Kids can now travel and learn safely without leaving their home via Mang Lalakbay, the country’s first educational travel show for children that bring kids to scenic places across the country to learn and have fun at the same time.
Premiering today on A2Z Channel 11 and streamed live on Kapamilya Channel, Kapamilya Online Live, and iWantTFC, Mang Lalakbay has everything a child could ever want while traveling under a “better normal” with their parents and families.
If toddlers discover words and numbers in Batibot, science in Sine’skwela, and mathematics in MathDali, children will learn valuable lessons in Mang Lalakbay through animation, songs, crafts, tips and more while accompanied by two adorable puppets.
Every Sunday, the playful Kuya ‘Bay will lead the kids in exploring natural and manmade attractions, including lush forests, rugged terrains, and bustling cities.
Prolific film, theater and commercial actor and singer Vic Robinson, the main host of Mang Lalakbay, will speak with stewards and protectors of the environment and its creatures on these exciting journeys.
He will also take the kids aboard vehicles that are uniquely Pinoy.
He will sail the seas aboard the balangay, a boat inspired by those built by our ancestors for interisland trading, explore the city in a dyipni (jeepney), enjoy the countryside in a traysikel (tricycle), or even fly to faraway places aboard his magical eroplano (airplane).
Mang Lalakbay will guide the kids in appreciating and preserving the environment while learning from their own fun encounters, interactions, and curiosities in the show’s 11 episodes.
Produced by the creative production agency The Jumpcat Experiment, the pioneering half-hour “travel and explore” show will not only bring the kids to picturesque locations but will also encourage them to care for, preserve and protect the environment and its creatures.
“The show aims to inspire everyone to hop on board our travels and lessons,” Mang Lalakbay’s executive producer and co-director Joan Lopez-Flores said.
The pilot and second episodes will focus on animals and the importance of sanctuaries and zoos, while in its third episode on the Animal Kingdom Foundation in Concepcion, Tarlac will tackle the need to adopt and care for rescued animals as pets instead of buying.
