Ok, so before I even start this review I have to tell you that while we were watching this my husband said, "I've never seen her try and get the characters out of the t.v." She was so enthralled with these characters that she was reaching for them! It was adorable!
Here is a little bit about this DVD:
Cinema Werx LLC is the company that produces Dwizzle Dee™, an award-winning DVD video series geared to entertain and educate preschool aged children. The series teaches fundamentals like colors, sizes, shapes with the help of it's unique characters, Lenny, Penny, Gifford & Ms. Ashley. The use of repetition, imagination, songs and fun problem solving help reinforce these fundamentals.
I love exposing my daughter to education things as often as possible. While I understand that this DVD is geared toward preschool age children, as a teacher I feel that it's never too early to expose her to fun and educational programming. This DVD is everything that I am looking for!
The characters are adorable and they kept my daughters attention. They speak so that children can understand them (slowly and with a limited vocabulary). The music is upbeat and a lot of the rhythms are familiar. I also love that they encourage imaginary play and keep the concepts simple.When your child is the appropriate age, they will find opportunities to interact along with the story (answering questions, pretending to be flowers, buzzing like bees).
This DVD is also a great way to start introducing the idea of school to your children. The story starts in a classroom and gives a good picture of what school will be like for the children. You could use this DVD to start getting your preschooler excited for school and all the new things they will learn with their teacher and classmates!
I will happily be putting this DVD on for my daughter in the hopes that she will begin to pick up on some of the great concepts! The relationships being made between colors (apples are red, so are firetrucks) and sizes (imagine being as small as a bee) are major skills being presented in a fun way. You should definitely check out this great DVD! You can also check out Dwizzle Dee on Facebook.
*If you have a child who loves music as much as mine, you will be happy to know that they have a sing along option on the DVD!
