In preparation for the filming of Little Pim DVDs 4, 5, and 6, we held a casting call yesterday in our Manhattan offices. Our loft was flooded with the most adorable babies, toddlers and preschoolers. Toddlers, crawlers, and walkers mingled and drank juice boxes in our waiting area, turned into play room. As the kids waited their turn, they sampled our soon-to-be-released Little Pim flash cards and made works of art from Little Pim Coloring pages.
When it was time, the children and their parents took their turn playing in our mock set, outfitted with beautiful toys and furniture by PLAN Toys, one of my favorite kid companies.
Jolene, the production supervisor, has an incredible knack for getting kids to relax in front of the camera. A few minutes with her and the little ones were playing with blocks, throwing tea parties, making faces to express a number of different emotions (one of our new DVDs is called "Happy, Sad, and Silly") with adorable results.
So many cute and talented kids came out and we all had a great time. It will be tough to narrow it down for our shoot! Thanks to all the parents and kids who turned up.
