"Join the adventure when the hugely imaginative series “Justin Time” arrives on DVD in three volumes March 18 from Cinedigm. Nominated for a 2013 Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Preschool Animation Program and six Annie Awards, “Justin Time” has garnered massive popularity since it made its U.S. broadcast premiere on Sprout in 2012.

Packed with preschool themes including animals, science and nature, the innovative and incredibly fun series follows the wild imaginations of Justin and his friends, Olive and Squidgy, as they travel to fascinating places including Ancient Egypt, the Ice Age, the Old West, and more, for unforgettable, action-packed adventures.

Aired in over 70 countries on top broadcasters such as Disney (Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, Italy), Discovery Familia (U.S.), and Discovery (Latin America), Justin Time” is currently Sprout’s #1 highest rated program for ages 2-11 and the highest rated series on the channel’s website. “Justin Time” is also the #1 rated program for ages 2-5 on NBC’s Saturday morning kids block. With two books inspired by the series out now by Immedium, and a global consumer products program on the horizon, there’s no better time to relive the animated adventures of Justin Time Amazing Adventures,” “Justin Time Goes Exploring,”and “Justin Time Far Away Friends.”

The third season of “Justin Time” is currently in development and planned for delivery in 2015. Knockout Licensing is the Licensing Agent in the US and Canada, and recently signed multi-territory deals for the “Justin Time” with LeapFrog and Café Press.

Synopsis

Everyday Justin jumps into an exciting new childhood adventure. To understand and solve the situation, he imagines alternate scenarios where he and his friends are different people in different places. They ride rockets into space, discover new worlds with the Vikings and chase Cleopatra’s cat through the pyramids of Egypt. Often, Justin meets an animal who needs help, and in figuring out how to lend a hand, he learns lessons about science and nature. At the end of each show, Justin leaves his dream world to discover his mom or dad waiting for him to do some kind of activity, such as skating or building a birdhouse, and Justin is able to share with them what he has learned."

My Thoughts:

I wish I had known about this series a few years ago, as I would have definitely watched it with Savannah. But, thanks to this new DVD set, I am able to share this popular animated series geared towards preschoolers with Bella and Savannah now.

If you had never heard about "Justin Time," is a show about a very imaginative boy named Justin, who encounters real world problems that most preschoolers will have to deal with including sharing, teamwork and paying attention.  Oh, what an imagination this little boy has.  Each and every episode is filled with fun adventures as Justin, Squiddy, a shape-shifting sidekick and their best friend Olive are transported to new places in order to accomplish a specific tasks.

The story lines of each episode are easy to follow, especially for the youngest of viewers, and the short length of each, make them just the right length to keep kids engaged.  I was surprised as all the fun things that my girls were learning, and how they were building their problem solving skills, as they followed along as Justin and his friends solved problems before returning to the real world.

This is truly a wonderful "make believe" series that preschoolers will just eat up.  My girls are hooked, and we are only through the first 2 DVDs.  Tomorrow, we will be starting on "Far Away Friends," of which Savannah is excited to watch the"Brave Sir Justin & Cleopatra’s Cat" episode as she loves cats.

So, if you have a preschooler in your house who loves "Justin Time," or you are just looking for great educational programming to share with them, that will help teach valuable life lessons, while also providing hours of entertaining viewing, then you will want to check out the new 3-Volume DVD of "Justin Time," which will be available to own starting tomorrow.
