I received a copy of the DVDs mentioned for the purpose of review. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Giveaway provided by sponsor.
As you all know by now, I have a few young children in my home. Very quickly Jemma is becoming more interested in her favorite Nickelodeon and other childhood characters. There are times she is forced to sit due to her breathing and television is a great distraction for her (and I) during these times. Joley is very interested in all things revolving around learning so any movies that gear towards that are in her sight right now.
Today I have a few DVDs I want to share with you that my girls have really loved. We brought them on our trip to Chicago with us and they watched them both over and over. Joley has them on in her room often and has learned all the songs and fun story lines that go with them.
The first DVD is Dora the Explorer: Dora’s Musical School Days
Don’t miss a musical adventure to help Boots’ teacher get to school on time to greet her students with a song, learn new Spanish words, cheer up the Grumpy Old Troll and help Dora and Boots deliver mail!
Joley has really enjoyed this because she feels so big learning Spanish words like her brother. Johnny has been learning Spanish since Kindergarten so he has been helping her remember them. Unfortunately, this movie has brought about many questions about when she starts school (not for another year) but it has also opened up a way for me to get her interested in learning new things in preparation for her entry into school.
The second DVD is Blue’s Clues: Blue’s Big Musical Movie
Steve, Blue and all their friends are putting on a big backyard music show in their first ever feature length movie! Everyone will be there, including Blue’s brand-new neighbor, the new cat in town, Periwinkle. Steve and Blue really need preschoolers’ help to get the show underway by keeping a checklist, assembling the stage and costumes, writing a song with G-Clef (voiced by Ray Charles) and of course, playing Blue’s Clues to find Blue a singing partner. Even the shy Sidetable Drawer needs help getting into the act!
Jemma really loves this DVD. I think it is Blue that makes her interested most because I remember Joley really loving Blue’s Clues as a younger girl. This DVD has a lot of fun music in it and truly didn’t drive me bananas the way some children’s movies do. I even liked the music videos that are included in the DVD.
Both of these can be found together for the SRP of $16.99. Be sure to look for it wherever DVDs are sold!
I have one copy of this double feature DVD set to give away. You need to live in the continental US to enter.
