We're All Ready To Play

Take one precocious preschooler who speaks both English and Mandarin, a goofy grandpa who loves surprises, a tiger, koala, monkey and a pink rhino, and you’re destined for adventure. Kai-Lan loves to explore her neighborhood and family, a colorful, exotic world of dumplings, dragons, and the wonders of everyday life.

• Karen •

Karen based the series on her experiences growing up in a Chinese-American household. The first character of the series that she drew was Kai-Lan at age 5. It was a persona that Karen knew quite well - Kai-Lan is the Chinese name that Karen was given at birth. And “Ni Hao” means “Hello” in Mandarin. See, you’re learning already!
