"Where Does Bubblegum Come From?" tells a real story of how bubblegum was created, and how a mistake isn't always a mistake. The WOB books are a learning tool and are interactive with http://www.thewob.com website.

A W.O.B. is actually an acronymn for "World of Babies" and it is in this world that children's imagination and love of learning is sparked. The WOB character is designed to capture the child's attention, while teaching basic reading, spelling and grammar. All children are curious and the WOB is just the character children can relate to.

Here is part of the text of an article about the WOB published in the Las Vegas Business Press on Saturday 20 November 2010:

It's a job for Wob
Entrepreneur envisions character at center of kids entertainment empire
By LAURA EMERSON

Walt Disney did it, now Rosalind Goly wants to. If Goly has her way, the character she created, The Wob, will one day be as recognizable as Disney's famous mouse, Mickey.

"The Wob," a television show, will feature costumed actors playing the title character and others; the cast also will include children. The program is set to air Saturday mornings sometime in late 2010. The show was picked up by Las Vegas-based V Asian TV network, which reaches 49 million households in North America.

Goly, a Las Vegas resident, has spent more than $200,000 creating a Wob empire, which so far includes the show, a website and interactive books. She also plans to create toys and a stage show based on the character.

"We believe that children's education is something we can always improve on," V Asian TV CEO and Chief Marketing Officer Jon Fondy said....

Goly, a grandmother to four young children, wanted to mentally stimulate her oldest grandson, Brian, when he was 5. Instead of searching for something commercial that would appeal to him, she created The Wob, a turquoise-and-white creature who reads books and has a friendly face and a bushy tail.

The Wob was a hit with Brian, now 10. Like her grandson, the character has a curious personality and seeks answers to questions like how bubble gum was created.

After she had developed The Wob's basic characteristics, Goly hired Cebutech, a Web developer, to design a child-friendly website for her. She also wrote a short book based on the cartoon, which she published through Writers Exchange E-Publishing.

The book was illustrated by Robert Lee Beers and sells for $4 on the website, thewob.com. Children can interact with the book and the site simultaneously, which, Goly said, should help make them memorable.

Goly plans to publish a new book every three months. All of them will focus on where something comes from or how it is made.

For the television show, Goly is creating other characters and writing scripts, all of which will focus on nutrition, exercise, reading, writing or math.
