Is eye patching your child turning into a daily battle? Then join Princess, Patty and Peter (The Eye Patch Puppets) as they take you through the story of Princess's visit to the eye doctor to discover she has amblyopia (Lazy Eye). Princess's unwillingness to wear an eye patch and how Patty and Peter (who already wear eye patches) show her how fun it is and all the great things she can do with her eye patch on. They laugh and sing their way through the video along with the Bjort's (these furry head little eye patched creatures). There is also a Patch Pledge Promise that Princess recites along with the Bjort's to your child as she tells them that they need their eye patch on in order to be part of their special eye patch gang. I have had so many parents email me after receiving the DVD to tell me how much their child loves it.
Our Story: When my son Joshua was first diagnosed with Amblyopia and we got a prescription for glasses and bought the eye patch we were clueless on how to get him to wear it. When I asked the doctor she just said “I don’t know, but just get him to wear it.” After many days of struggling with him to wear the eye patch and him leaving it on for only 30 seconds I was very frustrated. Then one day a man came on a cartoon wearing an eye patch and my son who originally wanted nothing to do with the patch took it out of the drawer and handed it to me to put it on him. I didn’t realize at first why he wanted it on, but was very happy and put it on him immediately. Then he went back into the other room and started trying to dance and copy the man on tv with the patch on. I was jaw dropped when I saw this. Then I thought to myself, I wonder if I can take our camcorder and make a quick little movie on it to play on our TV with puppets with eye patches on for him to copy. Well it worked great and I didn’t have any problems anymore with him. Then after researching the internet I realized that there were so many other kids out there going through the same thing as my son and that’s when I decided to make this available to all kids. So I sat down at my computer and typed up a rough draft of the script and my sister put in her two cents and then I made all the puppets, backgrounds, etc. and we hired a production company to film it.
