Big Events, has signed on to produce large scale inflatables and parade balloons for the North American and Latin American markets. 

The Zoonicorns inhabit the dreams of young animals, taking them on amazing adventures to help learn important social-emotional skills with a focus on determination, optimism and resilience. The Zoonicorns cleverly guide each dreamer through a whirlwind of fun-loving escapades and when the dream is over, the young animal wakes up feeling self-confident, with the decision-making skills necessary to overcome whatever challenges they are facing. At the heart of every solution is the one important truth—the power to solve any problem is inside of them.

Multi Emmy Award-winner Mark Zaslove (Winnie the Pooh, Lazytown, Bob The Builder) serves as show runner and lead writer/editor for the series. The music for the show has been composed by Emmy Award winning composer Rich Dickerson.
