The roads are quieter and the parks are busier, which can only mean one thing: it's half term. And to celebrate, Sky is bringing back kids' TV favourite 'Morph' and adding new features to its Sky Kids app.
New and exclusive episodes of 'Morph' as well as movie-making tutorials will air this half term, with the first episode available today. They will be available only On Demand either via the Sky Kids app, the kids sections of Sky Q, Sky+, Sky Go and on Now TV using a Now TV Kids Pass.
But it's not the only new kids' show coming to Sky. The kids' version of Sky 1's popular science panel show 'Duck Quacks Don't Echo: Kids' will be available from next week. Animated versions of kids' classics 'The Gruffalo' and 'The Gruffalo's Child' are also coming soon.
So what are these new features for the Sky Kids app? Up Next will prompt viewers to watch the next episode in a series – if it's available – after the previous one finishes. Just Watched lets kids pick up a show where they left off, or see in the home screen what they've recently watched. And they can now dress up their Buddy avatars and give them fancy new hairstyles.
"We're really excited about bringing 'Morph' back to screens this half term and everything to come for the Sky Kids app and kids' shows on Sky – and we hope our customers are too!" Lucy Murphy, head of kids' content at Sky, wrote in a blog post.
