Award-winning children’s educational and life skills app Lingokids has launched a new series for kids called Lucas and Me. In an ever-changing world that sometimes forgets the power of play, the series follows a delightful mouse and puppy duo that embark on adventures together and learn important modern life skills along the way.
Designed for ages 2-5, the show illustrates key lessons in friendship, responsibility and dealing with real-life situations through a blend of 2D animation and live puppets. In each episode, the two main characters model positive behaviors and attitudes for children to emulate. From facing fears during thunderstorms to learning about forgiveness, Lucas and Me supports children’s development by integrating educational lessons with delightful experiences and loveable characters.
Families can watch the trailer now on YouTube, and watch the series on the Lingokids app, where episodes will be released regularly.
“At Lingokids, we strongly believe that characters are the best learning companions for kids of all ages,” said Vladimir Klimov, Director of Content Strategy at Lingokids. “Lucas and Me gives life to two entertaining friends who will help our youngest viewers obtain valuable knowledge about the world. It’s a show for the entire family with many plot elements that will engage parents as much as kids.”
Lucas and Me is created and directed by Guillermo García-Carsí, the creator of the kids’ animation hit Pocoyo. The scripts for the series were co-written by García-Carsí and Emmy-winning and Oscar-nominated studio Baboon Animation. Mike Pollock, known as the voice of iconic villain Dr. Eggman in Sonic the Hedgehog, provides the voice of the Mouse.
“The idea of Lucas and Me comes from my pet beagle, Lucas, from my teen years. It’s a character I’ve been wanting to develop for years now. My first attempt to introduce him was in Pocoyo as a secondary character named Lula, but now in this series he is the star, and we can appreciate his personality in all his humor and glory,” said García-Carsí.
“This is the story of a cute-as-chaotic beagle and his friend, a savvy mouse who teaches him about right and wrong, without losing his cool (or at least trying not to). The Lingokids series, Lucas and Me, can serve as a tool for us adults and for kids to guide us on how to deal with our chaotic instincts in our daily lives. Or you can just watch it for fun!”
New episodes of Lucas and Me will debut regularly on the Lingokids app.
