Andrew Vue and Kyndall Ellis from Milwaukee are featured along with nearly 40 local Milwaukee-area kids in three new online safety webisodes — Spriggy SafeT-V — available for parents and kids to watch and share on KohlsSafeandHealthy.com.
The new webisodes showcase the funny, imaginative and creative ideas kids have about the world. Interviewers ask the kids how they would keep Spriggy – the program’s loveable blue mascot – safe from different calamities like hungry dinosaurs, invading aliens and giant sea creatures. The kids’ candid answers are clever and engaging. When asked, however, how they would keep themselves safe in different real-world environments, they don’t always have the answer. The webisodes are designed to be watched and shared to spark discussion between parents and kids about how much they know about staying safe in their various environments: at home, outdoors and on the go.

Accidental injury is the leading cause of death in children age 18 and younger. Research shows that through awareness and education, many of these injuries are preventable. The Kohl’s Cares Grow Safe & Healthy program is a partnership between Kohl’s Cares and Children’s Hospital of Wisconsin that provides free tools and educational resources to families to keep them safe and healthy.
