Wisharoo Park: Exciting Multimedia Entertainment for Preschoolers (Plus a Giveaway Worth $180; 6 Winners)!

If you’ve got a preschooler, you’ll definitely want to check out Wisharoo Park. It’s an entertaining and educational set of multimedia products designed to develop positive self-esteem, stimulate the imagination, and capture the hearts of kids aged three to six. Originally introduced as a PBS television series, it now includes an interactive website (WisharooPark.com), a DVD, apps for mobile devices, and much more!

I recently had the opportunity to watch the 2-disc DVD set, also called Wisharoo Park! It contains 13 episodes of the show, featuring loveable puppet and human characters engaged in songs and fun activities. Kids will meet Wisharoo (a kangaroo), Cali (an artistic bunny), Pompy (a skunk), Monkey B (a musical monkey), Ranger Bob, and many more delightful characters. My boys have been watching the DVD with me, and Austen was inspired to draw a picture of Monkey B! Check it out…
My kids also love playing with the Wisharoo star puppets! They’re called “wish stars,” and they feature prominently in the shows. Here’s a picture of Austen with the puppets on his fingers.


Kids will also love going to www.WisharooPark.com. There are fun games, videos from the shows, activities (with downloadable PDF instructions), and more. Wisharoo apps, eBooks and print books are planned for the near future! In addition, if you “like” Wisharoo Park on their Facebook page at www.facebook.com/WisharooPark, you’ll receive three free songs (a $2.97 value).

Wisharoo Park is a magical, musical adventure for kids. They’ll fall in love with the characters, sing along with the songs, and learn a lot while watching and playing online. I hope you’ll visit www.WisharooPark.com with your kids today!
