Hopster, the best-selling TV and learning app from the UK, is now available in New Zealand.

Targeted at 2-6 year olds, Hopster is essentially a digital playroom for pre-schoolers, with a range of kids shows and educational games.

On Hopster, kids can engage with content independently in a world built for them.

A magical tree, inhabited by a magical set of creatures, helps kids discover more than 500 episodes of fun family programmes, including Max - Ruby, Poppy Cat, Toby's Travelling Circus, and 64 Zoo Lane.

Hopster's suite of interactive learning games is built on multiple international curricula and is designed to add depth to the video experience, ensuring Hopster is educational and stimulating.

Nick Walters, Hopster founder and CEO, says, “We're thrilled to launch Hopster in Australia and New Zealand, as our first two non-European countries no less.

“It's the same Hopster that over 300,000 families in the UK already love, but with a brand new line-up of hand-picked shows especially for our little viewers on the other side of the globe.

Hopster is available to download for free from iTunes. This version comes with a taster selection of its shows and games.

The full version of Hopster can be trialled for seven days with no obligation to purchase. After the trial, a Club Hopster subscription is $6.49 a month, cancellable anytime.
