What do YOU think of our new look?

Newsround's new opening titles

It's all change at Newsround! We've got a funky new titles and a fresh new look in the studio too.

The show's theme tune has been a given an update too - it's a remix of the show's first ever music.

So are the changes for the better, or did you prefer the old look?

What do you like best, the music, the set, or is it all brilliant?!?!

Rolly, 11, Birmingham, England

"I really like the new look!"

Elissa, 8, Nottingham, England

Hannah, 11, Portsmouth, England

"I think it's very fast-paced but cool. It needed a revamp because it got boring after a while. When I first saw it, I thought it was a trailer for another show but I was glad it was NR. IT ROCKS!"

Reece, 8, Glasgow, Scotland

"I like it; I think that it's modern and funky and better than the last one."

Rachael, 12, Sussex, England

"The title goes too quick. It's like the makers of this made a one-minute version and had to squash it down to 14 seconds. If you didn't watch the beginning, you would not know it was Newsround."

Matthew, 13, Berkshire, England

"I think it is a fab and funky new look!!!"

"LOVE IT!!!!"

Maebh, 10, Ireland

"I love it! It's cool, funky and much, much better! Thumbs up!"

Jake, 11, Essex, England

"The titles are really good; the rainbow spaghetti is colourful and crazy! But the website looks a bit odd now compared to the show, with no squiggles."

Alex, 12, London, England

"I preferred the old one, personally. The old one was good because you knew what you were watching; I think this one is confusing. I like the music though!"

Katie, 12, Scotland

"It is really colourful; I really like it."

Yasmin, 9, Belfast, Northern Ireland

"I quite like this one because it looks sort of futuristic and so the logo shows you that if it's 10 years on or 50, Newsround will always be there, but better."

Moperl, 14, Glasgow, Scotland

"It doesn't do anything for me! The look is wrong, I don't like the music, I just hate it!"

"I think it is alright, but I like the old one better."

Ellenowl, 12, Gloucester, England

"I think the new look is fab. But I think the old one was better, but change is good. I will just have to get used to it. I will probably like it in a couple of weeks."

Jodi, 12, Plymouth, England

"I really didn't like the new look Newsround. The music was very non-descript, and the title sequence was no way near as good as the old one. I also didn't like the way that images were appearing in the screen behind the presenter - it was hard to see, and the music playing was irritating. Please change it back!!!!!"

Mandy, 13, North Yorkshire, England

"It's awesome and much cooler than the old one."

Joseph, 9, Oxford, England

"I think it is funky, but a bit hard to get used to. But after a week or two I will get used to it."

Steve, 10, Northern Ireland

"I think it's like a computer at the start and very funky at the end!"

Kerr, 10, Scotland

"It's too much. I prefer the old one."

Kester, 11, England

"I think they were both great, but I prefer the old one."

"I love the new look; it's really modern."

"It's slightly weird! I preferred your old look."

Lucy, 11, Brighton, England

"I think it's lush and it's really retro! Love it!"

Sophie, 15, Scotland

"I love it, it's just so funky!!"

Chris, 12, Somerset, England

"I like it but the N and the R don't stand out much but it's really cool."

Beth, 12, Bolton, England

"I think it's alright. The N and the R could stand out a bit more, but overall it's cool."

Daniel, 12, London, England

"Yeah, it's cool and colourful, but I liked the other one. That was awesome."

Lisa, 12, Bridgend, Wales

"I think it is really, and I mean really, good. It's bright, colourful and telling people this is Newsround. I never miss a show and whoever came up with the new look they did a good job."

Farzana, 11, Blackburn, England

"When I first saw Newsround I was shocked and I did not think it was Newsround until Sonali came up."

Zahida, 10, Blackburn, England

"I think Newsround should have come up with this years ago."

"It's just brilliant. To be honest it made me like Newsround even more than I do now. The music is really cool. I love it all round."

Catherine, 15, Crawley, England

"Honestly, I thought it was a bridge or something. I much preferred the old one."

Rosie, 13, Polegate, England

"It's great, I love it."

Freya, 12, Lancaster, England

"I couldn't even tell it was an N. I thought it was a castle or something! Not very clear, I don't think..."

Laura, 9, Nuneaton, England

"I think it's cool! It looks a lot better than the other one and more kids will like it more!"

Bethany, 13, Argyll, Scotland

"It's OK, but I think that it doesn't really look like an N or an R, but the colours are good."

Alana, 11, Manchester, England

"It's modern and colourful, much better than the old one!"

Bethan, 14, Gloucester, England

"To be honest, I don't really like it. I like'd it back as the old one. It's normal, good and the new one is a bit too bright and it's a bit too much."

Lina, 10, London, England

"I think the title is better because of the effects. 8/10."

Fatimah, 14, Birmingham, England

"I love it! Fab and funky!"

"I really like everything, apart from the music. I prefer the old music."

James, 11, Oxted, England

"I think it is very very very very interesting and it is very bright."

Junaid, 10, Herts, England

"I don't like it... I couldn't even tell it was an N at first. First impressions was that it was a germ under a microscope."

Rebecca, 13, Kent, England
