About Us

Bounce Patrol aim to get kids up and bouncing! We are a children’s entertainment group from Melbourne, Australia who make catchy, fun and educational music videos for preschoolers.

Launched in 2013, Bounce Patrol stars five energetic, live-action performers – Jacinta, Jackson, Alyssa, Will and Rachel. We write, develop and produce original music for every video. Written for the whole family to enjoy, the songs are simple enough for children to understand, while being catchy and modern so parents can enjoy humming along too. Far from a passive viewing experience, our bouncy beats and lively performers inspire kids to get on their feet and dance along with us, engaging both their minds and bodies, and shaking out some energy!

Our videos include enriching songs (such as “Happy Hands” to teach toddlers about the pandemic and good hand hygiene), modern twists on classic nursery rhymes (such as “Baby Shark”, or “The Ants Go Marching”), and songs to build school readiness and develop early-years literacy and numeracy familiarity (such as the episodes “Alphabet Farm”, “Colours Everywhere” or “Counting to 10 in Four Languages”). Filmed entirely on green screen, we transport our performers to a new, fully illustrated world in every episode, delighting and captivating our young audience.

Created and directed by showrunner Shannon Jones, Bounce Patrol has grown to become the largest YouTube channel in Australia, with the most subscribers of any Aussie YouTube channel, and attracting hundreds of millions of views every month.
