To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, LA-based Exile Content Studio is expanding the market presence of its bilingual educational series Club Mundo Kids with a launch on Amazon Prime Video and the release of the brand’s first music album.
Club Mundo Kids Vol. 1 is now available on all music streaming platforms, including Spotify and Apple Music. It features eight original songs written and produced by Ignacio Gonzales, and animated music videos for each one will rollout on YouTube every two weeks. The first video, for the song “Trabalenguas,” celebrates how Spanish-speaking countries around the world have different words for the same things.
The Club Mundo Kids series incorporates live-action and animated segments to touch on topics such as the environment, sports and space. The 14 x 11-minute show is written and hosted by Romina Puga and targets kids ages four to eight.
It launched on Amazon Prime Video last week at the beginning of Hispanic Heritage Month. Season one is available to US Prime subscribers until October 15, having already premiered on NBCUniverso (US), Televisa (Mexico), Venevision (Venezuela), RTVC (Colombia) and TCS (El Salvador).
Latin America has been a growing focus for the kids industry lately. WarnerMedia recently appointed Beatriz Thompson as acquisitions manager for its new Kids & Family team in the region; ZAG has expanded its US and LatAm licensing team with the addition of Marifely Argüello Montealegre; and Disney+ acquired the exclusive streaming rights in Latin America to both seasons of Somos Productions’ musical series @Ginayei.
