I’m a huge Wubbzy fan. He’s cute, clever and funny. The stealth learning messages are hiddin within the context of the story and easily slide into your subconscious. This new one, Wow! Wow! Wubbzy!: Escape From Dino Island, brings Wubbzy together with the unusual inhabitants of Dino Island In this collection of episodes, Wubbzy learns that his actions have consequences that become his responsibility. Wubbzy realizes his decisions have caused a Sillysaurus to follow the Wavy Wheeler 3000 to Wubbzville. He must ultimately confront the situation. The result is a sweeter understanding of his neighbors on Dino Island.
In true Wubbzy form, these episodes are adorable and colorful with danceable music to kick it up a bit. It’s kooky fun for the little ones. The variety of humorous, unusual imagery is appealing to adults as well as kids. Stories boost personal confidence and social skills by presenting scenarios that encourage positive decision making skills that result in children finding positive solutions to problems. Our kid critics liked it because “It was fun to watch. It was funny. I liked how the Sillysaurus chased Wubbzy so he could get some sugar.” Check it out.
