Save $10 on you Juno Order*

The world of Juno is magical, colorful and most important--musical. We learned about the musician, mom and Co-Founder, Belinda Takahashi, Ph.D., at the FAO launch event on 2010.

Belinda, a professional musician (Oberlin Conservatory with a bachelor'??s degree in Music) and her partner Adam Adelman dreamed up Juno-- a six-year-old girl with a passion for music. While practicing the piano in her bedroom, Juno and her two-year-old brother, Rai Rai, are transported to the imaginary, magical, musical world of Harmonia Springs. Trees are made of cellos, cars are shaped like bass clefs and lamp posts like French horns, street signs flash '??Waltz'? and the train that takes them on their journey is made up entirely of musical instruments.

Juno involves more than incredible orchestral music--they've brought in the world'??s best puppet makers to create a fun and witty visual experience that works back to the music.

All CDs, books and DVDs feature a cast of lovable puppets created by the talented hands behind some of your favorite Muppet and Sesame Street characters, which interact with children, along with original music composed for and performed by live orchestral musicians.

Soon the characters in the series (Juno, Bunny, Indie, etc. ) will become beloved friends in your family. Take a look at our favorite toy:
