Zodiak Kids has launched a new website for its pre-school property Tickety Toc, which aims to help parents monitor their kids' screen time.

The site features a built-in timer which can be set from between five to 30 minutes.

Ticketytoc.com is available for fans in the UK, US, Canada and Australia, and features innovative activities for both children and parents.

Visitors to the site can interact with the world of Tickety Toc through games and quizzes before the site's innovative 'Chime Time.'

The website works on mobiles, tablets and desktop computers. 

Jennifer Lawlor, SVP consumer products at Zodiak Rights, said: "We know that kids are using mobiles and tablets more and more, and parents are often concerned about 'screen time'. The 'timer' feature on TicketyToc.com allows parents to have an element of control, and gets kids used to n automatic cut-off time, while still allowing them to have fun.

"We’re delighted with the Tickety Toc website as it not only reflects the fun and energy of the show, while capturing the show's ethos which is all about the lead characters Tommy and Tallulah getting things done within a given timeframe, but is also tapping into concerns of parents who are keen to let their children access suitable fun digital content, within reasonable limits."
