TuTiTu is a global toddler phenomenon with over a billion YouTube views, available in a myriad of language channels!
TuTiTu is a successful 3D-animation video series for kids 2-3 years of age. Young viewers are introduced to a friendly red hovercraft named TuTiTu, who guides them in exploring the basic “building blocks” of the world. In each “toys come to life” episode, colorful shapes are transformed into a new and exciting toy, prompting the child to call out the toy’s name.
TuTiTu’s videos teach toddlers new vocabulary words, and foster curiosity and creativity. TuTiTu’s songs-for-kids series is perfect for older children, who can learn new words in English while singing-along to the original lyrics and happy tune. TuTiTu is available in an ever-growing number of languages, and can also be used to help children learn new languages.
TuTiTu – The Toddlers Get It!
The Magic of TuTiTu lies in the way the toddlers are fascinated and engaged in the viewing experience. Toddlers are eager to find out how toy parts come together to create a whole, and will happily call out the name of the toy. In this way, the videos help children learn new words. Each episode features a new toy, yet recurring motives give toddlers a comforting sense of familiarity, while they are learning new concepts.
Endless hours of experimentation led us to a combination of elements we believe are perfect for a toddler’s early learning needs. These include a peaceful rhythm, a colorful fantasy world filled with things toddlers care about, exposure to only a few simple objects, and pleasant melodic background music.
Anat Eshed, child development expert and an educational advisor to the development of the show, recommends: “Use the videos as language and basic-concepts learning tools for toddlers by watching with the child and discussing the shapes and colors on the screen. For older children I recommend using the videos to initiate a dialog about the things that interest them. You can also talk about social norms, safety rules and different emotions and experiences the videos may bring up.”
Free Games and Crafts!
In addition to the videos, the TuTiTu website provides an online playground featuring free games, crafts and activities for young children. We invite you to enjoy our playground and all it has to offer: free coloring pages, puzzles for kids, paint and match games, and birthday cards for kids to color. All of our online games are colorful and appealing, and include the familiar visual and musical TuTiTu motives our young viewers adore.

The store will feature apps for kids, sing-along songs to download, TuTiTu birthday party supplies and more.

Who We Are
Twist Animation is a digital art studio, founded by Yossi Dahan and Tal Gamliel in 2002. More than 10 years of professional experience in 3D Animation and graphic design, as well as our love for the fine arts, led to the founding of the studio. We have a passion for creating animated characters with unique and enchanting personalities, and strongly believe that “if you love something it shows”.
TuTiTu was born when we created a series of short videos to entertain our own children. It was their enthusiasm that drove us to share the videos with the rest of the world- and we were blown away by the positive reactions from around the globe. The growing interest motivated us to create more quality toddler videos, and expand into sing-along songs for kids. We plan to continue making videos and interactive products for kids, in the hopes of bringing a little bit of 3D magic into every child’s life.
