Toddle has joined forces with Australian Actor Gyton Grantley to narrate our children’s book, 'The Boogers Are Coming.'
The animation, featuring Toddle's fictional 'Little Monsters,' aims to explain the dos and dont's of COVID-19 to children.
Australian household name and father, Gyton Grantley is well known for his work on House Husbands and more recently he performed 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."
The colourful '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. Find out more about the six monsters here.
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."
The Boogers Are Coming animation and e-book, including full-colour version and colouring-in book, can be downloaded here.
Free for parents to use, Toddle has every child care centre in Australia on the platform and promises to revolutionise the way parents search, interact with and ultimately choose a child care centre.
