Shahid, the Arabic streaming platform, has released a new original series titled Globie’s Colourful World, the Arabic-language animation for pre-schoolers.
Globie’s Colourful World tells the story of Globie, a quiet shy cow who avoids trying new experiences. To help her become more social, Globie’s parents arrange magical and colourful trips to neighbouring islands where she meets new friends and encounters exciting situations, leading her to discover the happy-go-lucky, helpful, and knowledgeable being that she is.
Jakob Mejlhede Anderson, Group Director of Content at Shahid, commented on the release of the kids’ content on the platform saying: “Not only do we understand the importance of providing child-friendly content on Shahid, but we also understand how crucial it is to curate premium quality Arabic-language content that can help our younger viewers build up their Arabic language skills. Pre-schoolers will love Globie and her friends, which is an entertaining, but also educational Shahid Originals series. And with Shahid’s safety features, parents and guardians can have a stress-free experience knowing that their kids are only watching what is suitable for them”.
Shahid VIP claims its safety features ensure younger viewers only have access to what is chosen for them, including the ability for the adults to shortlist culturally relevant series, or series of a certain language. Many international titles are available dubbed in Arabic.
