MY THOUGHTS

My youngest loves all things Thomas. This was the first time we saw this and we really enjoyed it. I really loved the way that new and old meshed together in this movie. We were introduced to some new characters, including the Earl of Sodor, two super fast engines names Connor and Caitlin, Millie the French engine, and and an old engine named Stephen who knows a lot about history. We were also introduced to new areas of the island, including the castle grounds and the abandoned mines below it. In the beginning of the movie we learn that the Earl of Sodor is returning to Sodor after a very long time away. He will be restoring the castle, and opening it for all to see. Restoring the castle will take a lot of work. As usual, our friends the engines are trying to be useful but things go a little awry and Stephen goes missing. All of the engines must work together to comb the island and find him. Once Thomas finds Stephen, he will have to work even harder to save his new friend from a certain disaster. The special features included on this DVD, especially the game and puzzles, were a big hit with my son as usual.This DVD is a must have for all Thomas & Friends fans.

Sesame Street Being Brave DVD

Sesame Street: Being Brave

  • DVD Release Date: October 1, 2013
  • Rated: Unrated
  • Number of discs: 1
  • Language: English
  • Studio: Sesame Street
  • ASIN: B00EBBGKOY
  • SRP $14.98

Bonus features:

  • “A Celebration of Me, Grover!” full-length video
  • Grover Talks About The Dark
  • Going To The Doctor
  • Cousin Bear Is Afraid Of Monsters

Ever feel afraid of a booming thunderstorm? How about those big bumble bees? Grover knows preschoolers have lots of the same kinds of fears. Sesame Street: Being Brave is packed with stories to help every preschooler feel brave and fight their fears. The curriculum focuses on helping children use strategies to overcome obstacles and face common fears. Children are encouraged to recognize and label their feelings and use different strategies to help manage strong emotions, such as feeling worried and scared. The home video also focuses on empathy, taking the perspective of others and understanding the feelings of others (reading facial cues and body language). To help build children’s vocabulary, words such as pollinate, hexagon, and veterinarian are introduced. Finally, the home video touches upon math skills such as counting and geometric shapes. But even monsters get scared sometimes, Grover thinks there is a monster at the end of the DVD and doesn’t want you to watch! If you are brave enough to keep watching get ready for some of Sesame Street’s most classic lessons complete with a bonus full-length Sesame Street video “Celebration of Me, Grover.” Also included is a glow-in-the-dark sticker sheet for keeping the night fun and cheerful.

My youngest isn’t afraid of much. He really hates being at the dentist, that’s about the closest thing he has to a fear. I remember when I was a child I knew  other children that were afraid of things like thunder and lightning. And being afraid of the dark. I know those are all pretty common fears for children. The newest Sesame Street DVD might help reassure young children about their fears, by showing them that some of their characters have fears too.  This DVD would be great for both old and new Sesame Street fans.

MY THOUGHTS

Sofia The First is about a young girl, Sofia, who becomes a princess when her mother marries the king of Enchancia. This DVD contains five episodes from the first season. Sofia is adjusting to being a princess and is learning to adjust to life in the castle. Sofia now goes to a new school, and she needs to make friends with her new step-sister and new school friends, as well as learn how princesses behave. Sofia gets lots of help from Fauna, Flora, and Merryweather, the fairies from Sleeping Beauty. Sofia is a nice girl at heart and she has to learn to be true to herself. There’s plenty of songs and dancing throughout the DVD. Sofia is a sweet character, I love the way she talks to the animals. If you have a little Disney Princess fan, I won’t ruin the story but will tell you that appearances are made by Cinderella and Princess Jasmine.

Here are two clips from the DVD.

DVD REVIEW – Sesame Street: C Is For Cooking

The product featured was provided free of cost to me for the sole purpose of product testing and review. Please note that any personal opinions reflected in this post are my own and have not been influenced by the sponsor in any way.

Sesame Street: C Is For Cooking DVD

Sesame Street: C Is for Cooking

  • DVD Release Date: September 10, 2013
  • Run Time: 120 minutes
  • Number of discs: 1
  • Language: English
  • Studio: Sesame Street
  • SRP $14.98

Sesame Street: C is for Cooking is an exciting new DVD featuring the hilarious Cookie Monster and lovable Elmo in the kitchen. Sesame Street C is for Cooking provides a great opportunity for children to learn about healthy foods, the excitement and enjoyment of trying new foods and the difference between foods that are okay to eat some of the time and foods that are okay to eat all of the time. This home video also promotes math skills, such as counting, addition and measuring, as well cognitive reasoning skills such as following the steps of a recipe. Kids will discover how to make sushi, bread and oatmeal cookies, and then, join Murray as he takes a trip to cooking school. Elmo, Cookie Monster, Big Bird and the rest of your Sesame Street friends help children learn all about healthy eating through simple yet scrumptious recipes. And, just when you think the fun is over, Elmo teaches kids how to make refreshing fruit juice popsicles!

If you want to keep enjoying these recipes time after time, Sesame Street: C is for Cooking, includes a special bonus adventure, “Elmo’s Magic Cookbook” and a booklet of 6 delicious dishes inside. Sesame Street: C is for Cooking uses catchy songs and cooking tutorials as a means to teach children about different types of food, options for healthy eating and friendship! From the beloved classic tune “C is for Cookie” and a handful of cooking tips from your favorite Sesame Street friends, your child will be helping out in the kitchen in no time! So get out your pots and pans, put on your best apron and join all the chefs of Sesame Street in the kitchen!

MY THOUGHTS

We enjoyed this DVD. The DVD centers on food and cooking. I love Cookie Monster (and cookies) as much as the next girl, but I thought it was fun to see the characters learning about and promoting vegetables. Sure, they still mentioned cookies, but they also mentioned other foods like oatmeal and bread. I liked that the DVD explained what a recipe is. I thought the “eat your colors game” was a fun way to help introduce and reinforce the concept of eating different foods from different food groups. My favorite part, by far, was when Big Bird was making cookies and he called the dough “gunk”, and we learned that the recipe would yield “a nestful” of cookies. This video would be a great for any Sesame Street fan.

I’m the mom of a very boy-ish boy. My 17-month-old is obsessed with all things cars, trucks, and any other type of transport you can think of. We had yet to see any Chuck & Friends episodes, but I have read some things about them and the show seemed adorable.

And it is. The look and personalities of the vehicles remind me of Disney’s Cars, yet they are unique and adorable in their own ways. They are cute-sy enough to make a mom happy, yet boyish enough to keep a boy happy! The best thing is that Chuck and his friends teach important lessons to positively enforce good morals and behavior. Adorable cars and important lessons to be learned? That’s a win-win for our family!
