Capezio & Wisharoo Duckle Dance Sweepstakes {And Giveaway!}

If you know a child who loves to dance you will LOVE this sweepstakes and giveaway! Wisharoo Park and Capezio have teamed up to offer the Duckle Dance Sweepstakes that is intended to encourage children to ‘get moving’ and help them build confidence and self-esteem, encourage innovation, and above all have fun.

To participate, parents simply video their preschool kids doing the Duckle Dance and then enter those videos via downloads to their facebook or YouTube accounts for a chance to win one of twenty Capezio and Wisharoo Prize packages or one of five $500 Dance Scholarships!

You can watch a video of the Duckle Dance on Youtube which features favorite Wisharoo Park characters Ranger Rosey and DanDan and Della Duckle dancing along with real life kids. Once familiar with the dance, kids are invited  to follow the steps or create and perform their very own version of all or any part of, the Duckle Dance — either to the ballet or tap music provided at the entry site and have their parents capture their performance on video. Be sure to keep in mind that although the promotional Duckle Dance video teaches specific dance steps, the Duckle Dance Sweepstakes Presented by Capezio and Wisharoo Park is all about fun and dance submissions are completely open to individual interpretation. (In other words: If your child can’t dance it’s ok…it’s all about having fun!)

Once captured on video parents can enter their child’s performance in the Duckle Dance Sweepstakes Presented by Capezio and Wisharoo Park for a chance to win the special prizes and/or dance scholarships provided by Capezio and Wisharoo Park.   To enter parents simply upload the video to their facebook or YouTube account, and then visit where they submit the Facebook or YouTube video link as part of the easy entry process.

Interested in entering? Hurry! Videos must be in by September 1st, 2011!


One reader will win a Capezio/Wisharoo prize pack with a retail value worth over $100!

Wisharoo Park Review and Giveaway (5 Winners)

Do you have a preschooler? If so, you need to check out Wisharoo Park. Wisharoo Park is, according to the website, “a multimedia edutainment series designed to help children ages 3-6 recognize and appreciate their own individuality. With its technology-based curriculum, Wisharoo Park helps children discover and understand their own personal strengths and in doing so, develop greater self-esteem and a positive self-image. Unique among hundreds of preschool programs, Wisharoo Park is specifically focused on teaching social skills and building self-esteem.”

Wisharoo Park’s website is full of fun for children and parents to do together. There are games to play, videos to watch, and activities to do offline. Some of my favorite activities are: “Quiet Monkey, Noisy Monkey” in which children learn about where they can be loud and where they need to be quiet and also the “Politeness Party” where children practice saying “please” and “thank you”.

There are also Wisharoo Park DVD’s. Jacob really enjoyed watching the ones we received for review. I like them because they teach social skills. As many of you know, my boys have sensory issues, and they are still learning what appropriate behavior in social settings looks like. I like that these episodes really focus on and model correct social behavior.



2 Grand Prize winners will receive: a Wisharoo Park 2-disc DVD and 6 Wish Star finger puppet sets

3 Runner Up Prize winners will receive: 6 Wish Star finger puppets
