Generations of toddlers and pre-schoolers grew up with this program. And not just in Flanders. In thirty countries, from Australia to South Africa, little children enjoyed the ticking clock, the toddlers in action, the animal mosaic, the dancer, the book and all other features and characters.

Toddlers are fascinated by colour, movement, rhythm, music and interactivity. This programme capitalises on that, which is why it has been such a great success. The recurring short feature items meet children's need for regularity and ritual.
