The top CBeebies children’s show, Numberblocks, will release their very first Christmas song ‘How Many Sleeps ’til Christmas?’, with a large proportion of profit going to Children in Need.
In keeping with the Numberblocks’ mission to help children discover the wonder and excitement of maths, ‘How Many Sleeps ’til Christmas?’ is a lively tune that encourages children to follow the advent calendar countdown to Christmas day. Families and young children will love singing and counting along with the Numberblocks as they get excited for the holiday season.
100% of proceeds from the UK will go to a cherished UK-based charity, Children in Need, to help support children and families who face hardship this Christmas.
The Greatest Showman actress and singer, Keala Settle, will sing in a special, wonderfully festive video on YouTube for the song. Keala is a Tony award-nominated actress and singer famed for her role in the film and for singing the smash-hit, Golden Globe-winning anthem, ‘This is Me’. Elle Cato, who recently toured with Van Morrison, will lend her beautiful Whitney Houston-style voice for the single release.
BAFTA-winning Numberblocks is the educational hit TV series that follows the adventures of ten unique counting block characters and all their numbery friends, who like to play games, sing songs, make patterns and go on adventures in Numberland. The interactive series makes maths visible and easy to understand, while engaging children with songs and lots of magical fun.
Numberblocks has a rapidly growing fan base globally, especially in the US, with over one-fifth of the Numberblocks YouTube traffic coming from America. The show originally aired on CBeebies and is now available on Netflix, Noggin, YouTube Kids and Kidoodle outside the UK. With the brand gaining huge popularity in the US, the Numberblocks team are thrilled to welcome much-loved American performer, Keala, to the Blocks family!
Our ambition to reach and teach children continues to grow and I am absolutely thrilled to have this earworm out in the world for Christmas 2022! The team has produced something special that we can truly be proud of. We hope you enjoy counting down to Christmas with the Numberblocks this holiday season.Joe Elliot, Creator of Numberblocks
