Editorial Reviews

The Christmas Star: It's the night before Christmas and FROG needs a star to hang on his Christmas tree. DUCK thinks this will be the perfect present for FROG, and tries to lasso one out of the sky for him. Try as he might, DUCK is unable to catch a star fro FROG, and cries himself to sleep. But while he sleeps, someone leaves him a wonderful present: the letters S-T-A-R...
A Christmas Present for DOG: It's Christmas morning, and all the WordFriends are excited by the presents Santa has brought for them! PIG has a sled, BEAR has a doll, and ant has a cookie. But not all the letters for DOG's present came down his chimney. All he has is a B-A-L. BEAR gets filled with the Christmas spirit and makes a sacrifice to ensure DOG's Christmas will be merry!

5.0 out of 5 stars WordWorld A+ in my book! November 29, 2009
Format:DVD
WordWorld is one of my son's favorite shows. As soon as the theme song comes on he comes running to the tv or stops what he is doing. I love it too because it is a PBS Kids cartoon and it teaches letters, amongst other things! If you have never seen WordWorld before, it is a show where are the characters and most of the scenery is made up of the letters that spell them. It is adorable and bright and has very catchy music too!

Since Christmas is going to be here in less than a month we have started watching Christmas movies to get into the spirit. Well since Aidan loves Word World, we of course have to watch Happy Holidays WordFriends! It is a new Christmas DVD featuring all the WordWorld characters and features 2 episodes. Aidan was so excited as soon as he saw the box and even more excited when the show started. The two episodes are The Christmas Star and A Christmas Present for DOG. The first episode takes place the night before Christmas and features FROG and DUCK trying to get a star for FROG's tree through teamwork. The second episode takes place Christmas morning and all of the Wordfriends are excited because Santa brought them all presents, except DOG whose present didn't make it all down the chimney. This episode shows sacrifice and friendship.

Overall, we of course love this DVD and will be watching it probably year round! I just love the themes in the episodes and would rather Aidan watch Word World than some other cartoon that doesn't teach anything. I haven't seen this episode yet on PBS and I am not sure if they will be airing it or not, but for $6.99 at Amazon, it is worth it I think!

I received this DVD to review it, but it has not been edited and is 100% my opinion.

2.0 out of 5 stars 30 min for $7?! November 16, 2010
By hlg
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
My son loves Word World, so i got this DVD for him. However, the 'playing time' info on the product description misled me to think there was actually 60 min of episode on the DVD. Not so - it is 30 min. The other 30 min are commercials. Not worth $7 - sorry. Big rip off. Now i know not to purchase any more of these 2-episode sets.

5.0 out of 5 stars Kids love it! February 15, 2010
By S. Asay
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I love this series! Even as I write this review, my 3 year old is jumping up and down because he sees the "word word" dvd picture on this page. He should actually be the one writing this review, perhaps. Anyway, you won't regret this purchase!

And as a side note- if you're shopping for Word World DVDs, this and the other themed DVDs don't give you as many episodes for the money, but it is fun to have a themed video to play on the holiday itself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Short but fun for WordWorld fans January 4, 2011
By WA Mama
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is a shorter dvd, but that is why it was cheaper and I liked having holiday themed episodes to help my 2 year old WordWorld fan get into the spirit of the Christmas season.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Christmas theme February 1, 2010
By Rhonda
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Bought this for my two year old. Both stories have great themes of friendship and sharing that I hope will be internalized over time. The stories illustrate what good friends do for one another. I also used the CD to introduce Christmas concepts such as the Christmas tree and writing letters to Santa. Very happy with this purchase as I have been with all the other Word World CD's in our collection.

Our son loves Word World, our local PBS took it off the air a couple months ago, so not happy about that! We have been purchasing all of them through Amazon and so glad we are able to find them, Thanks Amazon!
