A parent’s testimonial

“A great discovery for talking to the little ones about illnesses, significant aches, and pains. The content is both relevant and fun. Our little boy loves it and goes on to explain where his otitis comes from. 😉A real nugget to help children understand their health, and a cartoon that’s just as reassuring for children as it is for parents!”
