Eebee's Adventures - Review and Giveaway

Not all parents believe that kids should watch television and movies, but I believe that there is a time and place for everything, including letting kids have t.v. time!  We have a portable DVD player that has come in handy MANY times with our daughter.  I do monitor what she watches closely.  I prefer that she watch more educational shows/movies than others that are purely for entertainment.  When she was a young baby, I let her watch some of the baby movies so that I could get ready in peace!  I recently found a company that makes kids videos that I had never heard of, called Eebee's Adventures, and I was curious to how they would compare to the other baby movies I've seen.

A little about the company:
Eebee's Adventures were designed to help kids 2 and under learn by watching and doing, not by memorizing.  Anytime your child is playing, they are trying to figure things out - why balls move the way they do, why this or that happened, etc.  Eebee's Adventures show other kids in a natural playing environment and help show the cause and effect of playing with different items or doing different things.  These adventures are very simple, with bright colors, and are visually designed so that kids notice the important actions. 

My Review:
Before I start, I am not telling you to let your child watch t.v. all day long!  I think you need to put limits on it, and those limits are up to you as the parent.  That being said, I think these are great learning DVDs.  They are different from the other kids movies I've seen (like Baby Einstein, So Smart!, Praise Baby).  Eebee's Adventures really do focus on kids DOING things rather than just hearing music or stories or seeing pictures.  We were sent the first 3 DVD set (All in a Day's Play, Exploring Real Stuff, and Fguring Things Out).  Most of the videos seem to focus on the 6 month-12 month age range, however, Sydney still enjoyed watching them.  She would watch and tell me what the kids were doing ("Look! Mommy he got a ball," "He's on red stairs," "The baby dropped it").  I was impressed by her ability to narrate these movies so well!

Be sure to check out their website - they have several clips you can watch of their DVDs.  They also have a nice section for parents with downloadable activities and ideas.  Each DVD is $14.95 + shipping, or you can buy the first set of 3 for $40 with Free Shipping! 

Eebee's Adventures is offering one reader the same set of 3 that I received!
