Parents Need to Know
Parents Need to Know that The Peepkins podcast is geared towards the whole family. Each episode has its own catchy songs as Commander Hatch and Nick go on new adventures. The town villain, Baron Von Torius, tries to keep the town's spirits down, but Hatch and Nick work to cheer up him, along with the town people. Some humor is geared towards adults, like one episode titled "Coop D'etat," where Hatch and Nick try to overthrow greedy Baron's plans, but it's still playful and lighthearted enough for younger children. Young listeners learn lessons in friendship, teamwork, and courage.
Is It Any Good?
Unique and interesting adventures every episode. The Peepkins tells well thought out stories about the small town of Coopmore Ridge that families and kids of all ages can enjoy. Episodes do a nice job teaching lessons of friendship and courage, while also having plenty of humor and singing. Some concepts or words may be too mature for younger children, but generally well-oriented towards the whole family. On top of the great audio production quality, an added bonus is comedian Anna Faris voicing Commander Hatch. This fun and quirky podcast doesn't dissapoint.
