Pinkfong’s content series include nursery rhymes, lullabies, stories, phonics and numbers songs, and many more for toddlers to sing and dance along.

With the baby shark video below, the hit took over the Internet. It is still the most-viewed Youtube video of all time, counting more than 9.5 billion plays as of November 2021.

First things first.

Where does the Baby Shark song come from?

The song’s roots go way back.

It is said to be a traditional singalong chant with different versions in many countries, like the French Bébé Requin or the German Kleiner Hai, sung around campfires over and over.

In fact, not all the versions of the lyrics were toddler-friendly or even remotely friendly. 

As you can read, for instance, on this Reddit trend, many people recall versions in which a swimmer “lost an arm doo doo doo doo doo” or “lost a leg doo doo doo doo doo”. Fortunately, those were not the lyrics that went viral.

It was only when Pinkfong picked up the nursery rhyme that Baby Shark Video hit the charts. 

Pay attention because this is where the magic secret lies.

Pinkfong guaranteed it was child-friendly by simplifying the lyrics, adding a twist with a K-pop style beat, and creating a video with vivid colors and small kids doing a fun easy-to-follow choreography.

That is the harmless sweet Pinkfong’s Baby Shark song we all know.

Then, someone created a hashtag challenge and the Internet was never the same again.

#BabySharkChallenge made a lot of fans across Asia upload their own videos dancing to Pinkfong’s Baby Shark on social media channels.

Even K-Pop stars like Red Velvet and Girls’ Generation joined the challenge. 

It happened organically and came as a surprise to SmartStudy, the global entertainment company owning the Pinkfong brand. The challenge spread Baby Shark tunes all over the world including the Americas and Europe.

Why is this original Pinkfong Baby Shark song so catchy?

No black magic here. Just rhythm, simplicity, and familiarity. 

First, the simple melody builds anticipation and is easy to follow.

Pinkfong took a fresh twist and recreated a traditional sing-along chant with Pinkfong’s Baby Shark by adding upbeat rhythms and fresh melody.

That is the reason why they are so helpful when a kid is learning how to talk and building vocabulary. It is easy to go along.

Then, the lyrics, work on the same principle. The lyrics are repetitive and uncomplicated, as are most nursery rhymes.

It’s the end!

The original Pinkfong Baby Shark Song lyric tells a friendly tale about the Shark Family going on an adventure – they go hunt.

Baby, Mommy, Daddy, Grandma, and Grandpa are recognizable concepts to toddlers.

These are people with whom most of the children have a positive relationship. With whom they feel safe and comfortable. They can relate, they create a bond with the music.

After the Shark Family is presented, comes the action: they go hunting.

Hunting comes in this original baby song as a non-violent exercise, but instead as a family activity that all sharks enjoy.

In the video, we can see all the sharks are happy, and even the little fish at sea are enjoying the music.

Although there is a part where the prey fish “run away”, it is depicted as an innocent hide and seek game.

The song is predictable and memorable, but the cherry on the top of the cake is the choreography that children can dance to.

The colorful video shows two kids performing easy-to-follow dance moves synchronized with the beat patterns. Any kid watching wants to join the fun!

A curiosity: the opening chords, although sounding like the Jaws theme, are in fact from Antonín Dvořák’s Symphony No. 9.

Can kids learn something by listening to Pinkfong Baby Shark tune on and on?

Doo doo doo doo doo doo, yes!

Kids can benefit a lot from music and dance. It grabs their attention and amuses them. What best way can you find to teach kids?

The Baby Shark Pinkfong is a simple song, made to entertain and bring joy while activating mind and body.

As toddlers are still developing language and accuracy of motion, simple songs and simple dance moves are perfect for them and less frustrating.

The key to toddler music is repetition because it encourages understanding and memorization.

Music inspires creativity and stimulates the formation of brain chemicals such as dopamine and oxytocin. 

Through dance, children develop spatial awareness and improve their motor coordination.

Why Pinkfong’s Baby Shark is particularly captivating for toddlers?

Certainly, because it is perfect for parallel play.

Parallel play is a form of play usually observed in two and three-year-olds: children usually play alone, not interacting, but are still interested in what the other children are doing.

Dancing and singing-along Pinkfong’s Baby Shark, toddlers are playing in parallel with the kids on the video.

Besides, the message behind this toddler anthem is very positive. It portrays the family relationship and the importance of spending time together and caring about each other.

As the magikbee’s founders who couldn’t find a VOD platform that was safe for their kids, Youssi Dahan, Talmon Gamliel, and Sarit Ido Shechter were always bumping into videos that had not the right rhythm. They were too noisy and did not speak in a toddler-appropriate way.

It is really easy for kids to identify with Nuni.

The Nuni cartoon main character is a 3-and-a-half-year-old girl facing all the situations toddlers face when exploring the world around and growing up, like weaning from the pacifier, using the potty or sharing toys.

Because of the growing popularity of TuTiTu cartoon and to approach an older target too, Twist Animation created the educational series NuNi.

It is really easy for kids to identify with Nuni.

Her two best friends are Abbit, the rabbit, and Effi, the giraffe, who are very different from each other.

Abbit is impatient and impulsive, while Effi is rational and finds it more difficult to adapt to changes.

They kind of symbolize the two perspectives of NuNi when confronted with a challenge.

In fact, the cartoon name NuNi is made up of two syllables:

Nu and Ni. Nu represents the ‘no’ and Ni the ‘yes’.

With NuNi, preschoolers find that the right answer is balancing the two voices.

This cartoon show is aimed at children between 2 and 6 years old, and has a global appeal, not being attached to a particular context, culture, or religion.

We are sure your little ones will love these kids shows and ABC cartoons. And you will be delighted too!
