Do you remember how fun it was to play outside as kid? You know… Before iPads, cell phones, screens and more screens? Back then the only handheld device we had was etch a sketch! (remember that?)
My family and I were invited to Lincoln Center to celebrate the new children’s series Tumble Leaf. Since it was on a Sunday and I am determined to give my kids the best summer ever, I didn’t hesitate to say yes!
What is Tumble Leaf?
A vibrant blue fox, whimsical friends, exhilarating adventures and discovery await all those who explore the stop-motion world of Tumble Leaf. Amazon’s first original kids series is available today, exclusively on Amazon Prime Instant Video at no additional cost for Prime members. Created for preschool-aged children, each episode of Tumble Leaf follows Fig, a delightfully curious blue fox, and his best friend Stick, a quirky caterpillar, as they embark on a fun and nature-filled adventure, learning science through their natural play.
Prime members have unlimited streaming access to the first six episodes of Tumble Leaf, at no additional cost to their membership.
We were able to hear from the creators of the Tumble Leaf series on the basic principles behind the program. Their passion for outdoor play was so obvious in their words. Tumble Leaf was created to encourage the kids to turn off the TV and head outside, use their imagination and just have fun.
We got to preview four episodes and both kids loved it. The 2 year old giggled loudly at every turn and the 5yo spoke back to the screen and had a lot of laughs too!
When we were done we had a bit of an after party with a full spread of food including mini bagels, chopped fruit, quinoa, potato salad, grilled cheese sandwiches and more. Both kids ate, so did hubby but I wasn’t super hungry so I had some fruit and lemonade.
There was also a ton of photo opportunities one with the main start Fig and another photo booth that created this hysterical gif! (They are looking at us for cues the entire time lol)
We got a Amazon Fire TV for attending, plus since we were in front of the beautiful Lincoln Center we took some pictures, with me actually in them!
