Tickleberry Place - Children's Animation

In a small imaginary and magical world called Tickleberry Place there are small farms, gardens, trees, and plants. Tickleberry Place is home to the miniature Tickleberries that spend their days helping each other and the world around them.

Terry, Evie, Kato and Kina are best friends. This particular group of Tickleberry children love to play. Every day they visit their secret playhouse where they are presented with new items to play with. Through simple story telling and songs, these four friends are introduced to ideas which build their emotional intelligence, self-awareness and social skills, while encouraging positive communication methods.
