Having four children I’ve
often been subjected to watched many, many different children’s TV programmes. Some I’ve loved and others I’ve loathed. Now the children are getting a little older I’m enjoying more of what they’re interested in. When I was asked to review the new DC Super Hero Girls from Warner Brothers, I thought it sounded great and was looking forward to sharing it with my children (being a bit of a geek I love all things super hero!).
I sat down with R to watch and we were both impressed; it’s not just for girls either, E enjoyed watching it too. It’s an action packed adventure featuring a group of super heroes discovering their powers and making friends. There are tons of great characters and we all had our favourites, the children were excited to see some faces that they already knew. R’s favourite is Katana, she funky, fashionable and great with a sword.
There is also a great website the children can visit. You can download free printable activities, there are quizzes to find out what super hero you are like and what your powers are. There are fun games your children can play, like Flight School where you can become your favourite character and learn to fly. And R’s personal favourite, there’s a store where you can find the doll of your favourite character, add it to your wishlist and let friends and family know which one you’d like.
R also noticed that there is an App for both Android and Apple, with mini-games, photo filters and a costume design class, so she is keen to try that out too.
It’s definitely a YouTube channel we’ll be subscribing to, so we can watch whenever we want to and keep up to date with all the new episodes.
