With the kiddos all home from school for the summer we as parents are left trying to figure out ways to keep them entertained. Often times when it is too hot outside our kids are left either watching tv or playing video games. Well the tv shows and video games these days are nothing like the ones we had growing up. Sometimes it is practically impossible to find something that is appropriate for our kids.
Well in steps FishFlix.com. FishFlix is one of the top destinations online for Christian and family-friendly dvds.
I received "Iesodo Joy", it is one in a series about Iesodo and his friends available at FishFlix.com. Here is what we thought:
Mommy in PA: This movie was beautiful!!! Not only in the telling of the story of the Nativity but also in the animation and the music.
My son is a little too old for this movie as I believe this is actually meant for about 2-5 years but I wish we would have had this when he was little. This is a great way to get small children to understand the story of Jesus's birth in a way that they can more easily understand.
The story is about how Iesodo's friends are planning his birthday party but there are others trying to keep them from celebrating. See how the friends come up with a solution.
The artistry is amazing, the characters are just so darn cute : ) My favorite characters are the tortoises, I really wish there would have been more of them but they were the ones carrying the three wise owls so they weren't seen a whole lot.
I also loved the music. There are a couple of the songs on here that I personally would have downloaded and played for my son all the time when he was younger.
I love the idea of having a whole series of videos using these characters because it is easy for the kids to recognize them after just a short time. I believe that this series can help a lot of parents have an easier time teaching their children about the Bible.
