What We Do


Gizmo's Woof Chat is an informative children's network to meet the intended entertainment and educational goals. We do this by bridging storytelling, educational themes, and live-action puppetry appealing to children ages five to ten.

In each six-minute episode, one or more characters present a conflict for the Woof Chat News Team to solve as friends. Together, they turn to Gizmo's Woof Chat to seek out exciting news stories, on-location interviews, and informative guest experts who share insightful ways to approach their concerns.

Then, equipped with new knowledge and inspiration, they come together for humorous or touching endings.

Navigating Challenges

As a mindful surfer champion, Gizmo lives by his motto, "Just Surf IT!". He proves that no matter what size colossal waves he encounters, he can surf them!


Gizmo's Woof Chat happens at Tide Rider Beach! It's a fun place to be, learn, and discover solutions to foster kindness and compassion for others.

Ocean Conservation

Gizmo's a surfer pup who can't afford to doggie paddle when a problem needs a solution! He calls upon his friends to clean up the beach to save sea life and make a difference in our planet's future.


Our vision is for puppetry to work universally across diverse cultures and age groups. We aim to help kids to learn about life and relationships, celebrate their differences, and grow their imagination.


Our mission is that Gizmo's Woof Chat episodes bring innovative and impactful learning content for kids. We do this with books and media for home and classroom that kids will want to join in and share!

Gizmo 4 President Children's Book

America meets canine presidential candidate Gizmo, a fun-loving surfing dog who is sending a refreshingly positive message for parents and educators to discuss the elections and voting with youth ages five to ten. The brilliantly illustrated story dives into bullying, ocean cleanup, overcoming challenges, and relevant kid-sized themes about the election process. 

The third book in the Gizmo and Friends series, written by Suzanne Kline and Dulce Da Costa, LCSW, was released in 2020 as a companion to Gizmo's Woof Chat virtual live-puppet presidential debate. Giz Kids Foundation partnered in bringing virtual class trip programs to elementary schools and at-home classrooms during the global pandemic, where over 250,000 students participated in Gizmo's presidential run for president of Tide Rider Beach. The platform taught about the importance of taking action for coastal conservation and protecting sea life, an issue of significant concern to citizens worldwide.
