Wubbzy Goes To School! Like... WOW!

About a year ago, my preschool aged daughter started watching this hyper little cartoon on Nick, Jr called, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! And yes, there are really three exclamation points in the title!!!


Widget, Wubbzy & Walden


Wubbzy is a rectangular little guy with a gender ambiguous voice (my nanny and I debated for days over whether Wubbzy was a girl or a boy) who lives in Wuzzleburg with his pals, Widget, Walden and Daizy. They navigate their way through different challenges and adventures, often facing similar developmental and social issues as the preschoolers who are watching.


At the time, I kind of disliked the show because it was, well, really hyper. Aubrey was only two at the time and it was playing right before her bed time. I felt like it got her a bit too riled up, so I would usually change the channel.


Now, as the worldly three year old that Aubrey is, she understands and associates the messages in the story lines and we both can appreciate more of the humor in Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! I stopped changing the channel and we both really like this show. In short: it's cute and teaches some good lessons.


Aubrey and I got the opportunity to screen a copy of Wubbzy's brand-spankin'-new DVD from Bolder Media, Inc and Anchor Bay Entertainment called, Wubbzy Goes To School! This new DVD hit the shelves on August 3rd which was perfect timing for us as we are getting geared up for Aubrey's first full week in preschool. You'll have a chance to win a copy of the DVD at the end of this post, so read on my literate friends!






The new DVD features six episodes, including: "Who Needs School?," "New Kid On The Block," "Gotta Dance," "Wubbzy The Star," "You Gotta Have Art" and "Magic Tricks". After viewing the DVD a couple times, I asked Aubrey which episode she liked best and she said, "The dancing one!" Aubrey will take any opportunity to cut a rug and she actually did the "Wubbzy Wiggle" for her pediatrician at her 3 yr check up in June. So... there you go.


The DVD also features bonus features such as "Meet Wubbzy's Schoolmates" photo gallery and coloring and activity sheets. Wubbzy Goes To School!  is in stores and on Amazon.com now. It has a run time of 70 minutes and a suggested retail price of $16.98. If you have little ones (3-6yrs) heading off to school, either for the first time or as a returning student, this is a really fun video to get them geared up for a great year of learning and growing!
