it’s Hip Hop Baby! Review & GIVE-A-WAY

"It's Hip Hop, Baby!" is a new children's DVD series for ages 2 to 6. These videos educate toddlers and preschoolers with fun child-friendly hip hop music. Children and even babies will want to move and groove and dance to the fun rhythms and beats in this educational DVD. There are several learning tools to help children of all ages and ethnic backgrounds learn key developmental concepts at an early age” (taken from website)

I was given the chance to preview Hip Hop baby myself, and I was surprised how my babies loved it.

My favorite aspect was the music! I have always loved music and know and understand what  a great tool it is for learning, children and adults alike. In Hip Hop baby, they use music to teach with songs such as “Hip Hop Simon Says” and “If you’re Happy and you Know It".” There are also songs with animal noises, numbers, and more.

Also, I valued the benefit of real pictures of animals and kids in the video. I do not want my children to sit in front of the TV day in and day out, especially as young as they are. However, Hip Hop Baby promotes learning and it my children were able to interact with it! (a funny note: when the movie was over the kids said “bye” and Alexis waved back to the kids…I had to laugh!)

Neil Sedaka "Waking up is hard to do" is a real cute song for kids, check it out. The Hip-Hop Baby is toe tapping for an oldie like me too! Nanu-Grammy-Bibi

What I love about it is the education. Kids remember things when they are sung with a catchy beat!
