Hapee Kiddie and Renowned Puppeteer Wanlu Teaches Kids on Proper Brushing

As I've mentioned on my old blogs about the importance of pedia dental care, it is alarming that 97% f Filipino children suffer from dental cavities.That's why I made sure that the #FabSkye visit a pedia dentist as early as 1 year old and has been regularly visiting every 6 months. I am so proud that at 5 years old, my daughter is still cavity-free. Now, we are visiting more often simply because of the #FabSkye's underbite issue that we are trying to fix.

So I could confidently say that my daughter is part of the very very few 3% of the cavity-free Filipino children. But 97% is such a crazy huge number if you ask me. And overall 92.4% of Filipinos have cavities. Ang dami padin!

Students who suffer from cavities not only experience pain and discomfort but may also perform badly in school. Toothaches, developed because of the buildup of cavities, is the most common cause of absenteeism among schoolchildren. 

Brushing our teeth has become such a usual part of everyone’s daily routine that we often forget the importance of doing it properly. Like most things, it’s better to do them right as young as possible. That is why Hapee Kiddie launched their Choose to be Hapee with Hapee Kiddie school caravan with the goal of teaching our kids how to properly brush their teeth. With the tour’s unique and informative approach to teaching oral care, it showed the children that brush time need not be as dull.

The students were able to enjoy a special song number by Wanlu and Hapee during the Choose to be Hapee with Hapee Kiddie caravan tour.
One creative way of educating children about their oral care is through a puppet show, led by renowned ventriloquist, Wanlu and his trusty puppets, Nicolo and Hapee, where they further educated the students with their witty yet informative banter. 

Every moment in the caravan was memorable to me. The kids were even hugging the puppets after the show, especially Hapee. I think puppeteering really is a more creative and effective way of communicating with the children. In fact, you can see in the faces of the children that they really understand what’s happening and what the puppet is talking about because they react to what the puppet tells them,” shared Wanlu, who recently won the Ventriloquist of the Year in Asia awarded by the US-based International Ventriloquist Association.

Kids were taught how to properly brush their teeth through fun demonstrations. Through the Hapee Kiddie Toothy Tale videos, they learned to brush three times a day using a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and then brush for two minutes with circular motions. They then tested their newly-acquired knowledge with engaging games, where they were able to nab prizes! 

Choose to be Hapee with Hapee Kiddie school caravan tours all across Metro Manila, bringing joy and spreading happiness to nearly 4,000 young kids aged 5 to 7 years old in 15 public and private schools.
