Studies have shown, definitively, that children who grow their own vegetables, are more likely to eat them. And now Growums gives kids the tools they need to get started with specially-themed garden kits that combine learning and fun with an unique and exciting online educational experience to grow vegetables and herbs; all with a little help from a colorful cast of herb and vegetable characters!
Kids can choose from six fun kits including Herb Garden, Pizza Garden, Salad Garden, Stir-fry Garden, Taco Garden and Ratatouille Garden to grow a real garden with virtual world fun. Each garden kit features unique, magical coco or peat pellets that make planting and growing practically foolproof. Kids start by going to http://www.growums.com/ to register their garden and follow the colorful characters in a virtual garden world that shows them how to care for their vegetables. This animated step-by-step series of mini videos are updated every ten days with tips on what to expect next and how to care for the seedlings. With a little help and information from Tomicio the tomato, Frank Cilantro, Belle Peppa, Ice Berg the lettuce wrapper and, of course, Elvis Parsley and more; in a matter of weeks kids will be able to harvest fresh vegetables and herbs to create nutritious meals.
