Amazon Studios Annedroids is a Hit!

I am always on the lookout for new educational television shows for Lincoln.  When I had the opportunity to preview the new children's series Annedroids on Amazon Prime,  I was pretty excited! 

Here's a little background on the series:

Annedroids is Amazon Studios’ third original kids series. It  is geared towards children ages 4-7 and first debuted on July 25th on Prime Instant Video.
Annedroids is a science based-action adventure series that follows eleven-old genius and kid-scientist Anne, who has invented and built her own amazing androids, and her friends and kid assistants Nick and Shania. Together the kid trio make amazing scientific discoveries while undertaking the biggest experiment of all: growing up.

Annedroids was created by JJ Johnson. The talent behind the characters includes Addison Holley as ”Anne” and Adrianna Di Liello as her friend “Shania."

Annedroids, like all of Amazon’s children’s programs, is designed to develop creative thinking in children and has been tested to ensure they achieve this goal. Amazon’s goal is to inspire lifelong learners and provide children with the skills that will help them find personal and professional satisfaction in their future.

Earlier this summer, Amazon Studios released two additional children’s series: a stop-motion animated series encouraging creative scientific discovery called Tumble Leaf and an interactive art adventure for preschoolers called Creative Galaxy.

Although I am a mom to boys, there is something I really can appreciate about Annedroids, and the message it is trying to give its viewers.  This is a show that teaches girl power.  Anne is seriously a rock star.  I mean, she's a genius.  She's an eleven year old GIRL scientist.  What is not to love about that?!
I want to teach my boys that girls are strong.  Girls can do anything.  I want them to respect women.  This show encourages all of those things.
To be honest with you, I wasn't sure how Lincoln was going to like this series.  The show is for ages 4-7, and although he's 4.5, everything he watches is animated. When I realized this wasn't, I was a bit nervous.
I think I watched him more than I watched the first episode.  I watched to see if he was paying attention.  If it was holding his interest.  I watched to see his reactions.  Was he smiling? 
When it ended, his response was, "MOM!  It's OVER?!  It can't be over already!  I like that show!"
I smiled and told him he could watch the next episode, to which he replied, "MOM! This show is Annedroids!!"
I had to stop and think for a moment, but I didn't ever tell him the name of the show.  Clearly, he was paying attention!  And, it certainly held his interest!!

Lincoln is very excited about this new series, and I am too! 
Will you be watching Annedroids with your children?
