3 1/2 stars out of 4! Targeted at youngsters (pre-K and K) and their caregivers, Lots & Lots of Fitness Fun for Kids! is designed to inspire fun and healthy outdoor play. Combining animation (a marching red whistle character) and live-action footage of happy kids seen enjoying an afternoon at a park, the program features activities including swinging, playing with different-colored balls, climbing on jungle gyms, tumbling (including the ever-popular partial somersaults and rolling sideways down gentle hills), chasing bubbles, playing peek-a-boo, and more. For some, this might also serve as their first introduction to organized sports such as basketball, soccer, and even golf using kid-sized versions of the balls and clubs (using tiny basketballs, even half-pints have a chance to dunk the ball in a miniature plastic hoop set, and for golf, balls and clubs are made of forgiving plastic). An excellent title that encourages outdoor play, this is highly recommended. Aud: K, P. (C. Block) –Video Librarian January – February 2017 (Volume 32, Issue 1)
Animated character Winky Whistle hosts this lively program filled with tots and reschoolers at play. The action is mostly outdoors and adult-free and features scenes of little ones climbing up slides, swinging on swings, leaping off platforms, and chasing balls. In sports segments, kids swing bats at wiffle balls on tees, take turns stuffing assorted balls through nets, use mini golf clubs to attack oversize golf balls, and play with soccer balls that get tangled in nets. Winky Whistle struts to marching music between segments, and occasional onscreen captions identify colors, numbers, and sports equipment. Little ones love to watch other kids, and seeing these adorable, multicultural, giggling tots sporting Team Baby Fit sweatshirts while running, tumbling, tossing balls, chasing bubbles, and playing peekaboo against perky background music will have young viewers ready to join the fun. – Reviewed by Candace Smith –Booklist Online Exclusive: December 5, 2016
Lots & Lots of Fitness Fun for Kids! DVD Review by Amanda Hopkins
When you live in Minnesota, you start to itch for some warm summer weather. This is true not only for mom but also for the kids in the house. I was able to sit down and watch Lots & Lots of Fitness Fun for Kids DVD from Marshall Publishing & Promotions, INC. with my youngest.
During this 30 minute DVD, your child will watch numerous other children as they get outside and play. We are guided by a cartoon whistle that tells us what the various activities are, such as t-ball, basketball, golf, soccer and the playground. We also get to play peek-a-boo, and we finish the movie off with a song. We even get to learn a little about colors when the whistle names off different colored balls.
I sat down with my three-year-old daughter, and we watched this together. This movie is recommended for ages 1-5, but at three, my daughter seemed at the older age for this. I could see this being used for the 1-2 year age as an excellent introduction to the different ways to play outside.
During the video, I engaged my daughter in conversation about what was going on. This got us talking about things like, “We should try that when the snow melts” or, “Remember how well you did that during the summer!” This made her want to get outside more.
I love watching videos with my children that get them wanting to get moving. Finding new activities and sports that look fun mean that my children will want to try them. Lots & Lots of Fitness Fun for Kids was a great video to do just that. Your child will want to get out and try some fun new things, and you will be happy knowing that they are moving and learning new skills.
