Playtime: An animated short story
MANILA, Philippines – For children, nothing is more fun than playtime.
It is the highlight of their afternoon and weekends. It is when they get to learn, move, and stretch and interact with other children at the same time.
Parents, are you giving your child enough time to play? If yes, are you sure that he or she is getting enough of the right kind of playtime?
In this animated short story, we tell the story of Carlo, a 9-year-old boy who loves playing games just like any other kid. His mom and dad do their best to make sure that he has everything he needs.
But as it turns out, there might be something missing.
