Here is a portion of my previous review:
WordWorld, the popular children's PBS preschool show, is airing a new holiday special this December. We were offered a chance to watch the advance holiday screener and my daughter loved it! The episodes titled The Christmas Star and A Christmas Present for Dog will air several times beginning Dec. 1st. Make sure to check your local television listings to find out when it is on in your area!
Still looking for a great holiday gift for your preschooler? WordWorld educational toys are available for purchase from Target.
We had the opportunity to try out the Mega Bloks WordWorld Bucket Set - Barn. The playset has been a really big hit with my daughter. The 49 piece set includes two WordFriends you can assemble (Cow and Pig), the tractor and cart, hay, a fence, windmill, and a shovel that all fit nicely into the BARN container. In addition, kids are able to use the 16 double-sided letter blocks to spell different words like CORN and ROPE. Best of all, the set can be used with other Mega Blok and Duplo sets for hours of play. My only complaint is that I wish more letter blocks were included so you could display the entire alphabet from A to Z. Luckily there are enough letters to spell out both my daughter's name and son's name, separately. I am unable to spell my own name with the letters that are included though. As a bonus, the set comes with a DVD that includes one WordWorld Episode.
