My girls were so excited to receive and help me review the December 2014 release, Julius Jr Snow Monkey Adventures, that I knew they would be over the moon excited when they saw Julius Jr.: Pirates and Superheroes arrive on our doorstep --- and, they were. If you have little ones who watch Nick Jr., then you have probably sat through an episode of Julius Jr. I have lost count of how many episodes I have watched (over and over again). But, I don't mind, as this hit animated series is really cute, and perfect for fans young and old of Paul Frank's lovable characters,including Julius Jr.
This recent DVD release includes six already aired full length episodes. Each episode is not only fun to watch, but also teaches little ones about things like teamwork, importance of friendship and using your imagination. Julius Jr. and his pals will whisk your child away on fun music-filled adventures that center around superheroes and super powers in these six episodes. As soon as my girls saw which episodes where included on this recent DVD, they were quick to grab their superhero capes and masks and flew all around the living room, acting out scenes to the show, as they watched these episodes.
This is definitely one show I don't mind my girls watching over and over again, as it really peaks this imagination and has them excited about exploring and pretending. Even if your child has never seen this animated series, this is one DVD you'll want to add to your child's collection, or even pick up to add to their Easter baskets, as it will provide hours of viewing enjoyment for years to come.
