  About the DVD  
   

Synopsis

In Global Wonders: India, Danny and Marisa visit Raj and Asha for a play date where they are introduced to Indian customs like removing their shoes before entering the home, naan flatbread, and Diwali, the festival of lights. Join the safari search for Asha's lost stuffed tiger and discover more cultural wonders along the way including cricket and carom, the inspirational tale of Prince Ram and the Mighty Bow, and the wisdom of Mahatma Gandhi. As the safari concludes, it's not only Asha's tiger that is found...but a new curiosity in all the cultural discoveries shared throughout the day.

Reviews - Global Wonders: India

"As the world grows smaller -- and children grow smarter -- along comes Global Wonders, a warm and delightful new series that joyfully invites kids to open the door to the glorious diversity of our international family. Colorfully animated, cleverly scripted and crammed with live-action clips that depict the rich tapestry of our shared world culture, Global Wonders is destined to take its place among the best and brightest of children's entertainment. I love this series!" -- Bruce Kluger, Parenting Magazine




"Highly engaging through the entire program with colorful, high quality animation. Receives an overall A Grade and the TTT mark of excellence indicating that a product has been triple tested by trained researchers, educators, parents and children. A toy with a TTT rating means that it exceeds our standards and has been rated to deliver a fun play experience that also stimulates developmental learning skills." -- Marianne Szymanski Toy Tips Magazine and The Toy Research Institute




"As with each of the titles in the series, Global Wonders India presents culture as the element that gives color to life. It manages to transform an ordinary play date with friends into a magical journey into another world, and thus has the potential to be a psychologically transforming and culturally enriching experience for children of any culture. Using the Rakhi as a reminder of the obligations of friendship and Gandhi as a model for leadership helps provide children guidelines for life, on how to behave, and on being friends." -- Dr. J.K. Nugent, Child Development Expert. Founder, Brazelton Institute, Childrens Hospital, Boston and Harvard Medical School




"My four year old daughter loves this series. Like most four year old girls, she can be very picky (about everything!) and this is her hands down favorite things to watch. While being very entertaining (some of the Baby and Little Einstein people are the creative forces behind this), this is also a great educational experience. Our daughter has asked us to learn more about some of the themes touched on in this series. Overall, this is very highly recommended." -- Debbie




"Add Global Wonders to your holiday gift list! Kids will enjoy watching the characters play, sing, and share experiences. A great way to build connections to a positive global community." -- Examiner.com




"It was an instant hit with my 4-year old daughter. She loved all the characters and immediately related to one child that looked just like her. She really loved learning about different cultures and recognizing some places and landmarks that she has seen in books and in our family travel photos. She literally wanted to pause it when I tried to talk to her about something so that she did not miss a second of the show. An instant favorite in our house! Best of all is that I really loved the video too. Global Wonders is definitely on my go-to list as a great holiday gift this year." -- Kristen Stoller, Oakland, California
