MUMBAI: Dealing with back-to-school blues with your kids? Nickelodeon is around to ease the stress. The kids’ franchise, comprising of Nick, Sonic, Nick Jr. and Teen Nick, will make school time happy time by bringing kids favourite Nickelodeon toons straight into the classrooms. Nickelodeon is geared up to take interactivity and engagement to a whole new level with their latest back-to-school programme starting August.

The channel takes the campaign on-air by inviting kids to watch the channel from 6 PM to 7:30 PM, answer simple questions and win exciting Nick goodies. The channel is also airing fresh episodes of the three light hearted comedy shows to entertain kids when they get back home from school.

Sonic, the destination for real action and adventure, is pumping in the adrenalin with its school campaign ‘Sonic Be the Ranger’. Power Rangers will be travelling across 200 schools in 8 cities engaging kids through activities that truly bring out the real ranger in kids. With the aim of inculcating bravery and courage in kids, Sonic has appointed a fitness instructor for each of the classroom sessions to teach school children some cool moves around self-defence. To take this engagement on-air, the channel is inviting kids to come and watch ‘Power Rangers’ from 1 pm to 2 pm every day, answer simple questions and win prizes. Sonic has also introduced fresh content including the new series ‘Extreme Football’.
