Helpsters! Everything Starts With A Plan

“High fives and handshakes, what a difference a plan makes…” this song is constantly in my head and we sing it all the time our house, but as a planner, I definitely don’t mind. I love that there is a show that is geared towards young kids that helps them understand the importance of serving others, how to make and execute a plan, all while having fun too!

The show is Helpsters, and it streams on AppleTV+. Season 2 just became available and the series continues to help preschoolers explore the power of teamwork as puppets Cody, Scatter, Mr. Primm and Heart join a cadre of new celebrity and musical guests to solve problems. Featured guest stars in the new season include Terry Crews, Danny Trejo, Gabby Douglas, and more.

The recipient of a Parents’ Choice Gold Medal Award and Common Sense Media Award, Helpsters has been recognized as “immersive, educational, and entertaining.” The series teaches young viewers important lessons in pre-coding skills and inspires self-confidence, collaboration, effective communication and much more.

We got a chance to talk with Cody (Puppeteer Stephanie D’Abruzzo) about how she feels when she helps others and to Jordan Geary (Senior Director of Production and Development, Sesame Workshop) to find out more about the curriculum underpinning the fun.

And, the Helpsters were so busy that they forgot to plan for Halloween. From now through November 1, you can stream the Halloween episode where Sofia is getting ready for the big day and needs help thinking of a scary story for free. (WATCH HERE) After you watch the episode, the Helpsters have this fun edible activity to get your family into the spooky season.
