First words for baby

If your kids are going to watch TV (and they will), they might as well watch a program with the slogan, “Unleash the Genius in Your Child.” Phonics 4 Babies “Baby’s First Words” is a new DVD starring Mallory Lewis (daughter of “Lamb Chop” creator Shari Lewis) and her puppet Giggles in which they aim to introduce children to their first 300 key words and phrases.

The distinguished reviewers of the DVD were my two sons, 6-month-old Hayden and 3-year-old Ethan. The program immediately caught their attention with its bright colors and singing puppets. The show seemed to cover all the basics—from the alphabet to shapes and numbers and vowel/consonant formation. I particularly liked the emphasis on “please” and “thank you.” The songs were catchy, and Mallory was likable without being overly cheesy (as many adults in children’s shows can be). My son was asking to watch it the next morning which meant it passed the “toddler test!”

My 3-year-old son already knows quite a few words, but I think it will further enhance his vocabulary and help him learn letter recognition. It is a good introduction to words for my 6-month-old, and it will really hit home once he is around 8-9 months old. I still have a couple of those songs stuck in my head—I have to admit, they are pretty catchy.

Phonics 4 Babies “Baby’s First Words” release date is set for September 25th is currently available for pre-order at Best Buy for $12.95. Other retailers include Amazon, Wal-Mart and Circuit City.

We had to leave early when got fussy but you were so sweet about him starting to cry, lamb chop spoke to him a bit and we were thrilled.
