A co-pro between Turkish powerhouse Fauna Entertainment and global animation major Toonz Media Group, Briko premiered in Turkey with a huge launch
Briko, a pathbreaking new pre-school series aimed at turning passive viewership into active viewership through its STEM-focused and DIY-based narrative, has made a grand debut on Turkish channel MinikaÇocuk. The 52 x 8’ series is co-produced by Istanbul-based Fauna Entertainment and Toonz Media Group headquartered in Singapore. The show, which lays strong emphasis on environment conservation and recycling, aims to empower children’s imagination and incites them to take up new creative activities.
In the series Briko and his best friend Hepi, a white rabbit, find a surprise box hiding a not very exciting everyday object, which they turn into super fun and exciting games or art crafts using their imagination and creativity. The animation series also includes a live action DIY tutorial to inspire viewers to take up similar crafts and activities.
The show has received tremendous interest among kids, parents and national press, praising the eco-friendly highlight of the show.
Fauna already started the L&M program of the show in the country and will launch Briko’s magazine, activity books and STEM based toys in January2021.
Currently being pitched to buyers by Imira Entertainment – Toonz’s distribution arm, Briko is premiering in international markets such as Mipcom, ATF, MipCancun and soon at Kidscreen 2021.
