4 Stars Out Of 5
Educational whilst funny!
October 5, 2013
Created and narrated by VeggieTales creator Phil Vischer.
Uses funny Muppet like characters to help explain the bible to kids.
Having viewed only volume 3. of the series they discussed the Pentateuch, the rules of Leviticus, Numbers and Deuteronomy.
Recommended by Max Lucado.
Some of the characters may not be to everybody's liking (mine included) but seem harmless enough including a pirate, a cowboy, a scientist two explorers, a priest, black preacher,an elderly sunday school teacher and Buck Denver -a journalist.
It explored the reason why some people today don't believe the Bible which I found to be very good
Some of the songs are sung by two oddly Amish looking young guys but my son found them to be quite comical and educational.
"Holy Mackerel" was used as a joke which I wouldn't want my son repeating but I was happy to explain to him that WE (in our family) don't say say that and he was seemingly happy with that.
Some of it went over my almost 6-year-old's head but he loved it all the same and thought the characters were funny and it has expanded his vocabulary.
All in all the bits I didn't like about it, (including a reference to a magical robot in the special features) were outweighed by the good stuff provided I provide disclaimers to my child about such things.
