Puppet Planet is 'n nuwe kinderopvoedkundige program wat wetenskap storievertelling en poppespel gebruik om Suid-Afrika se natuurlike erfenis te vier.

Sluit aan by Thandi en haar magiese hond Oogies, terwyl hulle deur tyd terugreis om Suid-Afrika se wonderlike verlede te verken.  Ontmoet lang uitgestorwe diere, ondersoek antieke omgewings en leer hoe lewe op aarde deur die tyd verander het!


Sluit by ons aan terwyl ons Suid-Afrika as een van die wonderlikste plekke op aarde vier!
