Travel With Karmarama To CBeebie's Playtime Island

'Playtime Island' is a new app allowing youngsters to interact and learn with their favourite Cbeebies characters

Travel With Karmarama To CBeebie's Playtime Island

Karmarama has created a new TV campaign for the launch of CBeebies Playtime Island, an app that allows youngsters to interact and learn with a variety of their favourite characters from the channel. 

The campaign, launching on 12th November, demonstrates how the app allows children to discover and explore new games with familiar faces from their favourite shows 

The series of TV trails, set to the soundtrack ‘Beyond The Sea’ by Bobby Darin, and directed by Eliot Dear, director of ‘The Bear and The Hare’, combine different animatic textures and filmic styles, such as animation, live action and model making. 

The trails illustrate children journeying to an exotic faraway island of the imagination and features characters from CBeebies programmes: Peter Rabbit, The Furchester Hotel, Andy’s Prehistoric Adventures and Topsy and Tim who are now included in games on the app.

Nik Studzinski, CCO at Karmarama says “The CBeebies Playtime Island app is one that was co-created by children and has creativity and play at its heart. This campaign captures a visual snapshot of a child’s imagination, with the help of iconic children’s characters. We’re proud of the craft that has gone into the work as we’ve created something that will ignite the curiosity of both children and parents, encouraging them to bring the brand to life wherever you are, on the new Playtime Island app”
