Life in Eggleston and the surrounding lands is one giant puzzle and the Eggsperts are on a mission to deliver new eggs to their homelands, crack the special hatching word and welcome an eggstraordinary critter as it hatches into their quirky world! Sam, Jazz and Tom are the very best egg hatchers – but they are also good at getting distracted. Sometimes they find themselves caught up in the wild, whimsical and wonderful things they see along the way! Luckily they are “eggsperts”, and together they find ways to get back on track and get their new Critter friend hatched!
Children experience and learn new and exciting things every day – just like the Eggsperts. Each episode brings children on a new adventure of discovery in a fun and playful environment and features one or more of the characters facing a quirky challenge. The stories reflect a combination of charm and adventure which underpins the website design and experience. Targeted at preschool children, the series focuses on the use of phonemic awareness, letter recognition and socio-emotional learning – three key elements in a child’s journey in learning to read. The episodes include sound and word play, rhymes, songs and tongue-twisting fun.
Learning should be associated with fun, excitement and a feeling of accomplishment. As children solve the clues, with the help of the Eggsperts, they associate learning and teamwork as a positive and rewarding experience, as they help to hatch the egg and find a reward inside! The goal is to motivate children to learn and to encourage curiosity and creativity as they explore the colourful and fun world of the Eggsperts!
