Movie Reviews

An instant favorite in our house!
Kristen Stoller | Oakland, CA United States | 10/17/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"I received a screener of this DVD and watched it with my 4 year old daughter. It was an instant hit! She loved all the characters and immediately related to one child that looked just like her. She really loved learning about different cultures and recognizing some places and landmarks that she has seen in books and in our family travel photos. She literally wanted to pause it when I tried to talk to her about something so that she did not miss a second of the show.

Best of all is that I really loved the video too - the music and voices were great but not annoying like many other kid videos and there was such a wonderful, diverse and positive representation of many different people. I also really liked the combination of animated graphics and real-life imagery. It is important to me for her to see people, places, cultures, etc as they occur in the real world, not just in animation. Global Wonders is definitely on my go-to list as a great holiday gift this year!"
Thumbs Up!

"These are great videos for the preschool, pre-K and kindergarten crowd like my five-year-old Lucie who enjoyed the program immensely. She sang along with the music and repeated the foreign words and phrases when prompted. I enjoyed the animation and also liked how they approached world culture. The Global Wonders series puts an emphasis on what cultures share rather than differences - everyone celebrates birthdays, children like to play sports, and we all enjoy music. I appreciated that they showed grandparents and an African-American dad who is a college professor, too. Other positive role models include families who spend time together and children who like to learn, sing, be outside and play sports. Lucie and I give Global Wonders a thumbs up."
Parents! Great way to introduce different cultures!

"I screened this video with my five year old daughter. She loved it!! The characters are cute and interesting, the music is great and the "real-life" footage is entertaining. She was captivated throughout the entire video.... and I actually found it interesting as well. Vocabulary is introduced from several different languages - a learning experience for me too. This is a great way to expose your child to other cultures. I look forward to more. HIGHLY RECOMMEND!!"
Global Wow!

"We loved this video! My son Charlie made us watch it 5x. He loved the music and could not stop talking about all the characters.
It is very educational and perfect for our multi-cultural soceity. It helps promote understanding and openess to new cultures and attitudes. We highly reccomend it!"
