LET'S PLAY SCHOOL: DVD
The first interactive DVD to be released for preschool children in Australia, the 50 minute video invites us into a fun-filled day at Baby Bop's school with singing, reading and bouncing into gym class. Intended to make learning fun for toddlers and preschoolers, children can watch the video, interact with songs like The Alphabet Parade, I Love to Read, and The Shape Song (lyrics included), and interact in many different ways.
"Bad weather? Kids bored? Are you pulling your hair out?
Barney's Let's Play School on DVD may help restore your sanity.
and bright, Barney and friends are as cute as punch and will make
you smile, whatever your age. For those who may not know, Barney
is a six foot purple Tyrannosaurus Rex - child-like, energetic,
fun-loving and very friendly. Baby Bop, one of Barney's friends,
is a three year old Triceratops with a lively imagination, She
portrays activities and behaviour typical of 2-3 year olds, and
is often helped by big brother BJ (an active seven year old
Protoceratops), who loves to ride his scooter and play with
friends (representing brother/sister relationships). There are
five DVD Rom games developed exclusively for this release; my
favourite is Connect the Dots – a new medium for an old
favourite. The 32 page electronic book offers a choice of reading
with your child, or let Barney do the honours. The songs from the
audio release can be played continuously or individually. You can
select your favourite scenes with simple navigation, from 12
chapters and visit behind the scenes with Barney's cast and crew.
There's even a Spanish language track and subtitles for the
hearing impaired. Let's Play School is delightful entertainment,
to keep little minds busy at home. Repeatedley."
