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:
We took the swag bag home and started to make our way through the original, orchestral music that was integrated into toys, CDs, DVDs and more. My girls are 3 and 5--perfect ages for this line of educational/musical experiences. But don't wait to bring Juno into your home, the line has offerings for children, 12 months to preschool age.
Juno and her puppet friends sing, play and learn in a series of vignettes created to instill a lifelong love of music in children. Featuring music performed by a live orchestra, Juno Baby addresses overcoming childhood fears, the importance of friendship, problem solving skills, and creating music from things found in the world around you. Sing along in English, Spanish and French. These award-winning offerings are designed for children, 12 months and older.
Geared toward your growing preschooler, Juno Jr. expands on the Emmy Award-winning Juno Baby line with beautiful, original, orchestral music, rich story lines and a deep emphasis on music education and appreciation.
