Earth Day Review and Giveaway-Wubbzy Goes Green DVD

I have another great Earth Day surprise for you!  Remember our little friend Wubbzy from the great Nick Jr. show Wow! Wow! Wubbzy?  Well, he's back in another great adventure just in time for Earth Day.  Wubbzy Goes Green teaches young fans the importance of being green whether it's learning to recycle or grow berries.  This DVD is a great way for kids to learn to pitch in and help make the Earth a better place, alongside their favorite Wuzzleburg friends.  Everyone in Wuzzleburg is getting involved in saving the planet.  In these earth-friendly episodes, Wubbzy, Widget, Walden, and Daizy must find a new place for the Wuzzle Bears to live, think up creative ways to reuse juice bottles, and learn to grow their own doodleberries.  Your pre-schooler will discover important lessons in ecology, harmony, and personal responsibility while enjoying plenty of singing and dancing.

Extra! Extra! Read all about it!  Young viewers and fans will give Wow! Wow! Wubbzy! a green thumbs-up when the cute and quirky bendy-tailed character from the hit Emmy Award®-winning Nick Jr.® preschool TV series goes from yellow to…green in Wubbzy Goes Green, an exciting, brand-new DVD featuring a bounty of adorable and Earth-friendly episodes!

To help celebrate the new release – and Mother Earth! – Anchor Bay has partnered with the Alliance for Community Trees (ACT).  For every Wubbzy Goes Green” DVD sold, Anchor Bay will donate $1 to ACT to help support the planting of trees in playgrounds and schoolyards across the country! The special tree-planting initiative “sprouts” on April 1 and continues through May 31, 2010.

And to further ”plant the seeds” of green-themed consciousness among the budding environmentalists in your family, following are some tips and cool “tree trivia” inspired by “Wubbzy Goes Green” and ACT:

v      Take along washable cups or travel mugs instead of disposables.
v      Turn off the faucet while brushing your teeth.
v      Volunteer with community organizations that plant trees like the Alliance for Community Trees!

Trees make for thriving children!

Did you know…

v      …asthma rates among 4- and 5-year-old children fell by 25% for every extra 343 trees per square kilometer?*
v      …students perform better in tests when surrounded by trees and grass?**
v      …neighborhoods with more trees experience less crime?**

More facts about trees!
Cleaner air: Trees help trap and remove tiny particles of soot and dust, which otherwise damage human lungs, and tree root networks filter contaminants in soils producing clean water.  Four million trees would save $20 million in annual air pollution cleanup!***
Energy saver: The cooling effects of trees can save millions of energy dollars!  Three to four shade trees located strategically around a house can cut summer cooling costs by 30-50%!***
Healthier children: Performing activities in green settings can reduce children’s Attention Deficit-Hyperactivity Disorder symptoms.**

My girls are in love with Wubbzy as it is but they absolutely loved this DVD.  Little one really doesn't know about saving the earth and recycling, but the oldest is really starting to learn and this DVD is great for teaching our kids the importance of growing things, recycling and reusing.  Wubbzy and his friends are lovable characters that really get the point across easily and respectfully.  I love the messages that it not only teaches my girls, but it also teaches me a lot of new things as well.  You will absolutely love watching this DVD with your kids over and over again as well as on Earth Day every year for many years to come.  
You can purchase this DVD at for $11.99 or find it in many retail stores.
