Ladybugs and Tonka Trucks: eebee’s ~Revew and Giveaway~

If you haven’t heard of Eebee’s adventures yet, you must live under a rock. It is a really great TV, DVD, toy, and book series created by Every Baby Company. We all know that babies learn by “doing.” Simple things like rolling a ball, or tearing paper is magic for a baby. That’s why Stephen Gass developed eebee’s Mix&Mash adventures in the Kitchen for Baby & You. It is the first ever cooking-with-your baby book from eebee’s adventures. It combines nutrition, learning, and family time with your little ones. But I know what you’re thinking. “Toddler/baby in the kitchen=big messes.” And your probably right, but it is the perfect solution for families that want to start good nutritional habits early. All of the recipes encourage babies to learn, feel, touch, mash, shake, oosh, and goosh which is a really fun way to learn. The book is published by Sterling Publishing Co. that has been one of the world’s leading publisher’s in non-fiction books for over 60 years. The book is on baby board which is also good because it is full of fun pictures and colors that baby can enjoy while making recipes right out of it. And you don’t have to worry about getting food all over it, you can just wipe it off.

Each book comes with a DVD that includes the recipes done with eebee, Kristy Glass (eebee’s play partner) and Parents TV anchor Juli Auclair. They also show the recommended age, servings, and ingredients. These are also fun to watch with your baby. Moochie actually watched them, and she’s not much of a TV watcher-at all. It was fun, engaging, and informative. It also includes fun ways to play and explore your baby’s surroundings. Things as simple as pillows, a measuring cup, and a ball come to life for children. I personally had not thought of these. You don’t need a noisy extravagant toy to learn, you can have just as much fun if not more right in your own bathtub.

Eebee’s adventures has won 20 national parent’s choice awards such as: Parenting Magazine’s “DVD of the Year”, NAPPA GOLD award, National Parenting Center Seal of Approval, and iParenting Media’s Outstanding Product award.

The Moochie Test: We tried out the blueb-eebee soup. Sounds complicated right? WRONG! 3 ingredients total, and one is optional:

1. 1 cup fresh or frozen blueberries.

2. 1/4 cup water.
3. 1 tbsp. plain yougurt. (optional)
She helped wash the blueberries and ate a few along the way. Then she helped me pour the water which she really enjoyed, and wanted to do it again. Then we placed the bowl in the microwave for 1 minute. Let cool. She then helped me add the yogurt with a spoon which turned out to be a lopsided smiley face. After we mixed in the yogurt she laughed when the color changed. She loved the soup, and loved the mess even more. (I wish I had pictures, but my camera was M.I.A)
