Ping and Friends is a preschool series all about music. Ping is a songbird and each episode she joins with her friends to create a new song, inspired by some occurrence or problem in their everyday lives. If life’s a song, they’re going to sing it! Having fun with sounds, words and rhythms, Ping and friends come up with the most fantastical songs imaginable.
The intention is that children will in turn be inspired by seeing the creative process in action. In a world full of playfulness and fun, the friends’ improvisation draws on musical styles from all around the world.
PIng and Friends has been coproduced by Emmy nominated Brazilian animation studio PinGuim Content and Canada’s Kondololé Films and presold to Discovery Kids in Latin America and TVO, TFO, Télé Québec and Knowledge Network in Canada.
As well as 52 seven minute episodes, there are 52 two minute musical clips, a web game and an app, which has been nominated for the 2019 Youth Media Alliance Award of Excellence for Best Interactive Content in the preschool category.
