Just In Time For National Hispanic Heritage Month

 

Washington, DC (June 2, 2014) – Get ready to shake your caderas and sing and learn español with ¡Sabor! Spanish Learning Songs, a fantastic new collection of Spanish language songs from Whistlefritz, producers of the award-winning Spanish immersion CDs Cha, Cha, Cha and ¡A Bailar! (Let’s Dance).

 

This eagerly-awaited follow-up CD – arriving September 9, 2014 just in time for National Hispanic Heritage Month (Sept. 15 -  Oct. 15) — is a lively, interactive (emphasis on the word active!) playlist of 15 original songs and family favorites performed in Spanish by internationally beloved singer-songwriter Jorge Anaya and keyboardist Didier Prossaird. ¡Sabor! introduces children to Spanish vocabulary for words and phrases that children use everyday.  The CD is a fun-filled fusion of musical styles – from cumbia and calypso to salsa and merengue – that gets the whole family moving, dancing and having a blast!

“Nothing brings a family together quite like music. And to be learning Spanish at the same time … what could be better?” says Anaya.  “Great rhythms and upbeat songs create an energy that’s contagious and gets kids on their feet every time.  In the Spanish-speaking world when people hear great music they yell ‘Sabor!  So, get ready to dance, learn Spanish and shout ‘Sabor!’”

 

Recommended for children of all ages, ¡Sabor! retails for $14.99 and is available on iTunes.  Each CD comes with a translation guide.  Whistlefritz CDs for kids have won top honors from such prestigious children’s media organizations as Parents’ Choice Foundation; KIDS FIRST!, Mom’s Choice Awards, The National Parenting Center, NAPPA, Mr. Dad and Dr. Toy’s 10 Best Educational Products and 100 Best Children’s Products.

New ‘Lemonade Stand,’ ‘Charity Bake Sale’ and

Babysitting’ Activity Kits From Bizainy

Receive Parents’ Choice Recommendations

BizainyActivityKits

 

 

Los Angeles, CA (June 3, 2014) – New Lemonade Stand, Charity Bake Sale and Babysitting Activity Kits from Bizainy™ just received Recommendations from The Parents’ Choice Awards, the nation’s oldest nonprofit program created to recognize quality children’s media.

 

In making the announcement, Parents’ Choice states that Lemonade Stand Activity Kit “…is well organized, the design is fresh and appealing; the content introduces many corporate departments, and the advice about requiring adult supervision is clear. In families where “start-up” is not part of a dinner table conversation, this turn-key kit delivers a framework for fun, and maybe even a profit.”

 

Bizainy CEO and mother of two, Carolyn Stone Enenstein shares “Bizainy is proud that The Parents’ Choice Awards’ panelists of educators, parents, specialists and kids themselves value the timeless, unplugged family fun that Bizainy Activity Kits provide.  Bizainy strives to empower kids through active dialogue about business, money management and helping others.”

Parents’ Choice reviewer Andrea Sheehan says, “As a mom to four caring, creative, entrepreneurial children the Bizainy Charity Bake Sale Kit is a welcome vehicle to channel all their ingenuity and drive…this kit helps take their initiative to the next level, incorporating structured and purposeful planning tools that help lay a solid foundation for leadership, volunteerism, and teamwork.”

 

According to Parents’ Choice reviewer Sharon Heuscher , “The Bizainy Babysitting Start-Up Kit offers a great deal of helpful information on the service and business of babysitting…The activity suggestions for babysitters to use are useful not only in a babysitting context, but in interaction with younger siblings as well, because for many children, their first experience caring for others is that of their younger brothers and/or sisters.”

 

Available for SRP $29.99 each, the Activity Kits include whimsical and practical hands-on essentials such as:  a banner and signs, decorate-your-own money box, sales pad, business cards, stickers, postcards – plus a book including kids’ recipes, marketing plan, budget, and much more.  Bizainy Activity Kits encourage entrepreneurship, creativity and fun- all contained in bright, bold eye-catching kits perfect for birthdays, gift giving and family bonding.

Makes Learning French Easy and Fun

 

 

Available July 8, 2014 from Whistlefritz Just In Time for Bastille Day

 

 

Washington, DC (June 3, 2014) – Experts agree that the earlier a child is introduced to a second language, the greater the chance the child will learn to speak like a native speaker. But who says the learning process can’t be fun? It is now thanks to On Va Jouer (Let’s Play), the newest release in the award-winning French for Kids series, available on DVD July 8, 2014 from Whistlefritz.

 

Combining live action, animation, interactive skits and music, On Va Jouer, which arrives just in time for Bastille Day July 14, features a delightful cast of characters, including host Marie, Fritzi the mischievous mouse, and a playful group of peers who introduce kids to essential French vocabulary. This fun-filled, interactive video gets kids up and moving through song and dance, teaching them French in the process. The DVD includes French subtitles and comes with an easy-to-use translation guide for parents and teachers.

 

On va chanter! (Let’s sing!) On va danser! (Let’s dance!) On va jouer! (Let’s play!) With the help of Fritzi, Marie introduces vocabulary related to different parts of the body. And what better way to get those body parts moving than with delightful sing-along, dance-along songs, including “Heads, Shoulders, Knees and Toes” and familiar French folksongs with exciting new twists. From le chapeau (the hat) to la chaussure (the shoe), kids will love trying on their new French vocabulary for clothes in playful, interactive skits.

 

Whistlefritz also produces Spanish for Kids DVDs and CDs.  Whistlefritz products have received numerous awards from national organizations that review the very best in children’s entertainment and educational programs such as Parents’ Choice, Mom’s Choice, Mr. Dad, The Dove Foundation, NAPPA and KIDS FIRST!

On Va Jouer is recommended for children ages 1-7 and retails for $19.99.  It is the latest release in the French for Kids language immersion DVD and CD series, which also includes Dedans et Dehors (Inside and Out)(DVD), Cha, Cha, Cha – French Learning Songs (CD), and Allons Danser!
