Flik Flak brings its time-tested lessons on telling time to Modhesh Fun City

ItCOs a watch-making brand dedicated solely to children, and it has set camp at the summer special venue for children. At this zone, the children not only get to while their time away colouring, drawing and making new friends, but they also learn the art of telling time if they donCOt already know it. If they are old enough to know the hour of the day, they can win some goodies for the same.

Created in 1987, Flik Flak was designed to be more than just a simple childrenCOs watch. It is notably the first ever brand of childrenCOs watch to introduce the concept of teaching time, allowing this learning experience to be transformed into something amusing for children.

Karman Carermencite, one of the staff at the Flik Flak zone explained, C[pounds sterling]As well as developing very trendy watches in a childrenCOs world where princesses rub shoulders with pirates and explorers, the Flik Flak brand has also developed a method of teaching children to tell the time, which is what we are here to share with the little guests to our zone. It is an educational concept that enables children as young as four to tell the time. The principle developed in collaboration with educationalists and psychologists introduces the characters Flik and Flak.C[yen]

In childrenCOs words, Karman explained to her audience of young learners, C[pounds sterling]Flik, the blue and white C[pounds sterling]big brotherC[yen] minute hand, is taller and older than Flak and, of course, he can walk faster. He moves around the 60-minute dial while his little sister. Flak, the red C[pounds sterling]little sisterC[yen] hour hand, moves more slowly on her short legs, stepping forward one little hour at a time! They run behind each other, every step they make indicating the time.C[yen]

C[pounds sterling]Flak, the little girl, is the hour hand that should be read first (ladies first); then Flik, the older brother, indicates the minutes. And that is how you read the time!C[yen] her class concluded with a loud applause from little hands.

Always closely in touch with childrenCOs fads and crazes, the Flik Flak brand makes telling the time fun with colour-coded hour and minute numbers. The Flik flak time zone not only teaches time but also organises interactive games on the Modhesh Fun stage daily wherein participants and winners both receive gift packs from the brand.
