I love PBS Kids shows. They entertain my kids plus teach them all sorts of skills, without them really realizing they are learning. We have partnered with PBS Kids to add several PBS Kids DVDs to our collection, including the newly released Peg + Cat: Out of this World.
The Peg + Cat animated series is geared towards children ages 3 to 5 years old, and focuses on foundational math concepts and skills. It’s so smart that my 6-year-old (almost first grader) still enjoys watching this show with my preschooler. They both really like watching the main characters, a little girl named Peg and her sidekick Cat. They go on adventures where the end up needing to use math skills to solve problems. The storylines are entertaining for pre-K and young elementary age students.
Kids love outer space, which is where Peg + Cat’s latest adventures take them. In this DVD, Peg and Cat have to put their heads together to fix their spaceship, outsmart Big Mouth (a crafty space alien who loves to dance), and win a cosmic t-ball game. Good thing they’re great at spotting patterns and working together as a team. Join Peg and Cat as they visit the Purple Planet and use their TOTALLY AWESOME math skills to solve problems and have fun-filled space adventures.
Peg + Cat Out of this World has a run time of 60 minutes and includes four stories:
- The Doohickey Problem: When their space ship is smashed, Peg and Cat must reassemble its variously shaped parts, and retrieve 16 stolen doohickeys.
- The Long Line Problem: While waiting in a long line, Peg and Cat try to help Richard realize his dream of being first in line for the first time.
- Richard the Third: At Richard’s family’s highly competitive annual picnic, Peg and Cat try to help Richard achieve his dream of not coming in third in every single event.
- The T-Ball Problem: Peg’s t-ball team, the Mighty Nine, have no chance against a team of alien all-stars – unless Peg can use the aliens’ t-ball cards to predict where they’ll hit.
