Meet the Crew - People
Here are our friends - are you ready to meet them all?
Meet the People:
This is Imogen
Imogen runs, leaps, skates, climbs trees, sings and laughs with her friend Zaid. She never stops!
When she is tired, she plays with her vain dog, Chou Chou. She lives right by the green with her father, Dave, and their flatmate, Alfonsa Van Der Boom.
Imogen likes Alfonsa because she takes her on long bike rides, tells her about her travels around the world and teaches her about different animals. She always shows her interesting, beautifully illustrated books too. But she likes her most of all because Alfonsa does not make Imogen dress up. Her mum, Anne Marie, is a fashion designer in Paris and is always asking Imogen to wear smart and trendy clothes.
Come and meet her, her father, Dave, her puppy, Chou Chou, and their flatmate, Alfonsa van der Boom.
She lives there with her dad, Dave, and their flatmate, Alfonsa van der Boom. Her mum, Anne Marie, lives in Paris, where she designs clothes. Anne Marie Loves designing beautiful clothes but it's hard work and she is far from her family. She misses her family and calls them nearly every day.
Here's Imogen's room
Check out Chou Chou's luxury tent! He is one posh dog.
Chou Chou (Shoo- Shoo)
Pronounce his name ‘Shoo-Shoo' or this terrier will get cross and will bark ‘Riff Raff' at you!
Chou Chou thinks he is more elegant and better than everybody else on the green because of his fancy French name. Imogen’s mother, Anne Marie, bought Chou Chou in Paris.
Every day Chou Chou and Imogen walk to the green; they are always together apart from when:
- Imogen climbs trees
- Imogen is at school
- When it is too muddy for Chou Chou to get his paws dirty (Chou Chou hates this!)
If you want the latest style, go straight to him; if you want to have a laugh just look at this terrier whenever he meets Mirella the Duck. He has a MASSIVE crush on her...
Dave is Imogen's cool and relaxed dad. He loves computers, websites and reading all about the internet.
Imogen and Dave are always baking on Saturday afternoons. They have baked: cookies, pizza, focaccia bread, sponges. They used to leave their cookies on the kitchen windowsill to cool, until Liam the Fox helped himself to the whole lot!
Dave is married to Anne Marie, Imogen's glam mum! She lives in Paris and designs clothes but she is also interested in hats and shoes. The three of them meet in Paris, at Dave and Imogen's or when they go on holiday together with Chou Chou.
The awesome three
Dave, Imogen and Chou Chou are usually together on Saturdays, unless Dave is on a deadline at work. If he has a deadline he works through the weekend but he tries to make up for it the following weekend.
Imogen's oober dad writes awesome codes! Dave works from home. Here's his office. It's 100% green and energy efficient. Dave is busy but he always makes time for Imogen and tries to spend every Saturday with her.
Alfonsa van der Boom
You'll hear Alfonsa before you see her. She is loud and bright and cheerful. She wakes up at dawn to go for a bike ride and then goes to work, managing OoberKidsRepublic's Adventure Playground.
In her spare time, Alfonsa swims, writes adventure stories and listens to conversations between animals. That's right! She's found the key to animal language in an old book she bought in Timbuktu during one of her adventures. She hasn't told anyone yet but she might tell Zaid or Imogen... She hasn't decided yet. Which of the two will Alfonsa reveal her secret to?
Welcome to Alfonsa’s oober sporty room. She is hardly at home in the week. She works, cycles, trains, laughs and is always busy. She enjoys every minute of her life.
Check out Alfonsa's playground. She is in charge of this oober fun green space
Zaid in 60 seconds
Only Zaid can match Imogen's energy.
He climbs trees, races Imogen around the green, explores the city on his bike, eats jam sandwiches, reads comics and loves atlases because he wants to be an explorer.
When he is not with Imogen, he is with Alfonsa van der Boom. Zaid also likes Alfonsa and enjoys hearing about her worldly travels. He wants a pet but is not allowed one so he sometimes sneaks Mino the hedgehog into his room while his mother, Rhiannon, is out.
Step right in. This is the hallway. Can you spot signs of Zaid's presence?
Zaid lives here with his father, Dr. Zana and his mother, Rhiannon.
Can you spot his special bed?
Zaid and Imogen
They are friends, partners in trouble, sometimes rivals and ALWAYS up to no good!
Dr. Zana is Zaid’s dad and he is the wizard of his laboratory. He is a chilled scientist, who works all day to discover new things about nature and to create new medicines.
He loves his experiments but his favourite chemical reaction is a cup of tea to relax with when his wife Rhiannon and son Zaid are out of the house.
Phew, peace and quiet!!
Zaid and his father always have fun together. They explore the neighborhood, try out new games, mess around and guffaw so much!
Rhiannon is Zaid's oober-organised mother!
She is never late, she is always in control, her socks are always clean and her house is always super tidy. Except for Zaid's room!
b) good food
d) hot chocolate
f) organising parties with her husband, Dr. Zana.
She loves to spoil Zaid. She just bought him a new trampoline for his birthday but they've made a deal. Zaid will get his present once he tidies up his room!!
Mino the Hedgehog
This brave, funny, nervy hedgehog is fresh from the countryside.
He is in the big city to find a mysterious little girl and return the scarf she dropped last summer while she was on holiday in Mino's countryside village.
How will he manage to find this little girl in this big city?
Mino is not afraid. He is ready! He took a city survival course before coming to the city. Plus, he already has a friend in the city, Oscar the Owl. Oscar lives on Grovington Green and will help Mino find the little girl.
Mino is easy-going, he likes many things and nearly everyone!
b) Saying ‘hello, lee, luu' when he meets people and ‘cheery ciao' when he says goodbye
c) Plump fruit and nuts
a) Rain and cold
b) Bad manners: He does not like children who swear or are cruel to other children, especially smaller children.
You have met Chou Chou at Imogen's. Look for him in the section above!
Kudos & Bonus
These two are the mouse and squirrel of Grovington Green . They are always together!
They have the same ideas and finish each other's sentences.
They met when they were very little and lost on the green.
They started chatting and they have never stopped.
Even their oldest friends sometimes cannot tell them apart.
They like the same things,
love the same things,
hate the same things
laugh at the same things
say the same things
They even buy the same things and sell the same things; that's because they are the business animals of the green!
If you hear of a crazy scheme, chances are it was their idea.
If you lose anything on the Green, go straight to them.
They collect ANYTHING they can get their paws on but they return them, if you are quick and claim them back BEFORE they have sold them on!
By the way: Kudos is the mouse and Bonus is the squirrel!
If there is a breaking story in Grovington Green then Yasmina the Butterfly will know all about it and she will tell everyone!
She tells everything, whether it has happened or not. This is because Yasmina likes a story. If you whisper a secret to a friend and Yasmina hears you, EVERYONE will know about it.
Once, when Zaid said to Imogen, "I will race you to the tree top", Yasmina was flying around and heard what Zaid said.
Instantly, she flapped around the green shouting,
“Olympic contest on Grovington Green! Come and watch the world's finest tree climbers competing for the gold medal!!"
Do you feel a cold coming on?
Do you have trouble getting to sleep?
Do you feel a bit sad?
Then talk to Otalie the Ladybird. She knows all the best stories to help you fall asleep, cheer you up, give you strength to go to school and eat your greens!
She makes medicines to cure all the animals on the green and she knows all their secrets but she keeps them to herself, unlike YASMINA!
The wisest animal on Grovington Green, Oscar is clever and knows ABSOLUTELY EVERYTHING. The things he doesn't know, he quickly works out.
Animals on the Green go to Oscar when they want to find out something they don’t know themselves and can’t find on the internet. On busy days, you will see a long queue by Oscar’s tree of squirrels, ducks, geese, ants, mice and robins.
Oscar knows many things but he is funny too. He tells everyone funny and true things from the past.
You wouldn’t guess it but this flapping genius has a secret. This wise owl loves rock music and, at night, he plays it loudly on his red, shiny guitar. His music is terrible but Oscar is sure he can be a rockstar one day. Even if people scream when he sings and plays.
"What's the matter with you, man?" Oscar can often be heard saying when humans rush out of their flats to see who is playing that awful music.
They sometimes lean out of their windows to unmask the awful singer but they only see Oscar the Owl and wonder whether they have just dreamt the bad music.
Nobody has found out the truth. It's a secret so you won't tell anyone, will you?
This clever and cute duck is the star of Grovington Green's pond. She was born there and was the cutest duckling of them all.
She is still very pretty and chatty. She can go on forever in fact. Chat, chat, chat; quack, quack, quack.
She LOVES it when crowds of people clap their hands during her shows. They are not proper shows as they only happen once in a while when she feels like dancing and leaping across the water and, when she is in a good mood, tap dancing!
The humans call her 'Tip-Tap-Toes'.
She always winks at her admirers and can be very sweet but she also likes to be right. In fact, she thinks she is always right!
If you ever start an argument with Mirella, be prepared to argue forever. She has out-argued everyone! You can try to win but you will need to be brave.
Good luck with that duck!
Nobody has ever out-foxed Liam.
He is the slyest, quickest, funniest fox you or your lunchbox will ever see!
Keep an eye on your lovely pasta salad, your spaghetti Bolognese or your pizza and omelettes. In fact, keep an eye on ANY nice food. If you don't, Liam will wolf them all down (even if he is a fox) faster than you can say 'foxtrot!'
His t-shirt may say 'it's never MY fault', but it usually is!
Like Oscar the Owl, Liam has travelled far and wide but the animals on the green don't trust him because Liam usually tells tales and makes up facts. If he swears he is telling the truth, DON'T believe him!
See the spots where our friends meet
The Spelling Bus - Once a week, Imogen, Zaid and their friends board the Spelling Bus to practice their literacy while driving around town. The bus is so popular that the kids like to call it the 'Spelling Buzz'!
The Chat Hut
Leave your laptops and phones behind! This is a place where Imogen, Zaid and their friends go to meet, chat and make friends. They drink delicious milkshakes and smoothies while they talk.
Before they leave, they write a goodbye message on the white “Thoughts of the Day” board.
Zaid huffs and puffs, but he eventually scribbles something. Imogen always writes long messages.
She LOVES writing.
The Fun Shop
Meet Ponzo and his dog, Alonso. They run the Fun Shop! Do you want something funny, wonky or original for a friend?
Or maybe you want to treat yourself?
This is the place to go.
Be prepared to be amazed! Ponzo can tell lots of jokes, teach you new games and make you laugh or stare! Every day, it’s a different adventure in the fun shop.
Ponzo is a little scatterbrained and might keep you waiting for ages but you can always pet Alonso while you wait.
He will bark but he will never bite (unless you’re a dog biscuit)!
Everybody likes a good story. This is the Cinema where all our friends go to relax and dream and delve into their imagination.

Delivery will be completed when we deliver the Products to the address you gave us.
If no one is available at your address to take delivery, we will leave you a note that the Products have been returned to our premises, in which case, please contact us to rearrange delivery.
The Products will be your responsibility from the completion of delivery.
You own the Products once we have received payment in full, including all applicable delivery charges.
PRICE AND CHARGES
The prices of the Services and the Products will be as quoted on our Site from time to time. All prices for the Services and the Products are payable in advance. We take all reasonable care to ensure that the prices of Services and the Products are correct at the time when the relevant information was entered onto the system.
The Subscription Fees and Subscription Periods will be on a monthly, six monthly and annual basis. Monthly and six monthly subscriptions will automatically be renewed at the end of the relevant Subscription Period until you notify us that you wish to terminate your subscription.
Prices for our Services and/or Products may change from time to time, but changes will not affect any Order which we have confirmed with you in our written acceptance of your Order.
The price of the Services and/or the Product includes VAT (where applicable) at the applicable current rate chargeable in the UK for the time being. However, if the rate of VAT changes between the date of your order and the date of delivery, we will adjust the VAT you pay, unless you have already paid for the Products in full before the change in VAT takes effect.
The price of a Product does not include delivery charges. Our delivery charges are as quoted on our Site from time to time.
If we raise an invoice for you to pay, the invoice must be paid within 28 days from the date of the invoice. We reserve the right to charge interest at a daily rate of 3% over the base lending rate of HSB Bank Plc if you fail to make payment on the due date.
HOW TO PAY
You can only pay for the Services and/or Products via the Site using a debit card or credit card. In the case of businesses and organisations we may raise an invoice for the Services and/or Products that you wish to Order.

OUR LIABILITY IF YOU ARE A BUSINESS

Nothing in these Terms limit or exclude our liability for:
death or personal injury caused by our negligence;
fraud or fraudulent misrepresentation;
breach of the terms implied by section 12 of the Sale of Goods Act 1979 (title and quiet possession); or
defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
Subject to clause 15.2, we will under no circumstances whatever be liable to you, whether in contract, tort (including negligence), breach of statutory duty, or otherwise, arising under or in connection with the Contract for:
any loss of profits, sales, business, or revenue;
loss or corruption of data, information or software;
loss of business opportunity;

Except as expressly stated in these Terms, we do not give any representation, warranties or undertakings in relation to the Services and/or Products. Any representation, condition or warranty which might be implied or incorporated into these Terms by statute, common law or otherwise is excluded to the fullest extent permitted by law. In particular, we will not be responsible for ensuring that the Services and/or Products are suitable for your purposes.
OUR LIABILITY IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER
This clause only applies if you are a consumer.
If we fail to comply with these Terms, we are responsible for loss or damage you suffer that is a foreseeable result of our breach of these Terms or our negligence, but we are not responsible for any loss or damage that is not foreseeable. Loss or damage is foreseeable if they were an obvious consequence of our breach or if they were contemplated by you and us at the time we entered into the Contract.
We only supply the Services and/or Products for educational purposes, domestic and private use. You agree not to use the product for any commercial, business or re-sale purposes, and we have no liability to you for any loss of profit, loss of business, business interruption, or loss of business opportunity.

defective products under the Consumer Protection Act 1987.
EVENTS OUTSIDE OUR CONTROL
We will not be liable or responsible for any failure to perform, or delay in performance of, any of our obligations under these Terms and any Contract that is caused by an Event Outside Our Control. An Event Outside Our Control is defined below in clause 17.2.
An Event Outside Our Control means any act or event beyond our reasonable control, including without limitation strikes, lock-outs or other industrial action by third parties, civil commotion, riot, invasion, terrorist attack or threat of terrorist attack, war (whether declared or not) or threat or preparation for war, fire, explosion, storm, flood, earthquake, subsidence, epidemic or other natural disaster, or failure of public or private telecommunications networks or impossibility of the use of railways, shipping, aircraft, motor transport or other means of public or private transport.
If an Event Outside Our Control takes place that affects the performance of our obligations under a Contract:
we will contact you as soon as reasonably possible to notify you; and
our obligations under a Contract will be suspended and the time for performance of our obligations will be extended for the duration of the Event Outside Our Control. Where the Event Outside Our Control affects our delivery of Products to you, we will arrange a new delivery date with you after the Event Outside Our Control is over.
This agreement will terminate (i) automatically at the end of the Subscription Period in which you notify us that you wish to terminate the Contract (unless you agree to continue with Services and pay a further Subscription Fee) and (ii) if you or we are in material breach of any of its terms and if the breach is not remedied within the period of twenty working days after written notice of it has been given to the party in breach.
If we are in material breach as a result of circumstances within our control, you will be entitled to pro-rata return of the Subscription Fee. If you are in material breach of this agreement you will not be entitled to a refund of your Subscription Fee.
On termination of this agreement for any reason:
all licences granted under this agreement shall immediately terminate;
subject to the exceptions in this sub-clause, you will take reasonable steps to delete the Software and Contents from your electronic media and electronic storage devices so that you no longer have an electronically functional copy of the Software or any part of the Contents;
we may destroy or otherwise dispose of any of the Subscriber Data in our possession unless we receive, no later than ten days after the effective date of the termination or expiry of this agreement, a written request for the delivery to you of a print-out of the then most recent back-up of the Subscriber Data. We shall use reasonable commercial efforts to deliver the print-out to you within 30 days of receipt of such a written request, provided that you have, at that time, paid all fees and charges outstanding at and resulting from termination (whether or not due at the date of termination). You shall pay all reasonable expenses incurred by us in delivering such print-out; and
termination shall not affect or prejudice the accrued rights of the parties as at termination, or the continuation after termination of any provision expressly stated to survive or implicitly surviving termination.
COMMUNICATIONS BETWEEN US
When we refer, in these Terms, to "in writing", this will include e-mail.
If you wish to contact us in writing, or if any clause in these Terms requires you to give us notice in writing, you can send this to us by e-mail or by pre-paid post to OoberK Limited at 80-83 Long Lane, London EC1A 9ET or email@example.com. We will confirm receipt of this by contacting you in writing, normally by e-mail. If you are a consumer and exercising your right to cancel under clause 11, please see that clause 11 for how to tell us this.
If we have to contact you or give you notice in writing, we will do so by e-mail or by pre-paid post to the address you provide to us in your order.
If you are a business, please note that any notice given by you to us, or by us to you, will be deemed received and properly served immediately when posted on our Site, 24 hours after an e-mail is sent, or three days after the date of posting of any letter. In proving the service of any notice, it will be sufficient to prove, in the case of a letter, that such letter was properly addressed, stamped and placed in the post and, in the case of an e-mail, that such e-mail was sent to the specified e-mail address of the addressee.
OTHER IMPORTANT TERMS
We may transfer our rights and obligations under a Contract to another organisation, but this will not affect your rights or our obligations under these Terms. We will always notify you in writing or by posting on the Site if this happens.
You may only transfer your rights or your obligations under these Terms to another person if we agree in writing.
This Contract is between you and us. No other person shall have any rights to enforce any of its terms, whether under the Contracts (Rights of Third Parties Act) 1999 or otherwise.
Each of the paragraphs of these Terms operates separately. If any court or relevant authority decides that any of them are unlawful or unenforceable, the remaining paragraphs will remain in full force and effect.
If we fail to insist that you perform any of your obligations under these Terms, or if we do not enforce our rights against you, or if we delay in doing so, that will not mean that we have waived our rights against you and will not mean that you do not have to comply with those obligations. If we do waive a default by you, we will only do so in writing, and that will not mean that we will automatically waive any later default by you.
If you are a consumer, please note that these Terms are governed by English law. This means a Contract for the purchase of Services and/or Products through our Site and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it will be governed by English law. You and we both agree to that the courts of England and Wales will have exclusive jurisdiction.
If you are a business, these Terms are governed by English law. This means that a Contract, and any dispute or claim arising out of or in connection with it or its subject matter or formation (including non-contractual disputes or claims), will be governed by English law. We both agree to the exclusive jurisdiction of the courts of England and Wales.

In any way that breaches any applicable local, national or international law or regulation.
In any way that is unlawful or fraudulent, or has any unlawful or fraudulent purpose or effect.
For the purpose of harming or attempting to harm minors in any way.

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site, including, without limitation:
Other interactive features.
The interactive services are fully moderated. Every contribution submitted (contribution) will be checked by us for compliance with our content standards below (Content Standards) as soon as reasonably practicable after it is published. We will try to publish as many contributions as we can but we cannot guarantee that all contributions will be published or at all. We also cannot guarantee how quickly contributions will be posted on the Board as this will depend on other editorial commitments.
Although the interactive services are fully moderated, we are under no obligation to you or any other person to oversee, monitor or moderate the interactive services or any other service we provide on our site and we may stop moderating the interactive services at any time. We reserve the right to remove, or to disable access to, any contribution which we deem to be potentially defamatory of any person or which we deem unlawful or in violation of any third party rights. We expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of the interactive services by any person in contravention of this policy.
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks. However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the express consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not foolproof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material which you contribute to our site, and to any interactive services associated with it.
You must comply with the spirit of the following standards as well as the letter. The standards apply to each part of any contribution as well as to its whole.
