NCircle Entertainment, Hit Entertainment & Fisher Price – Mike the Knight DVD, Activity Book & Toy Set Review and Giveaway
This has probably one of my kids' favorite reviews to date! NCircle Entertainment and Hit Entertainment are announcing the release the DVD launch of their popular medieval, CG-animated Nick Jr. series, Mike the Knight™. I had never seen Mike the Knight so this was also a treat for this mom. My kiddos have watched the “Mike the Knight: Knight in Training,” DVD at least 5 times within 48 hours of opening it. In addition to this great little DVD, we also received a pretty sweet Mike the Knight activity book, and a Fisher-Price Mike the Knight Sword and Shield. (The shield and sword has elicited several fights between my son and daughter.)
"Featuring five fun-and-learning-filled adventures, "Mike the Knight: Knight in Training" finds Mike on missions to serve and protect the Kingdom of Glendragon. Whether it's locating the perfect birthday surprise for his sister Evie, or helping others find their way back home, every day is an adventure with Mike and his friends! The all-new Glendragon Matching Game, as well as Meet Mike’s Friends! Music Videos and a karaoke version of the theme song are also included. ~ NCircle Entertainment
What I absolutely loved about this little package is that my daughter immediately fell in love with it. Even though I had given the toys to my son, she thought they were the best thing ever. I'm all for gender-neutral toys and shows, and while this I think is slightly geared more toward boys, it didn't phase her in the slightest. She wanted to be a knight, and fight dragons, and live in a castle. I love anything that expands her imagination and introduces her to new concepts of play and pretend. Both of my kids chased after the dog with the sword, and they even played together - one using the shield and one using the sword.
The activity from Simon & Schuster Children’s Publishing book has lots of great things to do, include reading along with character introductions, connect the dots, pictures to color, and drawing prompts that encourage your children to use their imagination. The middle even has a poster that the kids can take out (or that the adults can help remove) and hang on their walls. Unfortunately, mine thought this was too good to wait for mommy's help and it ended up in pieces all over the floor. Oops. They're very destructive if you can't tell.
Mike the Knight is a show I would much prefer my children enjoying over various others on TV. I am so glad we were finally introduced to it through this review. I know this will be something my kids will enjoy for several more years, and I think I now have some more Christmas and birthday gift ideas!
