I think that all parents can relate to this confession: I steer my daughters towards television shows and movies that I like to watch too, or at least can tolerate in the background. If a character is whiny, rude or sings a really catchy but annoying song, I will do my best to squash that interest. The girls had seen a few episodes of Doozers on television and we all enjoyed it, but it was a tricky show to catch and often our PVR would miss the beginning or ending of the short episodes. I was quite happy when my friends at NCircle Entertainment sent us two new Doozers DVDs: “Meet the Pod Squad” and “Pod Squad Boogie”!
The Doozers are cute little creatures that you may remember if you grew up watching Jim Henson’s “Fraggle Rock” like I did. They’re back in animated form and the show focuses on four friends (Flex, Daisy Wheel, Spike and Molly Bolt) who call themselves the “Pod Squad” as they design, create and innovate. At 4 and 6 years old, my daughters are the exact age that this show is geared towards and they love it! The Doozers introduce a wide variety of STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) concepts in a way that is easy for children to understand, and it encourages creativity, teamwork and taking care of the environment. Both of my daughters said that their favourite part of each episode is seeing what the Doozers will create to solve whatever problem that they face, and I find that the episodes have really inspired them to work on new ‘creations’ using blocks and various craft supplies (and recycling!) that we have around the house. Each DVD runs for 90 minutes and will be released by NCircle Entertainment on September 29, 2015.
One lucky reader will win both “Doozers: Meet the Pod Squad” and “Doozers: Pod Squad Boogie” DVDs!
