NICK JR. BRINGS THE MAGIC OF WORDS TO LIFE WITH NEW SERIES WALLYKAZAM!

London, 25th September 2014 –Get ready for words to transform the world around you, as Nick Jr. premieres the brand-new series Wallykazam! on Monday 6th October at 4:00pm. Wallykazam! follows the adventures of a troll named Wally and his pet dragon Norville, who live in a magical forest full of giants, goblins, ogres, sprites. In each episode Wally uses a magic stick to make words come to life.

wally_03HRWallykazam! is the first Nick Jr. series that embeds a literacy curriculum into a full-length story, introducing skills such as letter and sound identification, rhyming and vocabulary development. Created by producer/writer Adam Peltzman (Emmy Award-winning The Backyardigans and Bubble Guppies), Wallykazam! will air regularly weekdays at 4:00pm on Nick Jr.

In the series premiere, ‘Naptime for Borgelorp,’ Wally babysits Ogre Doug’s hyper and unpredictable pet Borgelorp. Ogre Doug gives Wally two instructions: get Borgelorp to take a nap and, most importantly, make sure he doesn’t eat any purple flowers. Wally uses magic words to help tire out the rambunctious creature and desperately tries to keep him away from purple flowers, but Bobgoblin has other plans. The words introduced in the episode start with the letter ‘s’ and include somersault, soar, sandwich and symphony.
