforms.
The titles available on Noggin at launch include: Allegra’s Window, Blue’s Clues, Blue’s Room, Franklin and Friends, Gullah Gullah Island, Little Bear, Miss Spider’s Sunny Patch Friends, Ni Hao, Kai-lan, Oswald,Pocoyo, Robot and Monster and The Upside Down Show.
Noggin serves as a complement to the highly successful Nick Jr. app, a TV Everywhere platform for preschoolers. The Nick Jr. app features a live linear feed of the Nick Jr. television channel and on-demand episodes of the net’s current series, via paid-TV subscriber authentication, plus interactive activities and educational moments.
This is going to be huge hit I would think…I know I’m going to check it out for sure. Caleb (and maybe even Natalie and Liam) will likely fall in love with it. And I’m ok with that.
