Wow! Wow! Wubzy DVD Review and Giveaway



Who loves Wubbzy? We do! My kids love watching the antics of Wubbzy, Waldo, Widget and all their friends on the TV show Wow! Wow! Wubbzy. Earlier this year we saw tv ads promoting the Wubb Idol episodes featuring Beyonce in her first ever children's project. We never got around to watching it, but fortunately for us, the new Wubb Idol DVD just came out on October 13, so we get another chance. We recently received a copy of the DVD, as well as the new Wow! Wow! Wubzy! Sing A Song sing-along-CD featuring Beyonce. Here's what we thought:

The Basics
Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! is Nick Jr.'s #2-rated preschool property, with its popular tv series, online games and podcasts. Even the youngest viewers can relate to the situations that Wubbzy and the gang find themselves in, and each show reinforces important preschool social skills like sharing, getting along and helping others. Wubb Idol is Wubbzy's first TV movie and highest-rated Wubbzy episode of 2009; it has just been released on DVD on October 13, along with new Wubb Idol-themed books from Scholastic and Wubb Idol toys from Fisher-Price.


Here's what the folks behind Wubb Idol have to say about the DVD:
In “Wubb Idol” (SRP $16.98), Wubbzy, his best friends, Walden, Widget and Daizy, can’t wait for the most popular girl group, The Wubb Girlz, to pay a visit to host the “Wuzzleburg Idol” talent show! Everyone in town hopes to win the contest. If Wubbzy can wow the judges, he’ll get the chance to go on to Wuzzlewood and perform with Sparkle, Shimmer, and Shine at their big concert and maybe even become a movie star! But will he remember the importance of just being himself? Viewers join “Wubb-Z,” Walden, Widget and Daizy and special guest stars BeyoncĂ© and former ET anchor Jann Carl – on the coolest, star-powered road trip ever filled with singing, dancing, best friends and more!

Multi-award-winning international pop sensation BeyoncĂ© Knowles makes her voiceover debut in “Wubb Idol” – her first-ever children’s project – as Shine, the lead singer of the most awesome girl group, The Wubb Girlz!

The new 93-minute DVD – with double the content of the “Wubb Idol” TV movie – also features special activities, coloring pages, music videos and more!


The Bongga
What can I say except Wow! Wubbzy is the sweetest little character, with a heart of gold and a body to match. He's so cute, you can't help but wub, I mean love, him! Beyonce's cartoon character, Shine, looks almost as hot as Beyonce herself. She sparkles, shimmers and shines like the star she is. Her Sing A Song, is my favorite track on the Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! Sing a Song cd. It's bright and catchy and it reminds me of Beyonce's "Single Ladies". Not that I'm trashing any of the other songs in the album, which contain songs on the Wubbzy tv show that kids know and love.

The Blah
I don't think the show had to be as long as it was. Kids don't need feature-length entertainment to enjoy, and keeping the show shorter would help parents limit their kids' tv time. I would have preferred several, shorter episodes so we could extend the Wubb Idol fun over several sessions.

The Bottom Line
The new Wubb Idol DVD is going to Wow! Wow! Wow! your preschooler with a fun , danceable music, and a great take-home lesson: Be happy with who you are.

Win It!
One lucky Bonggamom Finds reader will be selected to win a Wow! Wow! Wubzy prize pack, which includes:

* the brand-new Wubb Idol DVD
* two Wubb Idol-themed books from Scholastic
* the new Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! Sing-A-Song CD featuring the original song composed and performed by Ms. Knowles!
