Zone·tv Brings Edutainment Content to the Zone·ify Playground Channel Through Kids Brand Akili and Me

TORONTO, CA – January 6, 2021 – Zone·tv brings exciting new programming to its zone·ify multi-channel video service through Akili and Me.

The show is an edutainment series designed for kids ages 3-6. Children will join Akili on her adventures in Lala Land to learn toddler appropriate material and the various emotions experienced during these early years.

Akili is a curious 4-year-old who lives with her family at the foot of Mt. Kilimanjaro. Every night when she falls asleep, Akili enters the magical land of Lala. Here she and her friends learn about language, letters, numbers and art. Akili navigates how to develop kindness and helps to guide children who are beginning to grasp their ever-changing worlds.

Ubongo, the creators of Akili and Me, began delivering top-quality learning resources to underserved kids across Africa. Due to the high educational value of the content, the series is now distributed world-wide.

“The series explores customary education as well as teaching young minds valuable life lessons and morals,” said Jeff Weber, CEO of zone·tv. “The importance of learning at home has increased and we are truly glad that the zone·ify service can contribute by providing a free source of practical edutainment.”
