The Moblees looks to get kids moving

Kids' CBC is set to air new live-action series The Moblees from Shaftesbury and Boulevard, which encourages kids to live a healthier lifestyle.

In an effort to get kids up and moving, Canadian pubcaster Kids’ CBC is airing new live-action series The Moblees on CBC, beginning Dec. 22.

Geared towards kids ages three to five, the series aims to inspire healthy changes, espousing a lifestyle that includes less sedentary behaviour and more physical activity and healthy foods. It will be broadcast from Monday to Friday at 8 a.m.

Based on the theatrical production The Ohmies (Laurie Miller, Benjamin Tollefson), The Moblees is produced by Boulevard and Shaftesbury in association with the CBC.

As a multi-platform “MOVEMENT Movement,” The Moblees will extend the experience beyond the TV screen to include online activities for kids at and healthy tips and recipes for parents at, as well as in-person appearances.

The Moblees and Kids’ CBC will also partner with ParticipACTION, to explore additional outreach opportunities.
