Will you be traveling this upcoming holiday with your children?  And, will it be their first time on a plane, or are scared when it comes to flying?  Well, help put their minds at ease, while keeping them busy with the Let's Go Chipper, "Get Ready to Fly" activity pack. This fun kits comes with a pillow "back" pack, a read-along activity book and crayons sets -- everything your child would need for the plane ride, to keep them entertained.  

Get Ready to Fly! Activity Set 
"The perfect gift for family travel! Soar to new heights with Chipper as he takes his first flight. From what to pack, to check-in, security, boarding, flying and arriving, Chipper playfully teaches kids good manners and safety when traveling. Eco-friendly packaging - arrives in a reusable tote!"

What is the Let's Go Chipper Series you ask?  Here is some information on this wonderful series, which was created by a mom:

About the Let's Go Chipper Series:

"It's that simple. We believe music, mishap and humor are the best way to engage, excite, and educate children at home and in the classroom. Social skills are developed before a child can even speak so we provide positive stories to reinforce good behavior in children. Our characters are positive role models and provide parenting tools that help teach good behavior and respect for the environment. 

The Let's Go Chipper!TM series is committed to supporting programs that help educate children and families about nature and the environment. From local urban settings and conservancy centers to state and national parks the Let's Go Chipper!TM series gives back to organizations that foster environmental stewardship and provide a place for kids to play."

In addition to the "Get Ready to Fly" pack, I was also sent the "Let's Go Chipper, Helping Hands" storybook and the "Into the Great Outdoors" DVD to review.  

Chipper and friends learn to help out

"Join Chipper and friends on a playful journey that will teach kids the importance of using our hands in helpful ways. By positively reinforcing the good that comes when we all work together children will be ready to lend their hands and hearts around the home, school, and community.

Vibrant pictures bring the playful rhyme to life, giving children a lesson they will embody and share with friends."

Into the Great Outdoors 

Into the Great Outdoors DVD plus Bonus CD

"Excite and ready kids for outdoor explorations in nature. Through music, mishap and humor Chipper playfully teaches young kids the importance of respecting the environment. An award winning animated and live action adventure that even provides parents with easy references like "you can play, but don't stray" to help keep kids in stride with daily activities. 

Builds good character and respect for others. Correlated to national academic standards. Good fun and great learning for kids 2 and up."

CD Soundtrack

Both my daughters enjoyed the storybook and DVD, and find Chipper and friends just adorable.  Savannah especially enjoyed the music video and CD soundtrack (which is always playing in the car).   What a great way to teach young children about the great outdoors and the environment, while also instilling core values like helping others, teamwork, etc.  

I live in a highly populated farm area here in CT, with a horse farm a few doors away.  The 4-H is big here amongst families, and their mission to get children outdoors is seen with the various activities and fairs they hold throughout the year.  I am hoping that when my girls get older they will enjoy going to the 4-H camps in the summer.  But, in the meantime, they will enjoy attending the annual agricultural fairs, and reading about Chipper and his adventures in the "Let's Go Chipper!" series.  

So, if you are looking for a fun series to share with your children about the environment and nature, or will be traveling and need a good take-along kit, why not head on over to the the "Let's Go Chipper!" website and browse their product offering?  

 And, if you have an iPad or iPhone, make sure you check out the fun, new Let's Go Chipper! app which is available through iTunes.  I downloaded this app for Savannah, who loves playing with it during car rides or relaxing on the couch. She can't get enough of Chipper!
