Handy Manny School for Tools - Guide Review
Kids will enjoy Handy Manny School for Tools and learning about new and different tools and their functions. Kids' natural fascination with tools and the silly characteristics of Manny's anthropomorphic friends make the TV series a winner, so the short form series will delight little viewers as well. I'm pretty excited for my kids to meet Sneeze the Shop Vac, as they have quite the fascination with the shop vac that sits in our garage. Hey, maybe I will even be inspired to get more use out of it.
In addition to educating kids about tools, the short is intended to help kids see the importance of cooperation and recognizing each person's individual talents. As Manny's usual tools try to fit themselves into the various fix-it jobs, Manny explains which certain tool is actually the best fit for each task. Kids will see that, while every tool wants to be in the spotlight, it's OK to let everyone take a turn and that each tool has a unique contribution to make. Whether viewing children are able to apply these lessons to their own lives on their own or not depends on the age and stage of each individual kid, but either way, kids can learn something from these little segments on some level.
