Hi-5 is my daughter’s all-time favorite show from morning to afternoon till night. She actually dances as the cast started to dance and clap and sing. So imagine how excited I am when I got an invitation from TV5 to the press launch of Hi5 Philippines, so without any hesitation, I say “YES” to them. Thank you Mommy Pehpot and Sir Neil!

“We are proud to partner with Hi-5 World in introducing to millions of Filipino kids a local version of this highly interactive edutainment show. We are up to the challenge of producing the show that is at par with global standards,” said Jane Basas, Media 5 Corporation president.
Launched in Australia in 1999, Hi-5 rapidly grew in popularity over the years. It has won three Logie Awards for Most Outstanding Children's Program, five ARIA Awards for Best Children's Album and five Australian DVD and Video Industry Awards, among other achievements. It was then that Hi-5 started expanding its reach by franchising the show across North America, Europe, Australasia, Latin America, and Asia.
However, this is the first time that the Hi-5 franchise assembled an entirely new cast for the localization of the show in Asia. The Filipino version of the musical group is currently one of the only two casts for Hi-5, the other one being the Australian cast.
So get ready to dance and sing along the new cast of Hi5 Philippines Gerard, Aira, Rissy, Alex and Fred. Watch how the Hi-5 gang makes learning exciting and fun for kids through songs and dancing. Don’t miss Hi-5 Philippines, airing weekdays at 8:30 a.m. starting June 15, only on TV5.
