Although their world is more fanciful and imaginative than our own, Wubbzy and his friends deal with the same social and developmental issues faced by preschoolers.  They learn how they fit into a group, how to understand their own feelings and those of others, how to get along with one another and about the value of friendship and community.

My Thoughts:

This is not the first Wow Wow Wubbzy DVD I have received from Anchor Bay Entertainment, and will not be my last, as this popular animated series which airs on Nick for kids, keeps coming out with exceptional quality programming.  Oh, and this is the first volume, so I expect more to come out soon :-)  Savannah became a fan of this series when her nephew visited last year.  Since then, she makes a point to tune it when Wow Wow Wubbzy is on television, as well as watches the handful of DVDs she has collected. :-)

And, now with this new release, Savannah is able to enjoy some of her favorite episodes. These six popular episodes from the hit Nick series, where voted on by fellow fans through Facebook and combined onto one DVD.  As a parent, I am always looking for children's programming that is not only entertaining to watch, but that always teaches important lessons.  When I watched Wow Wow Wubbzy for the first time with Savannah and my nephew, I knew we had a winner on our hands.  All of the episodes center around sharing, caring, friendship and working together.  The animated characters are fun to watch.  And, then story lines are easy to understand, even for the younger audiences. 

This fun filled DVD will have Wow Wow Wubbzy fans standing up and cheering, while asking for more.  Out of the six popular episodes from this Best of DVD, Volume 1, I have to say that Savannah's favorite is "Follow the Leader," as she keeps asking me to replay this episode.  The other episodes are just as good and featured throughout the DVD.  I caught myself singing a few in the shower, as well as in line at the market the other day. :-)

So, if you have a Wow Wow Wubbzy fan in your house, why not surprise them with this Best of DVD.  It was also make for a great stocking stuffer. :-)
