On Sunday, my preschooler and I sat down for the series premiere of Julius Jr. on Nick Jr. This new show is based on the Paul Frank characters your kids are going to love getting to know! My son loves all animals – especially monkeys – so I knew he would enjoy watching Julius Jr.
Julius Jr. stars as a lovable monkey, who along with his best friends Worry Bear, Sheree, Clancy, and Ping, enjoy magical adventures in every episode. We watched the first show called “Butterfly Dreams.” Julius Jr. and friends help a millipede who dreams of flying like a butterfly.
I really like how Julius Jr. is an inventor who is always coming up with creative ideas. His catch phrase, “The best inventions are the ones that help your friends,” is a great example of how the show helps teach preschoolers to use their imaginations and how to interact with others.
Q. What was your favorite part of the show? The butterfly.
Q. What did you like about the butterfly? A. When they were all flying. (Julius Jr.’s invention helps the millipede fly like a butterfly and all the friends take a fun flight on the millipede.)
Q. What else did you like? A. The monkey found the toy behind the couch. (Worry Bear is sad when he loses his cuddle toy and the friends invent something to help him.)
Q. Do you want to watch Julius Jr. again? A. YES!
Q. Did you like Julius Jr.? A. YES!
