Thanks for supporting my blog and Wisharoo Park!




Children and computers are as common as children with toys nowadays.  I don't mind my children playing on the computer because I think it gives them the skill sets they will need later to learn, develop and stay ahead or keep up with others.  The great thing about computers and the internet are the learning abilities and the fun they can have.  I love the concept of:  Wish.  Play.  Learn.  It's easy but concise as it's what being a child is about. They wish, they play and during both, they learn.  To have all three is a wonderful beginning in helping children expand on many fronts which is where Wisharoo Park comes in.


I received what I have seen as a beautiful chocolate gift baskets full of Wish Stars and a 2-disc DVD of Wisharoo Park.  Unfortunately, I live in the desert so the chocolate melted.  Rest assured, I was able to sample it even if it was melted and I could cry because it was yummy!  I was able to salvage a few of the cute whimsical Wish Star finger puppets so after cleaning those and the DVD up, we were ready to go Wish, Play and Learn!

Wisharoo Park is full of fun characters and a very happy host that reminded me of Heather Graham.  They incorporate songs into fun learning experiences and with children, they don't always know when they are being taught something so it makes it even more fun for parents.  Wisharoo Park is geared towards the preschool audience or around ages 3 to 6 although my 8 year old didn't mind watching it with her 4 year old sister.  It started on PBS and all 13 episodes are available on this 2-disc DVD set!  The other cool part is there is an online site (http://www.wisharoopark.com/) that provides so much for children:

  • Games
  • Videos
  • Activities
  • Park Pals
  • Wish Story
  • Story Time
For parents, there are tabs for parents only, what's new, about Wisharoo Park, community, store, press room and FAQ.  Parents will find that the Wisharoo Park series is a 'technology-based curriculum that helps children discover and understand their own personal strengths which promotes greater self-esteem and a positive self-image.'  These are vital to any person in my opinion from childhood to being an adult.

Here is a sample:










The Review:


Both my younger children (ages 4 and 8) and my grandchild (age 8 months) watched the DVDs a couple of times so far.  I think the two youngest enjoyed the colorful characters and the catchy songs.  They took turns with the Wish Star puppets and had a good time.  I myself, enjoyed the teaching aspect the most.  I don't rely on shows to teach but when the opportunity arises that the girls can watch something that is fun to them while teaching, I'll jump on that!  Too many shows don't teach so we don't watch much but with Wisharoo Park, I'm definitely alright with letting them watch it more.  It's catchy, it's fun and with all those wonderful characters, it's perfect for the kids.
