Blue's Room - Guide Review
The original series, Blue's Room is one of the longest running and most well known TV shows to incorporate the current interactive standard for preschoolers' television. The Blue's Clues format - collecting three clues from Blue and putting them together to figure out the answer to a question - engages kids' in problem solving in a way that no other show has been able to equal.
Blue's Room also incorporates some problem solving, but the show is more focused on building early literacy and other academic preschool skills. Blue's Room is fun, has a great format and lovable characters, and is effective in carrying out the outlined educational goals. So, while it is not as unique as the original Blue's Clues, kids will love Blue's Room and I am sure parents will too.
