Fred Rogers Productions has secured a sponsorship agreement for Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood with Lovevery, the global childhood development brand supporting families with their subscription early learning program. The deal marks a first-of-its kind, digital-only sponsorship for the iconic children’s media organization trusted for its content geared toward inspiring a lifetime of learning. The collaboration will include custom-branded Lovevery pre-roll (video) that will precede the fan favorite series on PBS KIDS streaming platforms, including the pbskids.org video player and the free PBS KIDS Video app, as well as recognition on the PBS KIDS YouTube channel, beginning July 2023.
“Lovevery’s work to create thoughtfully crafted, developmental experiences and products for children and families aligns with both the learning goals of Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and our mission,” said Paul Siefken, president and CEO of Fred Rogers Productions. “We are thrilled to collaborate with an organization that puts equal emphasis on learning and growth.”
”We have long admired the mission of Fred Rogers Productions. Their enthusiasm for learning and the trust they’ve built with caregivers make them an ideal fit for Lovevery’s first broadcast media sponsorship,” said Roderick Morris, Lovevery cofounder and president. “Families who are drawn to Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood’s thoughtful programming and lessons to support social-emotional learning and practical life skills will find similar value in Lovevery’s early learning program. We look forward to forging connections with this like-minded audience.”
The Lovevery pre-roll videos accompanying Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood episodes highlight the commonalities in the missions of the two brands, including the goal to support families and children everywhere. Similar to the series and its learning goals, the content emphasizes the importance of learning through play at an early age.
Lovevery’s early learning system supports families with stage-based play essentials for children and multi-channel content for parents. The company is best known for its award- winning subscription Play Kits program. Lovevery was launched in 2017 by Cofounders Jessica Rolph and Roderick Morris with the introduction of the company’s first product, The Play Gym.
