“Stinky & Dirty” Animated Series Promotes Problem Solving and Recycling

This post is presented by KidzVuz.

Amazon and I are best friends.

I have been a prime member for as long as I can remember and honestly it is one of the BEST investments I have ever made, having the access to quick deliveries or common and not so common items, to the unlimited photo storage to the REALLY awesome television content on Amazon Video for both kids and adults.

Stinky & Dirty

Stinky & Dirty Show on Amazon Video

When I was introduced to the children’s series Stinky and Dirty, I knew that it would be a winner in my household for a few reasons:

  • The Name: I mean Stinky and Dirty? This can be an accurate description of my boys on most days
  • The Premise: Stinky is a garbage truck and Dirty is a Backhoe loader, this is right up the alley of my 4 year old as he is currently OBSESSED with garbage trucks and anything construction related. The kid gets crazy excited when we see a construction project in progress and he has asked to personally give the recycling to the sanitation workers every Thursday.
  • It’s good TV: I’ve talked about how awesome the children’s programming is on Amazon, Stinky & Dirty did not disappoint

In The Stinky & Dirty Show, whether it’s rescuing their pal Mighty the tugboat, or moving a giant boulder blocking the highway in their town of Go City, Stinky and Dirty are a dynamic duo of resourcefulness who learn when things don’t go as expected, asking “what if” can lead to success. They don’t always do things the way you’d expect—like reusing trash as makeshift tools and materials—and for them, hilariously failing turns out to be one of the most fun paths to success.

Getting Creative

In addition to the trucks and fun, I love that the Stinky & Dirty show implores our children to think outside of the box. It is an important skill to hone as they are going to need these skills in school and in general. Stinky & Dirty throw out many different solutions, and no matter how ridiculous the suggestion, they try it–sometimes it works and sometimes not so much. Either way they are open to listening to each other until they find an appropriate solution to the issue.

Recycling is key!

Stinky & Dirty is all about recycling old items and making special use for them! Here are some of the examples of all the awesome things they do:

  • They created a motorcycle ramp out of an old door
  • They created an extension for a water pump using broken barrels to make mud
  • They made a trailer to tow a rock away out of an old rusty boat
  • They use an old tarp to create a sail that can catch wind to move them when they run out of gas

I don't have Amazon Prime anymore. But absolutely I'll have to check it out somehow so I can find something for the baby boy to watch. Having a kid is a great excuse to watching some kid programming! I forgot how good kiddie shows can be.
