This material has been designed specifically with the goal of introducing 3-5-year-olds to basic electrical concepts and safe habits.

Six stunningly illustrated posters depict situations in the lives of Luke and Lily: Luke and Lily in the kitchen, Lily’s bedroom, Luke in the bathroom, Luke and Lily in their backyard, Luke and Lily at the day-care center, and Luke and Lily go camping. Little ones will instantly identify with these two appealing characters and their surroundings. The posters can also support a range of fun and educational games and activities, like search-and-find, association games, riddles, storytelling and more.
