Engaging for my 5 year old boy. Many other shows tend to 'feminize' the characters. This seems more simple with the primary agenda being simple: how to figure out something. Fig the fox usually notices something that he and his friends don't understand, often thinking of it as scary or wild, then come to find out it was really mist that created the effect, or something rolling on the floor of the boat that was creating the knocking sound, etc. Good clean fun and learning. I like it because my son likes it and comes away with peace rather than anxt and confusion which so many of the modern shows are full of. I think there is a perception out there that a modern kid will only engage if every scene is full of conflict or highs. I do think my son is used to the multi-media experience full of sight, sound etc. However, it doesn't have to be busy, complicated, or full of conflict to keep his interest. Simplicity seems to keep him from exploding...
This little show is a nice, calm, but entertaining way to spend tv time. My son is 4 and loves it. I love it too, because it's sweet, beautiful, and not too overly stimulating like some other shows aimed at his age bracket can be. While I think the science lessons get a little lost in the fantastical world they are set in, the can-do attitude of the characters is not: now when my son encounters a problem, he says (exactly as the little fox, Fig, in the show says it) "Hmmm. Let me figure this out." And instead of immediately running for my assistance, he actually takes a minute to try to work out his problems for himself. I think that's a wonderful thing for him to take away from any show. In conclusion, I really like this sweet little show, and I hope very much that we see a few more seasons of it at least.
A favorite program of my 3-year old boy. Fun, delightful, and educational. I often wonder however, if Tumble Leaf is taking place in a post apocalyptic world. This might explain the lack of humans around with all the human tools/items Fig the Fox discovers that seem to get washed up on the beach. A post apocalyptic world might also explain the anthropomorphic animals, a blue fox and a magenta colored bear etc. All in all a great program! Highly recommended for young children!
We love this show. The animation is great and the colors are vibrant! It engages the kids with discovery, tinkering, problem solving, and some silliness. They can watch as fig the Fox explores rainbows, sound, gears sponges and more. As a mom I love how this show has well behaved characters and they can learn something while enjoying their TV time. 2 thumbs up we've been watching it for about a year, and the kids still ask for it!
My 3 year old loves this show! It's all about trying to figure out how and why things happen. Some of them are a little silly but I see my daughter trying to figure things out like Fig the fox and it makes me smile. As a parent I find this show cute and beautifully designed. I don't mind sitting down with my daughter to watch.
Great show for the little kid. Fig the fox teaches what new items are and how to use them. It also teaches good problem solving. The animation is pretty good and as a parent it's not a pain in The butt to watch 100 times. Please keep making more since there are only 2 seasons and as much as my boy loves it. I would appreciate some new episodes.
My kids love Tumble Leaf! It catches their attention and the animation is great! How the characters interact with the young audience is great as well. It doesn't talk down to them and is great in the imaginary to children. Kids love to explore and find things like treasures and fig the fox does exactly that. The stop motion animation is awesome also. Can't wait for more seasons!
