Thanks to our friends at Saban Brands for sending us some Julius Jr goodies so we could have some pre-holiday fun!
We’ve been catching episodes of Julius Jr nearly everyday after school. It’s hard to say who the biggest fan is in our house, but everyone loves the adventurous monkey and his friends! Even better is that season 2 of Julius Jr. every Saturday at 1 p.m.!
We’ve also been enjoying some NEW books! Both the Hall of Doors (a super awesome board book with flaps) and Howdy Doodle Doo (a step 1 reader) have been huge hits! We’ve read them countless times and they’re really great for my beginning readers. It helps of course, that we’re such big Julius fans. We read along with our Julius Jr plushies! Though I confess, my husband wants to know where is Shaka Bah Yeti is! Maybe Santa has an idea?
Julius Jr. books can be purchased at Barnes & Noble and on Amazon. Cuddly Julius Jr., Sheree and Clancy plush toys from our friends at Fisher-Price! These fun friends can be purchased at a Toys “R” Us near you or online.
Julius Jr. has launched its first full interactive 3D app based on the series, with fun activities designed for preschoolers to play on tablets and mobile devices. Kids can now join Julius Jr. and his friends in a variety of easy-to-play games on the go! The app is now available on the App Store ($2.99) for iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch. Edison ADORES the new app and dances to the music videos. It’s the coolest. Seriously.
The Julius Jr. has new features for both preschoolers and their parents to enjoy! A playful new kids section features fun games, crafts and activities, printables and music videos, as well as exclusive video clips from the show. The website will also include a dedicated parents section featuring healthy recipes, themed birthday ideas, and arts and crafts to do with their kids, along with curriculum-based “Inventing Time” activities from the Center for Childhood Creativity. The site is built for web, tablet and smart phone usage, so parents and their children can easily enjoy Julius Jr. and his pals together on the go!
