In 1999 the World's first channel dedicated for pre-school children was launched, Nick Jr. As the girls have grown they have developed a love for Nick Jr and their favourite shows Paw Patrol, Dora and Friends: Into the City!, Peppa Pig, Lily’s Driftwood Bay and Blaze and the Monster Machines.
My girls are probably not alone in that they love to play on their tablets and watch their favourite characters. Nick Jr has just had a major refresh in order to be more user friendly to its audience. The site has been rejuvenated so it is much easier to use, contains free games to play and works across a range of devices
“Our aim was to rejuvenate nickjr.co.uk to match our young audience’s constantly evolving digital habits,” said Suzie Adams, Nickelodeon Digital Director. “We now have a platform which encourages and inspires children to use their imagination whilst providing them opportunity to immerse themselves in the worlds of their favourite Nick Jr. shows.”
The site is organised by character and also by categories:
A new section for the upgraded site, here users will find musical activities, games and sing-along videos. This section also hosts the much-loved Big Block Sing Song videos.
This hub congregates all of the content that allows kids to learn letters, numbers and more via their favourite Nick Jr. characters and shows. This section also includes the award-winning Nick Jr. Leap.
Here kids can create their very own artwork. Users can work with digital templates of Nick Jr. characters, embellishing them with a range of tools, from paint splats to glitter or can be printed and coloured by hand
The new site contains more videos than ever before, including music videos and original shorts. Plus thanks to the site upgrade, these can be viewed anywhere.
The site upgrade now means that all games can be played in full screen. In this section users will find a whole host of engaging gaming, including racing, puzzle and dress-up games. Each game created by Nick Jr. aims to entertain kids whilst also offering educational resources in topics such as maths, reading and socio-emotional skills.
