New Website Uses Characters and Song to Encourage Children to Brush their Teeth and Eat their Veggies
The battle to get kids to brush their teeth and eat their fruits and veggies just got a bit easier. LearnAlong (http://www.ilearnalong.com) has launched a website featuring digital downloads for healthy children. The company markets an oral hygiene teaching aid called The Brush-Along Song, and Meet The Frugies, an e-book featuring 20 fruit and vegetable characters designed by a legendary Mad Magazine artist.
"Our products teach while they entertain and tackle real life concerns," said LearnAlong founder Mitchell Erick.
The Brush-Along Song was written in consultation with a registered dental hygienist and features a toe-tapping mix of rock, rap and wacky sound effects. The song teaches proper brushing technique, and at 2-1/2 minutes, encourages kids to brush longer and better than ever.
The song has been featured in the catalog of the American Dental Hygienists Association and has been distributed in CD form to thousands of elementary schools in eleven states. "The Brush-Along Song is probably the only oral hygiene teaching aid that actually makes brushing fun," say Erick. "Now kids will want to brush their teeth!"
LearnAlong's e-book Meet The Frugies features fruit and vegetable characters designed by Mort Drucker, famous for illustrating Mad Magazine's movie satires. The book introduces kids to a dancing strawberry, a crybaby onion, a patriotic apple, a singing peach, a carrot that sees into the future, and many more characters designed to spark a healthy interest in fruits and vegetables.
Both The Brush-Along Song and Meet The Frugies are available as digital downloads from the ilearnalong.com website which features a video sample of the song and sample pages from the e-book. The Brush-Along Song is priced at $3.99. Meet The Frugies is $1.99.
