Like many Indian homes our daily routine starts with Colgate . Since my childhood I have used Colgate toothpaste more than any other brand. I can very much relate to the recent TV Ads of Colgate where the moms speak about the importance of Colgate in their family. Our family too is so used to Colgate. Recently I received these Colgate covers where there are Magical Sea world Inside the cover, specially for the kids at home.
There were 4 different sets of Colgate covers which you need to collect. As I saw them I had a quick time travel, back to my childhood days where we were so eager to collect such paper cuttings and shapes from magazines & product packing’s. We used to store them like our most priced possesion. In today’s world where tablet and smart phones has invaded all such simple fun games, I’m really happy that Colgate has come up with something like this.
As I received the covers I quickly peeped to my neighbour’s house to look for their 4 year old son Varun, I knew he would be the best person to handle this one.
Even though he had his tab in his hands he was quite eager when I explained him about the magical sea world.
The first character he was most attracted to was Pirate Blackbeard who is going on a treasure hunt in deep sea. He was curious to know about the color changing octopus too. The talking Parrot along with the Pirate Blackbeard sails the ship across to find the treasure. They had got this treasure map with them and they found this beautiful castle in water ( Mean while Mr. varun was fascinated by mermaid and leaves the treasure hunting story and goes behind mermaid ) He wanted to know about the mermaid and underwater castle. He was in a true wonderland when I told him about mermaid. Then the Pirate Blackbeared finds the mermaid and they became good friends. The mermaid helps the Pirate Blackbeard to find the treasure which was hidden in a ship wreck.( Varun din’t want Sadie to help Pirat Blackbeared he liked the mermaid more who is living in the under water castle)
This was the story he told me. He was also excited to know about the sea turtles who can grow upto 300 Kg, he was amazed to see the colorful sea horses, the poisonous and ugly looking lion fish, the huge fish barracuda, The star fish reminds him of his last visit to aquarium. The cute looking crab and puffer fish are his friends now.
Even though Varun was fully engaged with his video games and tab he left them all when he heard about magical sea world. I love the curiosity in kids to know and learn more. I thank Colgate who came up with such simple ideas and fun games by which you can divert kids attention from the invading gadgets and get them involved in such fun activities where they can play, grow and learn at the same time..
