As a mom to a preschooler, we tend to watch shows I wouldn’t normally choose. But that’s okay, because it’s opened my eyes to shows I’ve actually like. We just discovered Nature Cat on PBS kids, and my four-year old son is hooked! Nature Cat is designed to encourage kids to explore and develop connections with the natural world, starting in their own backyard.Nature Cat is definitely my son's latest obsession! He absolutely loves it.
My son received these great “Nature Cat” plush toys in the mail and he adores them. All he wants now is Nature cat. He’s so glad to have found out that he and nature cat have something in common.... Adventures! Backyard adventures are my son's jam. He loves being outside and now he has some plush pals to join him.
Let me introduce you to my son's new pals:

NCircle Entertainment has several new fun releases this Spring. One of my very favorites is The Little Prince: The Planet of Bamalias. I received a copy to review, and I love it just as much as my nine-year old son does!
The universe is in danger. The evil Snake extinguishes the stars as he passes through the galaxy, causing chaos and plunging the planets into darkness. The Little Prince must leave his Asteroid home and beloved friend, Rose, in his quest to outsmart the Snake and save the universe from doom. Accompanied by his trusted companion, the Fox, the Little Prince travels from planet to planet, braving danger and discovering vast and enchanted worlds. Will the extraordinary gifts of the Little Prince bring each of the planets back to life? And will he ever find his way home?
On Planet Bamalias, the Little Prince will go through a terrible experience - he will lose his memory! He can't even remember why he is here! On top of that, Planet Bamalias is at the center of five other planets and they all depend on it for their survival. Fox is trying everything to help the Little Prince recover his lost memory. Fox tells him their story: why they are here, planet-hopping chasing the snake and how it all started. Slowly the Little Prince remembers... but will he remember in time to save the Bamalias constellation?
Enter to win! One winner will receive a copy of The Little Prince: The Planet of Bamalias to review. What a fun movie! I watched it with my son, Braxton and we were very entertained by all of the many adventures of The Little Prince.
