Tumble Leaf : A Creative & Exciting New Kids Series From Amazon Studios #sponsored #MC

I participated in an Influencer Activation on behalf of Mom Central Consulting for Amazon Studios. I received a product sample to facilitate my review and promotional item to thank me for participating.

I remember the first time I discovered Amazon many years ago and, since then, it has grown into something more than I could have ever imagine. As an Amazon Prime member, my husband and I watch Prime Instant Videos often. A few months ago, Amazon Studios invited members to check out some of their newest show ideas and watch the pilot episodes. Not only that, but we could vote on our favorites and, based on the feedback received, they would choose which shows to continue producing. My favorite show was The After and I cannot wait to see where they take the plot of the movie from the original pilot. They have a huge variety of movies and shows on their current slate, both for adults and children, and have an open door not only for creators, but for members who also have ideas. Obviously, this is working to their advantage because everyone can be a part of the creative process and even the pilots I watched were amazing, unique and thought-provoking.
During the month of May, we were given the opportunity to check out a new release by Amazon Studios named Tumble Leaf, which is the first original kids series released by Amazon. Released on May 23rd, this pre-school geared animated series was immediately noticed by my youngest son, Liam (4), who could not wait to check it out, so we watched together, along with big brother, Josiah, who is 6.

The boys were captivated by the bright and vivid colors of nature captured through the animation, which immediately transported us to the beautiful stop-motion world of Tumble Leaf. Each new episodes follows a day in the life of Fig, a curious little fox who lives in a wrecked ship by the sea with his best caterpillar friend, Stick! In each episode, Fig and Stick journey on a new adventure and explore the world around them.

My two boys can really relate to Fig and Stick as friends and have learned from watching their friendship. In addition, the show encourages little ones to be creative, to explore their environment and to be themselves. I love the message behind Tumble Leaf and have been impressed not only with the quality of the episodes, but that it holds the interest of two very active boys who will only sit still if something is worth their time. Plus, each episode is broken up into two 11-minute stories, so this is especially great for little ones who can't sit still for long shows and/or movies. Liam laughs out loud while watching and, as an animal lover, he gets a kick out of all the animal characters on the show.

The Tumble Leaf episodes are educational, teaching children about friendship, exploration, nature and much more, which I sadly cannot say for many animated kid-oriented shows these days. This makes mama very happy and I can let them watch without feeling the need to monitor. I've never been disappointed by any of the shows we've seen from Amazon Studios so far and Tumble Leaf was no different. I highly recommend this series for young children and think they will love it as much as my boys. Liam has already watched several episodes and is asking for more! Thankfully, Amazon released a Tumble Leaf app with 6 fun games inspired by the show! The app is free and we downloaded it the other day. So far it has been a hit and you can't beat free, so give it a try.
