Dream with us…
Imagine being involved with the launch of the next BIG THING in children’s entertainment. Similar in scale to Dora, but for older kids (7-12 year olds), supporting them in creating the world they want to live in, and seeding within them a culture of peace, mindfulness, compassion, and cooperation. A culture guided by love.
Each of Pacha’s stories are a hero’s journey not only for herself but also for humanity, in which positive change overcomes inertia. Hollywood and popular Young Adult books have cornered the market on stories of a dystopian future; its time to provide kids with the positive counter balance.
Each story has a dream theme that speaks to how a child relates to an aspect of the external world. The first book is about relationship to nature. The next one will be about relationship to food – Pacha and her lil’ bro Paco travel to Foodlandia in their dreams. Future stories will explore other compelling themes, including energy, water, ancient Egyptian culture, China, inside the body, the cosmos, and crystals.
The dream theme drives the story world, the story itself, partnerships, and character development. Like the Wonderful World of Oz, each dream character has a counterpart in Pacha’s waking life and a clue that binds them together. E.g., MC Plat has a sweatband like Paco. Mama and Hum the hummingbird have similar voices and both treat Pacha motherly. Pacha’s fifth grade teacher Ms. Hoot looks like an owl.
We design new PJs with the characters from the story.
Each story is designed to impart certain values, delve into specific aspects of social and emotional learning, and to raise the awareness of the various perspectives and issues surrounding the theme. Each story becomes a season for the television show.
Based on our test marketing it appears that kids across ethnic, gender, and geographic lines can relate on some level with Pacha and her dream adventures. Kids experience her in the classroom through books and activities, home schooling and self directed learning, at events, and at home with books, apps, and tv.
They will get their parents to buy alot of Pacha merchandise, which will all be relatively earth-friendly. Kids will also challenge their parents to think differently.
We recommend that the entire family read the book, separately or together as appropriate, have conversations, and do the activities. It brings the family together and helps reinforce family values.
Imagine being part of something like this. Imagine making it possible.
