@BinoandFino are here again! DVD 2 is coming out soon!

I initially came across and fell in love with these cute and warm African children cartoon characters about 3 or 4 years ago. I call them my little friends 🙂 – They are Bino and Fino. Bino and Fino is a cartoon series about a brother and sister who live with their grandparents ‘Mama’ and ‘Papa’ in a modern day city in Africa. In each episode of DVD 1, Bino and Fino, with the help of their friend Zeena the Magic Butterfly and their family, discover and learn things about the world.

It was a fresh welcome to childrens’ entertainment & media (and thankfully also culturally educative and informative) for everyone, both at home on the continent and especially in the diaspora for parents who want their children to be culturally aware and knowledgeable about their roots – Africa . I didn’t hesitate to get my sons the first DVD copy when it was we released. We just had to, hitting replay multiple times on the youtube video clips that were made available online wasn’t cutting it. It was that goooood!! 🙂

Here’s one

Directed By Adamu Waziri –  Bino and Fino was created in answer to an industry demand for more ethnically diverse children’s entertainment. Especially for viewers from a Black African heritage globally, whether residing on the African continent or in Diaspora.

Importantly, it is an inclusive series for all children of Kindergarten and preschool age from around the world, from Africa, Latin America through to Europe, Asia and America. It is fun and educational. Bino and Fino will help to teach children about counting, colours, animals and will also help teach children major African languages.

And now to the great news! FINALLY! The Bino and Fino trailer for DVD 2 is coming out. New episodes of the cartoon will include aspects of African history – African culture – science – Math – Technology – African Geography – Nature – and more. Sign up  on the Bino and Fino email list to find out when you can get your hands on the new DVD.
