Videos: 6 Steps of Handwashing

Handwashing with soap (HWWS) is a powerful ‘do-it-yourself vaccine’, but must be done properly to be effective. Like a close friend to children, BoBo the frog taught the 6 proper steps of HWWS during the 2014 LaBobo tour for Global Handwashing Day .

In order to make it fun and easy to remember for children, HappyTap Co. choreographed a dance inspired by a Unicef routine. The 6 steps are made into a fun dance performed by BoBo the frog, who is the LaBobo mascot.

HappyTap Co. also created a more formal video to introduce parents to the 6 steps. The steps are made easier with the convenience of the LaBabo handwashing device.
