My Thoughts:

The only reason why Savannah started watching this animated series on Sprout is that she loves cats, and the main character is a orange cat.  But, as we started to watch this popular television series, both of my girls started to get into it, and now they can't get enough of Poppy Cat and her friends.

If you have never seen this show, and have little ones at home, and have access to Sprout, or can pick up this upcoming DVD release next week, it is worth checking out.  The episodes all start and end the same...a little girl creates a story book to read to her cat, Poppy Cat.  Each of the stories she tells are full of adventure and include a hot air balloon that is created with a magic blanket Poppy Cat swipes into the air.  Poppy Cat, along with his friends who are different animals, set out on fun adventures.  In this upcoming DVD, the adventures surround around Poppy Cat's birthday, a cheese mountain, a robot, marshmallow mines and more.  

Little ones will love watching the episodes, as they are only about 10 minutes in length.  You will be surprised at how much fun and adventure can be squeezed into this little amount of time.  But, leave it Poppy Cat and her friends to keep your little ones engaged and entertained right up to the end where Poppy Cat always says goodbye to his friends, and we are brought back into what looks like the little girl's bedroom or living room, where Poppy Cat is laying on a comfy read, resting as she listens to the girls' imaginative stories.

Out of all the episodes included on this upcoming DVD, both of my girls said their favorite was the "Birthday Treasure" one, which finds Poppy Cat and her friends using a treasure map to find the secret treasure, which turns out to be a surprise party owl and the others have put together for Poppy Cat.

The theme of friendship is present in each episode, and I like seeing the fun, imaginative stories the little girl comes up with for Poppy Cat and his friends to go on.  This is one DVD we will be watching over and over again, for sure!
