3 blast-from-the-past AOA public service announcements
What do Sesame Street, the space-traveling "Seymour Safely" and a catchy jingle have in common? They all appear in past AOA public service announcements--and they all show that the AOA has been highlighting the need for childhood eye exams for decades.
This video featuring Sesame Street characters advocates for back-to-school exams. Even Animal gets in on the action.
If Sesame Street characters could not get through to kids, perhaps the sci-fi character Seymour Safely could. He was full of helpful vision tips for children.
And finally, here is a simple but necessary message: "It's fun to play games with vision, but don't play games with your eyes." Be warned, you may be humming the jingle for days.
