Nick Jr. UK to Premiere 'Calvin and Kaison’s Play Power!' on Monday 1st June 2020

Nick Jr. UK & Ireland will premiere Calvin and Kaison’s Play Power!, a brand new Australian-produced short-form series on Monday 1st June 2020! Nick Jr. will air two five-minute episode segments daily, at 4:00pm and 4:05pm, respectively, with both new episodes encoring the same evening from 7:00pm.


Produced by Nickelodeon Australia, Calvin and Kaison’s Play Power! centres around Aussie “unboxing” brothers Calvin (7) and Kaison (4), whose YouTube channel CKN Toys, which was launched in March 2015, boasts over 14 million YouTube subscribers and over 13 billion video views.

“At Nickelodeon we take play seriously”, says Ben Cox, General Manager of Nickelodeon Australia & New Zealand (ANZ). “Play is fun and appealing to our preschool audiences and is also vital to early childhood development, which is why we chose to hero this message in Calvin and Kaison’s Play Power!

“As children play, they develop critical cognitive, emotional, social, and physical skills. These skills children set the stage for future learning and success from the school classroom to the workplace,” says Catherine Sewell, Play Specialist.


"Stars of the popular channel, seven-year-old Calvin and his four-year-old brother Kaison have joined forces with Nickelodeon to create a short-form story-driven TV series that follows the duo on their play-ventures with best friend ROBO-G.

"Tapping into the popular unscripted, spontaneous and fun narrative style that has garnered CKN Toys a global following, each episode will see Calvin and Kaison embark on a play-venture in their Kid Cave, which is interrupted by a series of challenges including giant cakes, missing friends, playful monsters and out of control toys. In order to overcome these challenges, Calvin must transform into an everyday superhero and use his play power to save the day.

"As preschoolers follow along with Calvin and Kaison, they will experience the many benefits of play, including the development of creative thinking, problem-solving, emotional intelligence and communication skills."


Calvin and Kaison’s Play Power! made its world premiere on Nick Jr. Australia on Monday, April 20, and is currently rolling-out on both Nickelodeon-branded linear and digital platforms across Australia, the U.K., Asia, and Canada.

Nickelodeon struck an exclusive multi-territory agreement with the Mohawk rocking content creators in October 2019.
