Salt Lake City, UT (PRUnderground) December 12th, 2022
Dalibor Menicanin’s creativity and love for his daughter led to the creation of Leigha Marina, a YouTube sensation that has reached nearly 300,000 subscribers since its creation.
Menicanin, a single father, embarked on a creative project with his daughter, Leigha, as his inspiration. The journey began in 2016 when he was running a full-time business as a full-time parent. He says the idea for Leigha Marina struck him as he was researching common parenting topics such as how much sleep a child should get, how to know if a child is ill, and best practices for childhood diet. Menicanin realized he could pass all of his knowledge along to parents, especially to other single parents.
He named the project Leigha Marina, after his daughter, and began with a website for giving parents advice through articles. Now, the Leigha Marina brand has grown to also include party invites, baby shower cards, and a YouTube channel that has gone viral.
Earlier this year, the Leigha Marina YouTube channel received the Silver Play Button Award from YouTube for reaching 100,000 subscribers. Now, the channel is on its way to triple that mark with 260,000+ subscribers as of today.
The Leigha Marina YouTube channel features all-original nursery rhymes and kids’ songs produced by Menicanin himself. Each video features the adorable Leigha Marina logo, a penguin named Bebo. Bebo was Leigha’s baby nickname and means “baby”.
Bebo and other precious Leigha Marina characters sing, dance, and have fun, helping to soothe and entertain children. The Leigha Marina YouTube channel has become a go-to for parents and caregivers of small children and offers live streams, as well as a library brimming with original nursery rhymes and songs for children.
Some of the most popular videos from Leigha Marina have millions of views. For instance, “Twinkle Twinkle Little Star” has 30+ million views, and “Rockabye Baby” has over 22+ million views to date. Leigha Marina songs are also available on Spotify, Apple Music, and Amazon.
“It’s an honor and a privilege, as a single dad, to do something so special for my daughter and then to see so many other parents and caregivers enjoy it with their children,” said Menicanin.
The Leigha Marina website has also grown to include colorful, unique invitation, Christmas, and baby shower cards; bookmarks; free coloring pages; and apparel. More information can be found at https://leighamarina.com/.
