The JiggiJump television episodes take children on a musical fantasy adventure where they run, jump, stretch and actively participate along with Judy, David and their sidekick kangaroo, JJ.
Interest in the series was peaked when over half a million children across Canada began using JiggiJump in schools as a fun fitness break.
JiggiJump was developed in partnership with experts in children’s fitness. The initiative has had huge success in inspiring young children to take the first steps on the path of a healthy, active life.
“We wanted to make this easy and accessible,” said series co-star and co-creator, David Gershon. “That’s why we’re taking live JiggiJump shows out of the theatre for two months and bringing them right to the doorstep of Ontario families.”
With the support of the Ontario Ministry of Tourism, Culture and Sport, 12,000 families will also take home free JiggiJump CDs, resource information, and a JiggiJump Adventure Card.
“The card is great,” said Judy Adelman Gershon, who co-stars with David on JiggiJump. “Parents can let their kids try a whole range of activities at no cost before deciding if there’s a fit.”
