Hi-5 was launched in Australia in 1998 with five dynamic performers entertaining children aged 2-8 with music, movement, problem solving and play.
More than 15 years later, the children’s musical group is well known around the world with an estimated audience of more than 10,000,000 children globally with its tours, music and TV shows.
When my girls were younger, the tv program and characters for them were Hi-5.
Back in the days when the program featured Nathan, Tim, Charli, Kathleen and Kelly, the girls would sing and dance along with the catchy songs that featured and the bubbly personalities that were on screen. We ended up with so many DVD’s (which we still have) and I have to confess that as far as kids programs went, Hi-5 were one that I didn’t mind them watching.
The characters were bright and colourful, their attitudes were always positive and to me, they portrayed great role models for the girls.
So as a parent, I love the fact that the Hi-5 team have kept the fun alive and continued the experience going for children today.
Yes, the characters have changed, but the dynamics haven’t and children still love the team that is the Hi-5 as we know it now.
