'Pinkalicious & Peterrific: Pinkamagine It!'
(DVD / G / 2018 / PBS Kids)
Overview: If there's one thing Pinkalicious loves most, it's the color pink! When Pinkalicious wakes up to discover her whole body has suddenly turned pink, she soon learns that it is possible to have too much of a good thing.
DVD Verdict: For those not in the know, 'Pinkalicious & Peterrific' is an American half-hour children's television program based on the Pinkalicious books by Victoria Kann and Elizabeth Kann.
The program premiered on PBS Kids on February 19, 2018 and the animated series is designed to encourage preschool-age children to explore the arts and develop their creativity.
The show's story follows Pinkalicious and her brother Peter as they imagine how the world looks through her artful eye. Each episode will include two 11 minute stories and live action. Indeed, WGBH is working with Sixteen South to produce 38 episodes in 2018.
Ok, so, let's get this straight from the start - for all the people I've encountered complaining about the pink laden throughout the show, come on now ... the title of the show should have clued you into what to expect!
Sure it can be a bit much, especially if young boys are watching, but at least you know full well that the girls in your family will love it, trust me.
That said, Peter also likes the color pink which is important in showing that colors are just colors and there’s no need to bring gender into it.
Due to 'Pinkalicious & Peterrific: Pinkamagine It!', my young daughter knows all of her letters, numbers (up to 10), many animals and shapes and plenty of other things far ahead of schedule. Equally important, she knows how to share and use problem solving skills.
Plus there are five (5) more Pinkatastic adventures - Pinkalicious and her brother Peter build a fairy house to attract the springtime fairies, invent their very own robot named Robotta, and lots more! This is a Widescreen Presentation (1.78:1) enhanced for 16x9 TVs.
