The BBC is to revamp its digital channels CBeebies and CBBC, with "fewer but higher quality" programmes.
"CBBC is due for refreshing, we were losing four to five-year-olds, especially boys," said CBeebies creative director Michael Carrington.
He said there would be "fewer, bigger and better" programmes and boys had already started returning with shows like Lunar Jim and Underground Ernie.
CBeebies, aimed at pre-schoolers, will now target those up to the age of six.
