Wishenpoof Plot: What is it about?
The series is about a young six years old girl named Bianca who has wish magic and can make wishes come true. She uses it to help others and goes on many magical adventures with her friends in a place called the Enchanted Forest. In every episode, Bianca learns something new. Bianca has a lot of imagination, fairy wings and a dandelion wand that makes wishes come true. This show has all the ingredients a preschooler can wish for! Wishenpoof, however, is different from most shows for children. Despite having the magic element, it does not encourage the thinking amongst children that you need magic to solve all your problems or that only magic can make all your problems disappear. There is one such episode in the series when one girl in Bianca’s class makes one of her friends feel bad about her drawing by shooting down her imagination. Bianca’s first thought is to use magic to make the girl feel bad too. But her best friend Bob the bear comes in with a very useful and important reminder. He tells Bianca that with or without magic when she sees something that is not right, she should say something, which is a very important lesson for young kids to learn and remember.
The show teches kids to differentiate between what is wrong and right. It is also teaching them to use their words when they see something happening that is not right or hurting them. It also encourages them to reach out and take help from adults. The episodes are fun and filled with mermaids and baby unicorns but also with important lessons of life. When asked Angela about the show she said,” I’ve been so inspired over the years by talking to parents who are interested in how I create my shows. Because I have a Masters in Child Dev psychology, I believe in using formative research to ensure that we are teaching kids through their screens. Whether it’s reading (Super Why!) or social-emotional skills (Daniel Tiger’s Neighborhood and Wishenpoof!) or the arts (Creative Galaxy) or kindergarten readiness skills (Blue’s Clues)—my goal is to educate. I want to educate, empower, and inspire preschoolers through each show.” Santomero also said that her inspiration was Mr Roger, a show that she had watched as a preschooler which also aimed at educating the kids through the screens. She joked that she also wanted to follow in his sneakers!
