Fun On The Farm DVD Review/Giveaway

Mindi #28

TM Books and Video's has given me the opportunity to review a product for them, John Deere Fun on the Farm prechool DVD is a 35 minute movie that will have all little boys that love tractors going crazy. The movie is a  fun and educational preschool video for younger children from ages 2-6. 

The little ones will learn all kinds of things from watching this movie. They will learn where the food they eat comes from, all about growing seasons when certain foods grow the best, how to plant, cultivating and also how farmers harvest  the food in the fall. They get to see tractors and combines and lots of farm animals. There is a narrator who is Doodle the Rooster and is joined by Harvey Horse and Bell, the dairy cow. There are also game to play along with the Cloud Game where you try to find animals in the clouds up in the sky.

Visit the Farm in the Zoo at Lincoln Park Zoo, right in the middle of Chicago. You will also go to the John Deere Harvester Works in East Moline, Illinois to see how John Deere makes their combines. All this fun is set to nine new original songs by our favorite singer/songwriter, James Coffey. 

My Thoughts: This is such a great movie for little boys everywhere that loves animals and tractors. My little boy has watched it so many times in just the short time he has had it and every time he interacts with the movie. I am also so surprised at how much he has learned from this movie he has learned all about tractors, combines which to be honest I didn't know that is what they were called lol. So, I guess you could say I learned something too. It is really a cute movie and I am sure I will be getting more because they have a lot of John Deere movies just like this. I also feel that the movie is just the right amount of time, with little ones after a short time they get really squirmy so 35 minutes was perfect.

~share 7 facts about yourself
~then I get to give 15 other bloggers this award.

1) Not many of my blogger friends on here, you don't know that I got married the day after my 18th Birthday. I know how crazy could I have been. Yes, I was still in High School at the time and I did still graduate and with a 3.8. We didn't have our first child which is my daughter until a month before I was 21. I am not sure why I got married at that age but when I find out I will let you know.

2) I call my hubby by his nickname which is Bucket for a really crazy reason. My first husband his name is George when we divorced I remarried whom is the daddy to our little boy. Ok here is the reason my hubby's name is also George I know who marries 2 guys with the same name. Also last names both start with M's another crazy thing. A good think if I call my hubby George he will never know I messed up lol just kidding but really.

3) My Junior year in High School I was a homecoming attendant. This was such a great time in my high school years actually the only one worth remembering. I loved my dress it was so simple and elegant at the same time and was just perfect. Also the song was song by Savage Garden not sure if you all remember who they are but they were my favorite and more then likely if they were still around I would still listen to them and they weren't to bad looking either lol.

4) I am a tow-boaters wife which is something that can be really hard at times. My hubby will be at work on the river for 30 days at a time going up and down the Mississippi river pushing barges and hundreds of miles away from us. They only communication that we have is well cell phones and messages on facebook. Then he gets to come home for 15 days which is always so nice. It is really hard when it comes to holidays, b-day parties, family outing and other things. I have to sit the kids down and explain why daddy won't be home for this one and that when daddy gets home we will go do something just the four of us. The kids are getting use to it which makes it easier. I do fine due to me just sticking to a routine.

5) I am a list maker like I am OCD about it. I have a list for every month that has how much we will spend to a t from rent, to a hair bow. Like I said I am OCD about it. I even have lists for each room that we will have in our house when we move what all we will need for each room like wall colors to a trash can it is crazy. I guess it can be good but I am just CRAZY.

6) My all time favorite movies are: Willie Wonka both of them, Mary Poppins, all Zombie movies, Wizard of Oz, Gone with the Wind, Donald Duck lol I know do you remember how cute he was. I also love Night of the Living Bread I know you are like what in the world is that but you can watch it on youtube it is only like maybe 15 minutes long. With tv shows I can't live without my General Hospital, Vampire Diaries, Castle, Off the Map just to name a few. Also I was really upset when LOST was no more and it really did get lost I still have tears;(

7) My dream area to live is Dublin, Oh which we be a reality in May 2014. We are waiting that long due to hubby will be in driving school for 2 years to learn to drive a boat, then we want to live here for another year after the schooling and let the kids finish school here before we move. I love Dublin for so many reasons but let me just say I love golf and since it is a golfer community that is perfect.  I mean I can play some golf well Tiger Woods on PS2 if that counts lol. Plus we will have a Target there so excited about that one.

I hope you all injoyed learning the 7 facts about me. There are more but it was only a 7 facts award lol!
