My little Mushy is rapidly growing in size and mentality.
It’s becoming very difficult to find activities that she can do alone and still stimulate her brain.
While she enjoys drawing scribbles and reading picture books, she still likes to have an audience.
As much as I love spending time with her, I need to straighten my hair in the AM…
That’s when a saint from my job passed me along the DVD Rio 2.
I popped it in the DVD and it was love at first sight!
I mean, do you see the hearts floating from her big eyes to the TV screen?
Between the Brazilian samba music and the catchy tunes, my Mushy was hooked!
She dances throughout the movie and likes to repeat the word “Bird” and “Bug” at the TV.
I would definitely say these flicks stimulate her brain and entertain her while I do chores.
Rio: The first movie is about a pet bird and a wild bird. A Brazilian scientist believed them to be the last two blue macaws in the world. He wanted them to mate before it meant the end of their species. Before they could get to know each other, these two birds got abducted by poachers. They quickly escaped and made plenty of friends along their way back home. Unfortunately, they had a to fight against an evil cockatoo and some pesky monkeys before they would be able to gain their freedom.
Rio 2: The second movie begins with introducing the families of those same two blue macaws. You could see right away they adapted to civilization and were living like humans. This time their two care takers get captured by poachers. It’s up to these two birds and their loyal friends to save their care takers and a surprise flock they meet in the amazon. Our favorite evil cockatoo returns to get revenge against the heroic birds, but he was a small battle to fight compared to the poachers.
These two movies get the JAX SEAL OF APPROVAL!
Or should I say, the MUSHY seal of approval?
Not only does my baby girl really enjoy these two movies, but it’s fun for the adults also.
I’ll admit that I totally shook my tushy several times to the music in the film.
I’ll even admit that I find the cockatoo’s voice sort of sexy. Is that wrong?
What movies do you find best to help entertain a young child?
