New PBS KIDS series Lyla in the Loop

Funded by the U.S. Department of Education’s Ready To Learn Initiative, Lyla in the Loop is a new fun and educational series from PBS KIDS, which includes videos, digital games, and hands-on activities.

Lyla in the Loop follows Lyla, a dynamic 7-year-old girl who lives in a big city with her close-knit family, her fantastical blue sidekick Stu and a host of relatable and quirky characters in her community. Lyla loves to collaborate with Stu, her mom Lydia, her dad Louis, her older twin sisters Liana and Louisa (12) and her little brother Luke (5) to solve everyday mishaps, messes and mix-ups. Along the way, Lyla relies on creative problem-solving and critical thinking skills to design and test her ideas and build imaginative contraptions (which lead to clever solutions and comedic disasters).
