There is a show on Disney Junior (Playhouse Disney) that I absolutely love! Higglytown Heroes! Have you heard of the show? The characters are based off Matryoshka nesting dolls, you know the dolls that get smaller and smaller in size? The main characters are Eubie, Wayne, Twinkle, and Kip and they spend time exploring their city and meeting ‘Higglytown Heroes’, people who make a difference in their community.
What I love about it is that every episode highlights a town hero. You might ask, what is so special about that? But the heroes range from doctors/judges to the pizza delivery boy, even the playground monitor! It’s really special because it teaches children that everyone is important and needed to build a community. We all have worth.
The voice actors on the show are generally celebrities and even the theme song is written by They Might Be Giants! Each episode actually has two songs, the Dilemma song and the Hero song. This brings you into the ‘problem’ and when the hero is introduced who solves it. It’s just another way to show how things are interconnected, this way through music.
The interactive Higglytown Heroes on Disney Junior also has some really great things for kids!
Higglytown Heros airs every weekday afternoon at 1:00pm EST on Disney Junior.
I was not compensated for this promotion. It’s just a show I really enjoy watching with my children.
