I have been wanting to try yoga for a long time as I have heard that the health benefits are great for mind and body and I figured that no time better then the present for getting myself and my little one into a routine.

When I got the chance to do a product review for Playful Planet, I jumped at the chance.  Playful planet is a kids yoga DVD that covers the ages of 3- 8 and an "older mom."

Playful planet was created by a mom for kids and for parents and gives a lot of hands-on experiences.

Product Description

Winner of Parent’s Choice Approved, Mom’s Choice Gold, Dr. Toy’s Best Green Product and Creative Child Magazine “Preferred Choice” in the Environmentally Friendly Category.

Storyland Yoga is a fun-filled adventure that infuses children with an eco-conscious message. Two unique stories, “Save the Whale” and “Condor Trek” engage a child’s imagination through storytelling. Kid’s learn yoga postures by becoming part of the story and imitating animals. Yoga is great exercise and helps to calm children giving them greater focus and increased clarity. Storyland Yoga is equally fun for parents and family members who can benefit from yoga, while enjoying ‘organic time’ with their children.

Ages 3 – 8

Condor Trek Run Time: 23:18

Save the Whale Run Time: 18:30

Produced by Playful Planet:

‘Empowering Kids and Their Families to Be Healthy and Live Sustainably.’

100% Recycled Packaging

My thoughts and review:

To start with, my little one is just 3 years of age so to keep her focused on something for longer then 5 minutes takes a lot of work.  But this was easy, maybe to easy, but easy none-the-less.

We joined Ahmed Fahmy on the Condor Trek which took just about 24 minutes.  My little one loved it.  It kept her attention, and the yoga poses were easy for her to follow and duplicate.

Here is one where she was doing the bicycle to go to the river and to get in her rowboat to head on over to take the Condor eggs back to their parents.

Then this was her rowing her rowboat across the river and dodging alligators.

What is nice about the DVD and the yoga poses as the kids are listening and following a story.  Ahmed tells a great story and it kept her fascinated all the way through it.

She loved the yoga poses and wanted to play the DVD again.

I like the ease of following along for the little ones and the fact that they hear a story and have fun right along with it.  They are getting exercise but are having so much fun that they don't realize it. 

Overall, I definitely give this kids yoga DVD an A+, and a must have for parents/caretakers with children age 3-8.

Mr. BIggs In The City Book Review And Giveaway

I was given the wonderful opportunity to do a book review of Mr. Biggs In The City written and illustrated by Kevin Bloomfield.

The book follows Mr. Biggs as he heads to the big city to seek adventure and fun.  See, Mr. Biggs is kind of lonely in the forest and one day he climbs this big old tree and he is able to see the city.  To Mr. Biggs, the city looks fun and he really wants to visit there so off he goes on his adventure.

You get to follow along as Mr. Biggs tries his hand at skateboarding, ballet, being a musician and so much more.

Will Mr. Biggs find friends and fun in the big city?

Well, you will just have to read this book to find out.

My opinion on this book is: I loved it.  The illustrations and the story are wonderful.  I have had the book for a couple of days now and we have read it 5 times.  My little girl loves this book, and it is now her favorite one to read before bed, and she is even willing to go and get comfortable on the bed and take a nap if I read to her first.  She giggled at the illustrations and followed along wonderfully with the story. 

Per the summary the audience of this book is Pre-K to 3rd grade and my little one who is Pre-K age was easily able to follow along and not get bored.  The pictures jumped right off the page at her and kept her interested throughout the whole book.

I know that this is a book that she is going to treasure for a long time to come.

Right now you can purchase the book on Amazon for about $12.71.

But we are here to give you the opportunity to win your own autographed copy of the book.
