Welcome to Kolohe Time, the children’s show that teaches Hawaiian values to families in Hawaii and abroad. Come learn about our beliefs, like Aloha, through musical episodes and other engaging experiences like coloring books and lesson plans for teachers!
Young or old, you can learn how to sing our songs, play them on the ukulele, and spread values that make the world a better place. So, what time is it? It’s Kolohe Time!
What is Kolohe Time?
Kolohe Time is an ever-evolving project created by Vaihi Music. With musical episodes, ukulele lessons, sing-a-longs, storybooks, coloring books, and even lesson plans for students, Kolohe Time offers an important experience to kids everywhere. By teaching Hawaiian values through children’s media, Kolohe Time provides cultural representation and gives our kids something to relate to—whether they speak English, Ōlelo Hawaiʻi, or both!
So, what are you waiting for? Check out our videos and resources below to discover new and engaging ways to teach and entertain your kids this year!

Kolohe Time is more than just a fun online TV show for kids. It’s an engaging educational experience for children that incorporates Ōlelo Hawaiʻi and English into the songs, episodes, and books! We offer all our books in two languages, and parents and teachers can receive both coloring and storybooks to give their kids.
Our books are best suited for K-5 children, but anyone can enjoy a good story or a relaxing time coloring. Students do not need to know Hawaiian values or Ōlelo Hawaiʻi to learn from or understand our stories.
Kolohe Time is meant to be integrated into students’ educational experience. Our intention with Kolohe Time is to teach values that benefit our children and the world they live in. So, our team at Vaihi Music developed lesson plans to help K-5 students with their emotional wellbeing and healthy decision-making skills. These books are primarily for teachers, but we encourage parents to read them, too!
