Introducing clubdirtgirlworld.

dirtgirl is passionate about ‘doing’ things to help the planet.

Everyday she meets other kids that feel the same.

Why not start a club, where kids who care for the planet can
hang out, have a say, get involved and have fun.
And that’s exactly what she did

From the creators

We live in the middle of nowhere Australia and are first time TV creators...so you can imagine how excited we are about the success of dirtgirlworld.

We still can't belive it and pinch ourselves most day that so many kids and their families are watching dirtgirlworld every day.

The project has sold to over 110 countries world wide and has been translated into many languages including French, Korean and Polish.

People always ask us what made us think up the idea and so we have popped some thoughts together to explain how it all arrived in our hearts and then  made it to your screens.

This production has been a wild ride which has involved bringing in teams of people to various locations for specific periods of time.

Singing in Heaven

An essential and exciting element of 'dirtgirlworld' is the music. The impetus for the dirtgirlworld project is the initial album and how it was received when released. The industry loved it but more importantly, the kids that have the CD are a passionate, loyal and obsessive gang.

Mar 1, 2006

dirtgirl is passionate about ‘doing’ things to help the planet. 
Everyday she meets other kids that feel the same. 

Why not start a club, where kids who care for the planet can 
hang out, have a say, get involved and have fun. 
And that’s exactly what she did

Made for the wee set, not only is it a place for planet loving preschoolers… 
it’s also an early intro to the world of social media. 
At club dirtgirlworld, these digi natives create a username and password and 
an avatar. They can save, send, like, download, delete, review and record. 
It’s uber cool and uber safe in this real people moderated online playspace.

Designed around the forest at the back of dirtgirl’s place 
this beautiful and magical setting 
lets little voices say big things, 
make planet wishes, 
celebrate the great things they are doing 
and start an actionist attitude that we hope sticks as they grow. 
It’s ad free. 
It’s audio rather than text driven. 
It’s made for little kids by people with little kid hearts. 
It’s club dirtgirlworld!
