What's the story?

Wissper is an animated preschool series about a little girl named Wissper who lives in a colorful neighborhood with her family, including brother Ralphie and baby bird friend Peggy. Wissper has a special gift -- she can hear and communicate with animals in need. She's able to magically travel to their location and help with whatever situation is causing them trouble, whether it's a giraffe with an itch or a koala having difficulty babysitting his cranky niece. This sweet, simple series shows kids examples of problem-solving and communication. 

Is it any good?

This sweet, mellow series gently teaches social-emotional lessons to preschoolers. It's especially appealing to kids who love animals and its Doctor Dolittle-esque vibe is wish fulfillment for those who've always dreamed of communicating with their favorite critters. There are a few questionable moments, like when Panda bear Dan advises Gertie the Giraffe to follow his lead and "wee on a tree" to keep bugs and other creatures away, so potty humor-sensitive parents may want to sit this one out. Overall, though, it's a pleasant watch and preschoolers may get some imaginative ideas for their own play here. 

Why is there a panda in the desert?
