ÂGallop, Hop & Stomp,Â the initial release from the new Monkeydoos DVD exercise series for kids from Thinkeroo, has been awarded a ParentsÂ Choice Approval, it was announced today by Mark Mazzarella, producer/director of the series.
ÂGallop, Hop & StompÂ gets children using their entire bodies to simulate physical movements made by different animals found in the wild. Physical movement, especially when started at younger ages, has proven to develop motor and coordination skills that lead to prolonged health, emotional well-being, potential for improved academic performance, accelerated social adaptation and increased energy. In a series of fun activities set to upbeat original songs, host Maureen Straub and her simian friends Flip, Tumble and Twist take viewers into their make-believe jungle to hop like frogs, climb like monkeys and stomp like elephants.
