TOS Review ~ MonkieSee

MSlogo-new230x120 We received a video and book from MonkiSee a few weeks ago and McKenzie was the prime age for it. MonkiSee offers videos with entertaining music, puppets, real world scenes with 2 silly monkeys for little ones aged 2 months to 4 years old.  The book is cute and includes 29 words that are demonstrated by the Monkeys, Skip & Howie.  The video we received is meant to teach concepts like shapes and body parts.  It also teaches the baby to read the words used on screen during the video. The video includes a 40 word slide show, as well as a Parents Guide.

I thought the book was cute and the video seemed interesting enough.  I did like the slideshow effect and the flashing of the words/images, but my baby normally does not watch T.V. so it didn’t hold her attention for too long.  On the other hand, we  both enjoyed the book and read it several times a day.   However, I not looking to “teach my baby to read”.  Call me old fashion but this product would not be the best match for our family.  If you are looking to “teach your baby to read” then this product may be a perfect fit for your family and a great addition to your library.

The DVD’s normally sell for $24.95, but are on sale for $19.99.  The books are on sale for $9.95, normally $11.95.  A reading kit is also available, that includes all the DVD’s, books and reading cards, for $139.95.
