Our family just survived a nasty stomach bug and I am so thankful that we had a new DVD from NCircle for my kids to watch while they felt yucky. The best part about being sick is getting to watch TV all day. 🙂
Floogals: Destination Planet Earth includes eight episodes featuring the Floogals. The Floogals are cute little animated aliens from the planet Floog. They have come to earth to explore and send reports back to their home planet. Episodes include the exploration of caterpillars, magnets, robots, hamsters and balloons. While the Floogals explore these common earthly things we get to learn more about how these things work. I am happy to report that while my poor kids were sick they learned a lot from the Floogals. Haha. 🙂
There are a couple things I really enjoyed as a mom watching the Floogals: Destination Planet Earth. One was that only the Floogals were animated. The rest of the show is real life non animated. Therefore my kids are seeing a real hamster on the screen while they learn about a hamster’s habitat, what they eat, and how to care for them. Second was the fact that the Floogals are in an actual “hoomans” (humans) house. It’s real life…..there are dust bunnies and toys shoved under the couch. Now THAT is real life, people. You can’t tell me that any family with kids has a squeaky clean house. High five to the creators of the Floogals for keeping it real!
My boys’ favourite episode was Project Balloon. My three year old loved the fact that Fleeker Floogal thought a balloon was a monster and ran terrified from it. Naturally Fleeker, Flo and Boomer had to investigate which led them to discover that balloons are filled with air and are not actually monsters. There were other scenes within the episodes that induced quite a few giggles from my little men. My eight year old’s favourite was when the “hoomans” announced that the baby needed to be changed and one of the Floogals asked horrified “Changed into what?!”. 😉
It is a very cute show. Sometimes I have a hard time sitting through entire kids’ TV shows but this one I can handle. I have actually watched it a few times with my little gang.
If you want your kids to learn a bit more about caterpillars and metamorphosis, how bubbles are created, what a hamster is and how to care for one, and how a magnet works then call on the Floogals to help you out. Floogals: Destination Planet Earth can be watched episode by episode or you can have a marathon and watch all eight episodes in one day! Hopefully it isn’t because you have a house full of sick kids. 🙁
