popnolly_320.jpgIn less than three minutes, this adorable kids' video from the Pop'n'Olly series explains different types of families.

The host and creator of the show is Olly Pike, a British actor and filmmaker who has performed in the West End and co-starred in the BAFTA-winning CBBC kids' game shows Trapped and Trapped: Ever After. His children's vlog series, Pop'n'Olly, stars himself and a balloon named Pop.

Aimed at four- to seven-year-olds, it also involves "a lot of mess and general bedlam," according to Pike's website. Most of the episodes center around a fun craft or activity, but this one discusses the many types of families one might encounter, including ones headed by same-sex parents, different-sex parents, single parents, and ones with grandparents or others as guardians.

Enjoy it with your family, share with other families and teachers looking for an age-appropriate way to talk about families with kids, and catch all of Pop'n'Olly on their YouTube channel.

Watch, after the break.
