It Is Time to Use Your Imagination With Kazoops

This post is part of a sponsored campaign for Kazoops. I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own.


Andrew and I watched the first episode of the new Netflix show, Kazoops. It was adorable. The show is for children ages 3-6. It is bright and colorful and there are some cute songs, which did not get stuck in my head, so that is great. I’ve watched so many kids shows in the past 10 years that I am grateful to ones that have solid songs that you can enjoy, but not find yourself absentmindedly singing. The show follows the adventures of six-year old Monty and his best friend, Jimmy Jones, the family pet pig. Monty has a mom, dad, grandmother and older sister also in his family. Monty uses his vivid imagination to challenge preconceptions about life such as “you have to wear matching socks” or “all games need rules” and, in doing so, demonstrates the value of critical thinking and creative play.

Creative is an excellent way to describe the show. From the episode I saw it was a nice show with some creative animation. There are moments in the show when Monty closes his eyes and tells his pig, Jimmy Jones, “just imagine”. It is then that the animation changes from a 3D sort of animation to a more 2D animation. Those moments the animation has a real paper feel to it. It is quite beautiful. You just know that Monty is in his creative zone during those moments of imagination. Monty is a kid who is so full of life and curiosity. He’s looking for ways to accomplish things, but in his own unique way. The problem solving is also more subtle than other kids shows, it does not hit you over the head with the message. Kids pick up on the message without hearing it over and over.

#HeroesEatMMs with Captain America’s Deconstructed S.H.I.E.L.D. M&M’s Cookie Ice Cream Sandwiches

In the past few weeks I’ve been to visit my local Walmart three times for this #CollectiveBias shop. I was there the first time to scout out the things I would need to create a fun Superheroes recipe with M&M’S® because #HeroesEatMMs. I was also there to check out what Captain America: The Winter Soldier items I could find including the DVD. This shop has been compensated by Collective Bias, Inc. and its advertiser. All opinions are mine alone.

Heroes Eat M&Ms with Captain America the Winter Soldier - #HeroesEatMMs #CBias #CollectiveBias #Shop

Like I said, my first trip was primarily a scouting mission. The second time I went back to buy everything I needed for my special recipe which I am calling Captain America’s Deconstructed S.H.I.E.L.D. M&M’s Cookies Ice Cream Sandwiches. The third time was over this past weekend to check out an in store event for Walmart’s Super Hero September. That event was in the Bakery section where the kids received some fun Marvel Super Heroes cupcakes and coloring pages. There were also some Super Hero Mashers and samples of party items for Marvel Super Heroes themed parties. Continue reading #HeroesEatMMs with Captain America’s Deconstructed S.H.I.E.L.D.
