What's on Netflix?: WORD PARTY

Welcome to another installment of WHAT'S ON NETFLIX?, where we pick out a film or series currently playing on Netflix and review it for the fans. This week's selection is a children's series called WORD PARTY. It was created by The Jim Henson Company to help toddlers learn social skills and expand their vocabulary.

This series premiered on July 8, 2016 and three seasons have been produced thus far. Word Party is an entertaining and educational series. My three-year old nephew loves this show and he also learns important skills watching it.

It features four adorable animals who love to sing, play and dance.  They learn new words and other important lessons such as how to treat their friends and help others. This series also introduces a new technology, the Henson Digital Puppetry Studio. It allows puppeteers to perform digitally animated characters in real time.

Each episode is only 13 minutes long. I like that the episodes are not that long because most toddlers are easily distracted. Also, I've seen most if not all of them, so I'm only going to discuss one episode of each season.

An episode I enjoyed from Season 1 called "No Cupcakes for Lunch" was about the baby animals learning about vegetables. They played a game called "Restaurant" and Lulu doesn't know the name of the vegetable she wants. This was a great episode because it introduced toddlers to different types of food.

In Season 2, the series focused on nature, shapes and the senses. In the episode "Come Back Butterfly", the baby animals explore and find their favorite things in nature. Lulu is sad because her new friend flies away. This is a particularly good episode because it was a fun way to introduce young children to the world around them.

In Season 3,  the baby animals learn about the importance of friendship and manners. In the episode "Mind Your Manners", the other animals get upset with Lulu when she takes all their cookies. She learns new words about manners and sharing with her friends.

Word Party is a great series and it teaches young children important life lessons. I appreciate this series for its educational value. It's fantastic to find a children's series that is not only entertaining but educational.

Rotten Tomatoes has not yet given the show a score, which is the case for many kid's shows. Word Party uses innovative animation and finds a fun way to teach young children important life skills. This is the perfect series for any young child. Any parent with a young child should give this series a chance.

Lisa's Score: 9/10
