Balloonatiks: The Collector's DVD - Review and Giveaway


Balloonatiks aren't something that I've heard of until recently. I'm surprised me or the kids haven't yeard of it yet. This group of characters, made up of balloons, are sworn to protect Hot Air City. The main characters consist of Sparky, Squeeker, Bouncer, Leaky, Flator, and Airbrain.

There's a website dedicated to Balloonatiks that is full of information, facts, and games pertaining to science. My kids have browed the site a few times and have found some entertaining things to check out. They think they're having fun and I know they're learning a few things. It's a win-win situation. It seems that there's still parts of the site that are under construction. The kids are excited to see what will be added.



Balloonatiks even has its own DVD. So far there's only one but the kids hope that it turns into a TV series or at least comes out with more DVDs. The DVD includes two short episodes of the Balloonatiks saving Hot Air City from villains. The first is Meet Deflator and the second is Pop Goes the Balloonatiks.

I sat down and watched Balloonatiks: The Collector's DVD with four of the kids. We enjoyed the characters and the episodes made us chuckle a few times. The CGI effects gave the characters personality and they were fun to watch. Although there were villains in the episodes, they were not scary or overly mean. In fact, the first villain was quite funny without even saying a word. Each Balloontaik has its own special powers, all relating to things that could be done with a balloon. My personal favorite was Sparky, who could thwart villains with her ability to create static with her head.

The fact that the episodes were short had its advantages and disadvantages. The kids were able to watch it without having to sit a long time in front of the TV or get easily bored. However, I would prefer if the episodes were a tad bit longer to develop more plot between the characters.
