Good morning. It’s Friday, December 24, 2010, and this is your first early morning Kids briefing.
Disney Channel‘s introduces messaging for its new preschool/family-targeted Disney Junior multiplatform brand continues this Sunday, December 26, with the debut of the first in a series of three on-air spots during the network’s plays of Toy Story and Toy Story 2, at 6p and 8p respectively. The new messages focus on storytelling and characters, and features real kids with their favorite Disney characters. Each of the spots shows a real kid using their imagination to travel from our world to the world of one of the Disney Junior shows (e.g. Handy Manny, Mickey Mouse Clubhouse etc.). Set to launch in February 2011, Disney Junior, which is currently known as Playhouse Disney, will introduce content across the daily TV block on Disney Channel, an integrated website, VOD, mobile and paid download platforms. There will be 25 Disney Junior channels around the world, also currently Playhouse Disney channels, as well as via blocks on broadcast partners. In 2012 Disney Junior will launch as a basic cable and satellite channel in the US.
In New Zealand, TVNZ grows its kid/family and youth programming with the expansion of programming on its government-funded public broadcasting channel TVNZ 7, and the launch of a new commercial free-to-air digital channel (name TBD) aimed at teens/young adults 15-24 in March 2011.

Answer to Yesterday’s Trivia: In 1978 this was the toy to have for the holiday season – parents across the country camped out in front of their local toy store hours in advance of the shipments arriving, just to be sure their little ones at home could say they too had one of the most coveted toys of the season. The toy line was soon known as “the greatest success story in the long history of dolls.” What doll is this?
