I’ll be completely honest. I wasn’t bowled over by the Trebellina & Friends DVD. I just wasn’t taken by it’s simplistic graphical illustrations. I expected more! I expected pizzazz! I expected all the hype all the parents were talking about!
But guess what? Who am I to give an opinion, when my 2 younger kids, a 3 1/2 year old and 1 year old were completely enthralled by it. They (well, the elder one) insisted on watching over and over again. The baby actually enjoyed the show so much, at times I could hear him giggle! I suppose, the simpler the better? Kids aren’t complicated creatures…so, I suppose, they do appreciate the simple things in life, eh?
With Trebellina and her friends, they get serious with the notes, and then they have fun with the songs! Either way, both my younger kids really enjoy the various lessons. From learning about notes to learning about the names of musical instruments and the individual sounds they make.
Through this DVD, the parent will find it bridges the gap towards formal lessons. I mean, who would want to spend a mini fortune on lessons only to find that the child has absolutely no interest whatsoever in say, the piano, but prefers the guitar or the flute? So, yes.. I have grown very quickly to appreciate this wonderful discovery. I will now eat all my words *chomp chomp chomp gulp*. 😉
BUY IT: At a very affordable price, I can very safely say, it is great value for money. Your child will insist on replaying this over and over again. They won’t get bored by it, as kids just love shouting out the next instrument that appears and they certainly love bouncing around to all the music! Don’t believe me?
