My baby girl is going to be starting Kindergarten in about a week and a half… Say What??!! As we prepare for back to school, I often wonder where has the last almost 6 years gone that she should be going to big school and I wonder how well she will do since she is so shy with adults. We have had her in preschool for the last three years and that has helped her slowly come out of her shell, but still she freezes when confronted directly by an adult. As we were sitting watching a preview of a new show coming out on Amazon Prime August 14th called Wishenpoof, it helped open a way for us to talk about what is coming for her and how to deal with those emotions.
Here is the premise behind “WishenPoof”:
Created by Angela C. Santomero (Blue’s Clues, Creative Galaxy, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Super Why!), and produced by Out of the Blue Enterprises, Wishenpoof is an animated preschool series that revolves around Bianca (Addison Holley, Annedroids, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood) as she solves life’s problems in her own creative ways because with magic, or without, we all have the power to make good choices. Wishenpoof is Executive Produced by Santomero, Samantha Freeman (Super Why!, Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood, Creative Galaxy), Wendy Harris (Blue’s Clues, Super Why!, Creative Galaxy), Steven DeNure (Hank Zipzer), and Anne Loi (Chop Socky Chooks).
My daughter was instantly hooked. She loved how Bianca could transform herself into a pretty fairy like girl who could do magic, but also looked like a down to earth girl with her cute sneakers on. The beauty of this show is that Bianca can use magic and wishes to make things happen and her imagination powers were endless, but she also found ways to use her brain to solve problems without magic and learn life lessons. In one of the episodes, she uses magic to create an enchanted forest with a baby unicorn. While there another horse wasn’t letting the unicorn eat grass. Instead of magic she used her words to help the unicorn out and get the purple horse to move so they could both eat. She learns to speak up for her friends. 4
Her sidekick Bob the Bear is just so fun. He helps Bianca remember the lessons she has learned and is a great friend to her. Bianca’s magic doesn’t always go as she wishes, but she keep trying until she gets it right.
I love the sweet messages in this show and don’t worry even boys will like it too. A show that teaches kids to be nice to each other and so much more. I am sure my daughter will be on our Amazon Prime account tomorrow watching Wishenpoof over and over again. My hope is that it also helps her with some of her shyness and learning to love others.
Get ready to watch Wishenpoof on Amazon Prime for US, UK, and Germany starting August 14th! I know we will be 🙂
