PBS Kids Peg + Cat: Out of this World DVD Review


COSMIC CAPERS AWAIT IN THE NEW PEG + CAT DVD
“OUT OF THIS WORLD”

Available on DVD from PBS Distribution

PBS KIDS Series PEG + CAT Helps Kids Build Math and Problem-Solving Skills

The run time of the new DVD “OUT OF THIS WORLD” is approximately 60 minutes.
The stories featured on the DVD include:

“The Doohickey Problem”
When their space ship is smashed, Peg and Cat must reassemble its variously shaped parts, and retrieve 16 stolen doohickeys.

“The Long Line Problem”
While waiting in a long line, Peg and Cat try to help Richard realize his dream of being first in line for the first time.

“Richard the Third”
At Richard’s family’s highly competitive annual picnic, Peg and Cat try to help Richard achieve his dream of not coming in third in every single event.

“The T-Ball Problem”
Peg’s t-ball team, the Mighty Nine, have no chance against a team of alien all-stars – unless Peg can use the aliens’ t-ball cards to predict where they’ll hit.

Each PEG + CAT adventure features a story in which Peg and Cat encounter an unexpected challenge that requires them to use math and problem-solving skills. While it teaches specific math lessons, the series also emphasizes resilience and perseverance.

When the nominations for the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards were announced, PET + CAT was nominated for five awards, including: “Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Animated Program,” “Outstanding Writing in a Preschool Animated Program,” “Outstanding Directing in an Animated Program,” “Outstanding Music Direction and Composition,” and “Outstanding Original Song” for “Fairy Tale Wedding.” PEG + CAT won for “Outstanding Writing in a Preschool Animated Program” and “Outstanding Music Direction and Composition.”    

PEG + CAT was created by Jennifer Oxley (“Little Bill,” “The Wonder Pets!”) and Billy Aronson (“Rent,” “Postcards from Buster”) and is a production of The Fred Rogers Company. PEG + CAT, which made its broadcast debut in October 2013, airs daily on PBS KIDS (check local listings).

PEG + CAT is funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the U.S. Department of Education through the Ready To Learn Initiative, a program that supports the development of innovative educational television and digital media targeted at preschool and early elementary schoolchildren and their families.

My Review:
My kids love the new Peg + Cat: Out of this World DVD! My kids just recently discovered Peg + Cat shows on PBS KIDS and have been watching them non stop. Peg + Cat: Out of this World helps kids build math and problem-solving skills which is something I can really appreciate as a homeschooling mom. I can't tell you how many times I've been trying to teach my kids something and they will say "oh like on Peg+Cat". Shows like Peg+Cat are extremely helpful for kids as they teach them valuable skills without them even knowing. I'm surprised at how much my kids actually retain from shows like Peg+Cat but I'm extremely thankful for them as they make my life as a homeschooling mom of 4 much easier. Peg + Cat: Out of this World DVD is filled with new adventures that are sure to entertain kids as well as educate them!

You can order Peg + Cat: Out of this World DVD at Shop PBS, Amazon and other retailers.
