Available for Amazon Prime members the Amazon Original Series Wishenpoof
She has a vivid imagination, fairy wings, a talking teddy bear for a best friend and oh yes, secret magical powers that allow her to make wishes come true. Meet your preschooler’s new animated best friend, Bianca from the Amazon Original Series, Wishenpoof. (Wait, you still haven’t signed up for Amazon Prime? Keep reading to find out all the great perks of Amazon Prime!)
While Wishenpoof has all the ingredients of a preschooler’s dream, it also shares important messaging throughout the show reminding little ones that “magic” is not the answer to problems, Bianca learns that problem solving comes from within.
In one episode, Bianca is at school with her friends. When one little girl makes Bianca’s best friend Penelope feel bad by shooting down her imagination- “Violet is not saying nice things, She made Penelope feel bad”- Bianca’s first idea is to use magic to make the offending girl understand that the things she is saying are not nice. But Bob the Bear comes in with this reminder:
“With magic or without, when you see something that isn’t right, you can say something.”
Bianca takes Bob’s advice and “says something” to Violet:
“Violet, I need to say something to you. I need to say that you are making Penelope sad. And that’s not ok.”
The message is good one for preschoolers, this episode in particular reminded me of my niece who is extremely sensitive and deeply concerned with right vs. wrong. However, she’s more on the shy side, so “saying something” is not her first response to conflict. We are often telling her to “use her words” because we see her get so frustrated when she sees someone do something “wrong” like cut in line for the slide, for example.
Every episode also incorporates all the imaginative fun that a little girl with a dandelion magic wand should have the power to create: swimming as a mermaid one minute, riding on a baby unicorn over rainbows or queen of the jungle.
Random fun tidbit: Bianca’s father is voiced by Jason Priestley (yes, that Jason Priestly of Beverly Hills, 90210) and Priestley’s daughter Ava as Laurel (Awwww!)
