Copy-Kids Review and Giveaway

Munchkin 2 and I had the opportunity to review Copy-Kids DVDCopy-Kids is a new video aimed at children ages 6 months to 5 years that encourages the eating, and enjoyment of fruits and vegetables.  The video features children not only eating 12 different fruits and veggies but loving them and showing their excitement which infects the child watching the video. What a great concept!!

Munchkin 2's Review:
She loved it!!  She loved to watch the different children eating vegetables that she already loves.  She would ask for me or Munchkin 1 to put it on for her.  She would even say, "mmmmmm".

My review:
I have mixed feelings on this product.  It is a great concept and Munchkin 2 enjoyed it which is important but I think it could have been done differently to improve its ease of access.

Lets start with the good:
I think Copy-Kids would work really well for a parent that has children who do not like to eat their vegetables.  Munchkin 2 thoroughly enjoyed the DVD and it helps her to recognize the names of the vegetables better.  They have a variety of fruits and vegetables in the chapters. 

The not as good:
The chapters are all separate on the disc so after every chapter I would have to manually click the next chapter.  There was not a way to set it to play all the chapters at once.  That was very frustrating.  I thought although they had a variety of fruits and vegetables that they could have had more problem vegetables.  For example. green beans were not one of the vegetables and that is the one I have the most problems with Munchkin 2, she like to peel them apart and only eat the seeds inside. 

The verdict:
Copy-Kids would be very effective in getting children to eat vegetables.  It has a few flaws but who doesn't.  This concept is new and I predict will only grow and get better with time.  I can't wait to see the next DVD they come out with!
