Itty Bitty Heart Beats...we do things from the Heart~!!

Leonardo Da Vinci believed the best way to learn is by discovering truth from the inside. So he invented the expression "learning by heart." This is the inspiration behind itty bitty HeartBeats, an animated musical television series designed to entertain and educate young children in a magical world called Heartland, where everything is done from the heart. 

Through colorful animation and irresistible music, children will experience the adventures of the itty bitty HeartBeats, featuring CoolHeart, his sister SweetHeart, and their little brother BabyHeart. Every week, these tiny, adorable, multi-hued characters face their problems, learning that love is an action, and that positive thinking will solve any problem. 

To help them on their journey, they can always count on the sage advice of WiseHeart, the encouragement of MamaHeart and PapaHeart, and the antics of their colorful friends, KookyHeart, GiggleHeart, HeartAche and DreamyHeart. 

Recent events have changed our world… and the way our children see it. According to the National Association of School Psycholologists, during "these times of upheaval, uncertainty and stress," we must teach each child "to be peaceful and loving to himself and others…The more loving, peaceful, calming and spiritual you can make your children's environment…the more empowered, joyful, mentally healthy and hopeful your child will become." This may be the most valuable thing we can teach our children: to learn and trust what their hearts have to teach them. The itty bitty HeartBeats do just that, reminding us to always do things from the heart.

So remember, HeartLand is only a dream away…

 My Thoughts~!!

I couldn't agree with the statement that the Itty Bitty Heart Beat creators imagined when they created this new series.  "We do things from the Heart" is the ONE message that we should ALWAYS be teaching our youngsters!!  

I believe that children SHOULD learn the concepts of helping, caring, sharing and all those groovy morals that children ought to be taught.  As a matter of fact, there are QUITE a few adults who could learn something from the Itty Bitty Heart Beat series...this world of ours is in serious need of love, peace, and caring for our fellow humans!

My kids were enthralled with these characters after watching the DVD, it was the number one requested DVD of the week!  The imagery in the DVD was phenomenal, with loads of colours and interesting antics of the characters!  The Heart Beat kids were very likeable and easy to relate to and their messages are always wholesome and pure.

I would give this series a five out of five stars for being a wonderful concept, with rich, vibrating characters and colours and a meaningful message for all to share!

And I would LOVE to share it with all of YOU, my wonderful Mad Moosers~!!

The folks at Itty Bitty Heart Beats and Mad Moose Mama would love for you to WIN an opportunity to check out The Itty Bitty Heart Beats for your VERY self~!!
