There is no greater feeling than helping someone. I have always felt this way, and I hope to teach my kids the same love and compassion when they have an opportunity to help someone. This is why I love the show, Helpsters from Apple TV Plus. This show and it’s loveable characters are teaching kids the importance of asking for help, and being a helper.
In Season Two of “Helpsters,” preschoolers continue to explore the power of teamwork as puppets Cody, Scatter, Mr. Primm and Heart join a cadre of new celebrity and musical guests to solve problems. The Helpsters approach any challenge – from party-planning to magic trick mastery, and even mountain-climbing – with a can-do attitude, because everything starts with a plan.
I had the pleasure of interviewing my favorite Helpster and the Director of this amazing show! See why Cody says helping is so important!
Featured guest stars in the new season include Terry Crews, Danny Trejo, Gabby Douglas, Christopher Meloni, Richard Kind, Michael Ian Black, Janeane Garofalo, Michelle Buteau, and Judah Friedlander, with musical guests including Talib Kweli, Matt Berninger, Jason Mraz, K. Flay, Norah Jones, and Ingrid Michaelson.
The recipient of a Parents’ Choice Gold Medal Award and Common Sense Media Award, “Helpsters” has been recognized as “immersive, educational, and entertaining.” The series teaches young viewers important lessons in pre-coding skills and inspires self-confidence, collaboration, effective communication and much more.
This show really is amazing. I love how much kids absorb from characters they admire. Sharing, caring, STEM, and problem solving are all areas kids will learn about when watching the show.
