We absolutely adore Tuble Leaf!!! Thank you Drew Hodges and team! Our kids dance to the song, snuggle and watch the show with us. We are so happy watching them learn from such an artistically accomplished work. Knowing that every scene is reall and all the characters are physical characters makes it even more precious, it's a beautiful craft that truly deserves all the credit in the world. We love you guys!
What a great cartoon! This is such a well made show and the music is wonderful. I think I like it more than our 2 year old son. This is one of his go-to cartoon choices on Kindle, second only to Blaze and the Monster Machines. Such a relief to find a decently made cartoon that isn't stupid with headache inducing music and character voices. Alvin and the Chipmunks - just stick bamboo shoots under my nails now. I think kids 2-6 years would probably like this cartoon. Ours is only 2 years, so I can't speak to whether it will hold his interest as he gets older but I could see kindergartners liking this cartoon quite a bit. The characters and story lines are engaging, and they're not too long - each episode has two mini-stories with items from the "Finding Place". Please keep making this one, Amazon!
This show is great in a couple of ways. First of all, as a parent of a 2 year old. So let's face it, I may sometimes almost bribe my child to watch it so I can be sain. I can only handle so much Jake the pirate or octonauts. Geez. This show a show I can fall asleep to if I have to. Secondly, my child loves it. I love the sound, look, feel, and lessons in the show. One show I don't mind him watching tons of.... I wish there were more. Hey Amazon, can you work on that please. :-)
Season 2 Continues to be great - Our daughter really loves tumble leaf, when we ask her what she wants to watch before bed she always asks for tumble leaf. Its bright, fun and full of character. We think it gives kids a look at the many ways you can use an everyday objects. We really like that the main character Fig doesnt always know what to do with something , or even what it is, but he goes out and uses problem solving to find out. The show uses a lot of words in fun ways and seems great for vocabulary. It isn't hugely repetitive like many annoying kids cartoons so while we have seen every episode many times, I'm not opposed to watch them again with our child. The show is animated with stop motion and every scene is full of life and interest, its very well done and a joy to watch especially if your a fan of good stop motion. One of our friends pointed out that its a bit fantastical at times, but its a kids show and we don't think there's anything wrong with that.
My daughter is SUCH A FAN!! So much that she asked for a Tumble Leaf cake for her birthday! She specifically asked for the crab from Tumble leaf and a palm tree. Just made it and celebrated her birthday today! Had to share. I think that speaks volumes about how great the show is.....
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 is the same review I will give for Season 1, since the two groups of grandchildren tended to skip around between episodes and seasons.I pulled this up once for grandchildren 2-5 yrs old and they absolutely loved it. It is geared for that age group which means that grown-ups might wonder why the little ones are so enthralled. It doesn't matter. Each episode features 2 mini-episodes centered around an item that must be 'figured' out and properly utilized. Along the way, problems are solved and friends are helped and all ends well. There are standard catch phrases that are quickly memorized and repeated--a lot--by the watchers. The messages are positive and the situations require some puzzle solving and associative reasoning. This is an excellent effort by Amazon.
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.
My kids and I watched Tumble Leaf for the first time a few days ago. My kids really enjoyed Tumble Leaf and keep asking to watch it. The show keeps their attention for the entirety of an episode. I like it because it teaches problem solving and friendship. In every episode the characters have to solve a problem. At the beginning of each episode Tumble Leaf goes to his Finding Place where he discovers a new object every day and learns how to use the object or what the object does. It is a cute show.
This is a great movie for the little one's in your life. My 3-year-old grandson loves to watch T.V. but I don't allow him to just watch anything. I feel like today there is so much bad on T.V and most of it is not anything I want my grandson to be watching. I saw this movie and it came with my amazon prime, so I was happy about that. If I put on a show that he does not like or it can't keep his attention for any amount of time he lets me know real quick. He sat through the whole season 2 and never blinked once. He loves tumble leaf and ask to watch it about 3x's a day.
