In partnership with ABC Kids we have reimagined The POD – now a multimedia experience incorporating ‘Stop, Look, Listen’ films. The POD will continue to evolve over the coming months, creating unique opportunities for play and exploration in a changing physical and digital landscape. 

In the first experience inside The Pod, children and families can immerse themselves in an enchanting natural world that engages the senses, encouraging children to think, feel and be present in their surroundings. They are taken on digital and physical journey, meeting animal friends along the way and observing natural features in the environment.

Learn through play

In The Pod, children will engage in active play, imaginative play and sensory play as they interact with each other, digital content and objects within the physical world. We cannot wait to see the ways children and adults choose to interact and respond to the stimulus within The Pod!
