Nick Jr. Too UK & Ireland To Premiere 'Kiva Can Do!' On Monday 8th January 2018

Nick Jr. UK & Ireland will start to premiere and show Kiva Can Do!, a brand-new preschool series featuring a colourful, multi-textured animation style, everyday at 7:30am and 7:45am from Monday 8th January 2018 on Nick Jr. Too!

Kiva Can Do! follows the adventures of Kiva Kain, a five-year-old girl who knows how to make her own fun and whose imagination knows no bounds! Kiva is the world’s greatest kid-inventor, and with her mechanically-minded best friend Saul Dunne, intrepid cardboard puppy Angus, and the encouragement of loving grandmother Nanni Praveena, Kiva sets out to assail the slopes of the highest mountains, dive to the bottom of the sea, and explore the furthest reaches of space in a quest for creative fun, adventures and friendship.

Each day after school, grandmother Nanni brings Kiva to her home where Kiva, Saul and Angus have the run of the living room - the special place where every awesome adventure begins! Nanni’s home is an incubator for ideas and dreams that are filled with promise and excitement. Using whatever odds and ends are found around Nanni’s home, Kiva and Saul quickly transform these items into fantastic props for their adventures – submarines, rocket ships, robot suits, igloos, pirate ships, scuba gear, fire engines, satellites and much more.

Featuring a colorful and multi-textured animation production design combined with magical storytelling, the Kiva series is sure to be a firm favourite with fans. The kid identifiable characters living in their own worlds gently remind and encourage young viewers that like Kiva – anything you can dream, you can do.

Online at, parents and children can find out more about Kiva Can Do!, as well watch exclusive clips from the show, including the shows theme song!

The series is funded in part by the Irish Film Board, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland, the Section 481 tax credit, and Ireland's national broadcaster RTE.
