More Production updates coming soon!
Aiko & Egor is entertaining, engaging, and educational. Aiko & Egor targets specific skills that are common deficits for children with ASD. The characters interact with each other in very purposeful ways to model appropriate social behavior and provide opportunites for learning.
We are currently in production of the first season of Aiko & Egor, which will consist of six episodes. Each episode will be about ten minutes long. The first season will consist of target behaviors across three different developmental levels, making the videos appropriate for children with autism at various levels. These future episodes will focus on a variety of very important developmental areas, such as preverbal language, expressive language, initiations, preacademic and academic skills, play skills, greetings, social routines and games, turn-taking, sharing, and other.
Aiko: She’s a talkative purple whale who loves to play with her best friend Egor and explore the ocean. She plays the “kid role” in the video. Children can imitate Aiko to learn new skills. She loves to learn, play with toys, and make new friends.
Egor: He’s a bashful yet excitable orange blowfish who help Aiko learn new skills. He plays the teacher, parent, grandparent, caregiver, or sibling role by sometimes giving Aiko commands and exploring the ocean with her. Sometimes when he gets excited, he inflates and floats away like a balloon.
Wade: This recurring character is a favorite of many fans of the video series. He’s a playful green seahorse and is sometimes referred to as the “cool” kid. He lives on the coral corral with his many seahorse siblings. He joins Aiko & Egor to learn about colors, playing, and he’s a great older brother.
Fran & Tyler: Singing dinosaurs that engage in a really fun song where they make a Peanut Butter & Jelly sandwich while dancing and singing.
Pinky: He’s a sleepy Panda who Aiko & Egor meet while exploring the ocean. They play a fun imitation game together and are instant friends with each other.
Pepper: He’s an Elvis-like Penguin who sings songs with Aiko & Egor. Gesture imitation accompanies the songs to help get kids ready for singing with their friends at school.
Mark & Betty: Mark & Betty are little action figures that Aiko & Egor use for pretend play. Betty has a baby referred to as “Big Baby” because her baby is a large baby doll.
Sea Monkeys: The sea monkeys are recurring characters that are used to teach shapes, emotions, and show kids how to wash their faces in the morning.
Peek-A-Boo: An enormous turtle who likes to play Peak-A-Boo with his friends Aiko & Egor. This gentle giant is loving and sweet and his scene is accompanied by a classic song edited for the world of Aiko & Egor.
