Second Release in the Recess Research Series for Kids Now on YouTube

Hot Lava, the second in an ongoing series of animated shorts for children was released by RPR Studios today.


Hot Lava is part of the “Recess Research” animation series that sets out to both entertain children and provide them with information about traditional playground games. Set in ancient Pompeii, the short tells an imaginary story about the origins of the game “Hot Lava.” It is available on YouTube on the RPR Youth channel.

The Recess Research series was developed as a result of the concerns over child fitness. The first short in the series, TAG, was inspired by a nine-year-old girl in Pennsylvania who was concerned about no longer being able to play tag at recess. The goal of the series is to provide a new short every month that teaches kids about a playground game and encourages them to be active, while also being entertaining in the tradition of children’s cartoons.

RPR Studios (RPR) is a production company located just south of Saratoga Springs, NY dedicated to developing and producing quality content for various platforms of distribution including theatrical, digital and television. The company, formerly known as H.E.D.G.E. LLC, was founded in September 2012.
