Shahid rolls out first kids’ original series for streaming platform

Shahid VIP – the premium, subscription-based service of Shahid launches Toota Toota, the very first Shahid kids’ original series.

The first season of “Tota Tota” series, the first of Shahid Originals’ kids-dedicated productions is available since the beginning of the current holy month of Ramadan.

The presented from MBC3, Dania El Shafie, commented, “Toota Toota is inspired by the [Arabic] word ‘hatoota’, which translates into ‘story’ – and a term commonly associated with the stories mothers and grandmothers used to tell their children before bedtime. It’s entertaining whilst educational at the same time; presenting some fun stories to young viewers around ages 3 to 6. The aim of the series is for children to develop a love of reading, whilst taking into account that a lot of content is now consumed digitally via an electronic screen. Filming Toota Toota was a wonderful experience, and we’ve received great support from the parents and children involved. It’s important that we present content that is in line with our culture and values, whilst also entertaining and educational.”

Shahid’s goal is to create more original, high-quality content for younger audiences. This series is one of many in Shahid VIP’s catalog, which also includes shows and films from Disney, Nickelodeon, and more.

The series is available on Shahid VIP, daily at 2 PM KSA time.

The second season of Toota Toota has already been commissioned with production expected to begin shortly.
