Chipper is our conscientious ambassador for good behavior in children zero-6
Marin, CA (PRWEB) August 5, 2008
IAGmedia, a family-focused entertainment company, announced today that it received iParenting Media's 2008 "Outstanding" Product Award for its teaching-through-nature DVD activity set, "Into the Great Outdoors." The animated and live action DVD, 52-page Activity & Story book, plus bonus CD, playfully teach kids respect for self, family, and others through nature.
"Chipper is our conscientious ambassador for good behavior in children zero-6," says company founder Stephanie Rach. "Music, mishap, and adventure drive the storylines and keep kids engaged so they have fun learning and, in turn, help remind their parents about how to behave in everyday situations."
In "Into the Great Outdoors" Chipper learns the rules, breaks the rules, and then is guided by environmental creatures big and small through the consequences and positive ending. The live action footage is by award-winning Bay Area naturalist, Doug McConnell.
As eco-anxiety becomes a household word for environmentally concerned adults, the Company focuses on kids; providing a get-out-and-play spirit to storylines so kids will find their "green" side naturally.
"We want kids to hug trees because they love trees," says Ms. Rach. "Excite kids about getting outside to explore their surroundings, sneak in the behavioral lessons, provide parents with playful rhymes to reinforce good values, and you have a daily dose of emotional wellness."
IAGmedia has been quietly launching products into the marketplace for the past year with the goal to provide parents with a support tool to help positively reinforce good behavior. The Company recently launched the Let's Go Chipper "Get Ready to Fly" set which helps prepare kids for flying before parents even pack a bag.
Additionally, all products are manufactured following the Company's "Less packaging, more fun" philosophy; using soy-based ink and FSC certified paper plus cardboard sleeves for DVDs and CDs whenever possible.
