You’re invited into the wild world of Doodlesville, where anything can happen and it usually does.

Doodles is every kid’s favorite friend! She and her funny pals, the Oodles, are on a mission to make every kid feel special and part of the fun! The wacky Oodles are all members of the ultra cool, once-in-a-lifetime Kind Kid Crew – and you can be too!

Doodles is the star of our show and serves as the gateway to adventure for kids around the world. She is the world’s first female kids’ show host who is actually closer in age to the kids who’ll be watching!  Doodles is more of a peer than a mentor. She’s your friend! She curates our adventures with excitement and savvy.

Doodles will discover new and exciting people, places and things, right along with the kids at home. Her enthusiasm and joy is infectious, and will encourage kids to want to see and do all the things she does. Whether it’s WOW-ing us on how to make lava in a cup, or petting a baby alligator, lemur, kinkajou, armadillo, Doodles does it all with style and a smile.

When faced with a puzzling situation or a challenge, Doodles will talk her way through the problem, right along with the kids at home. She’ll ask questions, try out new and various strategies, and will ultimately allow the kids at home to be full participants in the decisions she makes.

Doodles loves trying new foods, going to new places and she especially loves visiting with rare and unusual animals.

But most of all, Doodles likes to make the world a better place. She looks for opportunities to be kind to one and all, and she sincerely hopes that she can make a positive difference in the lives of her friends.
