Maya & Miguel 10th Anniversary Prize Pack Giveaway



Pioneering Series from Scholastic,
Maya & Miguel, Celebrates 10th Anniversary With iTunes Debut!

Six Volume Launch Helps Mark National Hispanic Heritage Month

New York, NY, September 22, 2014 – "¡Feliz cumpleaƱos!" To celebrate its exciting 10th anniversary milestone, Scholastic Media’s award-winning TV series, Maya & Miguel, makes its debut on iTunes – just in time for National Hispanic Heritage Month (September 15-October 15). For the very first time, all 65 episodes of the energetic animated adventures of 10-year-old twins Maya and Miguel Santos are now available for download on iTunes in a collection featuring six volumes for hours of hilarious entertainment – and multicultural learning – anytime, anywhere! In addition, fans can download a very special episode from Maya & Miguel: Vol. 1, “Mala Suerte,” for free until October 13.

“For more than a decade, young viewers, particularly English language learners, have strongly connected with Maya & Miguel, and we’re delighted to introduce even more kids and families to the spirited sibling stars and their engaging escapades with the upcoming launch on iTunes,” said Deborah A. Forte, President, Scholastic Media and executive producer and creator of the show. “Maya & Miguel was a groundbreaking success when it first premiered in 2004 and the show, with its emphasis on the importance of multiculturalism, friendship and family, remains just as relevant with today’s children and parents.”

As the Hispanic population in the U.S. continues to increase – Census Bureau data released in June estimates the numbers have grown to 54 million as of July 1, 2013 – it is more important than ever that all children see themselves and their cultures represented in the media.  The long-running Maya & Miguel TV series, airing on PBS KIDS (check local listings), chronicles the exuberant exploits of the dynamic duo, Maya and Miguel, along with their relatives and friends, set against the backdrop of a culturally-rich neighborhood. Showcasing a positive portrayal of Latino family life, language and cultures, the series aims to promote the value of a diverse society while supporting English language learning.
In addition to iTunes, episodes of Maya & Miguel are available for digital download in the LeapFrog App Center.

The 411:

Since we are raising a bilingual family mostly due to the fact that my children's Abuela's speak Spanish 80% of the time, we love shows like Maya & Miguel, Dora and Diego that explore different cultures and introduce our children to Spanish even if it is just a few words. 

Maya & Miguel are great for my kids now that they are past the preschool/elementary age. Though the show only ran for 4 seasons, Maya and Miguel centers around twins (brother and sister) who are preteen age.

Maya is way more adventurous than her level headed brother Miguel and they have a ton of multicultural friends. We don't live in a melting pot of cultures and shows like these are really important because much of the world is a mish mash of people from different areas and I want my kids to see that everyone is the same. 

We are thrilled to let you know that all 65 episodes of the energetic animated adventures of 10-year-old twins Maya and Miguel Santos are now available for download on iTunes in a collection featuring six volumes for hours of hilarious entertainment – and multicultural learning – anytime, anywhere!
