Mia and Me- Friends to the Rescue DVD ~ Review

Finding animated shows that my tween will enjoy without believing they are "too kiddie", in her words, has become a challenge. She is at that in between stage kids go through, and I am so happy we recently found a show that she can enjoy viewing that keeps the issues simple and age appropriate- Mia and Me- Friends to the Rescue DVD.

Mia and Me is a unique program that includes both live action and animation. The main character Mia is a 12 year old girl. She is attending boarding school in Florence, Italy. Mia is trying to fit in with her classmates, but has a secret life one where she is able to transport through a high tech portal to animated land of Centopia. She used to read about this place in an ancient book of myths, and finds herself in an exciting land of elves, unicorns, dragons and more. As she is bouncing back and forth from her boarding school life and secret elf life, Mia discovers she is the key to saving Centopia from the evil Queen Panthea.

Wild Kratts Super Sprinters ~ PBS KIDS Review

*I received the product below for reviewing purposes, but was not required to write a positive review. All opinions and content are my own. see disclosure.

Since both of my older two kids were little they have been fascinated with all things animals. We read books, watch movies and documentaries too. One of the shows my son loves to watch when he can is Wild Kratts on PBS KIDS

Wild Kratts is a cartoon, with real life segments at the beginning and end, that teaches about animals in a fun way. Chris and Martin Kratt team up with a few friends to study animals of all kinds in their habitat, and find out all about their unique features to see what makes them awesome. They use fun gadgets and travel around the globe on their adventures to learn more. Together with their team the Kratts take what they have learned and create their Creature Power Suits which allow the Kratts to, in a way, become that specific creature, and experience what it's like to be them which sometimes can be quite silly.
