We love it

My 8 yo son enjoys it and even my 2 yo daughter enjoys watching the episodes. I am so glad I found these videos and the journal. We are using it as an activity to do 2 times a week between classes.

Great series

My 7 year old enjoyed that Buddy was very active and outgoing. My 11 year old enjoyed the animation look.

Love Buddie!

My daughter, age 10, really liked the background music, the animation/doodles. The way the ‘buddie’ is going to lead you through it, step by step. I liked the tone used when talking.. like a teacher would when reading a story.
