Canela Media, the leading minority-driven technology company committed to redefining digital media experiences for the Hispanic community, recently announced that its standalone children's mobile app, featuring more than 3,000 hours of programming for Spanish-language audiences, is now available.

Isabel Rafferty Zavala, co-founder and CEO of Canela Media, stated:

We have carefully curated all the content available on the app to provide the best experience for children in Spanish and we are incredibly proud to launch the Canela Kids App with the advertising support of some major brands, including Mattel.

The complete selection

Offering seven channels with more than 40 new titles from main global content providers, including exclusive premieres, originals, and co-productions, such as Club Mundo Kids, Canela Kids offers premium content from some of the most recognized franchises in the world, such as Cocomelon, Barbie, Hot Wheels, Garfield, Air Bud, and much more.

Also featured in the launch is the Canela Kids Dance Challenge, where parents can submit videos of their child's best dance moves (ages 2-12) for a chance to be featured on the app.

Canela Kids has programming for all age groups from 0 to 12 years old and offers filters that allow parents to sort and select the content available for their children.

“Canela Kids was created with the aim to provide Latino parents with content in Spanish that is both entertaining and fun for their kids and at the same time, a vehicle to preserve their language and culture. As a Latina mother that is proud of our roots this project is very meaningful for my own family and it is my personal hope that Canela Kids will be equally meaningful for all Latino families who want to retain their language, learn more about our culture and have an impact in the future of building a more equitable USA,” added Rafferty Zavala.
