Best preschooler show
30 April 2015 | by ameriblueSee all my reviews

This show teaches kindness and compassion to others. They don't make shows like this anymore. I hope they release ALL the episodes in one package soon, so that my child will be able to enjoy the entire series. So many shows these days have whiny kids that constantly display bad habits. This show displays good habits in every episode, and is a joy to watch. The Dvds and VHS episodes are difficult to find, and so we have not yet seen all 65 episodes. It will be wonderful when this show is either released online through an online provider like Amazon or Hulu, or released on a Blu-ray with all episodes intact. All children should grow up with shows like this or Mr. Roger's Neighborhood. They make the world a better place - especially for children.
