Below is our recent interview with John Fyke, President & CEO at Helio Productions:
Q: Could you provide our readers with a brief introduction to Helio Productions?
A: Helio Productions, Inc. manufactures and distributes a wide array of children’s educational tools. We offer a night light projection system, that, through a series of interchangeable discs, projects different educational and entertainment-based content on ceilings or walls. Children can learn different subject matter as they go to bed at night.
Q: How exactly does it work?
A: The Helio night light uses LED light passing through proprietary designed discs casting shadow images onto flat surfaced ceilings and walls.
Q: Can you give us insights into your products?
A: All of our products are STEM certified and patented. All of our educational content has been created by accredited professionals who have assisted in creating the educational backbone book of Common Core. Our topics of learning parallel each child’s age and grade beginning in preschool and ending in ACT prep. Along with our night light projector, we offer an articulating stand to aim the unit to project at different surfaces. Each Helio projector is sold with 5 starter discs that include: Underwater scene, solar system, how fast animals run, how many sleep hours each animal sleeps, and last but not least a soothing tropical scene. Our additional content is sold in sets of 6 discs. Our most popular content is our word phonics sets, math, states, and sight words.
Q: What is the biggest challenge you’ve faced in your business and how did you overcome it?
A: Our biggest challenges have been getting past the “start-up” level in the industry. Formed in 2016, Our business has grown every year. Parents love that our product gets the children into a positive, relaxing bedtime routine. We have sold thousands of units and even donated thousands of units to the less fortunate demographic who uses education to get them positioned to thrive in an academic environment.
Q: What can we expect from Helio Productions in the future?
A: Helio is migrating into the software space. We have 6 different Apps launching for IOs and Android by Q2 of 2019. We also have partnered another company that offers an additional sensory learning tool. Music. Our Partnership with BarbaraMilne.com has given us the tools to offer a complete educational one stop shop.
