These engaging melodies aim to teach and inspire, fostering emotional and social growth in a fun, relatable way.

The series is animated by Blue Spirit, the multi-award-winning studio renowned for its excellence in animation. The music for Mini Smiley is a collaborative effort written and composed by Philippe Soutter and John Mamann, whose notable works include tracks for Justin Bieber, Jason Derulo, and J-Lo.
