The Juno Company, one of the country’s most innovative children’s media companies creating products that encourage music appreciation in young children, has announced a full scale launch of its entire line of Juno Baby products as well as the launch of the new Juno Jr. line at legendary toy retailer, FAO Schwarz. All Juno Baby DVDs, CDs, plush, books and apparel, as well as the latest line – Juno Jr., are now available. The Juno Company brands are currently featured throughout the store, and The Juno Company will host a series of Saturday events throughout the month, including puppet shows and costumed character appearances.
Juno Baby is an Emmy Award-winning lifestyle brand whose DVDs are part of a larger line of children’s products that seek to inspire a lifelong love of music in children from babies and toddlers to preschoolers. Founder, mom and composer Belinda Takahashi’s original music is performed by live orchestral musicians and paired with a cast of endearing puppet characters created and performed by the talented hands behind some of your favorite Muppet and Sesame Street characters*. Juno Baby is helping to inspire and nurture the minds of children through beautiful music.
Juno Jr., the latest line of products from The Juno Company, is geared toward growing preschoolers and expands on the Emmy Award-winning Juno Baby line with beautiful, original, orchestral music, rich story lines and a deep emphasis on music education and appreciation. Through their journeys, Juno and her puppet friends learn new musical concepts as they take a magical, musical adventure to the imaginary world of Harmonia Springs.
Starting today, the iconic FAO Schwarz Fifth Avenue store in New York is the first retailer to offer the Juno Jr. series, including two DVDs and three CDs from the highly anticipated launch of the new product line. The store also features the entire Juno Baby line of products, and will be releasing an additional Juno Jr. DVD late 2010.
“FAO Schwarz is a brand synonymous with quality and innovation, and we are honored to launch our unique assortment of Juno Baby and Juno Jr. products at FAO Schwarz and on FAO.com,” says Barrett Cohn, CEO of The Juno Company. “We invite New York City residents and visitors to help us celebrate the launch of Juno Baby and Juno Jr. at FAO Schwarz Fifth Avenue and enjoy the very special kick-off events each Saturday in September.”
As with all Juno Company products, the Juno Baby and the Juno Jr. line are both part of The Juno Company’s One for All Program. For every Juno product purchased, the company donates a very special music education DVD to a child in need. With the strong belief that beautiful music enriches lives, and the importance of instilling the value of giving to those less fortunate, Juno Baby has partnered with the National Head Start Association with the mission to bring beautiful, orchestral music to children in the U.S., with ultimate goal of giving 1 million DVDs to children in need.
