We are always on the lookout for lifelong creative learning when it comes to our kids and smart devices. Always fun to find are new animated shows that really take animation to the next level. Available for Amazon Prime members is an Amazon Original Series Tumble Leaf. This fun series is really neat in how its created. To check out the whole series you do have to be an Amazon Prime subscriber.
I am hesitant on letting my kids control their devices, but when I can find things I enjoy them watching them its ok. While I don’t mind letting my kids watch a fun video or movie, or play new games and learn, there is a lot of meaningless content on the internet.
So to me, content my kids take in needs to be of quality, something with substance. To many videos online of people playing with toys, or kids being spoiled, none of it is good for young learners. I prefer to pick high quality filming and videos that educate. Lucky for me there is a lot of awesome programming available and being created. There is so much to learn by watching others creations.
Whats great about being online is the access to so much programming. Amazon is a great example of access to great shows and movies, but also creates their own programming.
One fun show they have is Tumble Leaf available on Amazon. This is a fun stop motion series about a coupe of animal characters who are constantly exploring their natural surroundings while also learning science. We are very big in all of those; nature, science, and exploring!
Tumble Leaf is about a delightfully curious blue fox named Fig and a best pal of his named Stick, and caterpillar.
What I found to be fun about Tumble Leaf is their unique stop motion design. Not only is it fluid, it looks amazing, because it is not just computer animation but real life figures. I love art of all kinds, and I know my kinds have that gene in them. While CGI is cool and neat, I think its so much more immersing to have some real life to see, to imagine being a part of. For me, as a kid I grew up in a metro city of Oregon, but was lucky to have a forest behind my house. I also grew up in the foothills of Mt.Hood as a child and loved being outside and learning, so Tumble Leaf is great for me.
Living in Southern California, its been a natural shock and wears the more we live here. Our kids love nature and miss Oregon, so we love to get into real nature as often as possible, regardless of the environment and terrain. Tumble Leaf was fun bring us back to the outdoors we love!
