Playful Planet - Storyland Yoga REVIEW and GIVEAWAY (TOMOSON)
Sponsored by Tomoson.com
I was lucky to have the opportunity to review the Playful Planet Storyland Yoga DVD. It is a winner of the Mom's Choice Awards, Parents Choice Approved; It was a Dr. Toy Winner for best green product!
This yoga dvd is geared for teaching children, aged 3-8, basic yoga. It is hosted by "Ahmed Fahmy" and involves a group of children.
Ahmed narrates and enacts a story based on animals and nature, and while doing so is teaching the children yoga positions. Once they have finished acting out the story, they practice the positions they learned in a "routine".
I will admit, that I have never tried yoga before. It wasn't my "thing". I must say how enjoyable this was! Julien had a lot of fun (he was a little antsy in the beginning, but once the story got going he got into it). I was very surprised at how much of a workout it actually is - and realized how out of shape I am. Julien was able to keep up with it much more than I was.
There are two programs on the DVD - Condor Trek and Save The Whale. Julien enjoyed them both equally; I really like that they use the animals in the stories - I found that it really helped to keep his attention focused on the program - and he really didn't even realize that he was "exercising".
Ahmed does a great job of portraying the animals and making their sounds; he has the kids get involved and I will definitely be keeping this in our DVD library.
