Drip Drops Teach Children About the Wonderful World of Colors
The Drip Drops are delightful little characters based on a series of books that are now being launched as a new preschool children’s property by TCKL, Inc.

The Drip Drops live in Tint Town, a very special place where the first rainbow appeared. Being composed of the hues from the primary, secondary and tertiary groups of colors, the Drip Drops help children learn how our vivid and vibrant world works.
By putting their power of color to good use, they can come to the children’s rescue when they have questions about the mysteries of color and nature. Why is the sky colored blue and why is the grass green? What turns a flamingo’s feather pink? The answers to these questions are all found in the first six Drip Drops books, a magnificent set that combines the elements of great content and remarkable illustrations. Apart from being a learning tool, the Drip Drops books also promote good values, stressing on the importance of friendship, caring and being responsible for one another.
An assortment of toys and learning materials are also expected to be launched in Fall of 2010 as complementary items for the books. Children will delight in deluxe activity sets, mini figures and play sets that build on the adventures of their favorite Drip Drops characters. The exciting exploits of the Drip Drops can also be enjoyed through www.thedripdrops.com, an interactive website that features activities, games, the first animated Drip Drops episode, and many more.
Tony, Lawlor, President and CEO of TKCL, Inc. says "the Drip Drops have been especially created to make education and reading truly engaging for children by incorporating the appeal of colors."
"Color plays such an important part of a child’s life and is integral in the expression of their individuality,"
"Color really brightens our world and it is the Drip Drops’ task to brighten the world of every child by teaching them the magic of color,“ said Lawlor.
Created by Lawlor and written by Laura Gates Galvin, the Drip Drops are also a cause-oriented property dedicated to the children at the Grossman Burn Center and a proud partner of the Circle of Care Foundation, which aids children who are burn survivors.
Himself a burn survivor, Lawlor says he empathizes with the families of the children burn victims and is fully aware of the extent of financial, medical and emotional aftercare they need to cope with the experience of living with a burn injury.
"Our goal is to help brighten the day of these children any way we can," Lawlor says. "We hope you will help us by coloring the world with Drip Drops,”
