MIMO Studios launched an animated preschool series on YouTube called @HippoPark to prepare children for consuming content and games in the Metaverse.

Created in Unreal Game Engine, @HippoPark will feature episodes that range from 15 seconds to 90 seconds.

@HippoPark will launch in Web2 with “a goal of meeting kids where they are currently consuming content — and then preparing for their migration to consuming content and games in Web3.” Season 2 will be developed with Web3 extensions.

MIMO Studios is committed to making children and families feel comfortable navigating within the Metaverse through these guiding principles:

  • Respect the community, especially kids
  • Assume the audience is younger than they are
  • Encourage kindness and empathy
  • Inspire creativity
  • Celebrate diversity, visible and invisible
  • Make safety a priority (and teach it where we can)
