According to a study made by a toothpaste manufacturer, 50% of children six years of age have never brushed their teeth. There could be many reasons behind this disappointing statistic: distracted parents, imperfect education, or behavioural issues. There is, however, an easy solution to the problem: kids have to want to brush their teeth. And to want to, they need to think that it’s fun.
The Kimi Clock animation, based on a short story, is a carefully conceptualized series starring friendly cartoon beavers living in Kluane National Park, Canada. The animation is a fun and interesting way to encourage children to get excited about brushing their teeth, and the show spreads other positive messages as well. An enjoyable cartoon rather than an educational video, Kimi Clock has the potential to spread important messages about children’s health, the environment, and other topics. It gives information to the kids themselves, thus bypassing any roadblocks like uninterested parents or bad schooling. It could also be an aid for children with behavioural issues, presenting oral hygiene and learning in a light that is appealing and fun rather than a chore.
