VERY FUNNY FOR KIDS AND GROWNUPS ALIKE

"Grover is at his best in this hysterical video. With his typical humor, he teaches us how to eat more wisely. There are alot of great inside jokes for the parents, too. The "Planet Storybook" restaurant he works on is a funny spoof of "Planet Hollywood", complete with memorabelia (from stories, of course). My 2 1/2 year old loves this video, and has learned alot from it. I bought it for her because she's a picky eater. I think it has helped alot -- she's more willing to try new foods now (not that she always finishes them!)I highly reccommend this video! Buy it for yourself, even if you don't have a picky eater in your house! It's that funny!"

"I bought this video for my 19-month-old son who is a Grover fan. (Note to previous reviewer - Elmo is the red one - this video is hosted by Grover.) Although he still finds it somewhat entertaining, the songs are a little few and far between and it's pretty preachy about trying lots of types of foods. Unless you're having this problem with your child, I'd recommend something else."
Let's Eat a big hit!

"My son was 21 months when his aunt bought him this video and he loves it! Like a previous reviewer, I'll admit there is fewer muscial puppet numbers than other Sesame Street favorites, but truly my son adores this video! He gets very animated when watching it. He's also learning the names of his vegatables faster, and when I'm cooking them he makes the connection, and sometimes even gets a little excited. (I wonder how long that will last) Anyway, what's the harm in singing vegatables and fruit? I have no reservations in recommending this one."
Planet Storybook Awaits!

"Remeber Grover the Waiter and his chubby blue customer? This video is a great chance to visit them again - Grover has "worked his way up in the food business" to become a Planet Storybook (read Hollywood) waiter and change the unhealthy eating habits of his favorite customer. Along the way are lots of gags about storybook characters (Grover trips over Jack Be Nimble's candlestick, for instance - and the restaurant is decorated with memorobilia like Cinderella's glass slipper) Very cute.I think I'm not cool enough to enjoy the song clips, but if you and your kids enjoy spoofs, you'll like them: "Cereal Girl," Cookie monster rapping about "Healthy Food," and bologna, cheese, and bread singing "Telly's Lunch" (Brady Bunch Theme) I liked "Blueberry Mouth," a Leon Redbone style (?) tune about blueberry picking. I don't know that it made any difference in eating behavior with my son, but he's a pretty good eater anyway. He enjoyed it, though: particularly the singing broccholi."
