When you were little did you ever imagine what you wanted to be when you grew up? I remember telling everyone that I was going to be a ballerina despite never having even tried a ballet class. My parents just went along with it and let me dream and to this day I still think I’d like to try it.
When our kids have big dreams of what they want to be when they grown up, how do we give them the opportunity to explore the possibilities?
A lot of it boils down to letting them use their imaginations. Using our imagination is a very powerful things especially at a young age. That’s the premise behind the new preschool show set to air this summer called Can You Imagine That! on TVOKids that’s created for kids, by kids! The animated/live action series stars 52 young kids and their big ideas.
Each five minute episode features a child’s perspective, voice and even their own animated drawings about what they want to be when they grow up. It sweet, adorable and hopefully inspiring to young viewers!
Some of the careers include a lifeguard, kindergarten teacher, robot inventor, paramedic, fisherman, chef, toy maker, marine biologist, animal shelter worker and even a DJ. The list of possibilities is long and there are also a few surprises!
In conjunction with the new series airing, an interactive digital component will also be released by Tobo Studio. The game premieres on June 22nd and allows children at home to also imagine themselves in their dream careers as they direct, write and act in their very own videos. Imagine That game will premiere on tvokids.com
