A bunch of girls, studying mass communication at Misr International University took their graduation project to the next level. They just didn’t want to create something that would come and go, so they created the concept was to bring back classic puppets vibes such as “El Leela el Kbeera”. But with a few touches and modifications to make it compatible with today’s mindset.
They say that having a great idea is just halfway through success, but implementation is the key. So after lots of search and brainstorming; Kiko and Riko came into life, as the first up-to-date, educational, and entertaining puppets in Egypt.
So, here’s Why we really think that “Kiko and Riko” are the ideal companions for kids nowadays:
Generally speaking, kids nowadays aren’t easy to deal with; the level of sophistication of this era made kids more information-oriented, more involved, and keener to interact with technology. Trying to take a tablet, or a phone, that has youtube from a kid is like taking a bone from a dog; They’ll certainly scream and shout.
Their Instagram page is with no doubt a hub for entertainment, and they are so with all the stories that are told by the explorer puppets. They are always on the go, searching for their home. However, they are both up to date with all the emerging trends that intrigue kids these days. The fictional characters enhance kids’ knowledge, in an amusing way. They cater for events that combine art and fun but not cheesy enough to repel your kids! I, myself, enjoyed watching it, kind of reminded me of the good old days of Bakaar!

Aside from all the amazing things that the show offers, the one that caught my eyes the most is that the show raises awareness as well. They shed the spotlight on all the kids with disabilities and mentor how should society be there for them. All in all, the puppeteering venture aims to balance the equation of edutainment; education, and entertainment. challenging isn’t it?
To be honest, we can’t wait to accompany Kiko & Riko on their next trip!
