Some of my favorite shows when I was a kid were Mr. Roger’s Neighborhood, Sesame Street and Electric Company. They were just fun to watch. While Sesame Street still exists, it is now on HBO Max, vs. PBS and unfortunately, the other two shows fell by the wayside.
Well, there is a new streaming app called Bentkey that is aiming to bring back similar shows to the ones above that many of us watched as kids.
This is a sponsored post on behalf of Review Wire Media for Bentkey.
What is Bentkey?
Bentkey is a streaming service that will offer kid focused programming. It features exclusive Bentkey adventures as hand-curated shows for kids and family viewing. A key feature of Bentkey is that it is an entirely ad-free platform. Because it is an app, shows on Bentkey can be viewed on multiple devices and can be watched on the go.
Bentkey is available to download in both the Google Playstore and the App Store.
What shows will be on Bentkey?
Bentkey will launch with four original shows. The four original shows include:
- A Wonderful Day with Mabel Maclay – Join Mabel as she goes around her neighborhood and meets her neighbors and does fun activities with her dog Jasper. They sing songs, read books and have a fun time The character is upbeat and perky and will appeal to most kids. (Fun fact: The creators and main actors in the show are from Florida.)
