For the first 15 months of her life our daughter has only watched and enjoyed one video Baby Einstein - Baby Monet - Discovering the Seasons which is perfectly acceptable, since we rarely have her watch television. However, there are times, like on long drives when it is nice to have something that can capture her attention and still have a redeeming value. Juno Jr. "The Day the Music Stopped" has made it onto our playlist!

The video combines semi-animated puppets with some live action animals and kids. The story is very creative and incorporates a very informative lesson on music. Juno and her friend must bring music back to Harmony Falls. They are able to do this by finding melody from local birds, rhythm from a train, and harmony from some singing frogs. Once they combine these elements they are able to bring the music back to Harmony Falls. Along the way various musical instruments are *hidden* in the landscape. The shingles on a roof are piano keys, a chimney is shaped like a cello, and so on.

While the story is wildly imaginative (visually) and informative it isn't worth much if it is unable to capture our daughter's interest. I am happy to report that our daughter danced and cheered at various spots in the video. I can't say that she sat down and watched it non-stop (hey, she is 15 months old - if she stopped for 45 minutes for ANY reason other than sleeping we would be concerned) she did enjoy the puppets and the music. It rates as a success in my book!

Final Verdict- The market for children's videos is very saturated, but I would highly recommend giving Juno jr a try - I know that we will be buying a 2nd video!

A great deal of imagination went into this children's DVD. The puppets and live action kids and animals are the characters in a story about Juno and her friends who are out to bring music back to the fictitious town of Harmonia Springs. The story incorporates all sorts of rhythms, music and harmony that are found in everyday life and the out of doors that allows the characters to bring the music back. The puppets, Juno, her brother Rai-Rai, their pet cat, caterpillar and rabbit among others, are all imaginatively created and colorful. Lots of action and lots of music make this an interesting program, even for adults, but especially for children.

A mom, Belinda Takahashi, Ph.D is the Emmy winning producer and composer of the music and program which is all original. The DVD includes several authentic sounds and rhythms that are played by real orchestras, so the listeners are exposed to and can begin to appreciate the sounds that are more than just cartoony stuff. I like that it's a little more sophisticated than most kid's DVD's but still fun and cute.

Vine Customer Review of Free Product ( What's this? )
My three year old son first became acquainted with the Juno Baby videos on YouTube, so when I saw an opportunity to review a Juno DVD I jumped at the chance. Juno Jr., a slightly more advanced version, follows the adventures of young Juno (a little girl with dark pigtails) and her baby brother Rai Rai (in a diaper and cape).

The show begins with Juno and Rai Rai in their bedroom, portrayed as puppets, with her pet cat, bunny, and a caterpillar in a jar. The three pets are real, but when Juno and Rai Rai climb aboard an imaginary train to Harmonia Springs, cat, bunny, and caterpillar transform into puppets too.

Juno and Rai Rai are the protagonists, serving as proxies for the children watching the show. Cat is polite (unlike any cat I know), Caterpillar is the brainy one, and Bunny is the crazy one who does rash things like press the giant red button that says "do not press!" on Caterpillar's Shush Machine. It seems Caterpillar really wanted some peace and quiet in front of the library, but like every mad scientist his device eventually turns against him. Harmonia Springs goes silent!

Our motley crew then goes on a quest to restore music to the Springs by searching out melody (tweeting birds), rhythm (the sound of the train), and harmony (musical frogs). The Juno series makes a point of explaining how music works and reinforcing that music is all around us, and this episode stays true to form. Throughout there's some colorful but simple computer graphics, segments that encourage children to interact by answering questions or dancing, and of course a beautiful musical score.

If there's a criticism of the show it's that it skews slightly female, as Juno is the protagonist and there are more girls than boys shown dancing during the interactive segments. That's a minor quibble in an otherwise excellent product for teaching children about music. My boy watched this three times in two days, including the extras.

My Daughter loves Juno and isn't one to stop for many videos. She's 4 1/2 and aside from Little Einsteins she really won't sit through an entire episode of anything most days, shes never been the boob tube type. But I am happy to report Juno made her very picky cut, lasting almost the entire run time in which she remained in the room to play and still paid half attention (she usually is off to her room by then). She loves the puppets (having long grown bored with Sesame Street), and doesn't find them scary at all (as she has with most puppets not on Sesame Street. I really liked it as well, especially the colors, very nice on the eyes overall!
