Giveaway & Review: The Jimmies - Trying Funny Stuff on DVD (2 Winners) [CLOSED]

My kindergartner and two toddlers have always preferred children's songs that resemble main stream music over anything that is too cutesy. That is why the music brought to us by The Jimmies was a big hit with my children.

Last month, The Jimmies released a DVD titled The Jimmies present Trying Funny Stuff, which consists of music videos, a live concert, and karaoke music. Although my children are a little young for karaoke, they did thoroughly enjoy the music videos. They were very visually appealing to young children.

The majority of The Jimmies music is upbeat and covers a wide array of genres. On this one DVD, pop, folk, rock, Latin, country, just to name a few, were all represented. The songs also cover a wide range of subject matters, such as the names of animals, the names of musical instruments, how not to spread germs, and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches. These are all topics children can relate to easily.

Although my children loved to watch the music videos, the live concert footage lost about 2/3 of their attention. They still enjoyed the music, but they no longer wanted to give the TV screen their undivided attention. I personally cannot sit through a televised concert either, unless it is a highly choreographed show.

You can only find this DVD at your local Barnes & Noble bookstore or on . You can also purchase The Jimmies newest music CD Make Your Own Someday on .
