Fun and cute kids travel show

This is a lovely way to introduce the world to young kids. We really enjoyed watching the episodes of holiday locations we've been to and also for places where we have friends and family living. The show centres around a little frog and his two besties who travel the world making friends and having adventures. It can sometimes start a little slow with all the facts, but its cute and my son even learnt a few new phrases from it!

I love educational shows for Kids

This is a very fun and pleasantly cute show that isn't condescending, or full of ridiculous slap-stick nonsense like many children's shows today. I love that it not only promotes an educational slice of life that shows children a window into other cultures, but it promotes cultural friendship, tolerance and overall acceptance of things that may be different and unfamiliar. The characters are cute and lovable and at times very funny. I'm really hoping to see a second season of this show as it, in my opinion is a rare gem in the landscape of children's television

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (3 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

The clear goal of this series is to teach viewers about the world around them. In each episode, Hogie and his friends travel to new places, meet new people, learn about significant buildings, and eat different types of food. This helps to educate viewers to various cultures around the world. The characters and artwork in this animated show seem as though they would appeal to a younger audience, yet the writing is clearly for an older group as the vocabulary and description of things would be difficult for a younger child to follow. However, Hogie the Globehopper is effective in exposing and educating children about new cultures.
