The Kindi Kit is a fun way to teach personal safety to young children using the KinderVision mascot, Kindi Bear, the KinderVision DVD, coloring/activity sheets, and full color visual aids. Children act out a safety story, sing safety songs, and learn to recognize red flags in behaviors and circumstances that could put them at risk. Parent component included.
