How We Do It

With content specifically designed for three-to-five year olds, six-to-eight year olds, and, nine-to-twelve year olds by artists and animators who know how kids think and have years of experience producing high-quality content for the likes of Disney, Hanna Barbera, Warner Bros. and Marvel Productions.

Using a combination of e-books, games and videos, the content provided on this website and our streaming TV service starts kids out with programs on the alphabet, phonics, numbers and shapes; and progresses to cognitive thinking skills, self-awareness and the STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) subjects.

Afrokids has built the necessary digital infrastructure to deliver quality, culturally sensitive content to Black kids and families nationwide. The combined services have already reached over 500,000 households with educational and informational content targeted to underserved families. We know how hard it is to find an engaging, educational safe digital space for Black kids on the Internet and from the array of streaming TV options. That’s why we created Afrokids. Join our family today!
