NOODLEBUG - "On the Move"

Fall 2004 Home Video
Ages: 1 - 4 yrs.
VHS Price: $19.95
Review:
Aimed at the toddler set, this Noodlebug video incorporates "7 Essential Brain-Building Activities" as it discusses modes of movement, from simple body motions to riding trains. Through singing (in two languages), simple animation, and performances from real kids, the activities cover everything from sound development to an understanding of nutrition. Some segments feel somewhat rushed; more introductions and wrap-ups for each segment would have given kids time to catch up with what they're experiencing. Noodlebug comes from the publishers of the classic Cricket, Babybug, and Ladybug magazines, in which activities can be managed according to an individual child's attention span. Parents who purchase this DVD may want to go through the Story Selection option and watch the Parent Guide to maximize the disc's benefits.
