For 2-5 year olds. Join the word friends as they imbark on crazy adevntures and solve problems using spelling and word choice. Everything in this world is bit with letters, so that kids can see what each world is spelled as. It's a great show for kids, looking for some fun spelling adventures. Check out their website @

I think it’s a good show to help young children learn to read, but if you think about it, why is the world not just a giant word that say WORLD and also the theme song shows them digging up one of the animals from the ground, which means that they buried it alive? I think it’s good for young children as long as they don’t over think it

Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (25 ):
Kids say (20 ):

This unique series is designed to change the way preschoolers build the skills they need for future literacy. In one segment, for example, the friends happen upon an egg that's fallen from its tree. Sheep soon discovers that the egg is surprisingly restless and refuses to stay in one place for long. The group brainstorms ideas about how to make it more comfortable, and Frog suggests building a nest. He gathers the components he needs to spell the word, and when the N, E, S, and T come together, they morph into a cozy bed for the tired egg.

The show is perfectly suited for preschoolers' learning level, and it will entertain them as it reinforces their knowledge of letters, sounds, and simple words. With its imaginative design and with the various font styles used to create the letter-based objects, the WordWorld package is delightful enough to draw in parents almost as readily as kids.
