While looking through the US version of the Nick jr Website looking for interesting games and stuff to add to Lisa’s computer I came across a very cute little character called Kai-lan. Kai-lan speaks Chinese and English. The show is a like Dora The Explorer, but teaches kids Chinese instead of Spanish.
Meet the cast of Ni Hao, Kai-lan! .. from left to right:
Tolee (a Koala), Hoho (a Monkey), Rintoo (a Tiger), Kai-lan and Yeye (Kai-lan’s Grandfather).
Kai-lan is obviously the star of the show, but her yeye plays a very important role as well in guiding her through life.
Rather then me try to be creative and just write what’s already been said by others, go and read an interesting article HERE from the NYTimes.
Now, if only the UK version of NickJr would get the show on here. The girls just love the show, but for them to watch it I’ve got to get it the hard way ..
