Wubbzy Goes to School DVD review and giveaway


My kids' school starts next week and we're deep into preparations -- making sure they have shoes, clothes, backpacks and all that. But I'm making sure they're prepared mentally as well; getting them used to waking up early and getting ready quickly, talking to them about meeting new teachers and making new friends.

I was recently invited to preview the new DVD featuring the popular tv series "Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!": Wubbzy Goes to School, which was released on August 3. I thought it would be a great transition from summertime to schooltime -- some tv entertainment that I know my kids enjoy, with a little bit of school preparation thrown in.

The Basics
Here's some information about Wubbzy's new DVD:

Wubbzy, the cute and quirky bendy-tailed character from the hit Emmy® Award-winning Nick Jr.® preschool TV series, along with his pals Widget, Walden and Daizy, help preschoolers get ready to learn! learn! learn! with the DVD release of “Wubbzy Goes To School.” The newest collection of engaging episodes will ease children’s anxieties about heading off to school and making new friends – while they embark on wonderfully wacky adventures the Wubbzy way!

Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! “Wubbzy Goes To School” makes the grade at retail nationwide on August 3, 2010.
“Wubbzy Goes To School” (SRP $16.98) puts the “cool” in “school” with six charming episodes that will have everyone ready to hit the books. In “Who Needs School?,” Wubbzy is nervous about going off to school for the very first time and decides he can learn all he needs to know on his own. When things don’t work out as expected and Wubbzy has no one to play with, he realizes that maybe school isn’t so bad after all. In another episode, “New Kid On The Block,” Wubbzy learns that meeting and accepting new friends can be a big! big! big! job. When Murphy, a larger-than-life new student, joins the class, Wubbzy finds that good friends can come in all shapes and sizes.

Additional episodes include: “Gotta Dance,” “Wubbzy the Star,” “You Gotta Have Art” and “Magic Tricks,” starring Wuzzleburg’s own Moo Moo the Magician! Fans will also be “wowed” with cool bonus features such as the “Meet Wubbzy’s Schoolmates” photo gallery, coloring and activity sheets and more.


The Bongga
As Wubbzy would say, WowWowWow! Even though my kids are no longer preschool-age, they still love watching Wubbzy, and this DVD was no exception. It's great to hear them laughing over Widget's clumsy attempts at ballet (and the out-of-control antics of the clever ballet robot she built).

Even better, each episode features real-life situations that kids face when going to school, so when kids talk to parents about their fears and anxieties, parents can help them out by asking them, "What would Wubbzy do? Remember that episode when....."


The Blah
I'm a big proponent of educational kids' shows, and one could argue that Wubbzy doesn't really teach kids shapes, colors, numbers, science, letters. But the episodes do help kids think about social situations and how they should react. In general, I think Wubbzy is a good role model for kids because he's just like them -- he's impulsive and mischievous, but he has a good heart and he does try to do the right thing.


The Bottom Line
Wow! Wow! Wubbzy gets top marks from me because it's clean, lighthearted entertainment that kids can relate to (and enjoy watching, too!).

Win Wubbzy!
One lucky Bonggamom Finds reader will win a Wubbzy prize pack, consisting of the new Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! DVD, Wubbzy goes to School, and a Wow! Wow! Wubbzy book, School Surprise.
