Every parent views their childâ€™s education as an important part of life. As satisfying as it is to teach our children in everyday situations, letâ€™s face it, we all get a little busy sometimes. It is during these busy times that educational tools can assist us in teaching our children. I do not endorse exclusive use of DVDs, TV or computer programs to teach children. My humble opinion is that real life and hands-on activities are the best ways our children absorb what we are trying to teach them. However, educational TV and computer use are definitely tools todayâ€™s parents appreciate.
Recently, we received two complimentary Brainy Baby DVDs to review – The ABCs and the Shapes and Colors DVDs. These were cute DVDs filled with real children and babies. They were wholesome, lively and both of them did a very good job presenting the information being taught to the children. There was lots of repetition, which children love as it helps them retain the material better.
In each of the DVDs there were not only real children, but real objects, including healthy food and animals. While animation was used, it was minimal compared to many other products on the market. Our children love animals so they showed a lot of excitement when their favorites came onto the screen.
The music and songs used were cute and catchy, keeping the childrenâ€™s attention very well and ones that most parents wonâ€™t mind listening to, as well.
The Brainy Baby DVDs are ones children will love to watch time and again during the busy moments in life. Children over the ages of 5 or 6 will find them cute, but will probably tire easily if they already know the material being taught. They are best suited for children ages 1 to 4 or 5.
