Mini Kids

The first two seasons have aired in Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and The Faroe Islands to critical acclaim, delivering strong performance among all age-groups particularly on channel-led video on demand platforms.

The Mini Kids aims to stimulate activity and development for toddlers. It features real life one- to two-year-olds and combines them with animation and music. The show’s objective is to inspire positive interactions among young children. It also stars ‘Fantus’, an animated character the audience engages with throughout each episode.

The series is structured in accordance with curriculum based preschool/kindergarten’s practice, with safe and familiar frameworks and rituals.

It won the Prix Jeunesse 2020 and best VFX at the Golden Screen Awards Norway 2020 and 2021.

"

The Mini Kids really strengthens our pre-school offer and is one of a few outstanding shows for this age group. It’s hugely didactic and something that parents across the globe will welcome. Safe, funny and enjoyable for the youngest sector!

Jetpack Distribution’s CEO, Dominic Gardiner

"

The Mini Kids has had exceptional ratings in Norway and we are very happy that the show can now travel the world with Jetpack. We are optimistic that The Mini Kids will be as well received outside of the Nordics.

Head of NRK Super, Hildri Gulliksen
