Product Review: Trebellina DVD

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.


Little ones are fascinated as lovable Trebellina, Rock Bassey and friends introduce musical concepts, instrument names and sounds, as well as teach note recognition. Foot-taping tunes and classical music with relevant, inspiring visuals make music come alive! Music lessons have never been so much fun!

Recently I had the chance to check out the Introducing Trebellina DVD which retails for $19.95 at the Trebellina website.  It is a runtime of 32 minutes.  It is geared towards children aged 1-4 but I thought perhaps I could learn a thing or two about reading music as well.  (And I did!) The DVD is super cute and has a lot of characters that I think kids would really enjoy – including Trebellina, Rock Bassey and Rhythmo as well as all of the notes and it plays each of them and identifies which one it is to help kids learn.  In addition to reading music it also teaches about different kind of instruments and all of their sounds.

At 32 minutes, I think the DVD was a great length – with just enough information to keep kids attention and not allow them to get bored.  If you have a little one that you think should be getting in to music – you should definitely check out this DVD and see where things go from there!

I received one or more of the products mentioned above for free using Regardless, I only recommend products or services I use personally and believe will be good for my readers.

Book Review: Quilting with a Modern Slant

Ah, here I go reading yet another craft book that I will probably never have time to even consider doing.  But I just love quilts and they are so beautiful and intricate and I don’t think I’ll ever be able to make something quite so wonderful.

Quilting with a Modern Slant includes people, patterns and techniques inspiring the Modern Quilt Community.

It starts with 6 steps to making a quilt.  Only 6? You make it sound so easy!

The designs in this book are all so neat, maybe I can try my hand at one of the easier ones… someday… when I stop requesting way too many books to review 😉

If you are even the slightest bit interested in Quilting you should certainly check out this book because it will give you tons of ideas and inspiration! (And now I am trying to figure out how to make a quilt inspired scrapbook layout. hmm. Not sure I’ll be able to figure out how to pull that one off but wouldn’t it be awesome?)

I love the idea of a T-Shirt quilt especially since I have so many old Hanson shirts and shirts I’ve picked up from tourist places when going to see Hanson (I think I’d be more likely to part and allow those to be cut up than the Hanson ones.) but there is a bit of a twist on the shirt quilt in the book and it looks neat – but I’m not sure I could bring myself to do it. (It cuts up the images of the shirt and kind of intertwines them, looks nice, but again I think I’d rather the shirts all be relatively intact with their images if I were to ever do it.)

I received a free e-copy of this book in order to write this review. I was not otherwise compensated.
