Eebee's adventures is a fun company that designs child products to engage your child and inspire rich play to bring about important lessons. They are all about first hand experience and believe babies learn by doing. Unlike Baby Einstein which has a focus on watching, eebee’s adventures is all about doing! 6t Eebee is a little puppet who plays on th floor with an adult or tot using real, everyday objects! You might see him playing with a brush or piece of paper, for example. The videos aren’t about memorizing ABC’s but instead about exploring.
Until receiving the books for this review, I have to admit that I’d never heard of Eebee. Maybe some of you out there haven’t? I haven’t viewed any of the full length DVD’s but after reading about them had to see what they are all about because they sounded so cool. From reading on line, it sounded like an interactive experience with your little one. So, I headed over to You Tube and found a few videos that are less than 2 minutes in length but I think introduce Eebee pretty well. I have to admit that I may be hooked! I love what I’ve seen of these videos. It’s recommended babies under 2 not watch tv and 2 and older only a couple hours a day. I think what matters is the quality you allow them to watch. Anyway, I want some!
Finally, we have BATH TIME/ALL ABOUT ME SET. The Bath Time book is designed to be played with in the tub. You put the book in water to fill up the squirters and then squeeze it and it sprays. When you press Eebee's belly, he makes a cute squuek. Recently, I attended a baby shower where I presented this set as a gift to the new mom. This book was quite the hit among the mothers as they were excited to find a bath book. Apparently, bath books are difficult to find? I think it is very cute but I think is more appropriate for around age one than toddlers.
For those of you that don’t know I have a masters degree in Clinical Psychology and am All but Dissertation completed toward my doctorate in Clincial Psychology, thus companies that use task development and stage explanations for their products earn huge thumbs up from me. Their website really goes beyond just using “jargon” to sell a product though, they discuss tasks and child development for child activities that have nothing to do with their products. For example, on one of their webpages there is a picture of a little girl in her mother’s high heels. The website explains the importance of this moment, how it relates to child development, and how the parent can interact with the moment! I highly suggest you check out the part of their website entitled “Parent Info”. This portion of the website also gives ideas for at home paper adventures, pouring adventures, rolling and sliding adventures, kitchen band, just add water, la la language, and Laundry List of ideas. Such great and cheap ideas! Who would have thought a toy company would be endorsing make-at-home activities? That tells me they are a company with heart and genuine care for our little ones. They also have a great blog, where you can really get to know the company. For example, I think it is great to see the founder playing with his one year old baby girl. BTW, the founder has his own blog about raising his daughter! How many companies do you come across that are like US in that aspect?
You can also watch eebee adventures at Comcast on Demand and at http://www.parents.tv/.
BTW, in case you are wondering Eebee is short for “every baby”. When I started learning about the product, I kept thinking “Why did they choose this name? What is eebee anyway?” However, I finally learned that the name was chosen because of “every baby” and it is a word babies can say.
