Word World: The Train Escapade (review & giveaway)

Word World is a show we used to watch on PBS when we had cable. Fast forward about a year and it's been a long time since we've seen this show. Moose had not forgotten it though! 

If you've never seen Word World, it's a very energetic cartoon where the animals and items are all made out of letters (dog is made out of DOG, pillow is made out of PILLOW). They "build a word" by spelling out the word (and the letters appear or are scattered and come together) and pushing them together to bind it into a thing or creature. The theme song is very catchy so beware that it will get stuck in your head (but it's much better than other kid songs that can be stuck there).

On this DVD there are 4 episodes that equal about 60 minutes (less if you flip through the previews):
-You Can Never Have Too Many "OO"s
-Duck's Hiccups
-Get Well Soon Soup

My kids were just glued to the tv. I try to share with you some of their responses, but there weren't very many this time. They just watched, enthralled. I played each episode separately instead of pushing "play all," and each time an episode ended, Moose asked "more dog." Apparently someone has a favorite character!

My favorite episode on this DVD is Get Well Soon Soup. Ant gets sick and his friend Pig tries to help him get better by making him get well soup. He also "builds" him a bed and pillow. It's very cute and sweet, I thought.
