100% Diverse fun stories with educational value

This series has a full cast and voice over actors of Indian descent, with stories from Indian culture. Wissper deserves 5 stars for diversity. Each episode is bright and colorful, with singing; no problem is solved without teamwork and cooperation. There is never violence. What a great program for children.

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say: (1 ):
Kids say: Not yet rated

This sweet, mellow series gently teaches social-emotional lessons to preschoolers and may especially appeal to kids who love animals. Wissper's Doctor Dolittle-esque vibe is wish fulfillment for those who've always dreamed of communicating with their favorite critters, but there are a few questionable moments, like when panda bear Dan (Simon Zwiers) advises Gertie (Cystine Carreon) the giraffe to follow his lead and "wee on a tree" to keep bugs and other creatures away. Overall, though, it's a pleasant watch, and preschoolers may get some imaginative ideas for their own play here.
