West Islip, NY (PRWEB) July 1, 2010
In time for the 4th of July celebration, the video production company, KidsPlay Unplugged, LLC, is proud to announce the launch of its new website http://www.returnoftheasphaltangels.com and the production of its new DVD series, “Return of the Asphalt Angels.” The DVD's aim to be a revolutionary guide on how to recapture the innocence of children, to return to an era when child play was an integral part of the culture, handed down from one kid to another, generation to generation. In the first of the DVD series, “Old-Time Classic Play”, younger kids team up with older kids who introduce them to such classic games as Red-Light Green-Light, Kick the Can, Duck Duck Goose and Hopscotch. The production is an obvious labor of love, capturing the innocence and delight of youth.
“Kids should be strongly encouraged to do what kids did back in the ‘good old days,’” says producer and founder of KidsPlay Unplugged, Bob Totans. “Kids should play to have fun with the freedom to decide what games they play and what rules are followed.”
Experts agree that children who use their imaginations, make up their own games and follow their own rules are better able to learn, are more independent and are in better control of their behavior and emotions.
Totans says that motivating children to play traditional games allows them to experience the simple thrill of running, jumping, hopping and skipping while positively impacting their physical, social, emotional and cognitive well-being. Encouraging children to engage in old-style imaginary play, without relying on store bought toys for props opens up new horizons and better prepares them for the future.
KidsPlay Unplugged is currently videotaping production footage in conjunction with the Nassau County Police Department Police Activity League. Parents who are interested in having their little asphalt angels featured in “Old-Time Classic Play” productions are encouraged to visit http://www.returnoftheasphaltangels.com, email email@example.com or call 631-649-5998 for more details.
“Return of the Asphalt Angels -- Old-Time Classic Play” will help families reclaim and restore a more fulfilling and independent lifestyle for children by encouraging them to actively engage in a lifestyle of creative play that is self-initiated, free-spirited and imaginative.

About KidsPlay Unplugged, LLC
KidsPlay Unplugged, LLC was founded by retired police officer turned independent producer/videographer, Bob Totans. A child of the fifties and now a proud father of five and grandfather, he found himself dismayed by a society whose children were plugged into video games, TV’s, computers and cell phones rather than engaged and active in real life. Current research concurs: in order to ensure a healthier and happier lifestyle, child play needs to be restored to its purest and simplest form: unstructured, creative and improvised play, vital for a child's appropriate physical, cognitive and emotional development.
This was the seed for the formation of KidsPlay Unplugged. For the past three years, Bob and his son, Bobby Jr., also a father, have been creating the video footage for the DVD's. They co-wrote and recorded original songs, edited video and worked on the DVD's artwork and website design. Bob's four daughters provided the inspiration and motivation for the little asphalt angels, who tirelessly worked hard at play to show their true and extraordinary spirit.
KidsPlay Unplugged is also sending special thanks and tribute to U.S. soldiers, who through their own fortitude and sacrifice have given Americans the freedom to experience life to its fullest. A portion of proceeds from the sale of the DVD’s will be donated to the Wounded Warrior Project.
