The puffins of Puffin Rock have landed!


We are very excited by our gorgeous new animation Puffin Rock, which premiered on Nick Jr. this week. If you’ve not seen it yet, there’s lots to tell!

Puffin Rock follows pufflings Oona and her baby brother, Baba, as they embark on a range of adventures together, discovering the wild and beautiful Irish island on which they live. It’s sweet and engaging and already a hit with discerning 3-5 year olds! Let’s hear from the children of St. Michael and All Angels Preschool, fully fledged Puffin Rock fans after just the first episode.

The series is narrated by Chris O’Dowd, who was clearly thrilled to be part of team Puffin Rock! ‘There is something truly beautiful about puffins down by the water. When I’d go into the studio to voice my narration it chilled me out immediately and sorted out my whole day. I love anything to do with puffins, I always have! I love creatures of the sky and sea and thought it was time to tell pre-schoolers about them, and Puffin Rock does just that.’

The lovely voice of Oona is narrated by Kate McCafferty (above) from Derry, who was picked ‘on a normal school day’ and had no voiceover or acting experience (although she was already famous in the world of Irish dancing, and has had some pretty AMAZING routines!).

    My little girl loves rabbits! She makes a Bugs Bunny noise, wiggles her nose and shouts “hop hop hop” while making her toy rabbits bounce up and down!

  2. My daughter loves bears. Polar bears, grizzly bears, koala bears, all things bears. Her favorite show is Puffin Rock. She’s two and calls the show “Baba boo”. I love letting her watch it and know it’s educational and adorable!
