Our house loves Oobi. It's a constant in our lives. I have a 9 year old son with Autism who adores Oobi. He's constantly doing Oobi "hand puppets" and we are looking to purchase a second set of Oobi eyes for upcoming Christmas for him. He wore out his last ones that he got when he was 4. This show makes him laugh (which can be hard to do) and encourages his speech. We have even gotten through difficult times, transitions, and meltdowns by doing Oobi "conversations." I'm looking all over for DVDs but they are hard to find. So even if it's not your cup of tea, don't diss it totally because there ARE kids out there that love it and can even benefit from it. My 4 year old loves it as well!
