The winner is comment #57: Marlena U.

Does your family watch WordWorld? If not, you should definitely check out this show. We had the opportunity to reveiw it before it’s very first airing and we’ve been big fans ever since. Even I love this show!

From the site: “Welcome to WordWorld, a colorful, word-rich place where a whacky troupe of WordFriends who are characters first and words second, go one comic adventures. Kids are actually challenged to “build a word” which creates a unique moment when letters in the correct order form a word that then morphs into the thing it is!”

What I liked best about this show is the way they teach word recognition. When the letters are put together and the word comes to life, the visualization helps to reinforce it. I think this is so important in the learning process.

We had the opportunity to review the WordWorld Sung as a Bug Word Magnet set. This cool two-sided magnetic playboard really had my girls entertained. It came with various 3D and flat magnets which the girls could stick on the board and make up their own stories. Once they were done, the playboard folds up for easy storage. What I really liked was how bright and colorful the pieces were. It made playing so much more inviting and fun!

You can find this and other WordWorld toys at your local Target store or go online at Target.com. And don’t forget to check out the WordWorld site to see when it’s airing in your area. Your kids will love it!
