Parents who are looking to get the most out of their Amazon Prime memberships — you know, aside from the discounted diapers and access to free two-day shipping — are in luck. That’s because three new or returning Amazon original series premieres will be released this fall. And by the looks of it, your kids will love them.
Wishenpoof : New season premiered on Sept. 26
Wishenpoof’s main character, Bianca, is a fairy who can grant wishes using wish magic. This Amazon original series follows her thought process as she thinks, decides and solves problems in her own creative way. Whether she’s at home in Wish World, at the Willow Tree with her fairy friends or at school with her non-fairy friends, Bianca and her teddy bear sidekick, Bob, navigate day-to-day problems with a little help from Bianca’s mom — and of course, wish magic. Even better? This gorgeously-animated series features a new song by Bianca in each episode for little ones to sing along.
Season two of Wishenpoof was released on Sept. 26. You can also use your Amazon Prime membership to catch up on season one here.

I don’t know about you, but I’m particularly excited for the If You Give a Mouse a Cookie series. My kids have read every book in this series, and the show looks absolutely adorable. Plus, this mama’s getting tired of watching the same three movies (Sing, Trolls and Inside Out, thanks to my 3-year-old) over and over and over and over and over … Yeah, it’s way past time to branch out.
