Now that kids are spending more time on tablets and other mobile devices, Amazon Studios is creating educational, thought provoking programming for kids that you can only find on Amazon Prime Instant Video - YAY! If you've been following Tristin + Tyler from day 1 - when the boys were about 6 years old - you know that educational content is where the boys got their start and we are big fans of kids media with a purpose. We believe in kids watching programming that inspires and educates. We're glad to report that Amazon Studios believes in these ideals as well. First up on their kids programming slate, Tumble Leaf - a whimsical, stop-motion, pre-school adventure series about a blue fox learning important lessons through play. In each episode, you are invited to Tumble Leaf to follow Fig the blue fox and his friends Hedge, Stick and Maple learn science through play. Thanks to The Moms, we got a chance to watch 4 episodes of the series at a special screening event before it premieres on Amazon Prime Instant Video on May 23rd!
We also got to learn about the process of creating such a dynamic series directly from the creators of Tumble Leaf, meet Dr. Alice Wilder, who creates and develops educational products and programs for kids, and chat with our pal Angela Santomero, the creator of Blues Clues, Daniel Tiger's Neighborhood and another new Amazon kids series, Creative Galaxy. We are excited about Tumble Leaf and all of the other fun series Amazon plans to premiere over the summer! We will be watching for sure! Will you?
Make sure to check out the Tumble Leaf and let us know what you think! xx
