Vida The Vet 

Capitalizing on its success and expertise in the creation of children’s programming, in 2023 Spin Master launched an all-new animated series Vida the Vet, following ten-year-old Vida, an animal doctor who nurtures the charming and silly woodland creatures who live outside her home. The musically inclined series premiered on children’s broadcasters, BBC’s CBeebies in the UK and Corus Entertainment’s STACKTV and Treehouse in Canada (where it was the #1 kids 2-5 show in its time slot), late 2023 and into 2024.  In the USA, the official Vida YouTube channel and Netflix are home to the whimsical world of Vida with a wonderful array of long and short form content. Many leading linear international broadcasters are launching Vida the Vet over the course of 2024. More details coming in the next few months. 

With Spin Master toys launching this fall, the Company has also aligned on a soon to be announced global publishing deal that will deliver more of Vida’s adventures to children starting Spring 2025.
