Negative behaviour for Pre school… Really? – The importance of exploring bad moods:
Tolva and Ting shows the good times. It shows the Globots having fun, celebrating and having parties. It also shows the Globots when they are in their negative state; when they are low on energy and in a bad mood.
The audience will see this negative behavior from the point of view of the rest of the team, the rest of the family, as it causes them problems and disrupts their daily tasks. Only by calmly helping and supporting each other can they come back together and have fun again!
The disruptive behaviour is central to the narrative of the game. It’s also a key element in bringing fun, silliness and classic slapstick entertainment to engage the young audience.
Everyone gets in a bad mood sometimes and by exploring this strange behaviour children will begin to make sense of the experience and learn to deal with these feelings in themselves and in others. Tolva and Ting will promote a sense of empathy for the characters when they’re in a negative state. The audience will feel for them; feel sorry for them, and want to help them feel better again.
Importantly, the audience will see that they are never rewarded for bad behaviour. Whilst it is funny to watch, their bad moods isolate them from the rest of the team. When all is resolved the characters are repentant and happy to be part of the team again.
"Children will often behave in certain ways because of how they are feeling.
Helping them to recognise these feelings and to see that they can change their
feelings and thus their behaviour is an important part of their development.
Parents and children can work together to better understand this relationship
through helping the Globots to change their feelings, moods and behaviour.”
