Kayne Peters - Kidzone Host

“Coming from South Auckland, I have strong aroha for the young children of Aotearoa and want them to have role models who make a positive effect on their lives. I want to encourage kids to try new things. We also have heaps of opportunities on the show for viewers to meet lots of other children from different backgrounds who live in Aotearoa New Zealand. If I can show children that they are loved and respected, then I’ll be happy.”

      Compare Kidzone to Australian kids’ TV. It is like Kidzone has a budget of $10 a week, compared to programs of such quality as Playschool Australia.
      I wish the presenters of Kidzone were less manically excited the entire time, and more interested in actually assuming their audience has some intelligence, and aren’t all aged 12 months.
      Once again, watch Playschool Australia to see how good a kids TV program could be. It has excellent craft-making, professionally written music, interesting trips to the real world, wonderful story-telling etc.
      And all of this without one single ‘YEE-YAH’, ‘My friend’, or pausing for 5 seconds after saying ‘How are you?’ when everyone knows that this is a TV show and that he cannot hear you.
      Rant over.
