Is anyone else’s kids hooked on Kazoops? The brilliant new pre-school TV show on ABC KIDS that started on August 1st in Australia by the amazingly talented Cheeky Little Media.
Naturally of course, I limit the amount of television and screen time the kids watch each week, however there are a few TV shows the kids adore and well ok I admit, I secretly like watching too. The newest one of them is Kazoops!
I will admit we are slightly partial to Kazoops as we know some of the fabulous peeps behind the production of the show, so I sat with the kids to watch the first episode, not knowing at all what it would be like but wanting to support our friends.
I loved the first episode but I wasn’t sure if my boys did. I asked them “so what did you think, should we watch it again?”, they jumped off the couch and shouted “YES!” I was of course over the moon as it meant I could say to my friends that their new show was most definitely loved by my boys and they couldn’t wait for the next episode to air!
What I love about Kazoops is the folksy music, written and recorded by Australian singer/ songwriter Scott Langley, I find the music stimulating for the kids and easy to listen to. My kids dance around the living room when it comes on and I love to watch them get into the music and vibe of the show.
But I think what I love most is that the series is all about “imagination”! It follows 6 year old Monty Kazoop and his fun loving pet pig, Jimmy Jones as they delve into their own creative imagination away from the preconceived adult world in which they live. Their friendship is built on a wonderful adventures and finding a new perspective to their every day lives.
For instance, he chooses to discover a fun new way to play when he is told it is raining outside and he must come inside. They like to think outside the box and I love that this TV series is teaching our kids critical thinking!
Here is a little trailer of Kazoops for you to check out just how fab this new show is AND a free printable for your kids to colour in! My kids have loved colouring in their fave characters from the show!
To watch Kazoops live it airs on ABC KIDS, weekdays 8am and 5.50pm.
Disclosure: – this is not a sponsored post however, I am friends with some of the production team but my post is a honest review of the TV show and how much my kids adore it.
