This show is extremely refreshing! Not only is it very educational, but beautiful & visually stimulating. As an adult, I've learned quite a bit about ocean animals - I especially enjoy the oarfish episode. It sparked enough of an interest that I looked it up & learned even more about the Giant Oarfish! My son is nearly three (as of April 6, 2013), and he absolutely LOVES Kwazii & the gang! (Kwazii is his absolute favorite, though.) The voices are so nice to listen to, and not once does the show (or anyone IN IT) ask your child to "yell", "say it louder", or "scream". In fact, the characters don't talk directly to your child - which is refreshing! They speak to each other about teamwork, determination, learning, and helping other creatures out. The show not only features a new sea creature every episode, but also facts about the ocean in general - for example, in one episode, they talk about how a reef is a living organism, and work to heal the "sick" reef! In another, the Octonauts teach the viewer about underwater volcanoes, and rescue many sea creature by helping them escape before it erupts. Another one of my favorites teaches about underwater thermal vents while learning about a new species of worm in the deepest part of the ocean they call "The Midnight Zone" (also the name of the episode)! I like this show mostly because it helps my son to look at the world around him, and realize that there are other around us who may need our help; yet, it doesn't make me want to stick my fingers in my ears to escape the noise. It's a wonderful show, and I just love the songs that come with it!
