Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes isn't a Canadian production, but that doesn't mean they don't enjoy Canadian animated content. When asked what Canadian animation they are most drawn to they responded by saying:
"We find inspiration in lots of animation art produced in Canada! Frédéric Back is just one of many animators that we love. His short film Crac is pure joy! It's hard to define what exactly makes it so charming - maybe it is lack of dialogues, or expressionistic drawing style with plenty of nice details, or maybe that it's fun to see the world through the eyes of a wheelchair!"

World Class 3D Animators Create a New Twist on Nursery Rhymes
Rediscover nursery rhymes with Dave and Ava! Starting today, traditional songs in high-quality, 3D animation are available on YouTube for free, with new videos every Thursday.
Dave and Ava Animation Studios is pleased to announce the launch of a series of educational videos for young children: “Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes”. These videos are available on the studio’s YouTube channel at: www.youtube.com/DaveAndAva.
All videos are created and produced in full HD resolution (1920x1080).
Nursery rhymes from Dave and Ava are designed to incorporate all four major areas of child development:
- Cognitive: Nursery rhymes use word patterns and introduce basic story sequences.
- Language: Children acquire new words, learn to recognize word patterns and rhythms, and hear the different sounds of consonants and vowels.
- Physical: Kids can dance along with the songs of Dave and Ava and improve large motor movement, balance, and coordination.
- Social-Emotional: Nursery rhymes with morals teach children that actions have consequences, and funny or silly nursery rhymes teach children to have a sense of humor.
“Dave and Ava Nursery Rhymes” are developed especially for young children, ages 1-4. Each episode features a toddler boy and a toddler girl dressed as a puppy and a kitten, and their friends: Philip the Mouse, Matilda the Sheep, Stella the Star, Itsy the Spider, Doctor Albert Monkerson, Mrs. Barbara Monkerson, Sam MacDonald, Bingo the Puppy, and many more.
The videos will be also available to download and watch offline via iOS and Android apps, which will follow in the near future.
