Young children learn by imitating parents and need attention from these VIPs in their life. Parents of young children juggle overwhelming livelihood, domestic, and parental responsibilities. They do not have the time or energy to seek out information

Ruju commented on The Puppet Mobile

Thanks for your feedback! Our idea was itself informed by established practices in developing world countries. We were aware that traveling theater, including puppet shows, were and are very popular in rural communities, especially before the advent of television. And in our experience, itinerant variety shows and theater are fixtures during festivals, holidays, religious days, etc. in India, China and Burma.

The vehicle delivering messages (puppet theater) is a constant but the message can be infinitely modified to suit the unique needs and challenges of different locales, cultures, demographics. Topics, takeaways (material for parents to review at their own convenience), performance times can all be customized.

We hope this answers your question. Let us know if you have any other questions. It really helps us to think about our idea in a new light.
