Critics and Experts Love Preschool Power!
In our experience, it's nearly unprecedented for a children's video series to receive the number of prestigious awards and glowing reviews that Preschool Power! has won. The series has taken first place in virtually every children's video prize category including Parent's Choice, Parents Magazine and the Coalition for Quality Children's Programming.
National media writers like the Washington Post, the Chicago Tribune, Billboard and many more rave about the high production values. And the early childhood education and library publications praise it for its effectiveness.

I am so impressed with these Preschool Power videos that I have actually used them as training for my Family Home Care Providers. These videos do not 'talk down' to children, and they encourage confidence and self-reliance. Especially popular seem to be the kitchen activities. I, myself, sometimes am astounded that such young children can accomplish so much! I encourage you to keep producing these programs – they are a real hit with both adults and children, and in the face of a major void in children's programming they are a welcome sight!"

We love Prechool Power! We have a 5 ½, a 4-year-old and one only 20 months and they all love it! The little one has already learned to put on her own coat!"

I teach a preschool class, and use the Preschoolpower! Programs all the time. The children relate to them and just love them...

I borrowed a copy of Preschool Power! From my neighbor, and my nearly-3-year-old really latched on to it. It's amazing: that's all she wants to watch, and all the time! She really loves those little children. And I discovered that she learned to put on her jacket – all by herself!"
---- Linda Rainone, Londenderry, NH
When my 15-month-old woke up cranky from her nap one day I turned on the TV and there wasPreschool Power! She just quieted right down and watched-fascinated by all those wonderful little kids. Now we prefer to use Preschool Power to TV. We limit the amount of TV our children watch and consider these videos valuable."
--Debobrah A. Bailey, Bothell, WA
My kid loves the Preschool Power vids and he's learned so much rom them! He' been watching them for over two years and still takes the boxes to bed with him!"
--Deborah A. Bourne, Jackson, NJ
It's a wonderful series! My 3-year-old likes to watch all of them in a row now and has, in my opinion gained so much self-confidence he's convinced he can do anything."
-- Haydee Wagner, NY
My daughter was only 18 months when I ordered our first copy of Preschool Power! She loved it so much we kept getting more of them for her 'til we had the whole set. They're so different from anything else out there. They're absolutely unique! She's three now, and she still lovesPreschool Power!"

I'll bet they've seen it 500 times. My kids are 2 and 6 and they both love it!"

My 2 ½ year old grandson doesn't like cartoons, but he just loves the Preschool Power! Shows I sent him. Please send him the other four"
--Dorothy L. Otten, Los Angeles, CA
My two-year old daughters used to cry when the kids on the first Preschool Power video waved goodbye, they loved them so. We ordered three more a couple of months ago, and now we'd like to order the rest of the series."
