MIRAMAR, Fla. /Florida Newswire/ — The television viewing habits of children and adults alike are changing on an almost daily basis. Viewing options abound and parents and teachers are taking notice. Customizing a child's viewing habits is becoming easier and easier and Silva Animation Studio, Inc., the producer of Color with Leo(R), is reaching new audiences through these technologies.
Color with Leo(R) is an educational and animated series targeting children from Pre-K through first grade. The central character, Leo, sets off on a series of adventures to learn more about the beauty and mysteries of art and science. In the first episode, Leo encounters a young Christopher Columbus who explains how ships float and move. Leo continues to draw the ships using basic geometric shapes and children are exposed to basic concepts in science, while getting entertained too.
This first episode in a projected series is currently available for viewing on several alternative viewing channels that include Ameba TV, also referred to as Smart Kids TV; through an application available on smart TVs; and on Apple and Android devices. It is also available for viewing on Kidobi where its technology automatically adapts to a child's unique skill level and developmental stage.
"Parents and teachers really need to take advantage of all of these terrific tools to customize their children's viewing. Of course, parents and teachers want kids to learn, but they want them to have fun too," Norman Silva, founder of Silva Animation Studio, says. "These various outlets and technologies make it easy. And, Color with Leo(R) makes it even easier by providing useful support material such as printable lessons, activities and coloring pages on its website."
Additionally, with outlets such as Ameba TV, kids do not have to wait for their favorite programs to come on at a specific time; they can view them whenever and wherever they want to. There are no annoying commercials and it's easy for kids to navigate and for parents to control. The content is fun and engaging and encourages kids to learn at their own pace when watching programs such as Color with Leo(R).
"Our goal is to assist in molding the next generation of artists and creative thinkers," Silva says.
