For the first time, Animal Mechanicals, Bo on the Go and Monster Math Squad bring interactive adventures, exciting discoveries and irresistible fun to DVD, thanks to to the folks at Mill Creek Entertainment. And, like my previous post featuring BabyFirstTV titles, these DVDs for kids are very affordable, at only $12.98 per DVD, making learning fun, while not breaking the bank. :-)
The kind folks at Mill Creek Entertainment sent along the above mentioned titles, as well as the new Dennis the Menace DVD for my girls and I to watch. And, I have to say, this selection of kid-friendly titles sure did make my girls' day.
A World Fix-It Fun!
Currently airing on The Hub, Animal Mechanicals encourages young viewers to help solve challenges with the Animal Mechanicals Team of transforming superheroes. Children will enjoy over 6 hours of teamwork, problem solving and adventure.

Have No Fear, The Monster Math Squad Is Here!
Math is fun with over 6 hours and 33 episodes of the lovable monsters using their skills of counting, measuring, sizing and sorting to help other monsters in trouble and make new friends along the way.
The most lovable troublemaker, Dennis the Menace, is back in this hilarious 33 episode collection.
Out of the four titles sent, my girls were only familiar with Bo on the Go, which is a personally favorite of Bella's. She can't get enough of the catchy theme song, and loves dancing and moving around to help give Bo power and strength to do different things.
As for Dennis the Menace, I used to watch this show back in the day. This animated series was a far cry from the black and white version I watched with my brothers early on. Did you watch the animated Dennis the Menace series growing up? If so, what did you think of it? I remember having my mom get me up a half hour early on school days, just so I had time to get ready and watch the show while having my cereal. So, when I heard that Mill Creek Entertainment was releasing this 33 episode DVD, along with the other titles, I couldn't help but smile as I knew I would be reliving some of my favorite childhood memories when watching it for the first time with my girls.
While the girls enjoyed watching a few of the Dennis the Menace episodes, they were more excited to watch all 26 episode of Bo on the Go, which we watched in a weeks' time at home and on the go in the car. Because the episodes are relatively short in length (long enough to keep even the youngest of viewers attention), we were able to watch a few episodes in one sitting. This is a high energy show that will have your little ones moving and grooving along with Bo as she takes them on fun adventures. Being a health educator by trade, I fell in love with this show the first time I saw it, as I loved how the show promoted physical fitness for little ones and an overall healthy lifestyle achieved through active play.
As for Monster Math Squad, I am just starting to teach Savannah math, including basic adding and subtracting, so this new DVD filled with 30 fun-filled episodes is coming in handy as I spend one-on-one time with her watching this show. Savannah loves the cute monster characters and learning skills like counting, measuring, sizing and sorting. Who knew math could be so much, especially when colorful monsters like the ones in Monster Math Squad are teaching your child(ren)? :-)
Both of my girls instantly fell in love with the Animal Mechanicals show, as they love problem solving. With over 6 hours of transforming superhero adventures, my girls are only halfway through the 33 episodes, and loving every minute of it. This show currently airs on The Hub network, so if you have this channel in your cable lineup and have little ones, you will definitely want to tune in. We are now making a point to watch and record episodes from this show, to help foster the importance of team work and problem solving with the girls, as they learn and grow.
Overall, I have to say that I have impressed with the recent new releases from Mill Creek Entertainment for children. All of the new educational releases from March 18th are perfect for at-home viewing with your little ones, as you help them learn new skills from fun characters, while offering up hours of viewing enjoyment. My girls and I have a few hours left on each DVD sent to us, before they start asking me to watch them all over again...again and again. And, I will not hesitate or say "No" as I know that these are great learning tools to help them prepare for kindergarten and beyond.
I can't wait to see what other releases Mill Creek Entertainment has in store for kids and families to enjoy in the months ago. But, in the meantime, my family will be enjoying the above DVDs, along with the 4 BabyFirstTV DVDs I mentioned in an earlier post, which also released on March 18th.
