I usually don't write reviews on shows. A little about me and how I rate: I'm a parent who attempts to find shows that will not only entertain my son (4-yrs), but educate, inspire, or teach him values. I'm not a fan of 'empty' cartoons.

Before having my son watch 'Creative Galaxy', I actually first watched an episode myself. I was impressed and knew right away, not only would he enjoy it; but also, how it would impact him. The show inspires creativity and mildly educates. After watching an episode, he immediately built a house for his alien... using glue, glitter, pipe straws, and crayons. I also like how immediately after the animated show, they show real children making projects based upon the concepts of the preceding show. Hence the name, "Creative Galaxy".

Now, the only caveat would be that I've only seen 2 episodes; I hope the quality and content remain high.
A rare gem in a sea of children's shows!

My 5 year old loved this and wants more. He especially liked " when they created the library and used paint."
Please make more!

I didn't love it, but my daughter did. Like all shows designed for the toddler set, it was quite formulaic and deliberately predictable. However, my daughter, who is 4 and is usually beyond a lot of other shows targeted at toddlers really liked this and kept on watching it. She said it was because she like the pictures and seeing how they made the art. I think she also liked the little pink friend who made funny noises. Personally, I think they should give Arty a different space ship.

My 18 month old started watching this when she was 8-9 months old. She loves them! She loves to color and draw while watching them. They are very good in teaching children about art and all the different kinds of art there is out there. I also got really good fun project ideas for my kids to do from the little segments where they show real kids doing art. Really hope they get new ones out soon. Looking forward to them.

Having worked in the animation industry as a composer for 30 years, and more recently as a writer of children's programing, here’s my detailed critique .

THE SHOW’S LOOK

Wonderful coloring and color palate. This is not as easy as it looks. Especially in what they call FLASH 2D (2 1/2D–3D like shading). Though many reviewers complained about the look, I found it cute and very exceptible in the financial limitations they must have had. This is NOT a Dreamwork’s budget! It makes a difference.

THE CONCEPT

Having a show that deals with art, when there is a glut of STEM shows (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) is not only refreshing but, adds a needed balance in the marketplace of children’s programming and some RIGHT brained thinking!

INTERACTIVITY / A FALSE RELATIONSHIP WITH AN ON-SCREEN CHARACTER

It has been a concern from Dr. Dimitri Christakis at Washington University and Dr. Micheal Rich (CMCH - Center on Media and Child Health) where talking out the screen (the 4th wall) creates an unreal interaction and relationship with the onscreen characters and your kids at home. For example, Arty, “Will you help count the crayons with me”. Young at home viewer ”I can’t, I have to go potty first” Arty, ”Great! Let’s do it together”.

With scripting of this nature, there is nothing to block this type of exchange and resulting confusion. Though this is called interactive educational content – it is NOT. It’s not a two way communication scheme. Rather it’s entra-active (within one’s self, your child’s own perception of the communication). Questions to children from ANY show should NOT be directed for a response. Here’s an example of how it might be better employed.

As parents we love the emphasis on being creative. Craft ideas were a nice addition as well. Interaction with the audience is always a plus on children's programming. Our children - ages 10, 8, and 7 - liked it but didn't love it. Probably would be enjoyed more by younger children.

Absolutely loved the idea of this show and the message it teaches kids. Refreshing to see a show that focus' on the importance of art as a problem solving tool. Very cute and would hope to see more!

Really great concept, using art and animation. Really liked the fact how at the end of show detailed descriptions are made for the art project. Hope to see much more of this. Great job!
