So much fun!

This is one of the best kid shows of all time! The theme song is catchy,the animation is nice,and it is WAY better than Being Ian & World Of Quest!

What's the story?

WILL & DEWITT follows the struggles faced by Will (voiced by Connor Price), who's in a hurry be a big kid but often stumbles over minor hurdles along the way. Good thing he can always count on his best buddy, Dewitt, an optimistic frog whose bubbly personality and shape-changing abilities keep Will hopping. No matter the problem, Dewitt is there with the means to the answer. In each episode, Will must conquer a typical childhood fear or challenge. In one segment, for example, he convinces his mom to buy him the same cool new boots his big brother has, but can't master their many zippers and buckles. In frustration, he tosses them aside and disappoints the eager, animated boots. But Will's tension turns to triumph when, with help from his brother and Dewitt, he finally masters the intricate footwear.

Is it any good?

Kids will easily relate to Will's quandaries and share his pride in his accomplishments and newfound self-confidence. Along the way, they'll also be reminded of the power of friendship and the importance of facing challenges head-on.

This enjoyable series also includes fun songs that relate to each episode's themes, reinforcing important lessons about self-discovery and personal belief. It's a great choice for older preschoolers and young grade-schoolers, who are likely facing many of the same woes Will encounters.

Talk to your kids about ...

  • Families can talk about facing challenges that seem daunting. Kids: How does Will work through problems? Who helps him? What similar challenges have you faced? How did you feel when you couldn't solve them? How long did it take you to figure it out? What did you learn from the process, and how did you feel when you were done?
