Meet the stars of The Upside Down Show, brothers Shane and David. In each episode, they set out on a journey to a place they've never been, and - as it turns out - they've never been anywhere! Just like your preschooler, everything is new and exciting to them, whether they're going to the airport, the movie theater, or the moon. Along the way, they make a few wrong turns, ending up in the Outer Space Room, the Orange Room, the Puppy Room, the Frozen Room, even the Game Show Room!
The Upside Down Show breaks new ground with interactivity, by inviting young viewers to take charge of an imaginary remote control with which to "operate" the brothers, fast-forwarding, rewinding, or pausing them whenever needed. And there are many unexpected "wild card" buttons on this imaginary remote control, like a "rotate button," an "itchy button," and, of course, an "upside down button." The remote control becomes a fun tool that reinforces new vocabulary and relational concepts as children play along with the show.
