Wisharoo Park Review and GIVEAWAY!! 6 winners! **ENDED**


Birthday Gift Idea!! 

Wisharoo Park is a multimedia program dedicated to promoting positive self-image and self-esteem in preschool age children. It was originally introduced by airing as a children’s TV series on PBS stations across the country now includes an interactive website, DVDs and more! 

Unique among preschool programs, Wisharoo Park is designed to help children age 3 – 6 recognize and appreciate their individuality.  Wisharoo Park helps children discover and understand their personal strengths and put them on the road to developing greater self-esteem.  The Wisharoopark.com  online community stars a cast of animated, puppet and human characters who are featured in games, videos, music and more!  Each week, new activities and content are added to help keep children engaged and excited about the program.

Review: I was given an awesome product package to review. It included a Wisharoo Park DVD, an assortment of collectable Wish Star finger puppets, and an amazing chocolate bowl!!


My daughter, Bella, is 5 and so she was very excited to watch the DVD.  The show is really cute and there are 13 episodes included. The show is geared toward younger children (3-6) and my daughter, who enjoys both preschool shows as well as older shows, enjoyed the show. I asked for her opinion on the show and she got a very wide grin on her face and said, "It is really nice. I like everything about it". The shows are a mixture  of lessons, activities, and songs. She used her finger puppets while using the show and was very engaged with the interactive series. The puppets, costumes, and sets are really colorful making the show visually appealing.

The website is also really great. There is a nice assortment of games, videos, and activities. Since it is becoming more and more important for children to be computer literate at earlier ages, I have found it very important for my children to get used to being on the computer. This website is really great and my daughter was easily able to play the games which she found very entertaining.

Connect Here: Your child can get familiar with Wisharoo Park for free on their website!

Buy it Here: You can purchase Wisharoo Park products from their online store.  The DVD is available for $19.99, a pack of three Wish Stars finger puppets are sold for $9.99, and Wisharoo Park songs are available on iTunes.

Win it here: Three (3) Grand Prize winners will each receive a package containing one Wisharoo Park DVD and six Wish Stars ($40 value) PLUS three (3) runners-up will receive a set of six Wish Star finger puppets ($20 value)!!

What I like about Wisharoo is the fact that children absorb cartoon's more than anything else. This is a great place to build their
foundation to self esteem.
