Editorial Reviews

Includes three great PEEP DVDs -- Peep Finds, Peep Floats, and Peep's New Friends.

The animated series PEEP and the Big Wide World, narrated by award-winning actress Joan Cusack, gives wings to the innovative idea of teaching science to preschoolers. Wry and distinctive visual humor, charming plotlines, and lovable characters combine with a comprehensive science program to attract and engage young kids.

Some television shows just sit there. Others are worth their weight in gold. As a mom who is pretty picky, I have to say that I really like this show.

As the other reviewers have noted, this series has cute characters and is done very professionally. However, what really stands out is it's ability to teach children reasoning skills. Every episode has a problem and Peep, Duck (my personal favorite), Chirp and company demonstrate the various ways that one can look at the problem; and how one might approach the problem to solve it.

Failure? That just means you need to go back to the drawing board and try again.

FOUR Stars. Provides teaching moments that most other shows don't. Sit and watch the show with your child and then see how many times during the week you can apply the approaches learned. You'll be pleasantly surprised.

5.0 out of 5 stars A must have for kids! September 27, 2005
This is a delightful program - entertaining and educational without feeling it is. The 3 main characters are a hoot - my husband will actually go out of his way to watch this one (the same guy who runs from Blues clues and all the others!). Kids learn a little science in each episode, as do the birds in the show, so your kids are learning along with them. Tons of fun - my 18 month old adores these as does my 6 year old!

5.0 out of 5 stars great product February 11, 2007
Verified Purchase
You will not be disappointed with purchasing this DVD series. I recommend getting the set over buying them individually because then you will be like I was with the BabyEinstein DVDs, and bought one by one---and in the end, I paid far too much for them individually. When I saw Amazon sold this as a set, I ordered it immediately. We have it on tv in Canada on one of our cable channels, but I wanted to own the DVDs as a keepsake collection. They are THAT good---believe me. There are few things out there that are excellent quality as far as DVDs. I have invested in so many different DVDs. I have been disappointed with many of them, but of the ones I am impressed most with is: Cedarmont Kids, Peep, and Little Einsteins for toddlers and preschoolers. Brainy Baby and similar DVDs just didn't spark that much for me to mention them as the best DVDs.

5.0 out of 5 stars The BEST DVD for your kids! July 21, 2005
If you don't know Peep from Discovery Kids/TLC, you and your kids are missing some really entertaining and educational TV. Each episode conveys some sort of "science" lesson (i.e. how water flows, measuring half-way between two objects). Joan Cusack is the perfect narrator -- and the antics and personalities of the three main characters (Peep, Chirp and Quack) make even my husband and me laugh outrageously! Buy this DVD set and make your kid's TV watching time more valuable!

5.0 out of 5 stars Parental Sanity Saver May 4, 2007
Verified Purchase
With our first child, my wife and I learned that the most important thing in music or movie purchases for a toddler is that it be Not Annoying. Because the child will watch it over and over and over and over and over and over again, and so will YOU. After several thousand viewings of Curious George (Mildly Annoying) and one single viewing of Blues Clues (Positively Horrifying), we stumbled on this gem (we don't have cable - it was a Netflix gamble, like Blue's Clues). Robert watches it endlessly, and we actually enjoy watching it (!). Some of the movie lines have become catch phrases in the house (e.g., "I'm a very big, large, giant duck" said in a hoarse voice has replaced "I'm tired"). It's that, well, catchy. One of the interesting things about it, which Robert really enjoys, is the sequence at the end of each cartoon where real children "experiment" with something related to the cartoon. It's pretty amusing for us, too, and probably a preview of what's to come (these kids seem to be about 4-7 years old; Robert isn't yet 2). And special kudos to the kid with the awesome Boston accent that "watches the dwogs bahk while counting the stahs". Reminds me of when I was a kid and we all talked that way. If you're the parent of a toddler, YOU WANT THIS (and its companion set of 3 DVDs under another title). It's that or The Endless Torture of Blue's Clues. PEEP RULES!

5.0 out of 5 stars PEEP is FANTASTIC !!! January 2, 2006
My girlfriend and I LOVE PEEP! There are a lot of great and funny jokes for adults that kids just wouldn't get. BUT- it's even better for kids!!! This is probably my favorite kids show ever. If you haven't watched it yet- TUNE IN!!! Music by Taj Mahal... Narration by Joan Cusak.... Peep and Quack are just ADORABLE! (so is Chirp!)

4.0 out of 5 stars Peep DVD December 31, 2007
This is another good set of DVD's for toddlers and preschool age kids, according to my grandkids. They can't go a day without watching Peep and dancing to the music on the DVD.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great program for kids February 13, 2007
Both my 7 and 4 year old love this show on TLC. I purchased these DVDs for my daughter. This is like preschool science for kids. The music and format are good. They don't even realize they are learning. I even enjoy it myself.

It's intelligent and cute and the characters are fun, especially Quack. My kid has outgrown Peep but I still buy the c.d.'s as gifts for others.

As the daddy of 3 and 5-year-olds, I can safely say this is my favorite kids' show. The lessons are there, but the kids don't really notice that they're learning about real life. Read more
