We love Little Pim and just recently reviewed their fun DVDs as one of our “Tried, Tested & True” products. A couple of months ago Little Pim added two new products to their award winning line and I was super excited to try them out.
The Little Pim French Bop CD is a collection of 15 fun and cheerful songs which highlight vocabulary taught on the DVDs – three of which are originals by Milkshake, a popular band on the kid music circuit. My daughter loves her tunes and the ones featured on this disk were cute without being cheesy. Some of those children’s songs can get a tad irritating at times however the French Bop was very pleasant on mamas ears. The CD also contains a 16-page lyrics book which includes an English translation of all of the songs. Musical learning is a fun and easy way for children to pick up a different language and the CD makes it easy to “bring” learning along on car trips!
My daughter’s favourite however, has been the French Word & Phrase Cards – which is surprising as she isn’t the biggest fan of flash cards to start with. She likes to go through each and every card slowly and tries to memorize them for the next round (yes sometimes she goes through them four times in a row). The cards come in a sturdy box and contain sixty cards featuring Little Pim the panda. One side of each card has a beautiful illustration while the other includes a translation with a helpful pronunciation transcription for the parents. I love how each card has an indication on which DVD the particular word or phrase can be found, allowing you to integrate both within the learning process!
If you have already purchased the DVDs these new additions can be purchased separately or as a set with all of the Little Pim products. Please note that the Music CD and Word & Phrase Cards care only available in French or Spanish for the time being.
