John Tartaglia’s Imaginocean review and giveaway

John Tartaglia’s Imaginocean is an amazing show for kids 2 and up. The story of 3 fish is highly engaging to the kids as they’re super bright in colors based on the blacklight approach the show takes.  Its interactive as many times the puppets break the 4th wall to interact with the crowd.

The story is great for kids as it adds some mystery as the main characters are taken on a treasure hunt.  There are of course morals being shown to kids during each of the acts. Be it sharing or not being afraid the show incorporated story, song and more into a very fun filled time.

I totally recommend this show for kids as young as two years old, I took my 27 month old and he loved it! The characters are something that you’d figure would be in a disney movie and as such my child really wants a Dorsal doll.  John has put together an amazing cast of voices that do a great job bring the characters to life.
