My Thoughts:

My girls become fans of this show when they stumbled across it on the streaming media player.  Now, they can't get enough of this show and its fun-loving characters, as they learn about proper nutrition, in a unique and exciting way.  So, when the girls saw that I had to review a new "The Wheels on the Bus" DVD release, they were all ready this past Friday to lend a hand.  And for the duration of the DVD, which is only 36 minutes in length -- perfect for little ones with short attention spans, they were glued to the television, watching Papaya and Mango teach them about healthy food choices, while taking them on fun-filled adventures.  Children ages 1-5 yrs. old will definitely love this series, which pairs talking puppets with real life people.  You rarely find a good children's show or series, for that matter, that focuses on healthy eating and nutrition.  But, I have to hand it to "The Wheels on the Bus" as they deliver. I wish I had known about this musical adventure series when I was doing nutrition programs in the school back during my health educator days, as I would have definitely incorporated this series into my lesson plans, and mentioned them to parents and teachers looking for great nutritional-based programs for little ones.

My girls loved this new DVD release from Entertainment One Home Video, which contains 3 full-length episodes, with music that will have them tapping their feet and dancing all around.  Keep an ear out for Roger Daltrey, who lends his voice to the character, Argon the Dragon.  :-)
