A Day With Naturals by Watsons and Tapirs!

In-conjunction with the “World Tapir Day”, held annually on 27 April, NATURALS by Watsons, a brand under Watsons, raised over RM30,524 through a nationwide campaign in-collaboration with Pocotee & Friends and the Ecotourism and Conservation Society Malaysia (ECOMY). The “World Tapir Day” aims to raise awareness of the endangered Malayan Tapir that inhabit Malaysian Peninsula, Myanmar and Thailand, and the island of Sumatra.

Resonating to the brand name “Naturals”, the “We Hug Tapir” campaign is the second consecutive effort by Watsons, Pocotee & Friends and the Ecotourism and Conservation Society Malaysia (ECOMY). The campaign aimed to showcase the Malayan Tapir as the primary focus to educate the public, more so the next generation, on the importance of conserving Malaysia’s heritage, the forest and wildlife and understanding that conserving the environment is key to our well-being.

The donation was presented to the association at “A Day with Nature and Tapirs” held at the River Dusun Wildlife Reserve in Selangor. Monies raised was derived from products sold under the Naturals by Watsons line which is nature-inspired. Watsons contributed RM1 to the campaign (between 27 March to 23 April) for every item sold under the brand, both online and at physical stores. Funds from this campaign will be channelled towards a specially designed environmental education programme for school children located around the Taman Negara National Park, home of the Malayan Tapir.

This programme aims to educate children on this gentle creature as well as to raise young environmental stewards who will continue to champion and spread the message of conservation and wildlife protection. “At Watsons, we believe in playing a key role in making a positive impact on the conservation of the wildlife and environment.

In our second consecutive year, we are privileged to partner with the Ecotourism and Conservation Society Malaysia (ECOMY), to channel our contributions towards the “We Hug Tapir” campaign. We took this opportunity to educate our shoppers in creating the awareness of the Malayan Tapir, a species that is facing endangerment due to its habitat threatened by human commercial activities.

It is important to know that the Tapir forms an important part of the ecosystem as seed dispersers and it is one of the oldest surviving wildlife in the animal kingdom. Hence, we chose the Naturals by Watsons range of products, as it resonated with the advocacy of using natural and organic ingredients, promoting environmental consciousness.

Special Thanks goes out to all our Watsons shoppers who had purchased the Naturals by Watsons products range during the campaign and helped raise the funds representing a collective effort in saving the tapirs,” said Caryn Loh 宝霞, General Manager and Country Head of Watsons Malaysia.

According to Andrew Sebastian, Co-founder/Chief Executive Officer of The Ecotourism and Conservation Society Malaysia (ECOMY) funds from this campaign will be channelled towards a specially designed environmental education programme for school children located around our National Park – Taman Negara – home of the Malayan Tapir.

This programme aims to educate children on this gentle creature as well as to raise young environmental stewards who will continue to champion and spread the message of conservation and wildlife protection. During the “A Day with Nature and Tapirs” event organized for members of the media witnessed a cheque presentation ceremony from the proceeds of the sales from the campaign.

Members of the media were also taken on a Tapir garden tour at the River Dusun Wildlife Reserve, where the media were treated to an up-close and personal encounter with the Tapirs to understand more about the species. After that, the media also witnessed a jackfruit tree planting in the habitat area of the Tapirs, as the jackfruit is one of the source of food for the species.

Fisher-Price’s STEM Play Toys For Our Children | Science | Technology | Engineering | Mathematics

From the moment they are born, children have a natural inclination to explore the world around them. How do they do that? Largely through play. If play is such a naturally occuring window through which kids see the world, it follows that the kind of toys they play with will have a large impact on the kind of play they get to participate in. This is the topic that Fisher-Price set out to explore at their event titled “Learning Revolutionised”, overseen by Dr. Deborah Weber, Director of Early Childhood Development at Fisher-Price.

Educational toy-maker, Fisher-Price has been at the forefront of developments in toys since the company was formed in 1930. While the team of adults there have proven to be wholly committed to developing toys that are safe, durable, and high-quality - there is no better way to ensure those toys will be fun than to ask the consumers themselves: children. This is where Fisher-Price’s Play Lab comes in. The Play Lab research facility puts observational research at the centre of its design strategy. Over the years, it has seen more than 127,000 babies and pre-school children and 1,700 parents through toy trials.

“The ability to observe how children play has been instrumental in allowing us to create toys that they love,” explained Dr. Weber. “Play Lab allows us to determine the age-grade for our products - ensuring that Fisher-Price is creating toys are both appropriate and enriching for developing children.”

Dr. Weber discussed the development chart that Fisher-Price uses to group their toys. She shared about why it is important for parents to an age-appropriate play guide as play can help facilitate their children’s growth. While the stages of development are a good reference for parents, Dr. Weber stressed that it cannot be taken at face value - that all children develop at their own pace and reach milestones at different times.

This could not have been a more timely reminder in our technologically advancing world. It isn’t uncommon to see young children at a dinner table with a smartphone or tablet propped in front of them while the adults at the table chat or do the same. Gadgets are undeniably effective as devices of distraction, but healthy parameters do need to be set. Dr. Weber provided some useful tips that parents could apply in managing gadget time for their kids: review content appropriateness,  limits on gadget time, and ensuring that there are periodical breaks between each session.

On the topic of technological advancements, Dr. Weber highlighted the growing importance of the STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics) method in today’s early childhood development. The STEM method puts an emphasis in active and systematic thinking - sharpening critical thinking and problem solving skills. It plays a large role in preparing children to build globally competitive characters, ready to take on a wide range of technical and creative careers in the future.

With the intention to meet the growing need for an early STEM education, Fisher-Price presents the Think & Learn line of toys that combines STEM methods and technology-based learning systems. Dr. Weber demonstrated how one of these toys, the Code-A-PillarTM, works to do exactly this. The toy features 9 easy-to-connect segments that preschoolers can arrange and rearrange to “tell” the toy how to move: forward, left, right, wiggle, dance or even wait for a couple seconds before moving again. Kids start the Code-a-pillarTM at point A and figure out how to get it to move to destination point B through sequencing.

Dr. Weber  emphasised “Every parent wants to give their children the best possible start in life. It is important that throughout the process, parents are also involved in play time, witnessing their child’s early development first hand. In a technologically changing world, it is becoming more crucial for children to develop problem solving skills and what other way to best develop this skill then through play! When kids are busy playing, they are building more than preschool learning: they are building the foundation to grow into big thinkers.”

With Fisher-Price at the helm of very exciting developments in play time, parents can rest easy, knowing that their kids are in good hands. Can click here to watch baby MH video.
