It's Hip Hop, Baby!

Recently, we received a brand new DVD called It's Hip Hop Baby!: Rockin' Dance Party!. Visit their website, It'sHipHopBaby.com and see what people are saying about this fun and energetic new DVD series for kids.

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.

Here's the deal. When I played it at my house the interest was kind of so-so. I wasn't sure what I would say about it in the review. Could it be that AJ has never heard hip hop music and simply prefers the sound of Mamma Mia or the Dixie Chicks? Or maybe it has something to do with the fact that he's the youngest of 5 kids and has gotten accustomed to watching a more sophisticated kind of movie?

I decided to try the DVD out on my niece, who is 2 1/2 years old.

What a difference! She did not want the DVD to end! She was instantly hooked on the screen and even tried singing along with the music first time around. Here's a picture of the kids watching the video. NO joke!

So, the point is that everyone (even kids) have preferences. This was a hit with my 2 1/2 year old niece but just so-so with my 3 1/2 year old AJ. I'd say, check out the website and see what you think! It's available on Amazon.com right now for a GREAT price (only $7.99 new!). There are several fun topics in the series. Which one would your kids prefer?
