We finally get a look and listen of the Slumberkins ahead of its debut on Apple TV+ on November 4th. This series based on the emotional learning books with Bigfoot, Unicorn, Sloth, Yak, Fox, and friends looks exactly how we hoped with a mixed media of 2d animation and puppets as brought to life from the Slumberkins books. This is going to be a great series and should have toy support for the holiday season as well. Puppets are always something the kids enjoy and we are lucky that these puppets look amazing.
Friends make it easier to express how you feel. Based on the leading children’s emotional learning books, explore a world of emotions with Bigfoot, Unicorn, Sloth, Yak, Fox, and some of their pals when Slumberkins premieres November 4 on Apple TV+
