SuperWhy! Live (Review)

We saw SuperWhy! Live this past weekend!  You guys know we love live shows, so when we heard that SuperWhy! was touring America (and the first leg of the tour would be kicked off in the Southeast!) we were pretty excited.

Super Why! is a PBS Kids show created to help preschool children learn to read.  When we ran across it on TV one day a while back, I was impressed (M was already familiar with it as they do SuperWhy! activities at preschool) .  What parent wouldn't love a show that uses literacy-powered superheroes?

At first I didn't know what to expect in the live show since the actual show is animated, but the live characters were so adorable and energetic. I particularly appreciated that they stayed true to the show.  Everything kids see on TV, they saw in the live show...

...and even more.  Like when Princess Pea imagined herself a rockstar.  M loves Princess Pea (or Princess Presto, when she's in superhero form).  I'm sure M was thrilled to see the princess in a skirt and leggings since she has a slight obsession with those, too.

The only thing that M didn't necessarily like about the show was the "confetti boom" (you know where it sounds like they fire a cannon but instead it's ton of confetti?).  But she has always hated loud, thunderous noises, so I'm sure the confetti boom (which I think happens twice during the show) excites most kids. :-)

Other than that, she was just in awe the whole time.  She LOVED seeing Whyatt, Pig, Red Riding Hood, and Princess Pea in person.  As we were leaving, she said, "Great job, SuperWhy!" :-)  I couldn't agree more.  (The show also made DK and I feel kinda normal when we sang along to all the songs and knew all the phrases - and every other parent in the concert hall did, too. Ha!)

M in her souvenir shirt!  When I asked her to let me snap a pic of her in it, she went into full performance mode -- singing the songs and doing the dances.  She's still pumped from the show (and will tell anyone who listens that she went).

Go to to find a show near you.  (This is the first leg of the tour, so if you don't see your city just yet, check back later.)  It's fun, high-energy, and educational -- a win, win, win, in my book!

Disclaimer:  We were provided complimentary tickets to the show, but all opinions are 100% mine.
