Even my littlest Monki loves to learn! Afterall, Monki See, Monki Do!

CLOSED

We start teaching them early around here.  Now, I don't want you to get the impression that I sit my infants at the table with a calculator and a pencil and expect them to produce anything, but from birth I have a habit of just doing little things..."Left foot, left foot, left left left!" when I'm washing them in the tub, "Oh, look!  There's a sticker on your hand!"  We pretend things, too.  We have a lot of fun, but we get things done!

I was recently introduced to Intellbaby's MonkieSee line.  It is AMAZING!  I wish I could tell you that after just two weeks on the program, my two boys were reading.  Wouldn't that be a great story??  I can't tell you that, though.  Stinky can't even TALK yet...and Bugsy, while improving rapidly, is still in the "mimicking" stage.  Like I said, though, it's just been two weeks.  I can imagine how quickly they'll pick up the words!

We were sent almost the whole collection for review:


We received 6 DVDs: Baby's First Words, All About Colors, All About Shapes, Memoflix, Memoflix Whole Word Phonics ABCs, and A Guide to Teaching Babies to Read.  The kids LOVE the first three!  They ask for them!  I hear the theme song over...and over...and over... in the car, in the grocery store, in the bathtub... so you know it's catchy!  They sit and watch and repeat words.  They're really learning!  They aren't as thrilled with Memoflix.  They watch for a few minutes and then find something else to do.  I think the Memoflix DVDs would be better with the littler babies, as the speed of it would capture their attention and keep them hooked!  I really like some of the ideas in the parent video!  What a great resource!

The books are really cute too.  The kid really like the bright pictures!  I love that there are lists of words at the back.  Every word used in the book is listed at the back so you can practice them!  I also love that they have the words telling what the pictures will be, then they have the pictures.  It's so neat they way they've developed them, so that the babies learn to associate the words with...well...words, not just the pictures they "always" go with!

We also received four sets of flashcards: All About Me, Colors and Shapes, Around the House, and Word Pairs.  These are Little Lou's favorite part!  (She's 5 and reading like a champ already, so she doesn't really "need" the program.)  Little Lou likes to play teacher and try to make the other kids read.  :)  She gets frustrated when they can't read, but I know eventually they'll get there!

I think my favorite thing about MonkiSee is how it captures the attention of even the youngest Monkies...and I know they're learning!

You can purchase the entire MonkiSee kit here for just $139.95!  You can also purchase the pieces "ala carte" for as little as $9.95 a piece!  This set is well worth the money!

OR

You can win a set of the three MonkiSee DVDs (Baby's First Words, All About Colors and All About Shapes) right here!  That's a $50 value!
(Contest will end and a winner will be drawn March 8, 2011 at 11:59am EST.)

I cooked for my kids (grown), and then spent some time at the computer doing sweeps. I doubt it was as fun as what Stinky did.
