We have a SUPER DUPER update to share direct from Sagoville: The new Sago Mini Friends Earth Day Special 'Treasure It' is now streaming on Apple TV+!
In the new Earth Day special, titled 'Treasure It', which premiered today, Friday, April 14, on Apple TV+, an old lunch box finds new life when Harvey transforms it into a treasure box full of unique items for his friends. The 23-minute special focuses on helping kids learn the importance of recycling by inspiring them to think creatively about how they can reuse and transform items that were otherwise meant for the trash. Through the show's pre-school friendly humour, unforgettable music, and positive messages of optimism and kindness, the colourful characters of Sagoville take us on curious adventure full of recycling and play! Along the way, we watch as they discover new ways to reuse items in their world, for example turning a piece of paper into a paper crown, transforming a pillow case into a superhero's cape, or tying a shoelace into a lasso! 'Treasure It' is filled with imaginative fun, valuable lessons, and is a great way to celebrate Earth Day with the family.
