Parents and Kids Love Buddie!

We love the episodes!

by Michelle

"Buddie’s there for my daughter to be her journaling buddy when I can’t. She loves Buddie’s stories and ways of explaining things in ways that encourage her. She plays episodes over and over again and is actually working through the journal! Thank you!"

Buddie teaches important lessons!

"[My son] says Buddie is his cool new friend who teaches him important lessons. I’m a single mom who’s still working full-time from home and has a baby on my hip all day. Even though I can’t be Kyle’s journaling buddy I’m grateful that Buddie is! Buddie keeps my son wanting to learn and become a confident big life buddy to his friends. Thank you!"
