I am a Jungle Jim’s Musical Adventure Blogger Ambassador. This post is part of a sponsored campaign. I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own.
I haven’t met a kid who doesn’t love music from very early on in their lives. When my kids are restless, I can usually calm them down with a music video or show that features music throughout each scene. So, when I turned on the Jungle Jim – A Musical Wildlife Adventure pilot episode (included with a paid Amazon Prime subscription) I wasn’t surprised they all stopped what they were doing and took a spot next to me on the couch. My preschooler was excited that the first part of Jungle Jim talked about camouflage – she had just learned about it in school! Jungle Jim finds a tiger, Stripes, in the wilderness who takes us on a journey with songs to learn about camouflage, how it works, and it’s purpose. Educational cartoons are the bees knees!
Three more mini episodes are featured in the pilot episode, which teaches viewers about monkeys, porcupines, and cheetahs. The music continues through the entire show and changes with each subject, keeping my kids engaged throughout the 15 minute preview episode. After it was over my kids asked to watch it one more time, and this time instead of sitting next to me they danced around, stopping intermittently to see what was going on in the show. The best part about Jungle Jim, aside from the catchy music, is the ability to view actual animals in their natural habitat. I’m excited to take them to the zoo in the spring so they can connect what they’ve learned from Jungle Jim to real life!
Jungle Jim was created by Steven Wagner. Every night before bed his children would want to read books about animals and talk about them. Steve woke up one morning with an idea for a musical animal show, and has since been developing the concept so that he can help kids everywhere satisfy their curiosity about animals. Steven’s brother Eric, who is a musician, wrote and produced all the music. Eric is also all the voices of the animal except Dash the Cheetah. Jungle Jim is voiced by Eric’s son.
