Avanture Trbe i Dugog
Four friends living together in Dragon’s castle encounter various life challenges or problems that occur to them.
Things might not be as they look at first glance, and one should always look at the world with an open heart and without prejudice. We’re conveying this message while helping kids develop in a safe environment. Each episode has a plot that is carefully built around real problems that kids have in real life, such as fears, lack of trust, rushed decisions, bullying, being different, even divorced parents. The problems were isolated by professional psychologists and parents, and are checked for our target audience age, 6-10 y/o. However, we don’t talk about them directly; instead, we embed the problems in funny plots. The fact that we have four main characters with different personalities allows us to give them the opportunity to overcome these problems together and not to look weak. Rather, they are smart and cool, and good friends. The keywords we had in mind while writing were “stealth education”, “smart” and “together”. And our spices are humour and rhythm.
