Jangro has created its own hand washing heroes to help young children understand the importance of hygiene. Four animated characters called the Jangronauts have been brought to life on a range of hand washing dispensers, toilet tissue dispensers and hand drying units for washrooms at schools, nurseries, restaurants and shopping centres.
Known as Jimmy, Jess, Jack and Jade, the hand washing heroes are also featured on a new website and digital animation packed with fun and educational resources to appeal to young audiences. The website - www.jangronauts.co.uk - includes downloadable activities including a teachers' pack, colouring sheets, a story book, masks, posters and mirror stickers.
Youngsters can learn more about the Jangronaut Jimmy and his adventures in outer space, Jess in her hot air balloon, Jack riding elephants and racing leopards and, finally, Jade swimming in the ocean.
Joanne Gilliard, operations director at Jangro, said: “We're delighted to introduce Jimmy, Jess, Jack and Jade - the Jangronauts, our new hand washing heroes. They've been created to help young children understand the importance of personal hygiene in a fun and educational way. Not only do they appear on dispensers and dryers but we've also created a range of supporting materials to help children really understand the importance of hygiene for their health and well being. The Jangronauts reflect our continuing commitment to delivering innovation in the market place, providing a wide range of value-added services to clients.”
