Boz the Bear Review and Giveaway!

Friends at For the Display of His Splendor and Birbitt Thinks are pleased to bring you this fantastic Christian kids DVD series review and giveaway! Please share and send your friends!

Exclaim Entertainment recently sent DaLynn some of their fantastic BOZ the Bear dvd's for the purpose of review. What a fun little series this is! Having never heard of BOZ before, she and her family were intrigued and excited to find such a fun new friend. I think they've found their new favorite character for the preschool kids!  

As a Christian and homeschooling mom, I want what goes into my kids' minds to be meaningful, purposeful, and educational. Most importantly, I want it to point them to our Creator and God! BOZ captures that making it a winner for us!

BOZ the Bear is a Christian kids dvd series aimed mostly at preschoolers, with videos on shapes, numbers, colors, and more. BOZ lives in the backyard treehouse of a wonderful family. Drew and Gracie, Mom and Dad Baxter, and Grammie and Grampie B are a kind and likable family. It's wonderful to see traditional values highlighted and a kids' series that takes education and proudly weaves it with faith in Jesus Christ.

That's just what this series does. Think big purple dinosaur here; in fact, one of the creators of BOZ was also a co-creator of that well-known series. If you are familiar with that, you'll recognize many elements in BOZ, but  that show never had a heart focus as there was no acknowledgement of Christ as Lord! It's got all the music, all the educational value, all the fun - only with the BOZ videos you don't have unsupervised children, or any of the other questionable content you'll find readily available to the preschool set these days.

DaLynn and her little ones watched A WowieBOZowee Christmas, and have continued to watch it multiple times daily since. Her twins are 2 years old and have actively asked to watch BOZ many times since receiving the movies! She knows that they have found a new friend, and is happy to let them watch because she can rest assured of its educational value, wholesome entertainment, and that it will point them to Christ with everything they learn. Each dvd ends with a prayer, setting the perfect example to children, and really wraps it all into a neat little package for them in conclusion of whatever they've learned.

Besides movies, the BOZ series of products includes music, books, and adorable plush toys. In fact, Exclaim sent her Thank You God for B-O-Z's and 1-2-3's! and Thank You God for Colors and Shapes! as well as 9" plushes that she's looking forward to giving to her twins for Christmas! I know that they will be excited to have more BOZ to view, and with their own BOZ the Bear to love. I am so excited to find this series and know that so many kids love it, and I'm sure just as DaLynn will, we'll come back to BOZ for more!

Her kids always enjoy the special features on any video, and BOZ videos are no exception. There are some fun songs and activities to be had, and more if you place the dvd in your computer drive. The website offers a lot of fun activities as well, including watching clips, coloring pages, online games, ecards, screensavers, and wallpapers. There's even a spot for online book reading! BOZ reads the book on a video, and there's even some simple animation; just right to set for a preschooler and let them enjoy!

The folks at BOZ the Bear have offered the chance for you to win your own copies of all three of these movies as well! There will be 5 winners who will all receive all three movies, and 2 winners will also receive a 9" plush BOZ the Bear of their own! Just enter using the rafflecopter below. Please note that the first entries are mandatory, and as all entries will be verified, entering without doing those actions will disqualify you from winning.

This sounds like a cute series. My daughter may enjoy this show when she gets a little older. I don't know if my boys would still appreciate it, but they may.
