WIZZY GIZMO GETS A THUMBS UP



Disclaimer: I received a free product in exchange for my unbiased review of the product. This review is my honest opinion and evaluation of this product.


Wizzy Gizmo is a company that produces books, audio dramas, and learning cards for Christian families to aid in the growth of their faith. They are useful as a home school resource and Bible study time by families. Their website describes the producers as thus: 

We are parents, pastors, worship leaders, Sunday School teachers, and Homeschoolers who are committed to equipping our children for life, by planting them firmly in God's Word; and we want to help you do the same! Why? Because we believe that, “All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.”

I chose to receive and review the audio drama Who Created Everything? From the Book of Genesis Chapter One. I specifically chose an audio drama because my children and I have long enjoyed listening to audio dramas on tape or CD. This one from Wizzy Gizmo did not disappoint us.

Wizzy Gizmo is a young genius inventor who, according to the company, loves God and loves to explore the Bible. He creates inventions that help explore the world around him, and one of his inventions, Gizmovision, makes any book come alive, inside a bubble. As Wizzy explains in the beginning, the children who join him in the adventure will be able to see, hear, feel, taste, etc. what is happening in the book used by the invention. 

Wizzy Gizmo and his friends start their first journey using this interesting invention to explore the amazing creation of the earth and all that is in it, as recorded in Genesis chapter one. I won’t spoil things and reveal everything that happens to Wiz and the rest of the gang, but they have an adventure that brings the Bible to life for them in a way they will never forget. 

The characters are bright and engaging, the drama realistic enough to make you feel you are really there. There are songs interspersed that are catchy and make you want to learn them (by listening again and again!) and sing along. 

This particular audio drama is recommended for ages 4-12, but I enjoyed listening to it too. My children that listened to it are 11, 14, and 26 (she has Down syndrome and is developmentally at a 4 year old level in some skills and understanding). 

This audio drama is definitely something we will listen to again and again at home and especially on long drives. My children and I definitely give it a thumbs up.
