Discover that ‘everything is better together’ in Waybuloo, premiering on ABC For Kids on 2.
Waybuloo transports children into a magical land called Nara – a world inhabited by adorable animated characters called Piplings. Taking a completely original approach, Waybuloo focuses on children’s feelings, and the Piplings embody a range of emotions including love, wisdom, happiness and harmony – all in search of ‘Waybuloo’.
Piplings are joyful and gentle creatures who personify positive emotion through the natural ability to float when they’re happy. They have a childlike innocence and sense of wonder, making them inquisitive, impulsive and funny. Naturally selfless, thoughtful and sweet-natured, they take care in their relationships with each other and the world.
In each episode, six children visit Nara to play with the Piplings and explore their land, as real life interacts with the animated world, showing that every child can visit Nara and find their own Waybuloo.
