Guilt-free screen time for kids

Co-creators Scott Richmond and Dylan Bray hope their ‘Ozzie’ series of videos on YouTube will engage and educate two- to eight-year-olds, providing parents with a source of guilt-free screen time.

Featuring Richmond’s alter ego, Ozzie, the videos are full of excitement and energy, encouraging kids to learn about a wide range of topics including surfing, science experiments and community helpers. They’ve already attracted guest appearances from surfing world champ Sally Fitzgibbons, Sixers cricket star Jack Edwards and TV host Barry Du Bois.

Richmond and Bray started producing the videos earlier this year. The pair, who have children of their own at school and in preschool, are passionate about the importance of managing screen time for children and finding quality content that is not only engaging, but informative.

Providing parents with guilt-free screen time, the videos offer an abundance of information and facts for children, as well as takeaway skills they can use at home. The videos are entwined with literacy components in the form of visuals and topic words, where children have to find Ozzie icons, such as Australian animals and landmarks, which are hidden throughout the graphics.

The next range of videos is already in the pipeline, with the promise of more high-profile Aussies in guest appearances. You can find the current series here.
