A cute and appropirate show for kids!

My 3 1/2 yr old enjoys it a lot. It touches on rules, sharing, friendship, family, being kind to eachother and adds in a little humor. I even enjoy it as well!!

Perfect!

Although I have not seen this TV show, I have to say, by the way it seems, sDSa, there is no reason to say that about this show. In fact I'm going to let my 4 year old watch it.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (2 ):
Kids say (2 ):

This inventive series takes a creative approach to kids' entertainment, using stories by preschoolers to craft a show for preschoolers. All of the show's situations and supporting characters are created or inspired by kids, and young viewers will easily relate to the characters' kid-sized problems (running out of a favorite snack, for instance). The show also lets real kids share the spotlight with the puppets, which helps show preschoolers just how exciting and entertaining make believe and pretend play can be.

The down side to the show is that because the tales do come from kids, the storylines are pretty juvenile and slow-moving. But while The Mighty Jungle might not be at the top of most parents' list of shows to watch with their kids, if you let them watch on their own, they can practice their storytelling skills when you ask them to recap the episode for you. With a little encouragement, the process could inspire them to tap into their imaginations and create their own original tales as well.
