ZooMoo TV - It's All Animals

Monday, 14 September 2015

It has been very hazy recently and we have to be stuck at home most of the time. Many parents should know how difficult it can be when children have no place to let off their energy. 

If you are like me, having to think of various activities to keep the kids busy and engaged, here are some ideas.



2) Marble Painting


3) Building a Fort




5) Television or Device Time

While we try to limit screen time as much as possible, it is sometime inevitable to allow the boys enjoy some screen time. Such as when Mummy needs to finish up some housework, prepare meals, do some work or even to just laze around. To make me feel less guilty, I usually allow educational shows or apps. Some of our favourite shows include Hi-5, Peppa Pig, Songs from SuperSimpleSongs.

ZooMoo TV

ZooMoo TV (StarHub Channel 306) is another program that I would recommend. If your kids love animals, they will love the ZooMoo channel because 'It's All Animals - All the Time. ZooMoo TV is a channel that engages and entertains children with stories about the animal world. It helps children to build their knowledge and affection for animals. It has a line up of about 4,000 shows, ranging from real wildlife footage, puppetry and animations.

If you are watching ZooMoo TV, you've got to download the ZooMoo app. Using revolutionary technology, the ZooMoo app is able to 'listen' to the ZooMoo channel! The channel will then sends original and complimentary content to the child's tablet, eg animal cards or food. 

ZooMoo App

The ZooMoo App is designed to work alongside the ZooMoo channel to extend and reinforce children's learning. 

Upon opening the app, children will be transported to ZooMoo Island. On the island, children can learn and interactive with up to 150 animals on the island. The island is divided into different habitats so that your child can learn where the animals live in, eg. grassland, river, ocean, etc.

The child can select an animal and watch a short real-life clip of the animal, learn its name and whether the animal is endangered, rare or common.

Children can also interact with the animals. In this scene, the baby buffalo is hungry. The children can help to feed the animal and earn hearts.


When enough hearts are accumulated, the child will get a present, where more animals are unlocked, more food cards or other interactive cards. Through this, children will learn how to care for and love the animals.

For parents participation, there is a parent's info section, where parents can learn more about the app. There are also animals fact file, which the parent can read up first and later discuss with the child while the child is interacting with the animal.


After installing the app, no Internet connection is required to use the app. There is no in-app purchases or advertising so parents can let the child play with a peace of mind. The ZooMoo app is free for download from AppStore and Google Play.

Introducing ZooMoo's New Series: 'Lost'
