New Amazon Original Kids' Series WISHENPOOF

This is a sponsored post, all thoughts and opinions are my own.

 From the Creator of preschool favorites like Blue's Clues and Super Why!, Angela Santomero brings us a NEW Amazon Original animated series, Wishenpoof, with a little girl named Bianca and her friend, Bob the Bear. On Wishenpoof, Bianca solves life's problems in her own creative ways. Even though she has "wishing magic", she learns that with a little belief in your self, magic isn't always needed. {Wishenpoof is available starting today, August 14th, for Amazon Prime members.}


McKinley and I had the privilege of previewing the first season together. She was instantly drawn to Bianca's ability to "wish" herself to a new adventure destination. But, as one episode continued, I loved that Bianca's mother encouraged her to not use her magic for everything. Instead, she was told that she could believe in herself {and show others that she believed in them} to get through a tough situation.


Since we don't have wishing magic, it's important for me to teach my kids that they can do anything they put their minds to if they believe in themselves. And well, if they fail, that's ok too. I really enjoyed watching Wishenpoof with McKinley and learning from her which she thought was the right choice in Bianca's decisions. Should she have used magic to help Penelope? Was it nice that she bought a ice pop for her brother, rather than use her magic? These questions helped McKinley and I have a back and forth conversation about believing in yourself and in others.
