GYTON GRANTLEY LENDS VOICE TO COVID-19 ANIMATION: THE BOOGERS ARE COMING

April 29, 2020

The animation featuring Toddle's fictional 'Little Monsters' is the second instalment from the organisation after launching its free e-storybook earlier this month to aid parents in explaining the dos and don'ts of COVID-19. 

Australian household name and father, Grantley has graced our television screens for many years and is more recently known for his work as Ron Weasley in Harry Potter and the Cursed Child.

"I really enjoyed recording this animation. Having two young children, The Boogers Are Coming is a great way to explain the current climate to them. I jumped at the opportunity to put my dad hat on and help bring the characters to life," said Grantley.

"Any parent to toddlers would be familiar with the barrage of questions. Dad, why can't I go outside? Why do I have to wash my hands AGAIN? Why can't I have my friends over? Honestly, the storybook and animation are great resources, and my kids love them." 

As confusion is a feeling shared by most during this pandemic and while the world adjusts to a new normal, young people can be left wondering what on earth is going on? Toddle's 'Little Monster' characters in The Boogers Are Coming are based on the six children's personality archetypes and aim to educate children about germs, how they spread and how they can stay healthy so that they feel empowered.

From Jampa, who is caring and friendly to Morph who is wild and tenacious, each little monster aims to connect with your child and be a relatable voice to explain the COVID-19 world.

Toddle Founder and CEO, Arthur Charlaftis said

"The pandemic has presented challenges to parents that we could never have been prepared for and explaining the current climate to our children can prove difficult. Our aim with the e-book and animation is to alleviate any worries about COVID-19 in a fun and positive way and help parents communicate with their children in a language they understand."

Free for parents to use, Toddle has every child care centre in Australia on the platform and promises to revolutionise the way we search, interact with and ultimately choose a child care centre for our families.
