MonkiSee Baby DVDs are short 30 minute videos that introduce babies to common words, such as the names of body parts, colors, and shapes. I received the first volume that is aimed at children from age 3 months to 2 years.
The video had a very gentle pace and the real life images and puppets that are used in this series certainly captivated my young son (17 months) for a while. My daughter also watched for quite some time and after the video finished she was singing the main song over and over again. There was also a book that accompanied the DVD that had the same words so you could review the words in book format as well.
If you are looking for a nice DVD to entertain your little ones for a short amount of time, then these would certainly fit the bill. As to the ability of this program to teach your young ones to read, I cannot comment. I personally don’t believe in teaching sight words and that is what this program uses.
Price: $24.95 (currently on sale for $19.95)
I received a free MonkiSee Baby DVD for the purposes of this review; no further compensation was received in exchange for my honest opinion.
