Movie Reviews

Chicka Chicka Boom Boom -- the DVD**** 5 Stars!!!
Pam Tee | 03/23/2005
(5 out of 5 stars)

"My kids (boy and girl; 3 and 5) and I really like this DVD and the really funny thing is that we like the `additional' material even more than we like the main attraction which is not read but sung to a Caribbean beat.

Besides CCBB the other stories are:
Trashy Town
Rosie's Walk
The Caterpillar and the Polliwog
The Foolish Frog (by Pete Seeger)
Joey Runs Away
Changes Changes

In Trashy Town two cute rats follow the work of Mr. Gilly as he roams around Trashy Town cleaning it up with the help of his garbage truck. We were not familiar with this story before but the lyrics and topic are marvelously catchy.
"Dump it in... Smash it down... Drive around the trashy town."

Rosie's Walk is about a chicken that goes about her business in absolute ignorance of the pursuing fox and his travails. The artwork is marvelous and reminds me of colonial stitchwork.

The Caterpillar and the Polliwog and the Foolish Frog are in an older animation style, think early Sesame Street, but the stories are very good and Pete Seeger can really put out a fine toe-tapping tune.

Joey Runs Away is a story about how a young kangaroo runs away to find a `room' he won't have to clean up. All the other animals want to `rent' the pouch from Joey's mom, but of course she refuses. Joey and mom are reunited when Joey realizes that there is no place like home and hearth, and besides his room wasn't *that* messy.

Changes Changes is the wordless story of two little block people who make and remake their world each time out of the same set of blocks. Through adversity and hardship they persevere with love and creativity to form a family.

Simply a great collection of stories. We highly recommend this DVD."

"I bought this movie last year and since I bought it, it has been viewed a minimum of 50 times. It is ideal for kids aged 2 - 7. Many times the kids want to watch it over again (and over again and over again). I dare anybody to not enjoy watching this video with some kids and singing along. Chicka Chicka BOOM BOOM!"
The most adorable video out there!

"What a fun collection of cute stories! "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom" has little kid letters (lower case letters) climbing up a coconut tree and then falling out of it & getting hurt (of course, the upper-case adults come to their rescue!) is such a fun way for kids to learn the alphabet! I actually had this particular story on auto-repeat for the longest time. The song is cute and the story fun & sweet. My 3-year old daughter also loves "The Foolish Frog" which is about a man who makes up a song about a show-off frog who in the end, literally blows himself up with pride. This story, like "Chicka Chicka Boom Boom," is fun & has a catchy tune), "Trashy Town" which is about two mice who go along for a ride in a trashman's truck for the day and narrate his activities is also a fun story. There are a few other stories on this DVD which my daughter could watch & listen to all day if we let her. If you have a toddler, this is a must-have video! Even though it's been mentioned a couple times in other reviews already, I'll mention it again: the songs on this DVD won't grate on your nerves so it's grown-up-friendly."
Toddler loves this..and mom doesn't mind it either!

"Grandma bought this video for my 2 1/2 year old son. He absolutely loves it! The stories are interesting and colorful-and short enough to keep his attention. He loves Chicka Chicka Boom Boom (my favorite too) and talks about the caterpillar and polliwog who "change into something else when I grow up." We went to the library and got a few of the books-he turns the pages and "reads" along with the video. The stories also make the books more interesting. I doubt I'd have checked out "Trashy Town" from the library without this video-but it's really a fun book for my son. This is one video that I don't mind watching over and over-especially if my son can get a head start on reading with the books."
