Review & Giveaway: WordWorld- The Train Escapades

Now this is a show I'm not sure who loves more...the kids or me! I think we watch almost every PBS cartoon there is and when I saw this one I thought it was the cutest thing ever. Every animal, object, item, whatever it is, uses the letters to create the shape. Ok that doesn't sound right. Here's an example, a radio is made up of the letters R-A-D-I-O. The ant is composed of the letters A-N-T. Kind of like his head is the A, middle piece is N, and the tail piece is T. It's just so creative. I wish I was that creative...LOL.

Anyways on May 3, a few weeks ago, WordWorld released it's latest DVD collection- WordWorld: The Train Escapades. There are four great episodes included that run for a total of 60 minutes. Perfect for short trips in the car or if you want a wind down show for the kids to watch before bedtime.


Synopsis
You Can Never Have Too Many Oo’s: When the two letter O’s in Monkey’s roof blow away in the wind, it’s up to Duck to hunt down the /oo/ sound and fix the roof before it rains.  Can Kangaroo and Duck save the day?
Ducks Hiccups: When Duck drinks down a glass of water too quickly, he gets the hiccups for the first time ever! His WordFriends try every trick in the book to help him, but which cure will work?
Achoo!: Pig is allergic to peaches!  When Sheep brings Pig a big bag of peaches to make pies, Pig starts sneezing so much that he can’t even tell Sheep what he really needs is a… a… apples. 
Get Well Soon Soup: When ant gets sick, Pig tries to take care of him by making his special Get-Well-Soon soup. It has all the letters in the alphabet in it, so Pig can build any word that ant needs to feel better. 

My Take: I think the kids had already seen all these episodes on TV but that didn't stop them from watching them again. They love this show! I think they favorite characters are pig and frog. I personally like Duck. The best is watching Pig making the soup with all the letters in it. My kids love to point out the letters they know and have actually learned a few new letters from watching this. As a parent I love how it reinforces spelling, letter recognition, and comparing the actual transformation of letters to words to objects. It's great! 
Buy it: This DVD is currently available for sale for the price of $11.99 on Amazon.com. And it's eligible for free super saver shipping or free 2 day if you have amazon prime!
