"Move Over Oprah!"

Are the first words of a review in the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio, 2002 Edition for "Pinatta's View- A Trip to the Dentist" a children's video that received the Oppenheim Toy Portfolio Gold Seal Award 2002.

"Pinatta's View" stars Pinatta, a quirky talk show host who takes young children on a trip to the dentist with original music, puppets and a child's point of view to help them develop a sense of confidence and familiarity about this often stressful first time experience. This video is geared for the 2-5 year old who has never been to the dentist or has forgotten what their last visit was like.

Shooting from the unique 40 inch perspective of a child, "Pinatta's View" presents new experiences for children, from a seldom seen perspective- their own. This initial production for Boggle-Goggle Enterprises is the first in a planned series of videos dealing with a variety of challenging first time experiences.  At a time when children are dealing with so many frightening things in their lives, Boggle Goggle believes that hands on practice and dramatic play can significantly improve a child's ability to cope with stressful, everyday, first time experiences.

"Pinatta's View" was recently selected by the Meg's Gifts program to be included in its charitable package to children in hospitals throughout the United States. The videos selected were chosen for their ability to address the emotional needs of hospitalized children and help them deal with fear, anger, guilt and boredom while enhancing their cognitive and emotional needs.  "Pinatta's View- A Trip to the Dentist" is also endorsed by Kids First and the Dove Foundation.
