Pinkalicious and Peterrific: Pinkamagine It DVD and Book Review
I have been compensated for this post in the form of a product. All opinions are mine and mine alone. This post is sponsored by PBS Distribution.
Pinkalicious and Peterrific, if you didn’t know, is a show about a wonderful, fun girl obsessed with the color pink and her younger equally fun brother, Peter. PBS Distribution has announced the release of a new DVD on May 5, 2018 called “Pinkalicious and Peterrific: Pinkamagine It” which also pairs well with the Pinkalicious book published by HarperCollins. I love the uniqueness, self-expression and boldness of Pinkalicious as well as the very real relationship she has with Peter. She stands for what she likes and always pulls Peter into her schemes and color fondness. Pinkalicious and Peter are so charming, they have sold tons of DVD’s, books and have even appeared as a musical in New York.
Pinkalicious is very eye catching, whether seen on TV or in a book. The first time we ever learned of her was at the library. My son picked up her book as it was just so Pink and he wanted to know what the deal was with this character. I like that there is a boy and girl character both my kids can relate to and that Peter is also captivated by the colors Pink because his sister is so obsessed with it. I loved that this book and DVD discussed moderation in a different manner, not by teaching moderation exactly but rather exaggerating what happens when one over indulges on anything. Reverse psychology in a way that children can understand. First with her pink cupcake obsession and also with mysterious dancing shoes that don’t stop and Robots that don’t quite work the way they imagined. Pinkalicious is as energetic, outspoken as real kids that children can’t help but find her funny while Peter brings a balance to her flashy persona.
Both my children enjoyed the DVD and book. I can’t say they loved one over the other because they laughed while enjoying both. I have read the book at least twice every day since they saw it came in the mail and have watched a different episode each day from the DVD. Whenever we read the book they sign the songs Pinkalicious sang on the DVD or they want to hold the book while watching the DVD. Both kids also loved the robot episode and were pretending they were robots for a bit and wanted me to play one too. It is fun to see them not only watch a DVD but engage in pretend play because of it. The DVD will bring you 60 minutes of laughter and the book so much more with it.
