PlayKids TV, an app allowing kids to watch their favourite TV shows on the move, has signed 13 new children's series, including Calilou and Care Bears.

The PlayKids TV app is available on both iOS and Android across the US and Latin America, allowing kids to pick what TV shows they watch.

Created by Movile, the TV app is keen to expand across Europe, Asia, Africa and Australia with the new additions to its roster.

Partnering with DHX Media, PBS, the Jim Henson Company and Televix Entertainment, the mobile app's new additions include Animal Mechanicals, Calilou, Super Why, Sid the Science Kid, Rob the Robot, Franny's Feat, Huxley Pig and Monster Math Squad.

The Paddington Stop Motion Series, Poko, the Herbs, Care Bears and Bo on the Go have also joined with the PlayKids TV app.

Many of the new series will be available across the Americas and the UK, while Movile plans its global expansion.

Eduardo Henrique, Movile co-founder and head of US operations, said: "They're educational, well produced and fun for our half million users.

"Bringing our innovative and interactive user experience to these series is an important step to offering an incredible product to a young viewing audience around the world.

"We believe that there's going to be a dramatic change in the way people watch videos on tablets and smartphones. with PlayKids TV, we motivate users to interact with the content instead of sitting passively in front of a display."
