Leading Bristol-based animation production studio A Productions has been selected to work on a brand new off-shoot of the hit children’s show, Pip and Posy.

Pip and Posy Let’s Learn (age 3+) will be available on Sky Kids in October.

The series is an off-shoot from the hit show produced by Magic Light Pictures and based on the books illustrated by Axel Scheffler (The Gruffalo). Pip and Posy Let’s Learn is produced by Magic Light Pictures, with animation services provided by A Productions.

Viewers will play with Pip, Posy and their friends as they use their amazing sense of fun, imagination and rhyme to explore a range of subjects. The series aims to teach concepts from the early years curriculum, such as shape sorting and simple maths, in exciting and inventive ways.

Katherine McQueen, joint managing director of A Productions, tells us, “We are hugely excited to have begun animation on Pip and Posy Let’s Learn with Magic Light Pictures. We are very much looking forward to helping to bring these much-loved characters to life for this new off-shoot series, which will see Pip and Posy bring their sense of fun and playfulness to learning in their own unique way.”
