CLOSED: Yo Gabba Gabba!: Circus DVD (+Giveaway)- 3 winners




* Click here to view the name(s) of the winner(s)*

Nickelodeon Home Entertainment
brings Yo Gabba Gabba!: Circus into your home on June 14, 2011.


The Buzz:

This 95 minute DVD features 4 active episodes that include....


Circus

Muno, Foofa, Brobee, Toodee and Plex help Al the Ringmaster (Weird Al Yankovic) make a circus in Gabba Land! Brobee learns to be a clown and everyone gets to perform. The episode also features Sarah Silverman.


Treasure Hunt

Two special guests (Fred Armisen and Charlyne Yi) travel to Gabbaland to search for hidden treasure. As everyone joins in the search, they all do a special dance in the secret ice cave.



Flying


Brobee and friends go on a hot air balloon ride and meet new friend Sparkles.



Fun


All the Gabba characters learn different ways to have fun, learn to eat healthy portions and how to use their bodies to dance and make music.



E.B. Mommy's Report:

We actually enjoyed watching this DVD even though we're not very big Yo Gabba Gabba! fans. Bunny girl thought "Circus" and "Fun" were the most entertaining. We've been talking to Bunny girl about the importance of making healthy choices when it comes to food and addressing the importance of portion sizes in the "Fun" episode dealt with this from another angle.(I know it seemed like we'd conspired with DJ Lance and the gang to bring up the subject!)

As a Mommy I can't understand why Bunny girl enjoys watching Foofa and the DJ but I have to admit that the songs and episodes do convey a simple but educational thought for the young viewer.


Buy it:

You can pre-order Yo Gabba Gabba!: Circus on Amazon at a reduced price of 12.99 US$. (Original Price: 16.99 US$)


Win it:

Three readers will win the opportunity to own a copy each of Yo Gabba Gabba!: Circus DVD

CLOSED: Sing, Race or Dig! (Angelina, Roary and Bob DVD Giveaways)- 3 winners

.

* Click here to view the name(s) of the winner(s)*

Just when you thought things were quiet on the Hit Entertainment and Lionsgate Production front, they're bursting into summer with three exciting releases.
Get set to sing with Angelina Ballerina, Race with Roary the Race Car and Dig with Bob the Builder!


The Buzz:

In Angelina Ballerina: Pop Star Girls get ready to get your groove on because it's showtime with Angelina and the Pop Star Girls. While all the dancers learn to work together, Angelina realizes she loves Hip Hop, rock bands, fiddles and more! Move and groove along with Angelina as she directs a Hip Hop musical and discovers she was born to be a star. The whole family will be star-struck with delight as Angelina steps it up in her best performance yet.


Stepping up her beat in a 61 minute DVD featuring 5 Pop episodes is Angelina Ballerina. A small step away from your usual ballet episodes, we found
  • Angelina's Crazy Solo.
  • Angelina's Rock Band
  • Angelina's Hip Hop Boys Show
  • Angelina and the Giant and
  • Angelina and the Broken Fiddle
to be entertaining but perhaps because Bunny girl is very taken up with ballet, these episodes didn't excite her as much.


On the other hand she did have fun watching something I thought would be a little out of her "girly" league....Roary the Racing Car

In Roary the Racing Car, start your engines for fun and excitement with Roary The Racing Car and his racetrack buddies, Tin Top, Zizzy, Dragga, and mischievous Maxi, as they zoom into exciting high-speed adventures. The racetrack becomes a pit stop of great times as everyone goes the extra mile for Marsha’s birthday party, Big Chris becomes a babysitter, and Rusty is on a roll…without wheels! Put your pedal to the metal and buckle up for big-time fun from start to finish !


Roary is a racing favorite on the Sprout channel, so to get to see him at leisure on your very own DVD is.....speed-eriffic! This 55 minute DVD features 6 quick episodes that will teach your preschooler the importance of helping others, doing what's right, staying safe, having good friends, being level headed, being responsible and solving problems. Our favorite episodes were Stars and Cars and Big Chris Forgets.


Another summer treat to look forward to is the Bob the Builder: The Big Dino Dig movie. Grab your shovels and join the fun as Bob the Builder and his terrific team dig up ancient surprises in this all-new movie. A new truck named Rubble joins the Can-Do Crew to help build an enormous amusement park, but when things get difficult with seagulls and impossible lumps, it’s up to the team to work together to finish the job, unearthing some prehistoric dinosaur bones along the way. Hold on to your hard hat for a roller coaster ride of thrills, discovery and fun!


Dinosaur bones, Bob and the "Can Do" team will entertain your little builder with this 61 minute movie packed with problem solving enthusiasm, teamwork and determination.

And if you plan to take your little one to LEGOLAND over the summer, don't forget to save the "Free Child Ticket to any LEGOLAND" coupon on the face of the DVD. Great offer....entertainment and savings rolled into one!


(Thanks to Andrea Blain Public Relations we received these dvds to preview.)

Exploring Bugs, Creepy Crawlies & More (A Learning Resources Review)


A month ago I was introduced to a company that has been in existence since the past 25 years and is a leading manufacturer of innovative, hands on educational materials for the classroom and learning toys for the home. I am ashamed to admit that Learning Resources is new to me but a household one for many of you.

Looking through the site was exciting as it's filled with great educational toys and resources for kids catering to sharpening different skills from imaginative play, manipulatives and exploration to creative play and early skill development. They even have toys to help children with special needs.

With summer just a week or so away, I'm sure you must be googling "outdoor activity ideas" already. Well, if you have a little Explorer on your hands then check out the Learning Resources Discovery and Exploration toys.


The Buzz:

A year ago I had a curious little Explorer who loved to pick up creepy crawlies and bugs with her bare hands. Well not anymore. That little Explorer now goes "Eeeeeew" or squeals at the sight of anything that crawls , thus the two "fun" exploratory toys we received to review would sadly be of little interest to her....we know several little boys who would jump for joy though!

Honestly which little fellow wouldn't want a set of 6 Big View Bug Jars?


These neat 4.5" high jars come with lids that seal tight and air vents to allow the live bug under observation to breathe. With this you can use the opportunity to teach your child that it is important not to harm even slimy/hairy/ ugly looking creepy crawlies especially if they haven't done anything to harm him/her. Your child should be shown how to gently place them in the bug jar and gently release them after the observation session.

Each jar come with a 3.5 x magnifying glass hidden under the bug's wings on the lid, making this all the more interesting to use.

You can also buy the Early Science Explorers Set that includes a 4.5 x magnifying glass with a built in stand to prop the same up and 6" tweezers.


Since both sets are suggested for children aged 3 and older I would advise you supervise the younger ones if they insist on taking the tweezers too close to the live bug. You wouldn't want any bug fatalities!

For children aged 5 and older you can encourage them to create a science journal and have them draw each bug captured for observation. You can later google more information about the bug and have them list out characteristic features, what they eat and more. It will be fun to look through the journal at the end of summer and a great "Show n Tell" topic for the next school year.

Visit the Learning Resources site for more hands-on science projects you can do with your child.


Buy It-

You can buy the Big View Bug Jars (Set of 6) for 35.99 US$ and the Early Science Explorers Set for 6.99 US$.

My baby turns 1

*
A year ago, at 12.20pm, a little girl's prayer was answered and our then family of 3 was made complete with the arrival of our precious Bunny Boo.


It's amazing how 12 months can transform a tiny little baby into a little man with the cutest personality....
a little man who loves his big sister to bits, dotes on Daddy (He has been Daddy's Boy right from the womb), adores dogs (one of his 1st words was "dho"{dog}....not Mama!) , loves to serve bouncing balls (He has discovered he can"volleyball" serve all his soft balls and does it with such precision.), loves clapping to his favorite song, "The Joy Of The LORD" and swinging to The Go Fish Guys. (Every single one of their CDs calm him instantly!)

It's such a joy to see my baby blossom in such an awesome way and I'm so grateful for all the LORD has done in him and through him.
(Isn't it amazing how our children bless our lives in such a profound, impactful way?)


Happy 1st Birthday Bunny Boo!

You mean the world to us.

CLOSED: Chicken Soup for the Soul : My Cat's Life- 3 winners


* Click here to view the name(s) of the winner(s)*

The Buzz:

From kittenhood through the twilight years, our feline companions continually bring joy, love, and laughter to the lives of their "staff." Chicken Soup for the Soul : My Cat's Life is a collection of 101 new stories that captures the experience of living through the natural life cycle with our cats — from the laugh-out-loud antics of kittens and tear-your-hair-out escapades of teenage cats to the more mature adult years and final stages of life. Stories cover each age and stage with all the fun, frustrations, special bonds and routines involved. The book also holds a special chapter about grieving and recovery when our feline friends leave us.


E.B. Mommy's Report:

We're not cat people but who could say no when a straggly little kitten stands outside your apartment door mewing for helping. I still remember Hubby and Bunny girl running outdoors to scare trespassing neighborhood cats just to protect our tiny "pet" for 5 days. Memories of that week still puts a smile on my heart, thinking of how my loyal canine lovers do have a place for little "puddy tats"!

Chicken Soup for the Soul : My Cat's Life is a treat for anyone who loves cats and even for those who don't....that's the beauty of a Chicken Soup book. There's always a story you can relate to, one you can empathize with, one you can laugh along as you read and even some that will inspire....even if each story is only about cats!


Buy it:

Chicken Soup for the Soul : My Cat's Life retails for 14.95 US$ but you can buy it on Amazon for a reduced price at 10.17 US$.


Win it:


Three readers will have the opportunity to win Chicken Soup for the Soul : My Cat's Life

Gerber® Graduates® Breakfast Buddies™ (Review Only)


The Buzz:

Mornings are hectic – you’re pressed for time, there are lots of moving parts, and you want your child to get the most nutritious breakfast possible. A toddler’s discerning tastes can turn breakfast time into a struggle too.
With this in mind, the new Gerber® Graduates® Breakfast Buddies™ Hot Cereal– is a quick, easy, and more important, nutritious addition to your child’s complete breakfast!


Gerber® Graduates® Breakfast Buddies™ Hot Cereal contains a NutriProtect™ blend of B and E Vitamins, Iron and Zinc, for healthy growth and natural immune support. It’s also convenient to prepare and serve. The Gerber® Graduates® Breakfast Buddies™ Hot Cereal is a pack filled with whole-grain oats, real fruit and two grams of fiber per serving.

Gerber® Graduates® Breakfast Buddies™ Hot Cereals come in three varieties toddlers love -- apple cinnamon, peach, and cherry.


E.B. Mommy's Report:

Bunny Boo is an adventurous foodie. He LOVES food....as long as it's not in his bowl! I've learned the art of disguising food to look like it's supposed to be served to one of us and then get my little man to wallop it down.

When I received the
3 packs of Gerber® Graduates® Breakfast Buddies™ Hot Cereal I decided I'd try out the peach one first as I knew the apple would definitely get the big approval and the cherry would slide by.

This is made to serve as a quick fix but nutritious breakfast for your child. Now I have a block about heating the cereal in the packs even though it is proven to be safe (Blame me! I'm just paranoid about microwaving anything in plastic) so I heated up the same in a Corelle bowl and cooled it for about 3 minutes before giving Bunny Boo his first taster.


His initial reaction was not very encouraging but once I added a little milk to the mixture and gave it a quick whip in my blender, he really enjoyed every bit of his meal.
Between the three varieties Apple Cinnamon definitely won the taste palette's approval, followed by the peach and then, with great struggle, the cherry.

This is a great carry-on-the-go, healthy and wholesome choice for your little ones especially when you are on the go, especially with those summer travels coming up.
Fruit and oats....how can you go wrong with that?
