When I was asked if Jack and I would be interested in checking out a brand-new children’s series from Amazon, I immediately said yes. Want to know why? Well, because it was The Stinky & Dirty Show. I mean, what mom could possibly pass up watching a show with the words “stinky” and “dirty” in the title?!

Just the name of the show causes immediate giggles in our house!

The Stinky & Dirty Show follows the adventures of best friends, Stinky (the garbage truck) and Dirty (the backhoe loader). Throughout each episode, the friends learn how to be resourceful when things don’t go as expected. If it sounds a little familiar, it is because the show is based on the “I Stink” books by Jim and Kate McMullan.

The new series will become available for Prime members as part of their membership in both the US and UK starting on September 2, and will also be available in Germany, Austria and Japan later this year.

The reason I like the show – other than its fantastic name – is that the series’ curriculum was developed by Dr. Alice Wilder and Jessica Lahey, author of the New York Times best-seller The Gift of Failure: How the Best Parents Learn to Let Go So Their Children Can Succeed.

For Jack, a show about a garbage truck and backhoe loader isn’t exactly a hard-sell in our house. From the first moments of the theme song, Jack was singing along. As an added bonus, I’ve been hearing “Stinky and Dirty… that’s all I want to be!” sung at the top of his lungs… especially around bath time.

One of the main themes of the show is recycling and Jack was inspired by the show to make his own rocket-ship out of items from our recycle bin. Here is what we started with — a cup holder, waffle box, Burger King hat, and more:

Recycling Project 1

We started by turning the waffle box inside out and taping the ripped up cup holder to the bottom as the rocket boosters. Then, I snipped the hat apart and Jack taped the pieces to the top of his rocket.

Recycling Project 2

All it needed was a couple doors and a wolf (obviously), and Jack had his very own recycled rocket to play with!
