Look out for Puffin Rock, a sweet new children’s show coming to Nick Jr. The show will premiere next week on Monday 18th May at 6.30pm, and it is a perfect bedtime wind down show for little ones.
Puffin Rock features a puffling called Oona (voiced by talented Irish dancing child star Kate McCafferty) and her baby brother Baba. We had the chance to preview the first episode and my boys and I all enjoyed it, and are looking forward to more.
Read on to find out more about the show, and look out for Puffin Rock themed crafts, printables and a special Puffin Rock giveaway coming up over the next few weeks.
Puffin Rock is a beautifully illustrated animation, set on a little Irish island. I love the colours and style used, which make the show calming and relaxing, just right for the 6.30pm slot.
The show softly weaves in some educational content, alongside the cute stories of Oona and her little brother having fun together and discovering their wild and beautiful Island. The first episode shows them discover frogspawn, and find out how frogspawn changes into tadpoles, froglets and finally into frogs.
After watching, R wanted to watch it again straight away! The show is aimed at ages 3-5 and I’m sure it will become very popular after it premieres next week.

Puffin Rock is Co-produced by Oscar nominated Irish animation studio, Cartoon Saloon, global publisher Penguin Random House Children’s, and Northern Irish children’s media company, Dog Ears.
Puffin Rock will air weekdays at 6:30pm on Nick Jr. The show stars 11 year old Kate McCafferty from Derry as the voice of Oona. McCafferty also sings the theme song for the series – which we love! The theme song is really lovely.
