I love that kids are learning, even at the earliest ages, about the importance of being earth-friendly and aware of how our actions impact the planet we live in. I recently found out about a cast of characters -- The Endangerbles -- that is helping to educate kids about endangered animals. Each cute, cuddly Endangerbles character is based on, or represents, a specific species that has been or is currently on the endangered species list. For example, you've got Sasha the penguin, Ulysses the Bald Eagle, Khul the tiger, Milton the baby orangutan, Bucksnort the Indian Rhino and more. Kids can visit the Endangerbles website to learn more about the real animals the Endangerbles are based on. They're all so adorable, kids are practically guaranteed to fall in love with them. Hopefully, that will translate into a desire to protect the live version of their Endangerbles friend!
Endangerbles currently has a line of plush toys and a cd for sale at the Endangerbles online store.
About the Endangerbles cd:
The Endangerbles music CD features 10 original upbeat songs, all composed by Fred Bogert, the three-time Emmy-nominated musician-performer widely acclaimed for his musical contributions to the popular kids-based folk-rock duo Trout Fishing In America.
