Amazon Studios Tumble Leaf Series For Kids #TumbleLeaf

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Amazon Studios. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item to thank me for participating.

Play, Nature and Exploration. Over the years, those three things have been a huge part of my life as a mom. If those things are important to you too, you have to check out the new show, Tumble Leaf.

Tumble Leaf is Amazon Studio's first ever kids series aimed at pre-school aged children. Each episode follows a day in the life of “Fig the fox” who lives in a wrecked schooner ship by the sea. Within 3 minutes of turning on Tumble Leaf for the first time, my son said "I like this show." Take a look at this clip and I think you'll understand why.

I have to admit, it takes a lot to impress me when it comes to childrens' t.v. shows. There are some shows that my sons and I enjoy together, but others that I don't see any value in. Tumble Leaf was an instant hit with my 6-year -old son and I. From the moment we turned it on, he was completely captivated by the characters, story and environment, and from a parent's perspective, I was impressed as well.

In Tumble Leaf, Fig's journeys take place throughout a whimsical land filled with adventure and friendship. The stories have a wonderful balance of education and play, which for kids, can be one in the same. My son loved watching Fig and his friends explore their world and figure things out.

The characters are always learning something new. Through play, they are learning about science and engaging with the world around them. Tumble Leaf creates a supportive and magical environment and it has a beautiful, calming sound track to match. I could listen to the show's music for hours.

Have you seen Tumble Leaf yet?  

This show is now available on Amazon Prime Instant Video, and you can watch the first episode of Tumble Leaf for free on the Amazon Studios website. Just click the image below.

There's an App too!

Tumble Leaf recently launched a free Android app featuring six games inspired by objects and activities from the show. You can download the Tumble Leaf App  here.

It's been a long time since I fell in love with a new children's t.v. show, but the characters, music and appreciation of child's play in Tumble Leaf stole my heart. What do you think? What type of kid's shows do you love best?
