It Is Time to Use Your Imagination With Kazoops

This post is part of a sponsored campaign for Kazoops. I received compensation for my participation, but my review and opinions are my own.


Andrew and I watched the first episode of the new Netflix show, Kazoops. It was adorable. The show is for children ages 3-6. It is bright and colorful and there are some cute songs, which did not get stuck in my head, so that is great. I’ve watched so many kids shows in the past 10 years that I am grateful to ones that have solid songs that you can enjoy, but not find yourself absentmindedly singing. The show follows the adventures of six-year old Monty and his best friend, Jimmy Jones, the family pet pig. Monty has a mom, dad, grandmother and older sister also in his family. Monty uses his vivid imagination to challenge preconceptions about life such as “you have to wear matching socks” or “all games need rules” and, in doing so, demonstrates the value of critical thinking and creative play.

Creative is an excellent way to describe the show. From the episode I saw it was a nice show with some creative animation. There are moments in the show when Monty closes his eyes and tells his pig, Jimmy Jones, “just imagine”. It is then that the animation changes from a 3D sort of animation to a more 2D animation. Those moments the animation has a real paper feel to it. It is quite beautiful. You just know that Monty is in his creative zone during those moments of imagination. Monty is a kid who is so full of life and curiosity. He’s looking for ways to accomplish things, but in his own unique way. The problem solving is also more subtle than other kids shows, it does not hit you over the head with the message. Kids pick up on the message without hearing it over and over.

Fame and Fortune are Coming Your Way

Fame and Fortune are Coming Your Way

Fame and Fortune are Coming Your Way

Seems pretty straightforward. I just have to sit and wait for fame and fortune to happen, excuse me for bringing back a phrase from Wayne’s World, NOT! No one sits on their ass and is handed a fortune unless a rich relative kicks off and believe me that isn’t gonna happen to this non famous blogger. The name Mohegan is the favorite “Sun” in these parts.

Plan of Action

You want fame and fortune you have to work for it and you have to work hard. If you are part of the make money crowd then you figure that within a year you’ll be at John Chow status, not likely. Maybe if you wear T-shirts each week and shave your head you’d be as famous as shoemoney, wrong again. These guys had to work to get where they are. They’ve worked so hard to attain their notorious noteworthy statuses that whatever they do now looks like they aren’t working at all.

Learn as Much as You Can

I see so many people start off talking the talk but they cannot walk the walk. They do not take the time to learn from those who have gone before. Sure they have downloaded and read every e-book that is out there but they haven’t actually learned anything. Learning comes from experience, the trying and failing and getting back up to try again. Because the road is long and paved with failures many people will give up. Only those who continue to learn, adapt and evolve will be fortunate enough to attain that which they are seeking.

What Makes You an Expert?

I’m no expert, I’m not even a Famous Blogger. I just have the ability to look at things realistically and see the trends I’ve been seeing for the past 5 years and those who don’t learn, adapt and evolve constantly tend to stagnate and quit. So, that was today’s FortunateBluFrog Message. What do you think gets people to that point where they attain fame and fortune?
