One of the most important things I have learned raising little ones is that a routine is the way to sanity in my household. We do the same routine when we get up, before we go to bed, we even have a routine for brushing our teeth. My son is going through a big adjustment this year, he started Pre-K 3 in ‘big boy school.’ One of the hardest things for him to adjust to was an earlier bedtime since there would be no sleeping late in the morning anymore.
The Pajanimals Meet the Pajanimals DVD is the perfect transition time from play time to bed time. I have always been a firm believer that children need quiet time before preparing for bed. The Pajanimals provide us with some time to sit down, calm down and relax as a family before laying down for the night. We can sing sweet songs, do a little dancing, and go on an imaginary adventure without leaving our living room.
Many of you may know Jim Henson’s Pajanimals from the 24 hour preschool channel but the Pajanimals have gotten rave reviews since their debut in the Fall of 2011 and just started their second season on Sprout. The new Meet the Pajanimals DVD consists of four stories including Blankie in the Laundry, Home Sweet Home, A Colorful Problem and Puppy Love.
What I love about the Pajanimals is the fact that your children are learning and don’t even realize it. Whether it be how to share or how to overcome a problem, your child will learn just by watching. The DVD includes everyone’s four favorite Pajanimals characters including CowBella, Apollo, Sweetpea Sue and Squacky. Unlike many other children’s shows there is a moral to each one of the Pajanimals stories. For instance in Blankie in the Laundry, Squacky realizes that he has to sleep all night without his favorite blanket. Through a magical adventure, the Pajanimals realized that snuggling with Pete the Dinosaur can also help Squacky fall asleep and that his blanket would be back the next day. In Puppy Love the Pajanimals are given a task of taking care of Fluffy the dog and learn how to take turns and be responsible for someone else, which is something we should be teaching all of our children.
If your child is a Pajanimals fan, they will love these downloadable games and activities! Pajanimals also recently released the new “Light in the Sky” app available for iPhone, iPad and iPod which is priced at $4.99 and is another wonderful way for your young ones to experience the Pajanimals up close and personal. Also, come this fall, Pajanimal Splush toys that will be available in 9’” and 15” so that your little one can take snuggle with their favorite Pajanimal wherever they go….think Stocking Stuffer!
