We were very excited to attend a very special screening of the animated Night Zookeeper series at the BAFTA Theatre in London on Saturday March 16th.

At a packed-out event, children were able to watch the first four episodes of the Night Zookeeper TV series currently showing on Sky Kids and Now TV.

They also got to listen to the creators, animators and voice actors talk about how the series was made, and learn how the Night Zookeeper team collaborated with thousands of students around the UK to produce characters, locations, and other ideas for the show!

Some of the students whose ideas were featured in the first four episodes also came on stage to share how they came up with their unique ideas.

It was then the audience’s turn to come up with their own magical animal character that could be featured in later episodes of the series. With colouring pencils in hand, children created a whole host of amazing animals which were then displayed on the cinema screen for all to enjoy!

It was a fantastic day full of creativity, imagination and engaged and happy children. You can still create more ideas for the series at show.nightzookeeper.com

Thank you to BAFTA, Sky Kids, and all the attendees!

Our New Look Animal Dens: All you need to know…

As you may have seen, we recently launched a new look for the Animal Dens (where each animal lives) in Night Zookeeper. This aims to make it simpler for your child to use and to give them more choice in the activities they do. However, we know that with any change, it can take a little getting used to so we’ve put this guide together to help anyone who is wondering how to use it. Don’t worry, all the same features are still there!

Earth Day Writing Prompts

Earth Day Writing Prompts

The Night Zoo is a very magical world indeed, but we want children to recognise the magic of the world they already live in. These Earth Day prompts were designed to try and do just that, by getting kids to engage with their imaginations and write creatively about nature, the Earth and the environment. Hopefully it will encourage them to think a little deeper about what the word “Earth” means to them, whilst developing the key skills they need to be a star writer.
