Baby Genius Review and Giveaway

My girls love to play with their toys and let me tell you they have a bunch of them!  Little one only being 19 months old has so many toys that she has three toy boxes full in her room and they are spilling out into the living room, of course she brings them out here.  There are a few that are her favorites like her Tickle Me Elmo and her little racing cars.  There are also times that she doesn't want to play with her toys and will sneak into her older sister's room to go grab something to play with when I'm not looking, like her keyboard or guitar.  There is a new toy that little one received recently that she absolutely loves from Baby Genius.  I 'm sure a lot of you if not all of you have heard of Baby Genius and I was really excited when I was contacted by them to do a review of their great and innovative products for kids.  I was sent three items for review:

Baby Genius All In One Musical Band- Little one absolutely loves this toy!  It includes a pair of Tempo maracas, a Frankie character tambourine, a Vinko character flute, and a drum with two very colorful and contoured drumsticks.  Little musicians like mine can play their favorite instrument while marching along.  When they are done playing, they can store all of the instruments inside the drum for easy storage and even easier clean up.  Little one has been playing with this daily ever since she received it.  She loves to play the flute and we often call her our little budding musician.  She also loves to shake her little maracas all over the house, at least I know when she is coming down the hallway!  Sometimes she like to put a few other toys inside the drum, but for the most part she keeps all of her instruments together.  This is a truly great toy not only for the development of our children, but to teach them the importance of music as well.  I love that this toy doesn't have batteries to replace and little one can be entertained for hours just by playing her music.  This is part of the new Baby Genius Developmental Toy Line that is geared from 6 months to 2+ years and features all of the great Baby Genius characters that your children have grown to love.  They really have a wonderful selection of toys from Bath Buddies that are great for funtime play in the tub, to Sort and Stack to even cute brooms and vacuums, these toys are a wonderful addition to your children's playtime.  These are available in stores such as Walmart or walmart.com so be sure to check the Baby Genius site for available retailers.

Favorite Toddler Tunes CD- Baby Genius has more than just toys, they have a wonderful and extremely educational line of music CD's for our children.  I received the Favorite Toddler Tunes 2 CD Set for review and little one absolutely loves this CD.  It features some well known songs such as If You're Happy and You Know It, Hush Little Baby, Skip To My Lou, Mary Had a Little Lamb and so many more.  There are 40 Happytime Songs and All Time Favorites loaded onto this 2 CDs, over 1 hour of music and fun!  Little one is starting to learn some songs, If You're Happy and You Know It is one of her favorites.  She has the clapping part down and that is it so far, but she has fun with it.  I put these CDs in for her to listen to and she just loves dancing and twirling around the room.  These songs are great new arrangements on the classics sung by kids and adults to introduce music and movement into a child's exciting world.  These CDs are perfect for teaching colors, the alphabet and will quickly become a favorite of your little toddlers like mine.

Animal Adventures DVD- My little one loves to watch Sesame Street, The Wiggles, and Handy Manny a lot, those are a few of the shows that actually hold her interest for more than 5 seconds.  It's hard to believe how many great and educational shows that there are actually on TV nowadays.  Baby Genius offers some really wonderful DVDs that are sure to hold your child's interest.  We were sent the Animal Adventures DVD for review and this is really a fun DVD to watch even for me.  Little one is really starting to get into animals, so I knew she would really enjoy this one.  This DVD was filmed exclusively at the San Diego Zoo's Wild Animal Park and is over 1 1/2  hours of fun.  Of course, with little one being so young, she didn't watch this all at once, it took a couple of times, but we finally got through it.  From deer, to birds, to giraffes and monkeys and so much more, your child will enjoy seeing all of the animals while also enjoying all of the great Baby Genius characters and songs.  It also includes a bonus CD and is perfect for ages 0-36 months.  This is just one in a great line of educational DVDs that your kids will love.

Baby Genius was established in 2006 and is committed to providing music-based products that are entertaining, educational, and beneficial to the well being of babies and young children.  They strive to exceed consumer expectations for quality and value and believe in a child's world music definitely makes a difference!  In addition to Baby Genius, Pacific Entertainment produces a variety of CDs under the "Wee Worship" brand and licenses the "Guess How Much I Love You", "Precious Moments" and "The Snowman" brands for audio compilations.  Multi award winning Baby Genius is the premiere musical edu-tainment brand of CDs and DVDs as well as toys and some books for infants and toddlers offering child-friendly, quality content along with play patterns that nurture, stimulate, and prepare children for early socialization and education.  Since it's actual launch in 1999, Baby Genius has scored award-winning success boasting sales of millions of DVDs and CDs and garnered more than one million views per month on Comcast and Cox cable in 2008.  The Baby Genius brands are available at most major retailers and has international exposure in over 40 countries.

There is a growing list of positive effects of music on children.  Music helps promote motor skills and build vocabularies and speech patterns with the repetition of familiar nursery rhyme songs.  Music stimulates and encourages creativity, builds self-esteem, arouses curiosity, nurtures confidence, and trains little brains.  With the help of music, parents who actively participate in the lives of their child develop a special bond with their little ones at an early age.  Sharing the joy of music with children create happy memories and family traditions that last a lifetime.
