How it works

HIW header

Colour is big. The world literally vibrates with it and it floods our brain every second our eyes are open. Everyone has a special relationship with colour and no-one more so than children. Connections we make with colours during childhood stay with us for a lifetime.

As well as offering an essential understanding of how colour works, the show opens a door to imagination and creativity (and a colour-first approach to art) in a wonder-filled exploration that’s sure to delight children everywhere. COLOURBLOCKS uses the proven magic of Blocks to help young children dive into the wondrous world of colour. Developed in consultation with a global team of colour experts, and packed with loveable characters, show-stopping songs, humour and adventure, the show delivers colour recognition, colour names, meaning and signifiers, mixing, mark making, similar and contrasting colours, light and dark and all kinds of patterns – and that’s just for starters. It's all designed to inspire young children to be colour explorers, discovering how the colours all around them work, and getting hands on with colour themselves.

Say hello to the Colourblocks!

Each vibrant Colourblock personifies a colour, making it memorable and exciting for a child. As they explore their colouring-book world, the Colourblocks discover that they can add colour to it as they go and, by working together, they can create new colours and make new friends.
