Wow! Wow! Everyone!

***WINNER PICKED 6/12 WITH RANDOM.ORG***

***CONGRATULATIONS, Bev (non-blogger)!!!***

her comment...
I've always loved Cinderella. She went from rags to riches. You never know what will happen, until you put on those glass slippers. Thanks for having the contest!




We've been Noggin addicts since Roo was about Jasper's age and we know most of its programming by heart. We were really excited when Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! came on the air. Its simple storylines and drawing style are charming and the episodes wrap up with a catchy song that showcases the moral of the story. Every episode features a message about the importance of friendship, telling the truth, etc., but the lessons are never preachy or heavy-handed. Roo and Jasper love the songs most. When we received a package of Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! items to review, I assumed Roo would be the one to go ga-ga over it. She did immediately latch on to the DVD (A Tale of Tails) but Jasper claimed the stuffed Wubbzy and electronic board book. I am slightly embarrassed to report that his first recognizable utterance is very clearly "Wow! Wow!"



Roo suggested "maybe Jasper and I can share Wubbzy!" Uh, yeah, you try to wrench the little yellow guy from your baby brother. Let me know how that works for you… I think we might be better off just getting a second Wubbzy doll! You can enter to win a giant Wubbzy prize pack on YouTube in the Wubbzy Dance Contest. Just film your child's stylin' dance moves and upload it for your chance to win a Disco Dancing Wubbzy Doll, Wubbzy, Walden and Widget plush dolls, a collection of 6 Wubbzy books and A Tale of Tails DVD!

To enter and win a Wubbzy gift pack, including A Tale of Tails DVD, books, Kooky Kollectible toy and plush Wubbzy!, please comment on this post with your favorite cartoon character and the lesson it taught you.

  1. We love Wubzy too! Although I have to continually remind myself that Wubzy is a boy. He isn't very...masculine. But that's okay, one day he will go through "the change" and become a man.
    I like the random character that says, "That's Koooo-keee!". It is our little inside preschool joke now between me and Jonas.
    My favorite cartoon Character; I guess I always liked popeye. He instilled in me a love of spinach.

  2. Am I nuts for not knowing about Wubzy? Maybe about as nuts as one of my bloggy friends who just commented on my Twilight post today, saying that she had never heard of it. How can that be? LOL

    Cute blog. Glad I stopped by. I saw you over on Fractured Toy!

  3. My son loves Wubbzy too! He also loves Oswald and I've learned from that cartoon that Kevin Arnold, um, I mean, Fred Savage, really isn't the greatest singer.

    PS It was great meeting you Sunday!

  4. I always liked Pooh Bear the most. I liked that he played Pooh Sticks. I grew up in the country with no other kids nearby, so I spent a lot of time entertaining myself, and I could easily relate to games like Pooh Sticks.

  5. Dora was always my favorite with my kids. Oh the Spanish words we have learned over the years!

    I didn't know Fred Savage was the voice on that show. Loved the Wonder Years!

  8. My daughter would love a Wubzy gift pack! When I was a kid my favorite characters were the Care Bears, who taught all about caring and sharing and friendship. I think they've been re-released in the past few years but I've yet to see them become really popular again. I wonder if Tenderheart Bear still part of the gang...

    Thanks!

  13. I love Veggie Tales (my favorite is Larry the Cucumber). They teach all sorts of lessons. Lately my daughter wants to watch the Veggie Tales Jonah movie all the time. The story of Jonah teaches about compassion and even though I'm no longer a kid, it's still a good reminder to be compassionate toward others.

  72. It is about time they released Wubbzy toys and videos. I think my toddler has given up on ever receiving one. I honestly can't think of a special lesson from childhood cartoons except that now that I have my own children I realize how jipped we were! Sesame Street before school and cartoons on Saturday morning. Now there are atleast 8 or 10 24 hour a day childrens channels on cable. WOW.

  118. Calliou - its great teaching tool for parents for communication and active interaction with your kids. They listen to what he says and show with mirroring that they understand. They care for him but set limits. His parents are always doing things for him.

    ReplyDelete
