Hands up who went to watch Despicable Me 3 in the summer hols? We did and we absolutely LOVED it! We were invited along for a very special screening of the film to celebrate the launch of Tetra’s limited edition 30L Minions themed aquarium. I’ve seen it in person and confirm it’s fantastic and the perfect way to welcome young children into the exciting world of fishkeeping. They are bound to be excited at the prospect of looking after their new friends in a Minions themed tank!
Luckily for us, Rose starting school in reception this year has been pretty plain-sailing so far. We’ve not had many tears and everything appears to be going swimmingly. However, I appreciate that is not the case for all children. Something I understand only too well when I look back to when Rose attended pre-school last year. She cried and cried for weeks and I felt like her sadness was never going to end.
Did you know that having a pet can encourage children to build transferable skills and further boost their performance in school?
Research from Tetra leaders in aquatics has found that children with a pet fish meet or exceed teacher’s expectations by almost 10% versus children without any pets while also encouraging kids to be more confident and friendly. What’s more, over half of parents whose children have fish believe they have a calming effect on their child in addition to teaching them responsibility, developing their social skills and encouraging cognitive development.
With this in mind, it’s no surprise that fish are now the most popular pet in the UK, with around 33 million fish making up some of the 54 million pet owning households across the country. Brits are most likely to take up the hobby as they believe aquariums look good in the home, require little maintenance and create a relaxing environment with the average age that children are given the responsibility of a pet being 7.5 years old. Perfect for supporting their development in primary school as they work towards their SATS.
For those who are looking to introduce an aquarium to the home, Tetra has a range of fun character themed aquariums children will love while offering a complete starter kit to help welcome families into the fascinating world of fish keeping with ease.
