Brainy Baby sent us a few items to check out and tell you about:
Animals Flashcards – This is a collection of 36 flash cards of animals from all around the globe. Recommended age is 1-5. (See all of their flashcard selections).
What we liked:
- The pictures were of the real animals and not animated.
- They are heavy duty cards and more durable for little kid handling.
- The back side includes bullet points with facts about the animal so that older children can learn more information regarding this creatures in an easy and understandable
ABCs DVD – A 45 minute DVD that teaches the letters of the alphabet and upper and lower-case letters and the sounds that they make.
What we liked:
- They use real babies, toddlers and preschoolers as well as real object to help teach the concepts
- There is also some fun computer animation involved to make it engaging and exciting
- They repeat the concept over and over again to help reinforce
- The video starts will several repeats of the entire alphabet and then moves into the letter recognition and sounds for each individual letter.
ABCs Book – A hard bound book and shows the upper and lower-case letters with an object that starts with letter sound.
What we liked:
- The bright colors
- The durability
- Using pictures of real animals and objects
- Our baby LOVES this book!
Classical Tunes CD – Classical music from the classical musicians such as Bach, Mozart Vivalidi and More. There are a total of 15 melodies.
What we liked:
- Teaches a love and appreciation for classical music
- Our children loved to listen and it was even something the two of us enjoyed as well!
Talking Hands DVD – 45 minute video teaching 30 words using American Sign Language and Signing Exact English.
What we liked:
- I loved this video! In the past, we have used and taught sign language to communicate with our younger children and this video was very concise, clear and understandable making it easy to learn and easy to continue teaching and reinforcing afterward.
- Again, they use real people and objects to teach the concepts and reinforce by repeating many times over.
- Our baby started signing many of the new signs during the video.
Animal Puzzle Game – 10 double sided 3-piece puzzles. One side was the picture of the animal and the other side was the word naming the animal.
What we liked:
- The pieces are very durable and stiff/thick, making it easy for little hands to work with them.
- Since each of the 10 puzzles is only 3 pieces, it makes for a great learning activity for our baby and our toddler.
- We found that our toddler would help the baby and then repeat the name on the back to her. It was great interaction for the two of them.
