Makes you want to play outside!

I love Tumble Leaf because of the unique take on problem solving. The overall energy of the show is gentle, kind and curiosity. There is no fighting, violence or abrasive personalities. When Fig and his friends stumble upon a “problem”, they use various scientific principles to solve it in a playful way. Reflection, ramps, pulleys, force, sound- they find nature objects to cover all of these topics. It just makes you want to go outside and build your own mechanism out of rocks and twine! And Fig signs off each episode by saying “Go play!”
