Wubbzy Escape From Dino Island DVD Review

 Wow Wow Wubbzy: Escape From Dino Island

Wubbzy is a favorite of my daughter, and she was thrilled when I popped this new DVD in to review! One of her playmates (my girlfriend’s son) is in preschool and loves dinosaurs so she has been going through a dinosaur kick, and consequently, the Dino Island episode is probably her favorite. I love how each segment is only 10 minutes long, so it’s short enough to keep TV time to a reasonable length if you only want your child to watch a couple of episodes, and they episodes are also short enough that children can follow along the storyline easily and remember the little lessons each episode highlights. 

Another well-loved episode has been Daisy’s Garden episode where she gets a purple thumb and thinks that her garden growing days have come to an end. My daughter dipped her thumb in some spaghetti sauce the other night and announced “Look, I have a purple thumb. No, an orange thumb!”. This has also been a fun episode for us to watch, because my daughter has been “helping” me with my little patio garden over the past few weeks and she is very excited about plants. This was another fun-filled DVD that will not disappoint your Wubbzy fans at home!
