The Booples are bird-like animated creatures that learn about the Bible.  Each Booples! DVD contains three or four 5-minute segments, each featuring a lesson about behavior or a re-telling of a Bible story followed by a song using a scripture passage for lyrics.  The “music videos” of the songs are also listed separately on the DVD root menu and can be watched apart from the stories.  One segment is entitled “Love One Another” and features a lesson about demonstrating Christian character by showing love for friends, family, and neighbors.

 

Booples! is a pre-school video intended for children aged 2-6.  There is no sex or foul language.  The only mildly violent act appears in a brief fantasy sequence, showing that hitting someone when they snatch a toy is the wrong way to behave.  The hitting was clearly condemned as a bad choice of action.  The character involved chooses to share and forgive, rather than get upset and slap his friend.

 

Booples! is strongly Christian-themed, with verbatim Bible verses in the song lyrics and a character named Baa, a lamb who lives in a church, giving advice to the Booples.  Some messages are universal, about sharing, forgiving, and loving one another, but there is no question that the DVDs are produced by Christians and will be best received by families who are open to Christian teachings and scriptures.  The animation is cute and colorful; the Booples have funny voices and say silly nonsense words that will tickle little viewers.  The DVDs are light-hearted and fun with songs that are catchy and bubbly.  The brief length of each segment is also good for short attention spans of pre-schoolers.

 

Booples! is appropriate for any age group, but the targeted 2-6 year old audience will enjoy it most. Because of its gentle teaching of positive values, the PTC is pleased to award Booples!  the PTC Seal of ApprovalTM.
