There is a new show on the Hub Network that seems like it was made just for my boys.  It is called Kaijudo, and it has a little bit of quite a few of their favorite things.  The cartoon sets up a good vs evil scenario involving this world and another dimension.  It has some familiar and well loved elements often seen in this genre of show combined with fresh new ideas.  The kids really like it.

Our hero is Ray.  He and two friends, Allie and Gabe are recruited to train as Kaijudo Duel Masters.  This is a secret society who need to find and protect special creatures from an evil sect called the Choten.

The main bad guy is "The Choten".  He is a tech wizard, who also knows a little bit of magic.  Like all bad guys, he has minions.  They are quite busy trying to capture all of the creatures. Their plan is to use the powers they possess in order to break "the veil" that separates the dimensions and then gain control of both worlds.

We were sent a preview copy of some of the episodes, along with some fun promotional items from our friends at Mommy Parties.

My sons loved the Ninja style headbands with the Kaijudo logos, and a promotional poster is signed by the shows creators.

We watched a DVD with a recap of the premiere, and two full length episodes.

Both boys are looking forward to Saturday night to see the next episode!
