Nickelodeon has launched a Spanish-language hub on its Noggin preschool SVOD app that features full-length episodes from popular series including PAW Patrol and Blue’s Clues, as well as short-form nursery rhymes from bilingual property Canticos.
Nickelodeon bolstered its Spanish-language educational content last November by partnering with the IP owner of Canticos, Encantos Media Studios. Sing-along Canticos nursery rhymes currently available on Nick’s digital preschool platforms–including NickJr.com, the Nick Jr. app and Noggin–are “Los Pollitos/Little Chickies,” “Elefantitos/Little Elephants,” “La Araña Chiquitita (La Arañita)/Itsy Bitsy Spider,” “El Barquito Chiquitito/Little Teeny Tiny Boat” and “Sol Solecito/Little Sunny Sunshine.”
Nick and Encantos will also develop the first Canticos consumer products line encompassing a number of categories including toys, accessories, publishing and home. (Nick is on the lookout for promotional and consumer products partners for the program.)
Since launching in 2015, ad-free Noggin has added 1,500 full-length library episodes from 36 series to date, plus short-form videos, educational content and music videos featuring preschoolers’ favorite Nick characters.
It also recently launched a new science and reading hub and, in the coming months, will debut a new movie hub. The first seasons of Wallykazam! and The Fresh Beat Band, and new interactive play-along videos from Wallykazam!, Bubble Guppies and Team Umizoomi, are also expected to debut later this year.
