Explora, is an exciting travel / adventure docuseries for kids in the digital age, allowing young viewers everywhere to experience short, impactful journeys with our host, “Cela,” who gets up close with the most interesting animals, places, and people. Along with Cela, kids get to learn more about all the most fascinating people, animals, and things that make up our beautiful world.

Mac and the Monsters, is an animated series which follows the daily adventures of a little boy named Mac who befriends the friendly monsters that live around him. In every episode Mac and his band of Monsters get together to play, go on adventures, solve mysteries, or simply have a fun day.

Raffy the Curious Giraffe,  is an original animated series for toddlers ready to learn their first words, colors, and sounds. Raffy is a curious giraffe who lives in the jungle. Everyday, Raffy wanders around in hopes of discovering a new object, and learning about something new.

Zippy, is a preschool “show and tell” series, created through the eyes of a “kid at heart” who is so excited to explore the world around him, as if experiencing it for the first time, all the while explaining that world to kids in ways they will not only understand, but experience vicariously through the energetic and enthusiastic host.

The shows’ creators and exec producers as well as stars including Cela, Zippy, and Doodle Time characters, are all expected to attend the premiere in addition to the voices behind Mac and the Monsters and Raffy the Curious Giraffe.

“We are so thrilled that five of our original shows, all of which are produced locally in Miami, but designed for a global digital audience, have been accepted to this year’s prestigious Miami Web Fest” said Gimbl Co-Founder and CEO, Alex Pereira. He added that “one of our main goals is to expose kids and parents to quality, safe, and engaging video content, as opposed to what is currently found on other popular online ‘tube’ players…and we are so proud to share this new content with the Festival’s enthusiastic audience.”

According to the Miami Web Fest’s Founder and Executive Director, Bryan Thompson, “Fun and educational content like this is what I grew up on. It’s great to be able to expose our forum to tomorrow’s dreamers within a beautiful museum setting!”
