My twins enjoy watching TV, so when we do have TV time, I always put on something educational to help them learn as they grow. We were sent two DVDs for review from Brainy Baby; Brainy Baby Shapes and Colors and Brainy Baby Laugh & Learn.
The Shapes and Color DVD is all about learning shapes and colors and our 16 month old twins are just captivated by this video. They love seeing the bright colors and once in a while when you ask them where the square is they will use their tiny little pointing finger to point out the correct shape. The video names the shapes as they show them so the twins can really learn.. some other similar videos I’ve tested out don’t seem to do this and I often wonder how kids can learn if the name and the shape or number don’t match up. I was quite impress with the Brainy Baby DVD.. and I love that the narrator describes each shape and color very clearly.
The Laugh and Learn DVD starts out with babies wearing silly masks and making funny faces, which our twins tried to mimic.. it was so cute! Then it goes on to colors, shapes, matching, guessing game, alphabets and numbers. It was a longer DVD but I just let it play and the twins would watch for a while then do their own thing and then come back to the TV when something caught their attention. The twins seemed to really enjoy this video, much more than any video we have showed them. They love dancing and laughing at the funny faces so it really keeps them entertained for longer than I thought it would.
I’m definitely a big fan of the Brainy Baby DVDs so far. I’ve told everyone we want anything Brainy Baby for them for Christmas. I would definitely recommend it for anyone who has a little one.
