Fox Home Entertainment has just released this children’s series on DVD. While I seldom look forward to viewing stop-motion animated projects aimed at very little ones, it helped that I was watching it with my 6-year-old nephew. Young David was instructed to help Uncle Phil review the multi-11-minute-episode project. He understands what I do for a living and took the challenge seriously. Discriminating or not, the outcome was positive. He enjoyed it and discussed the different characters. Even David’s little sister, two-year-old Megan, would occasionally stand in front of the TV directly in front of the TV and take in the visual appeal.
With positive and inspirational messages aimed at encouraging kids to use their imaginations. Each episode features little robots, friends who work together to achieve a goal. Creative and lively, Little Robots: Reach For the Sky gets a thumbs-up from 6-year-old David. It probably wouldn’t be Uncle Phil’s choice to bring along to a deserted island, but it was fun watching something with my nephew that was both nurturing and entertaining.
