Before Banjo Robinson, Kate had an impressive career in LA, running writers' rooms for influential screenwriter Etan Cohen, working as a creative executive on Ghostbusters III and Men in Black III for Sony, Museum of Supernatural History for Setven Spielberg at DreamWorks, Candyland for Disney and Daddy's Home for Paramount.
The idea for Banjo Robinson came about when Kate's father used to hide mail throughout the house for her to find when she was a child and when she was writing to friends' children back home in England. Thus, Banjo Robinson the company was born.
For a generation of tech consumers, proper, paper post was a fresh way to spread magic of storytelling, and so Banjo Robinson - adventurer, penpal and magical cat was born.

Make learning fun
School isn't the only place for learning activities. We learn through every day life and experiences that are not “school-like” in any way, and things do not need to “academically” educational to be worthy of our time and effort. We can all be creative in the ways we learn different things, whether we are young or old!
Get your kids excited about discovering something new by disguising the learning activities as fun time. There are many other ways to learn, though, and as parents we can understand our children and see what styles they enjoy and respond to best.
The most important thing is that we are encouraging our children to explore the world around them.
Foster kindness and empathy
It is critical to start and teach kids at a young age, when they can most easily absorb fundamental lessons.
Usually, children like to learn from the people around him. They mimic the behavior of others and implement that in their own behavior. They are born imitators. So, we should present an imitable character before them which will help them grow as a good human being.
Children are the future habitants of this world. If they are kind and empathetic, the world will be in safe hands.
Teach kids the importance of diversity
Promote self-discovery by sharing personal journeys and helping kids understand that everyone has a story.
Teach children that their lives are enriched when they encounter and befriend people from different racial, ethnic or socioeconomic backgrounds, or who face different learning or physical challenges.
Remind kids that everyone is an individual and when kids are self-aware and self-accepting, they are less likely to be judgmental or prejudiced.
