Baby Kiss and Coo DVD's Review and Holiday Give Away!

My children were raised with the Baby Einstein collection, since 1999, when my first child was born. Of course, this was pre-Disney endorsement, when they were very basic and the shapes and music were basically all there was to the videos.  Since then, that innovative mother has been endorsed by Disney and is now pretty stinking rich, leaving me to wonder, "Why didn't I come up with that idea?"

There's a new collection in town now, which I was lucky enough to receive two review copies of. It's called Baby Kiss and Coo.

First of all, I have to tell you that when the package arrived, ALL of my kids were jumping for joy to see what Mommy got in the mail and who it was really for. They were practically jumping out of their pants and pulling the package out of my hands. The DVD's were wrapped in some pink tissue paper and tied with a ribbon, and by golly, I almost bit someone's hand off that was trying to pull and tug at the ribbon. LOL

We made it through the package opening, managing to neatly untie the ribbon and keep the tissue paper intact, with no thanks to all 6 kids. Regardless of the fact that I explained over and over these DVD's were on the infant level, I had all 6 children eagerly waiting to assess the DVD's on their own. We popped in the Look! Shapes! DVD first. Immediately, little Dakoda and Dylan started bopping to the classical music, which is very familiar to all of my children, and the older kids started guessing what the shapes that were dancing across the screen were. 

The other DVD that I received was Under the Sea. There was an unannounced contest between my children to guess what the shapes were again, including the octopus, the sea urchin, the starfish and many others. Needless to say, the whole family was excited about our new and exciting DVD's, and mind you, they are made for infants to enjoy. LOL


Here's the exciting part for all of you mothers who have little ones...I have the opportunity to give away 2 DVD's to THREE lucky winners! Again, I am psyched about this holiday season and want you all to experience the taste of giving (or, rather receiving) this holiday season! 

I would love to present one of these sets to a family that is struggling financially this year to provide gifts to their children, so if you are one of those unfortunate families, please go to my contact page and email me (this "confession" would definitely be held in confidence, as I understand the embarrassment that comes along with financial troubles and how hard it is to ask for help, but the economy has been rough, so please do not hesitate to email me - I want to help you and your little ones). Just tell me a little about yourself and your little one(s) and I will hold a separate drawing for those in this category. Maybe you know someone that you cannot afford to help that has a little one...let me know.

For those of you that want to participate in the random drawing that will be held on November 30th, please enter with one comment for each of the following: 

1) "Follow" Mommy Rantings (this is a requirement for the winner) and let me know why you would love to receive the DVD's. (1 entry)

2) Tweet about this contest and leave me your Twitter name on the comment. You can do this every day for one entry each day. (don't forget to leave a comment each time you do this - limit, one per day!)

3) "Like" Mommy Rantings on Facebook for two entries - let me know who you are! (comment 2 times for your entries).

4) Follow "QueenBMomma" on twitter for one entry.

5) Blog about the give away (three entries).

6) Add my button (bottom, right hand column) to your blog for 2 entries.

Please remember that I will choose the winner randomly by picking two numbers. The corresponding comments will be the winners. For the financially struggling family, I will put the names in a hat and draw one out to choose (when you email me, let me know that you followed Mommy Rantings and anything else that you did on the list above for more chances to win, however I reserve the right to choose a family due to special financially troubling circumstances). 

Also, to those who enter, please remember to leave a way for me to contact you in case you win!!! Tell your friends who have babies!

Good luck everyone and HAPPY HOLIDAYS to all!
