Here is another gift idea for those in desiring a new entertaining, yet educational DVD set. So Smart! Productions and Echo Bridge Entertainment have partnered together to bring parents and children ages 1-3 nine DVDs from the top selling Babyâ€™s Beginnings and King Otis and the Kingdom of Goode series, as well as three CDs, that were newly release on September 22. Additional Babyâ€™s First Word Stories titles will be released in early 2010.
Babyâ€™s First Word Stories is an interactive experience that encourages parents to view the DVDs with their little ones. Together, they will explore one of the most exciting developmental milestones for young children â€“ learning first words and the rich use of language involving those words. Gently paced, with smooth transitions, simple images and minimal camera effects, each DVD starts with words about objects, then builds sentences and stories around them. The easy-to-follow present tense narrative, combined with the repetition of simple â€œkeyâ€ words, ensures that young viewers will be able to grasp basic language at a pace that is just right. Books, toys, CDs and other Babyâ€™s First Word Stories branded products line are currently in development.
Featuring the animated characters Edward, Iggy, Dee Dee and Larry, the six 30-minute DVDs for children age 1+ are â€œHouse,â€ â€œPets,â€ â€œOutside,â€ â€œGet Dressed,â€ â€œWe Goâ€ and â€œNighttime.â€ Each Babyâ€™s First Word Stories DVD includes a bonus printable Activity Guide with eight pages of games and activities that caregivers and children can do together. The Activity Guide also includes viewing guidelines to give parents ideas for how they can interact with their child as they watch together. Suggested retail price for Babyâ€™s First Word Stories is $15.99.
