Wow! Wow! Yo-ho-ho!

A lot of kids shows drive me a little batty. And not that garden variety crazy. That sort of crazy where you’d really rather stick hot pokers in your ears than listen to another verse. For example, my kids don’t know who this is

(hmmm, as it turns out – Audrey knows who he is. But! we’ve never watched an episode inside our home.)

When Elliot was small Backyardigans became available in our market. We bought the DVDs because finally! kids shows that didn’t make me cry! I just asked him if he liked Backyardigans. He said, “Not anymore. It’s kind of a little kid show.” This led to Audrey asking to watch Backyardigans. So, you can see that we have a diverse audience when it comes to television viewing.

One show they’ll both watch, and seemingly enjoy, though is Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! MomCentral gave me the chance to review Wubbzy’s latest offering:

Who doesn’t love a pirate? I mean really?

As it turns out, everyone in this test audience enjoys Pirate Wubbzy. Personally, I enjoy Wubbzy’s friend Widget. Widget is a girl! And pink! And she uses tools! And the boys like her! I like that Widget often solves the physical problems the band of friends encounter. Walden is “the smart one” and he often explains the lesson learned on their adventure. In Pirate Treasure Wuubzy found a map and convinced his friends to search for the hidden treasure. They were game but not entirely convinced. Wubbzy kept telling them they just had to believe. And in the end? (spoiler alert) The treasure was their adventure!

I asked Elliot his favorite part. He said, “I liked it all so much I forgot my favorite part.”He honestly laughed at certain parts. That’s relatively new for him. Honest-to-goodness LOL.

There are six other Wow! Wow! Wubbzy episodes on this disk. When they are together the fun never ends. At least not for 82 minutes.

    I agree that some shows can drive me insane. Mickey Mouse Club was one but only because of the song at the end. Dora is cool. Diego is cool. Max and Ruby is really cool.

    Barney never entered our house. Neither did the tele tubbies.

    Little Einstein is a favorite, but interesting enough Baby Einstein has made a comeback because Ethan can sit through it and Sydney loves it for some reason.

    Lynns last blog post..Rap? Isn’t that a synonym for "Knock"?
