  1. Fun video! I imagine this would be great for little kids ^-^

  2. My 9YO declared that this is "kinda cute", "sorta fun", "educational", and "cute". I hope very much that you will be able to make more.

    P.S. I like your CAPCHA, too.

  3. My 3 yr old watched it twice and wanted to watch a third time. My 1.5 yr old also liked watching it, because she liked watching Adabot.

    PS. I also really like your CAPCHA concept, but I’m colorblind.
