Brings out the best in young children
John & Mary Douglas, Edmonds, WA
My daughter is 3 ½ and we have all the Preschool Power! Videos. They
are by far the most stimulating, educational and enjoyable videos for preschoolers
we hae found. We have noticed our daughter has been motivated creatively – she
loves to try her own version of many of the activities on the videos – i.e.,
playing with flowing scarves, mixing different colors with food coloring and
water, art projects with coffee filters and paint, making stars and snowflakes
using the fold + cut technique on the video, making fruit salad. My husband
even got all the ingredients for French bread listed on the video (at my daughter’s
request!) – and they have baked from scratch several times! In this day and age it is difficult to find the rare “gems” among
all the “junk” (frankly) out there. Preschool Power is
a rare find. It is fun, entertaining, stimulating, and brings
out the best in young children.
It is always their first choice
Bonnie Vanderpol, Klamath Falls, OR
Thank you so uch for giving me the opportunity to tell you of the joy Preschool
Power has given my 7 grand children – all under 9 years. It is
always their first choice. The tunes are catchy. I hear them
singing the songs and watch with great interest over and over – I only
ordered on to start but quickly ordered the full set. I have called several
times to see if there are new ones available but so far only 8 are rerun over
and over. I hope each child who sees these special programs will smile
as my precious little ones do!
THE hands down favorite!
Maria Tesoro, Dell Online Sales & Leasing
I wanted to let you know you have 5 die-hard fans at home ranging in age from
1-6 years. Two of them are my children and the three others are my sisters. We
discovered your shows in the library when my son was only 2. Lo and behold,
Preschool Power became a buzzword around our house. My son, Ryne, loed
it, found it absolutely entertaining, and when he started to talk, couldn’t
stop talking about them. We were constant visitors to the library only
because we couldn’t find your tapes in stores. My web-surfing
sister found you and has already ordered the shows much to the children’s
delight. Ryne is 6 now and his sister, Rachel, is 5. Disney programs come and
go, and so do all the others; but Preschool Power is THE hands down favorite Ryne
pretends he’s Kidar, and every now and then I’ll hear Rachel singing “hair,
hair, beautiful hair.”
I feel really great about Pre-School Power
Callie Wilson, RN, Olympia, WA
I have been so happy with the Preschool Power videos. I found them first
through our library and then bought four of them. I loaned them to a
little girl and her mother called and said “I’ll have to buy you
new ones, she won’t give them back!” So then we bought all 8 of
them. Both of my girls learned the jacket flip from your excellent video. They
are so proud. Chandra got interested in buckles from watching Blake. And
sometimes when her hands are clean, she holds them up and we say “—blinded
by the shine. (just like Blake.) Charis learned to cook from watching Preschool
Power. She started with bread, muffins and fruit salads. These are things
she saw on the video. Then she got interested in cooking other things – soups
and cakes and salads. Thank for for the excellent start.
As a parent, at first I thought I would not let my daughter watch TV. After
all, it is passive. Then we found some slow-paced and beautiful stories at
the library and I thought I would watch a little bit of TV with her when we
wanted to cuddle. Then, we found Pre-School Power! Well, we still
don[t watch much TV, but I feel really great about Pre-School Power. We
watch it together, and sometimes we have to stop the TV to practice jacket
flips Right Away! We want to know more about Blake and K’dar. How
are they doing now? We sign about 50 words and when K’dar signed
Twinkle Twinle my daughter copied him right away and now can do it too.”
*Surely some of the best quality children’s videos around
Kim Welborn, Cambridge MA
This is a letter of praise for your Preschool Power Videos Our family
came across them at our local library about two years ago and we have enjoyed
them so much that we wanted to own our own. They are surely some of the
best quality children’s videos around. Our children love them and
want to watch them over and over. These programs are just what children
really like! Thank you Concept Videos for making these shows for our children
and all the children. You’ve got a Real winner! What a
great way for them to learn.
New meaning to “quality programming
Scott, Angie, Jennifer and Stephanie Jamie
You have certainly shown our family a new meaning to “quality programming.” The
first time our girls saw your programs, they were hooked. The simplest
tasks were easily shown to them and they learned that they could do it. You
really went out of your way to see that they received the shows they dearly
love. Thank you for all you did for us. You have six (grandparents
included) very satisfied customers. The series of Preschool Power are
tops at our house and we would be glad to share this with others.
I was so impressed
Barbara S. Corriher, Director/teacher at Mt. Zion UCC Preschool, China Grove, NC
I first became familiar with the Preschool Power! Videos through my sister
and our local library. I was so impressed that I soon looked into ordering
the videos for the preschool where I am a teacher and the director. Truly,
that was money well spent. Each year the children enjoy watching the
Preschool Power! Videos. Each year at our preschool we have a week totally
devloted to the children and their self-esteem called “I am Special Week”. During
this week we show a Preschool Power! Program each day as part of our lesson
plans. The children love to see the many new things they can each learn
to do and the things we are capable of doing already. Our preschool
also uses the videos through the year at other times.
Each year we have parents comment about how their children talk about the Preschool Power! Videos and how many new things they believe they can do. I
guess in closing, I would say we love Preschool Power! And would recommend
it to any preschool program or parents of a preschooler for their home.
My daughter will not let me return them
John F. Kelly, Washington Post Staff Writer
Thanks for your letter and the copy of Preschool Power! You’re
right, Gwyneth loved them and now asks for “peeschool power, peeschool
power.” Her insistence is only slightly less annoying than her
Barney addiction, but neither one appears to be too dangerous and does seem
to be learning from them. She especially delights in pouring things
from one container to another. Since employees of The Post are not
allowed to accept anything from anyone, I’ve enclosed a check to cover
the cost of the programs, which my daughter will not let me return.
Has restored my faith in people and in business
Alicia Rentz, Lomita C
After my conversation with you 800 line, I put the defective video on a shelf
with intentions of mailing it when we returned from vacation. I suppose
it didn’t seem to important to me at the time. Today’s mail
delivery has shown me that I am much more important to you and your company. An
envelope containing a brochure, a check for postage AND a new video has restored
my faith in people and in business. What impressed me most was the speed
and professionalism with which you handled my complaint. Thank you so
much for that.
The new video is flawless. My three year old son will be so happy to
be able to watch it again. (He had just asked about it last night and
had to settle for a Barney video). I will certainly be purchasing other
videos from your company and will tell all my friends with preschoolers of
your wonderful business ethics, as well as the quality of the content in Preschool
Sarah Gewanter, MSW, LCSW , Director, The Counselling Center, Westport CT
I am pleased to be able to recommend wholeheartedly the wonderful sieres of
Preschool Power. We have found them to be very helpful not only with
pre-schoolers (who seem to love to watch them for hours!) but also the population
of special needs children that we work with. We have recommended them
to parents, teachers and other social workers. In fact the way we learned
about them was through a parent we were working with. We work with
all ages and many different populations but I have found these programs to
be especially helpful with the PDD (Pervasive Developmental Disorder) or autistic
spectrum children well into grammar school age. Often these children
may be very intelligent in certain areas but delayed in others especially social
skills. They become easily overwhelmed by other children. Therefore
being able to gain skills through the videos provides a non-threatening method
of learning. They are also often hypersensitive to sound and so learn
more easily through visual stimuli. We sometimes use these videos in
conjunction with our Auditory Integration Training treatment program with very
Super learning-thru-fun programs
Gina Mazzola, Aiken, SC
I can’t say enough about Preschool Power! I’ve managed to
find four of the tapes in three different places. Dan you send me the
other four? My 3-year-old is just wild about them. These are super
learning-thru-fun-shows which not only captivate my daughter, but help enhance
her ‘I can do it’ attitude!
A real hit with both adults and children
Lisa A. Fullerton, Fleet Post Office
I am so impressed with these Preschool Power videos that I have actually used
them as training for my Family Home Care Providers. These videos do not ‘talk
down’ to children, and they encourage confidence and self-reliance. Especially
popular seem to be the kitchen activities. I, myself, sometimes am astounded
that such young children can accomplish so much! I encourage you
to keep producing these programs – they are a real hit with both adults
and children, and in the face of a major void in children’s programming
they are a welcome sight!”
Already learned to put on her coat!
Alice Pautz, Harrisburg, PA
We love Prechool Power! We have a 5 ½, a 4-year-old and one only
20 months and they all love it! The little one has already learned
to put on her own coat!
Perfect gift for a grandchild Violet Houldin, Oceanside, CA
My daughter’s three and our-year-old boys went wild about the first
Preschool Power set they got so I gave them all the rest! Where could
you find a more perfect gift for a grandchild? It’s fun while learning!”
Empowers children with wonder and confidence
Sharon Friedman, West Bloomfield, MI
My son Gordon Greenley watched the first four Preschool Powers or a whole year. And
since I ordered the other videos over a y ear ago when he was three, he’s
been watching all eight and still loves them. They’re so good,
and he’s learned so much from them. Preschool Power! Empowers children
with wonder and confidence!
The children relate to them and just love them
Saundra Edmond, Burgettstown, PA
I teach a preschool class, and use the Preschoolpower! Programs all the time. The
children relate to them, and just love them!"
That’s all she wants to watch, and all the time!
Linda Rainone, Londenderry, NH
I borrowed a copy of Preschool Power! From my neighbor, and my nearly-3-year-old
really latched on to it. It’s amazing: that’s all she wants
to watch, and all the time! She really loves those little children. And
I discovered that she learned to put on her jacket – all by herself!
They ALL loved them!
Barbara Marmora, Valois, NY
My class of preschoolers is a mix of children, some with special needs. They
ALL loved the first Preschool Power programs. And so did I! I would
like to order the other sets!
I’m a Preschool Power kid!
Karen L. Berlin, Herndon, VA
I’m coming back for more Preschool Power! We got the starter set for
a birthday gift and my kids are just enthralled by them. They like to
watch kids do grown-up things! And every time they master a new skill now,
they say “I’m a Preschool Power kid!
Gail Maryes, Bayside, NY
My child is autistic and this show is a God-send! I cannot provide the
experience for him of doing things over and over again like I’m supposed
to do. So he has learned them from Preschool Power!
She quieted right down and watched fascinated
Debobrah A. Bailey, Bothell, WA
When my 15-month-old woke up cranky from her nap one day I turned on the TV
and there was Preschool Power! She just quieted right down and watched-fascinated
by all those wonderful little kids. Now we prefer to use Preschool Power
to TV. We limit the amount of TV our children watch and consider these videos
Takes the boxes to bed with him
Deborah A. Bourne, Jackson, NJ
My kid loves the Preschool Power vids and he’s learned so much rom them! He’ been
watching them for over two years and still takes the boxes to bed with
We really hit the jackpot!
Sandra Simek, Preschool Teacher, Rockville, MD
With this series we really hit the jackpot! It as something the kids
adored because it was all peers, and they learn more from their peers than
from anyone else.”
He’s convinced he can do anything
Haydee Wagner, NY
It’s a wonderful series! My 3-year-old likes to watch all of them
in a row now and has, in my opinion gained so much self-confidence he’s
convinced he can do anything.
I don’t feel guilty
Kate and Mary McCue, Newton Square, PA
My daughter Kate is 2 ½ and was recently diagnosed with autism. She
enjoys imitating the children and all the programs have taught Kate without
being too difficult in content and speech. I don’t feel guilty
putting on a video which has so much to offer.
They’re absolutely unique!
Dory Arbel, New York, NY
My daughter was only 18 months when I ordered our first copy of Preschool
Power! She loved it so much we kept getting more of them for her ‘til
we had the whole set. They’re so different from anything else
out there. They’re absolutely unique! She’s three now,
and she still loves Preschool Power!
They learn a great deal
Sue McCombs, Teacher Utah School for the Deaf
We are teachers of the hearing-imparied and now have monetary means to purchae
educational materials for teaching purposes. Our hearing-impaired preschoolers
learn a great deal from the Preschool Power! Videos and we would like to order
a complete set
My two-year-old is wildly enthusiastic about them
Amy J. Fisher, Haverhill, M
I bought the first Preschool Power! In Texas, and the second in Florida, but
I can’t find any in Massachusetts. My two-year old is wildly
enthusiastic about them and has learned to do so many things. No matter
how bad a mood she’s in, I put on a Preschool Power! And she calms down
immediately. Please send me the other programs.
I’m ecstatic about them
Ron Sirard, Head, TeeterTime Day Care, Gainesville, GA (192 children)

My two-year-old daughters used to cry
Sherri Jones, Bellville, TX

I teach a special needs class
Evan Lipman, NY, NY
I teach a special needs class and a teacher friend of mine told me how good

It’s a joy to me and him
Gina Hookey, Princeton, NJ
You know they (autistic children) like to watch people and he’s beginning
to imitate some of the things on the programs. He laughs a lot at the
kids. It’s a joy to me and to him!

I’ll bet they’ve seen it 500 times. My kids are 2 and
6 and they both love it!
