Juno Baby: Award-Winning Early Music Education for Young Minds- DVD Review and Giveaway

The great philosopher Plato once said that music “is a more potent instrument than any other for education”. Recent research has proven that music is vital in all areas of a young child's development- academically, emotionally, physically and spiritually.

Both my boys- four year old Gabriel and almost three year old Jaden love music. I'm all for introducing them to the many different ways they learn new things. At the same time, I also know that not every new kids' product that comes out in the market delivers what it's suppose to. That said, I am quite cautious when choosing things to give my children- including music and media products.

Recently, we received three new DVDs (Way To Go, Juno!, Juno's Rhythm Adventure and Indie's Great Teddy Bear Hunt) and the Orchestral Edition CD from Juno Baby for review. At first, I thought the DVDs might be too juvenile for my quite already advanced learner, Gabriel. At four years old, he can already read a full book, can write and spell his name, knows all the colors, shapes, animals, names of everyday things, can count numbers up to 100- you name it. Recently, he also started saying some Spanish words and numbers. His teachers are amazed and has commented that he has a brain of a seven year old. But surprisingly, Gabriel sat back and watched each DVD episode of Juno Baby with much enthusiasm. My other three year old son Jaden definitely love the cute puppets and the music too! I'm not surprised why Juno Baby is highly-acclaimed and has received many awards including the Parent’s Choice Award and Dr. Toy’s Best 100 Products and Top 10 Video List.

Juno Baby is an Emmy Award-winning product line born from the original orchestral compositions of acclaimed composer and company founder, Dr. Belinda Takahashi who firmly believes that "by surrounding young children with beautiful music, we can engage their minds, inspire them artistically, and nurture them emotionally".

Juno Baby music and media products are created for children from 18 months to 4.5 years old. Check out these products and more online at: www.junobaby.com

Juno Baby also offers comfy tees for little boys and girls ages 6 months-4T and are made of ultra soft 100% cotton. My boys look adorable in the Juno T-Shirt and the Murphy T-Shirt.
