Word World – Where Words Come Alive

The creator of Word World – Where Words Come Alive must be a genius! A REAL genius! Thank goodness for Word World!

We were first introduced to Word World back in January 2010 when Darling redeemed a set of Word World VCD’s from his credit card points. Ethan loves it instantly that his collection of Word World VCD/DVDs has been growing tremendously throughout the years. His latest Word World episode is Mmm.. Mmm… Milk.

Mmm… Mmm… Milk

I very super salute this episode. I kenot thank this episode enough! You know why? Let me tell you why.

There is a scene where Pig says, “You have to try everything new. If you don’t try it, how would you know that you DON’T like it?” (or something along that line.. )

KABOOM! Ethan has been living with that philosophy ever since! Yesterday I fed him something new, roti MILO (to him it’s new-lah, to us it’s not :P). Initially he refused to eat it insisting to have his daily cheese bread instead. But suddenly, he recalls what PIG said and told that me, “Pig says ‘you have to try everything new. If you don’t try it, how would you know that you DON’T like it?’

That very instant, I put my hands together and said out loud, “THANK YOU!” I dunno who I was thanking (most probably the creator of Word World but they won’t be able to hear me anyway) but if you are a mother like me, you’ll know how difficult it is sometimes when you introduce something new to your child and he refused to take it. Now, all I have to do is remind Ethan what PIG said and he’ll try it :D

But guess what? No matter how much impact PIG’s words are to Ethan, he still won’t want to try DURIAN! Arrgh!!! If only I can find a solution to THAT!! >_<

    My daughter is a fan of Word World too. She watches it over Disney Junior but I haven't notice that episode yet or maybe we've missed it. But you know what even before this, I've told her that exact sentence before. It doesn't work for my girl. Sigh. Maybe I need Pig to tell her that only she will listen. How sad.

    Carolyn, I've learned by now that what we Mommies say to the kids usually don't have that much impact unlike PIG or their teachers or something/someone they look up too. He listens very much to his teachers these days… and PIG too :P

    Aiya, I think after years seeing a durian queen eat durians, someday he'll start trying to eat it. Look at the bright side, he won't fight over the durians with you now. You can eat all that durian by yourself. LOL

    But I think there some things that cant be applied for example drugs and smoking. Do you want Ethan to try drugs and smoking?

    ya, he might change his mind about durian when he is older.

    World Word is very good, my daughter learn a lot through the program too especially spelling and pronounciation.

    Btw, give Ethan sometime to change his mind to try one durian. I believe he would change his mind one day if he always gets approaches of it.
