Editorial Reviews

Jakers! is a celebration of the joys good friendship can bring while the excitement of adventure and imagination inspires kids to learn from their own experiences. Through Jakers! children learn about life lessons and each episode conveys a moral that kids learn through daily experiences. Each episode of Jakers! is set in two distinct places and times: 1950’s Ireland and the present day.

I am so excited to see that "Jakers! The Adventures of Piggley Winks" is available on DVD. It is the only series that I allow my 16 month old watch and he loves it. Each episode begins with Grandpa Winks telling his grandchildren a story of growing up with his friends in Ireland and then the episode shows Grandpa's adventures as a youngster, "Piggley Winks". Each story has a lesson and the series shows the importance of family and friends. Also, you know it's got to be good if Mel Brooks is involved (he supplies the voice of Wiley the sheep).

I am so glad that Jakers has come to DVD. I actually miss watching this during the day because of work. I can honestly and proudly say that I have been known to watch this program on PBS even when my children aren't around because I enjoy it and the sheep crack me up every episode! This is definitely a movie adults won't mind watching with their children. Sunday movie night just got a boost!

I was so happy to see that some episodes of Jakers has been released to dvd. We used to watch it with our daughter on the local pbs station in nyc but then we moved from the area and found that our new city's local pbs station didn't show it. This is actually the one kid's show that both my husband and I don't mind watching with our daughter. Jakers follows the adventures of Piggly Winks and his pals while growing up in Ireland. They get into plenty of mischief but there is always a lesson to be learned and the values of families and friendship are strongly reinforced. Whether you're already aquainted with Jakers or are new to it, this is a great dvd.

I don't understand why but my daughter just loves it. We own all the 5 DVDs so far on the market and almost every book also.

At very beginning, I bought a ready-to-read book (level-1) of this serious accidentally: "Piggly makes the pie", which episode is including in the DVD. Although she was just several months over one years old and hardly could understand most of words ( we talked to her in Chinese most of the time ), it soon became her favorite book. The book is very good. It has little picture icons to help the little kids in reading, e.g.: apple, window , goat, etc. all shown by both words and pictures in the line. So, I thought it would be more helpful to get the DVD. After all, she just loves the whole serious.

PBS also has a "Jakers" stories website for little kids. There are 4 stories, reading by grandpa "Piggley". Now it has been our bed-time stories club every night. If you like, you can go and try it first.

Now we read the book, watch the DVDs and go the PBS.com to meet our grandpa Piggley every day!

Piggley movies share great values with children while still being entertaining. I love the Irish accents and my daughter tries to imitate them.

Bought this as another addition to my sons collection and found that both he and I love to watch Piggley and his friends together. I would recommend this series to anyone who asks.
