Our New Favorite Program: Amazon Studio's Tumble Leaf

Disclosure: 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.

Amazon just keeps surprising me! I've shared my obsession with shopping on the site as well as how we are cable free - instead we favor viewing shows on Amazon Prime via our Roku.

Now Amazon's introduced Amazon Studios, a collection of original programming created and curated by users - it really is an amazing community! Users are able to provide and receive feedback on their projects turning creation into a collaborative process. One of these programs, Tumble Leaf, launched May 23, is Amazon Studios' first-ever kids program debuting on Prime Instant Video. 

Our family is already connected to Amazon Prime and it was super simple to just add Tumble Leaf to our favorites. Nia even knows how to navigate to it with the easy remote, and she's already in love with Tumble Leaf! She giggles so hard when she watches the show and even talks about it randomly when we're together.

Each episode of Tumble Leaf follows a day in the life of “Fig the fox” who lives in a wrecked schooner ship by the sea and his best friend “Stick,” a caterpillar who lives in a tiny basket strapped to Fig’s forearm, as they discover adventure, friendship and love around every bend. As a parent, I appreciate how Tumble Leaf inspires curiosity and exploration - see how in this sneak peek:

Isn't Tumble Leaf adorable? I also like how it's commercial-free, another reason why we really like our Amazon Prime account. We're not big TV watchers, but I feel confident when Nia watches a program like Tumble Leaf. Like all of Amazon’s children’s programs, it's designed to develop creative thinking in children and has been tested to ensure they achieve this goal. Amazon’s goal is to inspire lifelong learners and provide children with the skills that will help them find personal and professional satisfaction in their future. 

If your little one ends up falling in love with Tumble Leaf like my daughter, be sure to get the free Android app featuring six games inspired by objects and activities from the show. You can download it here
