My Thoughts:
My daughter and I are huge fans of Disney Jr. It's the channel we turn to first when we are looking for a fun show to watch together. That is where I was introduced to Jake and the Never Land Pirates for the first time. I was impressed with this show since the first time I saw it and my daughter has been a fan ever since.

Jake and the Never Land Pirates focuses on three friends, Jake, Cubby and Izzy. Oh, and of course, their trusty parrot, Skully.  I love the dynamic of this team. They truly act as a team and always put their friendship first. They are constantly finding themselves running into trouble with the mischievous Captain Hook and his side kick, Mr. Smee. But they take their viewers along for the adventure, enlisting them in help solving puzzles. They work together and earn their gold doubloons for solving pirate problems.

My daughter thinks the characters are fun and often laughs at the sneaky but silly Captain Hook. So I knew she would really enjoy a full length adventure with her friends. And having Peter Pan show up was an added bonus! She was engaged with the show from beginning to end and was anxious to tell her daddy all about how she went on an adventure to save Bucky from the mean Captain Hook.

I think this is a great show to share with your preschoolers to teach them about friendship, working together, right and wrong, and getting some educational skills along the way.
