Buckalope Elementary: Review and Giveaway

When Sandy contacted me about doing a review of the first episode of Buckalope Elementary I was ready to receive it but knew nothing of the product. I was excited to learn that this was an Educational DVD with puppets. Something my kids love!
"Buckalope Elementary is a creative collaboration between Exclusive Education and Furry Friends Productions, whose mission is to provide an engaging childrens' enrichment program that promotes social, emotional, and academic development.

"Career Day" is the first of 12 episodes in our new puppet educational series, which focuses on character building with an emphasis on careers. Each chapter will present a different character trait, with the overall intention of giving kids a set of tools that will help motivate, coach, and guide them early on as they begin their educational journey."

My son is a TV junkie...but he won't admit it. But the kid could sit in front of the tv all day (but I don't let him of course...well, not every day ;)). He LOVES puppets. When we found the cat in the hat dvds that were puppets he went nuts. So, I knew he would love this DVD and I was not mistaken. From the moment the episode started with the lively puppets and catchy music he was glued to the tv. He learned more about different careers and how not everyone is made to be a famous musician or actor. He has asked to watch the dvd many times. He always asks to watch the "puppet show".

Bucalope Elementary has a great product here. The puppets are well made and they don't look cheesy. The songs are catchy and well written and the story line was great. My daughter loved to watch it too and asked lots of questions about the careers that were mentioned in the dvd. It was a great teaching opportunity. We look forward to catching the next episode.
