Movie Reviews

Logic, Science & Humanity(?)-- All in One Show! A review of
Pam Tee | 01/30/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"If you are tired of all the twaddle out there in TV land for preschoolers and kindergarteners, you have come to the right place. Peep not only has cute characters, it has a point to all of it's stories. And not just facts!

[Not that there is anything wrong with facts, but facts alone do not an education make.]

What really stands out about this series, in my opinion, is it's ability to teach children reasoning skills. Every episode has a problem and Peep, Duck (my personal favorite), Chirp and company demonstrate the various ways that one can look at the problem; and how one might approach the problem to solve it.

Failure? That just means you need to think some more, maybe reframe the problem, and try again.

Four Stars. Great price for these three DVD's. Cute characters and charming, simple presentation that children can't resist. (Mom either--lol) The stories provide teaching moments that most other shows don't. Logic and reasoning as well as facts."
Great for infant and beyond!

"PROS:

1. Joan Cusack narrates them. :-)
2. They help to introduce science to children. Of course at 6 months old my daughter was not capable of following along with the scientific examples and experiments but infants do get a lot out of the simple, colorful shapes moving about and the wonderful music!
3. As my daughter has grown (far too fast too) she has been able to follow along with the real children at the end of each episode. They not only help her experiment with the world around her but also help give me ideas for projects that will expand her mind and creativity.
4. No ulterior motives. I know this may not pertain to many people, but sometimes books and cartoons can go too far for many parents in trying to establish extremities in concepts those parents would rather keep from their children (extreme sharing, extreme or lack of nature conservation, etc.). If this does not pertain to you, disregard this "pro" then. But if it does, know that Peep and the Big Wide World strives to bring science and exploration into children's lives and does it without any "hidden messages".
5. The theme song. That theme song along would send my daughter into dance and laughter so fast! It's catchy, fun and unfortunately too short. Do not be disappointed if you need to replay the theme song over and over and over! :-)
6. The experiments and projects that are featured in correlation after each episode are tailored to children and are meant to extremely for parents to execute for their kids! Sometimes you like to go to great lengths to provide entertainment and education for your kids, but these experiments and projects are set up so that you can easily execute them on a daily basis. Bravo!

CONS:

1. There are not enough episodes. Hey, it is the only con I could think of! But then there are new ones being produced. We will just need to wait for additional DVDs to be released.

CONCLUSION:

If you have children between the age of 3 months and 12 or older, they can benefit from Peep. I would highly recommend at least purchasing a single DVD. But a warning, you'll be hooked and want them all! :-)"
Peep, Chirp, and Quack explore and learn about the world in
Midwest Book Review | Oregon, WI USA | 01/14/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Peep And His Pals is a three-DVD set of the Emmy-award winning, educational Peep television series for preschoolers. Peep, Chirp, and Quack explore and learn about the world in fun and exciting adventures; Peep discovers secrets about the night, or chases the perfect leaf on a windy day; Chirp tries to fly, with a little help from his friends; and much more. Then real children experiment, play, and discover the wonders of the big wide world, from what grows under a pile of leaves to following one's nose on a grand smelling adventure. The Peep and His Pals set includes three classic DVDs: "Peep Explores", "Chirp Flies", and "Quack Knows it All", and features bilingual English/Spanish programs, downloadable anywhere science activities for young children, coloring pages, and more. Highly recommended. Approx 180 minutes, color."
Cannot stress how good this cartoon is

"I absolutely love watching Peep with my daughter. We began to watch it when she was 22 mos old and has loved it ever since. It's comical for adults while at the same time at a different level funny for the youngsters. I like how it incorporates science with humor and great story-telling. We began to watch it on The Learning Channel via satellite while living in the caribbean, and continued to watch it in Canada. If you don't get this on your cable or satellite, order it. You will not regret it. Your child will want to watch it repeatedly."
