Peg + Cat: Pirates Ahoy! DVD Review


My girls LOVE Peg + Cat! PBS Kids is their absolute favorite thing to watch. I don’t know that I want to admit this but we usually have the TV on in the background while playing in the mornings and PBS Kids is always on. When Peg + Cat first started, my 3 year old did not like it. But, that was because it messed up her schedule and Word World was no longer on. Once she gave it a fair shot, it became a favorite! I love that it really helps the girls with their math. Even my (almost) 2 year old answers the questions right a lot and helps them solve problems! I was so excited to see that they were releasing a new DVD- PEG + CAT: PIRATES AHOY! AND OTHER REALLY BIG PROBLEMS – because I know it would be a great addition to our DVD collection!

From helping a group of hungry pirates fairly share tropical fruit, to measuring their way to buried treasure, Peg and Cat embark on swashbuckling adventures in this new fun-filled DVD that will help kids learn problem solving and foundational math concepts and skills. Each PEG + CAT adventure features a story in which Peg and Cat encounter an unexpected challenge that requires them to use math and problem-solving skills in order to save the day. While teaching specific math lessons, the series displays the values of resilience and perseverance.

The “PEG + CAT: PIRATES AHOY! AND OTHER REALLY BIG PROBLEMS” DVD will be available for purchase on December 23, 2014 – so just in time to pick up a last minute stocking stuffer! In addition to featuring seven stories, the DVD includes five printable activities – the pirates’ fruit salad recipe, pirates + peaches board game, four fantastic flip-books, Cat sock-beanie instructions, and PEG + CAT stick puppets.

My girls loved everything about this DVD, and I am sure the children in your life will too!  For more information on specific PBS KIDS content supporting literacy, science, math and more, visit, or follow PBS KIDS on Twitter and Facebook.
