Milkshake! Tackles Multiculturalism With New Playdate Series 'Reu and Harper’s Wonderworld'

The British preschool block has greenlit a new influencer-led series from UK production company Doc Hearts, headlined by the kids of family-friendly YouTubers The Grimwades.

To engage young viewers, Milkshake! is spotlighting the UK’s cultural diversity against a familiar backdrop: playdates. 

Channel 5’s preschool block has announced the commission of Reu and Harper’s Wonderworld, a 20 x 11-minute factual series from London-based Doc Hearts (Motocross Girls). It stars five-year-old Hazariah-Reu Zephaniah and seven-year-old Harper-Rae (pictured) of The Grimwades, a British family vlog with 296,000 YouTube subscribers.

In the spinoff, the siblings go on playdates and visit the homes of other children in the UK to learn about their families and heritage. At each stop, the duo will learn greetings in different languages, see the flags of other countries, and try foods from a variety of cultures.

The playdate format is a smart way for the series to age down the exploration of new cultures and traditions, said Louise Bucknole, General Manger (GM) and Vice President (VP) of kids and family at Paramount UK & Ireland, in a release. 

With this commission, Milkshake! is also leaning further into influencer-led factual content. It previously ordered Go Green With The Grimwades (10 x 10 minutes), which sees its namesake family undertaking eco-friendly challenges.

Reu and Harper’s Wonderworld is slated to launch on May 20, just ahead of UNESCO World Day for Cultural Diversity on May 21.
