Win Wisharoo Park, an educational and adorable prize pack!

My son has a new favorite DVD- Wisharoo Park!  If you have not heard of it (or if you have, but have not watched it yet), let me tell you how very much he enjoys it, and why I think you will, too.  It became a fast favorite, and he carried around the little pamphlet that it came with for days.  I love it’s message, and the characters are lovable, sweet, and adorable.  I hope they come out with stuffed animals soon, my son would just love them, LOL.  Of course, I had to bring it to the Pre-School to see what the kids had to say.  The ages of the kids here are 2.5 to 6.  Wisharoo Park was create for children aged 3 to 6, so the majority of the kids fall right within that demographic.

Originally airing as a TV series on PBS, Wisharoo Park has now launched as a multi-media program, with a website, Facebook Page, and DVDs.  This technology based program and curriculum promotes positive self image and self esteem, and helps children feel good about themselves while discovering and understanding their personal strengths. 
Wisharoo Park’s online community updates weekly with new activities, videos, games, and a whole lot more.  There you can also interact with the aforementioned adorable buddies of Wisharoo Park.  You can also look forward to an iPad app which is designed to complement your child’s learning and preschool curriculum, coming soon. 

I am so excited to see what else Wisharoo Park comes up with, because I know that I love it, my kids love it, and the kids in the preschool love it as well.  It is fun to use as a “break” or on a rainy day (or for wintry snowy days) to break up time when we can’t get outside and play.  While we often do yoga, kids dance and exercise videos, and other physical activity- it’s nice to have options that are educational, and are great for social and personal learning as well.  For me- whatever gives kids a love of learning, and confidence in themselves (which is really half the battle, isn’t it?) is a great choice and a good buy.  I hope you check out Wisharoo Park soon, it is super-Have Sippy recommended!

Win Roary the Racing Car DVD

 This is such an adorable DVD- and has become my son’s #1 favorite.  I didn’t have any idea what this was until I saw this DVD, but it is really cute, and they have a fun (and inexpensive) line of toys as well.  Roary is a fun and friendly racecar who zooms about, of course, but the focus here is on friendship and helping others.  My son loves, loves, loves this DVD- and I am bummed because we don’t get this show on TV here, but we download it via the internet now.  YAY for technology! 

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION
Get revved up for the red hot preschool star, Roary the Racing Car™, speeding
onto his very first DVD, Digital Download and On Demand release June 7, 2011
from Lionsgate and HIT Entertainment. You have a front row ticket to Silver Hatch
Racetrack to delight in the high-speed adventures of Roary™, Dragga, Zizzy
and Lugga, along with human pals Big Chris, Marsha, Officer Pete…and even
curmudgeonly Mr. Carburettor, as they drive through lessons in doing the right thing,
staying positive, helping others, staying safe, problem solving and friendship. With
boundless enthusiasm and a get-up-and-go attitude, Roary is ready to race right into
your heart!
Narrated in the U.S. by Indy and NASCAR racer Sam Hornish Jr., Roary the Racing

Page 1 of 3

Car launched on Sprout® in October of 2008, airing in 54MM homes 7 days a week, but
the premiere DVD has a treat for their fans featuring episodes never-before-seen on
TV! This red hot engine has performed notably well on Sprout on Demand, on average
ranking in the network’s top 10 programs requested. Roary has been cross promoted
on 2MM preschool DVDs, and all-new Roary toys are now available exclusively at
Toys “R” Us!

SYNOPSIS
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!

Episodes include:
• “Stars and Cars” – Big Chris has been invited to appear on a TV karaoke show. The
cars are worried that the success will go to his head and he’ll leave Silver Hatch
forever.
• “Rusty Takes a Trip” – Rusty is fed up with sitting in one place. Roary and the other
cars plan a special surprise for him, but Rusty soon decides he prefers life without
wheels!
• “Big Chris Babysits” – Big Chris has been left in charge of the track and keeping an
eye on Roary and Zizzy. But is Big Chris the one that needs looking after?
• “Roary Gets it Wrong” – Farmer Green has given Roary lots of packages to deliver
to everybody around the track. How will Roary remember which package belongs to
who?
• “Computer Calamity” – Mr. Carburettor has decided that Silver Hatch needs to
move with the times and do everything with computers. But Big Chris is a traditional
mechanic, so what happens when the two disagree?
• “Big Chris Forgets” – It’s Marsha’s birthday, and Big Chris is in charge of organizing
a surprise for her. Why does everybody keep reminding him what he needs to do?
He wouldn’t forget anything… would he?!

Cars 2

Hey all- Sorry- I forgot to hit the “post” button- this was sitting in my box, LOL!

We just saw the Cars 2 screening, from Disney.  While I loved the movie, and liked it more, in fact, then Cars (the original)- I found it a bit violent for the kids.  It was like “James Bond” meets cartoon kid’s movie.  The problem being- while it was more entertaining for the adult in me- the mommy in me was less then then thrilled with the violent aspects.  Car torture?  Killing Cars?  LOTS of explosions, ganging up on cars to beat them up or worse, electrocuting cars, blowing them up- this was aimed at small kids, right?  NOT thrilled.  A lot of people think there should have been more Lightning McQueen.  I don’t.  I liked the Mater story line- Lightning had his movie already.  I just thought that it was a bit much for the young kids.  You know- the ones who the movie is aimed at.  No thank you.  I will let Little watch the old Cars movie any time- but I won’t let him watch this one again.  If we had a second car, I would have taken him home during this one.  I was really quite annoyed that killing and torture was deemed to be a G movie.  The cars in the movie are supposed to be living things- very much like people, with thoughts, feelings, etc.  Not hunks of metal like what we drive around in.  So think of it this way- would you want your kids to see a movie where PEOPLE were tortured and killed, chased down, electrocuted?  Not me.  The cars are supposed to be representative of people- the cars are the society.  So to show all that to children is very uncouth in my book.  Thanks anyway. 
My son loves the toys, he loves the play sets, he loves all things to do with Cars- and now Cars 2.  But no way in the world will I let him see that movie again, and that will show me to trust a movie rating.  I will make sure I see all movies before he does, from now on.  Good grief!
He can certainly play with the toys, he loves them!  And again- Cars 1 was a great, cute movie about redemption and treating others well, not being mean, showing respect, helping out, etc.  I would think before going to see this one.  Sorry ya’ll. 

Disclosure- we got to see this movie for free in order to review it.  These are my opinions, yours may differ.

Get Fit America for Kids LIVE Contest- Win the DVD

I love this DVD for the kids at the Pre-K and in my own home- it’s great to have a physical activity to do on rainy days, in the winter, and just to relax and unwind together.  Because sometimes?  I just don’t want to go down the slide!  LOL  I have used this DVD at least weekly since I got it, and it has been a “go to” for me at the Pre-School.  Can I tell you?  When there is 20+ kids that need to go outside and can’t, this is a real saving grace for me! 

Kids can learn some great heath and fitness ideas from this DVD, get on the path to staying active and healthy, and start out on the right foot- being active- or for those kids who need some motivation?  They can do so with the caring guidance of Mom/Dad and the instructor Scott Cole.   And you can learn with your child- this is a great opportunity for a  family activity, so join in! 
My kids and class are aged 2.5 – 7, and only the 2 year olds were unable to follow.  But they had fun trying, and I think it is a great example for them to see.  Plus, they will learn the “moves” and exercises in time- plus it is a great way to start them out on the right foot- by watching older siblings, and mom and dad!  (Plus- Scott makes it fun- so your kids won’t dislike doing this!)
Get Fit America for Kids LIVE features active school assemblies with children of all ages (K-2nd, 3rd-5th, and 6th-8th) joyfully participating in Scott’s proven program of Yoga, Tai Chi, Cardio, Strength, Partnered Trust-Building, and Meditation, along with valuable educational tips and insights for each age group on HOW to motivate, teach, and MOVE children with mind/body exercise.

NOTE: Get Fit America for Kids LIVE DVD is an educational tool for adults, and the NAPPA-AWARD-Winning Get Fit America for Kids Workout DVD is designed for kids to use as a workout. Together, the Get Fit America for Kids Program is a mindful solution to help prevent ADHD, improve focus, restore social skills, and inspire overall health and vitality for children of all ages, while educating adults on HOW TO implement mindful exercise into schools, fitness centers, recreational facilities, and more!!!

“Get Fit America for Kids is designed for ALL children. It is non-competitive, joyful, mindful, and FUN. See for yourself, and let’s all work to keep America’s children happy, healthy, creative, and conscious.”—Scott Cole

The Royal Wedding – William & Catherine (available on DVD)

Can you ever get enough?  for me- I know I can’t! 
As a history buff, I just can’t get enough Will and Kate, and I am so thrilled to see that the BBC has produced and made available this fabulous DVD, The Royal Wedding – William & Catherine, available as of 5/24.   I was so, so excited to see it, and I totally DVRed the whole thing, from start to finish, since I was going to be working that day.  But what what a fabulous memento, a keepsake forever for the wedding of the century!
I was so excited to see it, and I have to say that when I finally did, I did cry, they looked so happy.  I hate when I do things like that, LOL.  (BAH, acting like such a hot mess!)
Did you see that they went into the back of the cathedral, to sign their names into the marriage log book?  Where all the other kings and queens had signed their names?  AHHHH, can you imagine?!!  That’s wild- I just want to see it!  Forever- your name in history. 
There is also a great pre-wedding glimpse into their lives, into their engagement and dating, which we as Americans may not know much about.  It lets us get to know a bit about Kate who becomes Catherine, and reminds us of Prince William’s life. (Kate and I have the same birthday- fun fact- same date, exactly, lol.
Of course, I don’t wear a size 2 or marry a crowned price, but hey- I will take what I can get, haha.)

“Join HRH Prince William and Catherine Middleton at Westminster Abbey as they celebrate the momentous occasion of their marriage. Relive and treasure their special day with this souvenir DVD, containing two hours of coverage from the BBC.
This wonderful keepsake will capture all the pomp and pageantry of the historic occasion like no other memento. The DVD will include the complete ceremony plus highlights from the official BBC pre- and post-wedding coverage, and the bonus program, “William and Kate: A Royal Engagement,” presenting the story of William and Kate’s relationship via interviews with colleagues, friends and family. Lovers of the crown will want to own this special, commemorative DVD of this most delightful of events, the Royal Wedding of Prince William and Catherine Middleton.”
You can buy this fab DVD for the  AMAZING price of $7.98.  WHAT?  Really- that’s a total bargain.  Check it out, this is a fabulous buy that you will treasure for years to come.  Forever! 
Happy History!  🙂
