PBS Kids Peg + Cat: Out of this World DVD Review


COSMIC CAPERS AWAIT IN THE NEW PEG + CAT DVD
“OUT OF THIS WORLD”

Available on DVD from PBS Distribution

PBS KIDS Series PEG + CAT Helps Kids Build Math and Problem-Solving Skills

The run time of the new DVD “OUT OF THIS WORLD” is approximately 60 minutes.
The stories featured on the DVD include:

“The Doohickey Problem”
When their space ship is smashed, Peg and Cat must reassemble its variously shaped parts, and retrieve 16 stolen doohickeys.

“The Long Line Problem”
While waiting in a long line, Peg and Cat try to help Richard realize his dream of being first in line for the first time.

“Richard the Third”
At Richard’s family’s highly competitive annual picnic, Peg and Cat try to help Richard achieve his dream of not coming in third in every single event.

“The T-Ball Problem”
Peg’s t-ball team, the Mighty Nine, have no chance against a team of alien all-stars – unless Peg can use the aliens’ t-ball cards to predict where they’ll hit.

Each PEG + CAT adventure features a story in which Peg and Cat encounter an unexpected challenge that requires them to use math and problem-solving skills. While it teaches specific math lessons, the series also emphasizes resilience and perseverance.

When the nominations for the 43rd Annual Daytime Emmy® Awards were announced, PET + CAT was nominated for five awards, including: “Outstanding Pre-School Children’s Animated Program,” “Outstanding Writing in a Preschool Animated Program,” “Outstanding Directing in an Animated Program,” “Outstanding Music Direction and Composition,” and “Outstanding Original Song” for “Fairy Tale Wedding.” PEG + CAT won for “Outstanding Writing in a Preschool Animated Program” and “Outstanding Music Direction and Composition.”    

PEG + CAT was created by Jennifer Oxley (“Little Bill,” “The Wonder Pets!”) and Billy Aronson (“Rent,” “Postcards from Buster”) and is a production of The Fred Rogers Company. PEG + CAT, which made its broadcast debut in October 2013, airs daily on PBS KIDS (check local listings).

PEG + CAT is funded in part by the Corporation for Public Broadcasting (CPB) and the U.S. Department of Education through the Ready To Learn Initiative, a program that supports the development of innovative educational television and digital media targeted at preschool and early elementary schoolchildren and their families.

My Review:
My kids love the new Peg + Cat: Out of this World DVD! My kids just recently discovered Peg + Cat shows on PBS KIDS and have been watching them non stop. Peg + Cat: Out of this World helps kids build math and problem-solving skills which is something I can really appreciate as a homeschooling mom. I can't tell you how many times I've been trying to teach my kids something and they will say "oh like on Peg+Cat". Shows like Peg+Cat are extremely helpful for kids as they teach them valuable skills without them even knowing. I'm surprised at how much my kids actually retain from shows like Peg+Cat but I'm extremely thankful for them as they make my life as a homeschooling mom of 4 much easier. Peg + Cat: Out of this World DVD is filled with new adventures that are sure to entertain kids as well as educate them!

PBS KIDS Dinosaur Train: Under the Volcano DVD Review


NEW DINOSAUR TRAIN DVD “UNDER THE VOLCANO” IS ERUPTING WITH FUN-FILLED ADVENTURES

DVD Available from PBS Distribution

The Jim Henson Company’s DINOSAUR TRAIN Teaches Kids about
Life Science, Natural History, and Paleontology

DVD run time is approximately 120 minutes.
The stories included on this DVD are below.  

“Under the Volcano”
Buddy, Tiny, and Dad take the Dinosaur Train to see Old Smoky, the local volcano. It’s such a spectacular sight that they go back for the rest of the family, only to discover they’ve already gone to see the volcano! The merry mix-up concludes as the whole family meets up just in time to catch Old Smoky erupting.

“Old Reliable”
Mr. Pteranodon and Mr. Lambeosaurus take all the kids to see a field of geysers – holes in the ground that hot water shoots out from! At the same time, Mrs. Pteranodon and Mrs. Lambeosaurus are relaxing nearby in soothing pools of warm water, called hot springs. In the end, the kids love seeing the geysers and then joining the Moms in their hot springs, while accidentally surprising Mr. Conductor who is secretly trying to relax in his own private hot spring pool!

“Nature Art”
Mrs. Pteranodon cleans out the clutter from the family nest and the kids are amazed at the pile of stuff – leaves, flower petals, pieces of wood, and shells. Tiny stops Mom from throwing out all the stuff, determined that she and Buddy, Shiny, and Don will find a use for it all. And, they do – the Pteranodon kids have fun making nature art on the beach using the items from the nest!

“The Big Mud Pit”
There’s big trouble at the Big Pond when Larry Lambeosaurus gets stuck in a mud pit, and then Dad tries to get Larry out, and ends up getting stuck himself. Buddy and Leroy Lambeosaurus have to think quickly to pull their dads out before some big meat-eater finds them!

“Derek the Deinonychus”
Buddy, Tiny, and Mom visit a family of Deinonychus dinosaurs with large, sharp toe-claws. They meet a kid named Derek who uses his toe-claws to not only hunt with but to carve great art!

“Triceratops for Lunch”
Our Pteranodon family eats lunch with their friend Tank Triceratops and discovers that he and his family are all plant-eaters, with great leaf-eating teeth and giant appetites!

“The Forest Fire”
When a forest fire comes to woods not far from the family nest at Pteranodon Terrace, the family takes the Dinosaur Train to visit a nearby area where a fire has already been. The Conductor leads the kids on a Nature Tracker hike through the woods to see how new life is growing back – even after the forest fire’s devastation.

“Sunrise, Sunset”
Dad takes the Pteranodon kids on an overnight camping trip where they watch both a sunrise and sunset, learning that the sun rises in the east and sets in the west. The kids also find out more about nocturnal (night-active) animals, and diurnal (day-active) animals.

The five-time Emmy-nominated DINOSAUR TRAIN, created by Craig Bartlett (“Hey Arnold!”), is set in a whimsically realistic, prehistoric world of jungles, swamps, active volcanoes and oceans. Each day, DINOSAUR TRAIN helps kids ages 3 to 6 to apply scientific thinking as they discover new types of dinosaur species, compare and contrast dinosaurs to today’s creatures and embrace the living sciences of paleontology and natural science. DINOSAUR TRAIN airs weekdays on PBS KIDS (check local listings).

My Review:
PBS KIDS Dinosaur Train: Under the Volcano DVD is super fun! My girls love dinosaurs and my son is just now starting to pay attention to the TV so I imagine the love for dinosaurs will continue to grow. We've been watching Dinosaur Train on PBS KIDS for awhile now so my girls we're extremely excited to get this Dinosaur Train: Under the Volcano DVD to review. What I love most about Dinosaur Train: Under the Volcano is that it full of episodes to entertain the kiddos but they're not very long which makes them perfect for watching in the minivan in between errands. PBS KIDS Dinosaur Train: Under the Volcano DVD is incredibly entertaining and I highly recommend it!

You can order Dinosaur Train: Under the Volcano DVD at Shop PBSAmazon and other retailers.

Pic's Really Good Peanut Butter isn't Your Average Peanut Butter!


Living, as you do, in the spiritual home of peanut butter, you can, if you poke around a bit, find an extraordinary variety of peanut butters and peanut oil. So why on earth should you buy peanut butter from the other side of the world?

Because you won’t find any American peanut butters quite like ours. Despite the fact that our Hi-oleic nuts were developed in the US, they just can’t be grown in America. It’s something to do with cross pollination with ordinary peanuts that makes them revert within a season. The trick is to declare  your whole country Hi-oleic, which is what Australia and Argentina have done.
Argentinian Hi-oleics are, however, harvested younger than their Australian cousins, making them sweeter, but with a less intense flavour.

So, that’s why you won’t find any American peanut butter quite like ours. And hey, if you don’t find it the best tasting peanut butter you’ve ever eaten, we will give you your money back.


You should be able to buy these lovely 380g glass jars at any shop anywhere in the world, but you can't do it just yet. New Zealand's good, Australia and Singapore are well on the way, but you'd have a bit of a journey to get one at a shop in a lot of other places.

So until your corner store gets these babies on their shelf, you can get them from us. Unfortunately it will cost you a bit, but once you have one, you can show it to the folks who run your local shop, tell them why they need to get it, and promise to be their most regular customer. 

That way, when we get around to calling on them, they'll be pumped as anything and will order boxes and boxes. And then you, you clever thing, will have all the Pic's you need, right there at your corner store.

My Review:
Pic's Really Good Peanut Butter isn't Your Average Peanut Butter! Pic's Really Good Peanut Butter is made from Australian Hi-oleic nuts making it some of the best peanut butter around.  Due to the Australian Hi-oleic nuts Pic's Peanut Butter doesn't oxidise and never goes rancid. It's perfect for your peanut butter sandwiches, peanut butter cookies or just by the spoonful. I absolutely love how creamy and smooth their peanut butter is and you can definitely tell it isn't like most peanut butters on store shelves today. Pic's Really Good Peanut Butter tastes extremely fresh and is definitely worth trying!

Berenstain Bear Puzzles from New York Puzzle Company are a Hit with Kids!


 Founded in 2007 by two college pals, New York Puzzle Company started with a simple idea of making a puzzle of the iconic NYC subway map. Now it has grown to an expansive line of puzzles featuring fifteen licenses, including the witty New Yorker, vintage Babar and classic Peter Rabbit, just to name a few.

         Most of the magic happens in our main office in Brooklyn, New York, but as NYPC grew, we decided to spread our cheer to new markets across the globe. As a result, we now have a European satellite office located in sunny Saint Jean de Luz, France as our home base for our European distribution.

         We take care in choosing each image so that every puzzle is evocative with always the right level of challenge. NYPC puzzles’ vintage aesthetics and iconic imagery inspire a feeling that is at once nostalgic and fun. Not just challenging but also beautiful, each completed puzzle is gallery worthy; many of our customers love to frame their finished puzzles and hang them on their walls as works of art.

 Our puzzles range from 24 to 2000 pieces and are all made 100% in the USA out of recycled cardboard and printed with soy inks. Our durable, double-thick chip board and fully interlocking pieces assure that you are getting the best quality puzzle on the market.

         To find one of our many fine retailers throughout the US check out our store locator. It will help you to find a retail store near you. But please call the store before visiting – not every retailer carries the full range of NYPC puzzles.

         And as always - happy puzzling!

Our cotton flannel Ultimate Swaddle Blanket features beautiful designer colors and prints, and is lightweight, preshrunk, and allows air to flow naturally which reduces risk of overheating. SwaddleDesigns very lightweight Marquisette Swaddling Blanket is the finest quality open weave swaddling blanket with incredible softness due to the fine threads and high thread count.

Growth and Innovation
SwaddleDesigns continues to grow, innovate and invest. The SwaddleDesigns line includes many layette essentials including the zzZipMe Sack™ wearable blanket, stroller blankets, bibs, hooded towels, washcloths, a luxurious home collection with adult size blankets and throws, and a luscious certified organic cotton collection.

Our Team
SwaddleDesigns has grown based on the dedication of Lynette and Jeff Damir, a hard working husband and wife team, and their Seattle-based crew.

Tiny Animals

During the first year, after baby has transitioned from swaddling, experts recommend a wearable blanket for sleep. The zzZipMe Sack features a handy 2-way zipper that makes our sleep sack easy to use.

My Review:
Swaddle Designs Cotton Knit zzZipMe Sacks are a life saver! My son loved being swaddled but he became too big to be swaddled in a blanket. These Swaddle Designs Cotton Knit zzZipMe Sacks are the perfect next step in swaddling. They keep my son feeling bundled while allowing him use of his arms which is something that I think was starting to frustrate him when he was swaddled in a blanket. I love that Swaddle Designs Cotton Knit zzZipMe Sacks double as a blanket because he often would kick the blanket off of him at night leaving his legs out in the cold thus waking him up. With Swaddle Designs Cotton Knit zzZipMe Sacks he has begun to sleep much better somewhat like back in the day when he was swaddled in a blanket. The zzZipMe Sack features a handy 2-way zipper so it's extremely easy to use, especially at night during diaper changes. zzZipMe Sacks are the perfect wearable blanket for babies and the perfect solution for parents who need a little more sleep at night.
