Juno’s Full Orchestra, Stories and Characters

I’m a huge believer in music education and appreciation for children which is why I’m so excited to tell you all about Juno because we’re LOVING it at our house. I don’t know of another company like it. It’s beautiful, originally composed music, plus engaging stories and lovable characters. It’s great for kids under five. (Although JJ still love it at age six.)

Music

To me, the songs sound more like Broadway musicals than a kid songs. (Thank you!) All the music is originally composed by Belinda Takahashi, Ph.D., co-founder and Chief Creative Officer, and is performed by an orchestra – not a synthesizer. The orchestra sound helps children begin to identify different musical instruments and appreciate their unique sounds.

Cast of characters

Juno is an adorable pigtail girl who conducts, plays piano and does anything musical. She loves her baby brother, Rai Rai. Her friends include Bunny, Buzz, Indie and Murphy. JJ plays with her stuffed Juno and Bunny dolls (see above) but she would love Rai Rai – who she knows from the movies and thinks is super cute.

Movies

The website says, “Juno Baby addresses overcoming childhood fears, the importance of friendship, problem solving skills, and creating music from things found in the world around you.”

The website says, “Juno is a six-year-old girl with a passion for music. While practicing the piano in her bedroom, Juno and her two-year-old brother, Rai Rai, are transported to the imaginary, magical, musical world of Harmonia Springs. Trees are made of cellos, cars are shaped like bass clefs and lamp posts like French horns, street signs flash “Waltz” and the train that takes them on their journey is made up entirely of musical instruments.”
