Poppy Cat arrives at Nickelodeon Land

Nickelodeon Land at Blackpool Pleasure Beach will welcome Coolabi’s Poppy Cat, from the hit Nick Jr series, to its attraction from 30th┬áJuly for the entire season – joining the likes of SpongeBob SquarePants, Dora the Explorer and the rest of the Nickelodeon gang at the six-acre attraction.

The adventurous, orange pussy cat will be meeting and greeting youngsters, as well as hosting story time with children every day.

There will also be a chance for families to get healthy and dance along to an energetic ‘Copy Poppy’ routine, where little ones will be encouraged to mimic the costume character’s dance movements in time with the Poppy Cat theme tune several times a day on the Nickelodeon Land stage.

Poppy Cat is aimed at the pre-school market, and promises to bring extra adventure to guests at Nickelodeon Land, where younger children can learn and have fun with the colourful character, whilst enjoying the 12 amazing rides based on characters from one of the world’s favourite children’s channels.

Poppy Cat is based on the award-winning books written and illustrated by Lara Jones which have sold over 2.5million copies. Poppy Cat and her friends enjoy extraordinary adventures and with a flick of her patchwork bandana, fantastic vehicles appear such as sailing ships and hot air balloons.

Managing Director of Blackpool Pleasure Beach, Amanda Thompson OBE, said: “We cannot wait to welcome Poppy Cat to Nickelodeon Land at Blackpool Pleasure Beach. I know she will be a hit when she tells her amazing stories and I am sure the children will all love her!”

Director of Content at Coolabi, Michael Dee adds, “Nickelodeon Land is such a popular and fantastic attraction for families with young children. This partnership provides a great opportunity to create further awareness around Poppy Cat as a Nick Jr series, as well as provide another reason for parents to visit the Park with their little ones during the summer and beyond.”

Poppy Cat currently airs every weekday on Nick Jr and Nick Jr 2, as well as on ITV1 and CITV. For more information on the pre-school series, please visitwww.poppycat.com, or become a fan of Poppy Cat’s on Facebook (www.facebook.com/officialpoppycat) or Twitter (www.twitter.com/PoppyCat_).
