Annedroids from Amazon Studios ~ Entertainment for Kids
Recently we got the opportunity to check out a new series from Amazon Studios for kids. Let me preface this post by saying if you have kids ages 4-12, head on over to Amazon right now to check out the first episode of Annedroids for FREE.
Annedroids is Amazon Studios’ third original kids series, is aimed at children ages 4-7 and will debut on July 25th on Prime Instant Video.
Annedroids is a science based-action adventure series that follows eleven-old genius and kid-scientist Anne, who has invented and built her own amazing androids, and her friends and kid assistants Nick and Shania. Together the kid trio make amazing scientific discoveries while undertaking the biggest experiment of all: growing up.
Created by Emmy-nominated JJ Johnson (Dino Dan) and Sinking Ship Entertainment, and aimed at children aged four through seven, Annedroids is a live-action adventure series following a young female genius, her human friends, android assistants and the amazing scientific discoveries they make while undertaking the biggest experiment of them all: growing up. The talent behind the characters includes Addison Holley (Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood)as ”Anne,” Adrianna Di Liello (Stage Fright)as her friend “Shania” and Jadiel Dowlin plays “Nick.”.
What I really liked about Annedroids and indeed all of Amazon’s children’s programs is that they are designed to develop creative thinking in children. Each and every episode has been tested to ensure they achieve this goal. I completely appreciate that Amazon’s goal is to inspire lifelong learners and provide children with the skills that will help them find personal and professional satisfaction in their future. This makes me feel confident when I let my children watch their programming.
In fact, earlier this summer, Amazon Studios released two additional children’s series: a stop-motion animated series encouraging creative scientific discovery called Tumble Leaf and an interactive art adventure for preschoolers called Creative Galaxy.
What really shocked me after watching the series is how much my entire family liked it. Ok there were a few things I thought could have been done better. Namely the video game that the two boys were playing. But that is just being picky on an otherwise fairly engaging show. Even my husband wanted to see what happened.
