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!

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.

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.

This is a great Amazon pilot. The plot follows an alien and its assistant as they try to make a library's walls colorful, so that people will be more persuaded to go there. The show's strongest strength is its educational quality. Not only do the two aforementioned main characters interactively introduce the viewer to pointillism, but the show also includes a short segment of real-life kids making their own works of art, further persuading kids to be artistic. The concept of a creative "galaxy" was also pretty cool, and provided cool scenery, which could possibly make it more entertaining for kids.

However, one thing about this Amazon pilot is that it seems to be strongly influenced by "Little Einsteins" -- nearly too influenced for a kids' channel to order a season. But maybe the former could be viewed as visually artistic, while the latter (which I've seen before) is more about music. That difference may be strong enough to keep it as a potential option for a kids' channel. Another thing is that the show could have been a little more explanatory in the interactive parts: for example, when the alien says the word "pointillism," it seems logical to either spell the word out, or have it in big letters showing on the bottom half of the screen.

Overall, despite a resemblance to "Little Einsteins," it has a great concept with great role models.

I have two boys (ages 3 and 4). They absolutely love this show! It holds their attention and they are learning so much about art, colors, and being creative!

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

I'm a stay at home mom to an almost 4 year old boy. I try to give lots of free play through out the day but also try to plan a craft, etc. My son has literally had zero interest in any thing "artsy" up until this point. We've tried coloring, painting, glueing, everything and it always ends up being about completion and not the process. He will scribble quickly or throw some paint on a paper and move on. It's never been a "big deal" because I knew he wasn't ready or it wasn't his thing.

When I discovered this show I knew immediately that this would be very encouraging for him artistically. We watched it once and he immediately said "I need googly eyes, cotton balls and glue"! The rest is history! I try let him watch this in the mornings while I make breakfast and it seems like the rest of the day his imagination has doubled and he's inspired of every aspect of his play. HE leads arts and craft time and it turns into a freestyle playtime. I would recommend this show 1,000 times over because, as another reviewer said, it isn't just filler, it is very inspirational for little artistic minds.

If you are looking for more shows that inspire and encourage imagination I would also recommend Tumbleleaf, which has got us interested in the every day science of indoor and outdoor play.

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 three yr old enjoyed it. She didn't get overly excited but like the idea of art in the show. She needed more involvement in solving the problem. The songs were awful though. It would cause me to encourage her to watch something else. Songs go a long way and these would grate my nerves.
