Kai-Lan Chow is a big-hearted and adventure loving preschooler. Kai-Lan can speak two languages...English and Mandarin Chinese. She is more than willing to teach your child about her language, her culture and her friends. Let your children spend time with this loving, thoughtful and kind character from Nick Jr.

YeYe is Kai-lan's grandfather. YeYe comes from China and teaches Kai-Lan the beautiful traditions he grew up with. He is thoughtful and kind and also his granddaughter. He helps to guide Kai-Lan to find the answers to questions by herself.

Rintoo is a boisterous tiger. He is five years old and he is also one of Kai-Lans friends. If you watch the show you know about the "Tiger-tiger roar" handshake these two friend share. Rintoo is adventurous and loves to pounce ahead of the group. He may be brave and loud, but he is also a very kind and caring friend.

Tolee is a koala who loves pandas. He is five years old and he worries too much. Tolee thinks before he speaks or acts. Still, Tolee has lots of fun with his friends, Kai-Lan, Rintoo, Hoho and Lulu.

Hoho is Kai-Lan's youngest friend. He is a three year old monkey and like most monkeys he is full of energy. Hoho likes to be the star, always in the center of the attention.He is quite a jumper and is usually jumping on his friends. He also likes to act like a DJ and play with his turntables.

Lulu is six. A dancing pink rhino who likes to fly by balloon isn't your everyday cartoon character, but she fits in with her friends. Lulu likes to host tea parties and enjoys playing house with her friends. Her friends can always count on Lulu to help them out when they need her. She is the strongest of all the friends.

Mr. Sun gets the show started. Kai-Lan wakes him up every episode to start the day. Your child has probably helped Mr. Sun rise on at least one occasion. Mr. sun sends smiling sun fizzies that tickle!

The Ants live in a corner of Kai-Lans yard in a huge mini-metropolis called Ant City. Of course, only ants live there. San San is the leader of the ants and has two close friends, Bubu and Fufu. The ants deliver mail, build things and enjoy playing with Kai-Lan and all her wonderful friends.
