The characters "were just having fun and being silly together." Kids ages 2-6 on our jury were all moving their bodies to the music by the end of the DVD. It held all of their interest and immediately motivated several of them to dance along. Even the oldest children, who seemed resistant to watch a "little kid's show," were engaged and wiggling in their seats. The youngest of the kids all jumped up and danced instantly to the music.
This title is a collection of fun and engaging music videos that children could view one at a time or all together. The songs are attractive for young children and the lead singer is charismatic. Children feel comfortable with Meredith LeVande, as they join her on different adventures exploring the world around them. Visuals are vivid and maintain a brisk pace that will hold interest while communicating the main theme of each song in an age-appropriate manner. Employs a good dose of humor and silliness. DVD offers captions for older children to read along. Songs approach topics such as "opposites," "China Town" and "saying Good Night." Though the style varies a bit in each song, the musical signature is strong throughout. Lead singer, Meredith LeVande, maintains a visual presence during the live-action segments, and as an animated avatar in the cartoon segments.
From jumping high to exploring American cities, each of these music videos has an educational message that engages the imagination and encourages creativity.
