Also available at retail from PAJANIMALS are the DVD and interactive mobile app. These four friends who snuggle together every night will sing sweet night time songs to their preschool friends at home in the new “Meet the Pajanimals” DVD, available at retailers nationwide and ncircleentertainment.com. And available at the iTunes store, the recently released PAJANIMALS “Light in the Sky” app (priced at $4.99) for the iPhone, iPad and iPod touch offers a wonderful way to experience the PAJANIMALS up close and personal, allowing children to play and sing along with this fully 3D, highly interactive episode based on the television series.
A co-production with The Jim Henson Company, Sprout and Sixteen South Television, the PAJANIMALS television series airs daily on Sprout, the 24-hour preschool television channel, during The Good Night Show and on Saturday morning on NBC. The second season of PAJANIMALS currently airs daily on Sprout and Saturday mornings on NBC Kids and follows the adventures of Sweet Pea Sue, Squacky, CowBella and Apollo. Through their imaginary travels, these cuddly musical puppets venture out on adventures of discovery, modeling the skills preschoolers need to move through their days successfully, especially getting ready for and going to bed.
Getting 2 kids in bed by their bedtime is not easy. There is no chance of allowing one to stay up while the other goes to bed because according to DD, it is just not fair to do that. Luckily, in the past few months, we have gotten it down to that it is much smoother transition to get their into their bed than before. While DD's bedtime routine is Bible reading and prayer time, The G-man pretty much runs wild until we load him into his crib. What I have noticed though is that once I put Meet the Pajanimals DVD on for him, he will stay clam while I help DD with her Bible readings. While the episodes are entertaining, they also teach valuable lessons about teamwork and sharing. Included in the DVD are also songs that my kids love to dance to. I think this is a great DVD for Pajanimals fans.
