Seems weird but a great teaching instrument..

"Great for children 1-3. My child has has learned to say brother, sister, auntie, man, drink and many other words from watching this video.
The scenes are repetitve skits, for example in Tall Drink a woman constantly moves from her comfy spot under a tree to refill her glass of juice, only she doesn't realise the glass has a hole. A narrator gives short sentences to tell you what's happening.
Big TV is set on a beach as a man turns on the TV set only to have an endless string of relatives turn on TVs within TVs...just as weird and cool as the Boobah's themselves.
For Big Windows all the characters play peekaboo behind curtains and near and far. Fun sound effects.
Of course, the fat Boobahs do lots of their usual energetic aerobicising (my baby's a fanatic of this) before curling into their space cocoons.
Admittedly and thankfully, the bonus "Look what I can do" segment is at the end and can be skipped as younger children don't really appreciate it. The creator of Boobah Anne Wood appears in a short interview at the end.
60 minutes long and very good value for money..."
All Boohbah dvds are great

"I think one of the previous reviews was really unfair. I too at first thought that the makers of Boobah were on some sort of drugs until I saw how my twin toddlers reacted to the show and then realized that the show is made with their young developing brains in mind. The show is brilliant in capturing it's appropriate audience. It teaches and deals with many age appropriate skills including problem solving, large motor development, cooperation, and coordination among many many others. I had to really watch the show a couple of times to get what it was that they were trying to accomplish in this show and I totally get it and applaud it. My girls love it and I am ordering all the rest of the dvds they have."
