Parents can now enjoy singing along to Raggs rockin’ versions of classics such as “Five Little Monkeys,” “Old MacDonald, and “London Bridge is Falling Down” with their children on a safe, ad-free platform.
“We’re delighted to introduce Raggs to Asia, and Kids World is our first step planned for this dynamic and growing part of the world,” Toni Steedman, creator of Raggs and President of Blue Socks Media LLC commented. “The Raggs nursery rhymes and Kids World are a great fit!”
