MonkiSee Learning Made Fun Review and Giveaway – CLOSED

I would love the baby reading kit!

Okay, so you all know that I have three children, age’s eight-months, two, and four, so we are always working on everything from first words, to reading, colors, and numbers. So when Intellectual Baby asked me to review some of their MonkiSee products I was more than happy to oblige. When their amazing package of Sight Words Flashcards, Word Pairs Flashcards, Baby Reading Program DVD Collection, Know Your Monkey and Monkey Likes to Color arrived in the mail I was very excited. I went through the box with my very hands-on husband and we decided that he would be in charge of going over the flashcards with the kids , while I would be in charge of the MonkiSee – ‘See and Say Baby Books’ and the MonkiSee Baby DVD Collection.

Hubby worked with Little Miss and Little Man day after day on the Sight Words Flashcards and Word Pair Flashcards. Each day they seemed to know more and more words by sight. The words are simple words that we all use on a daily basis. Each night we all read the two MonkiSee – ‘See and Say Baby Books’ with the kids together and on their own. The pictures are bright and colorful and the words are simple and repetitive.   
Okay, I am not sure how to tell you how much I LOVE the MonkiSee Baby DVD Collection. The guide is a very helpful how-to and the MonkiSee Baby DVD Collection is fun and engaging. Little Man was raised on Baby Einstein and the thing I love about those movies is how fast they move, so even when Little Man was as young as six-months the DVD’s kept his attention. Well, the MonkiSee Baby DVD Collection is different in that it is not just a collective of words, shapes, or colors put to music, but it actually follows the STORY of Howie and Skip, brother Howler monkeys who learns words, colors, and shapes, all the while spelling out each word. The cute monkeys interact with human children and ask the viewers for assistance which helps keep the kids involved. The rhymes and songs are a lot of fun and engaging and my children love singing along with them. And yes, they even keep Baby miss(my eight-month-old) engaged for a bit. She is still at that age where she does not notice the TV so much, but when the songs come on, she stops what she is doing to watch.

So, the main question is, did this set teach my kids to read? Well, I can say that Little Miss (my two-year-old) is interested in the MonkiSee Baby DVD Collection and enjoys reading the MonkiSee – ‘See and Say Baby Books’ with us, but will not sit still for the flashcards. She listens while Hubby and Little Man go through them, but she stands up, walks around, sits on her hands, and plays. I am hoping that listening is still helping her. Meanwhile, Little Man loves the flashcards and the MonkiSee – ‘See and Say Baby Books’. The MonkiSee – ‘See and Say Baby Books’ are great in that they have a list, in the front of the book, of words that they use throughout the book. Then they repeat words from page to page. For example – one page will not have a picture, but will have the color red, and says “Howie likes the color red.” Then the next page will show a picture of Howie with a red shirt and the page says, “red shirt.”

Now as for the MonkiSee Baby DVD Collection he does not have any interest in Baby’s First Words, which is fine, since it is more for Little Miss and Baby Miss, but he will answer along with All About Colors but not All About Shapes. We have been teaching him shapes for quite some time, so maybe he gets bored since he already knows them?

Anyways, the whole set is AMAZING and I plan to continue using everything.  So if you have a little one, I recommend you looking into this wonderful collection from Intellectual Baby.
