Item description for Brainy Baby - 123's by Brainy Baby...
Learning to count to 20 is fun when the basics are introduced through familiar objects, bright animation, enthusiastic narrators, and energetic kids. Created by early childhood specialists, this Brainy Baby presentation showcases each number from 1 to 20, much like the number of the day in a typical Sesame Street episode. Adult and child narrators count a variety of familiar items, from goldfish crackers to crayons, while on-screen numbers provide visual reinforcement. Several "let's count" segments offer opportunities to practice counting and the "how many" section introduces pre-addition skills by counting objects first by color and then all together. While the program may seem unduly repetitive to adults and older children, it is precisely that repetition that promotes cognitive learning in children ages 2 to 4. --Tami Horiuchi

Doesn't Keep Interest Dec 27, 2006
I bought this for my daughter when she was a toddler. She liked it until about number 11 then would lose interest, even after several times watching. She loved the bloopers and would want me to play that section over and over. Good for entertaining a child for a brief period but I am not sure she really learned counting from watching this.
Repetition and Catchy Tunes! May 30, 2005
I bought this for my daughter's first birthday (and for my 26 month old to enjoy as well). As you can imagine during the birthday party all the kids were running around, yelling, playing, etc.. Well, I popped this video in for some down time, and as soon as it started playing all the kids stopped what they were doing and became afixed to the TV. My husband came out of the kitchen asking what was going on, why was it so quiet. Since than, my kids have watched it several times and my son is now able to count to twenty! THANK YOU-THANK YOU-THANK YOU!!!
A pretty good job teaching numbers 1 to 20 Apr 27, 2005
Let me start by saying that I didn't know that many of the Brainy Baby (BB) videos were almost exact repeats (with a bit more animation and extra things added) as Baby's First Impressions (BFI) videos. Had I known this I wouldn't have bought several of each. BFI Numbers is ok, but I think BB 123's is better. There is more computer animation and the graphics are better. BB counts up to 20 whereas BFI really only goes to 10 (they do recite the numbers up to 20 one time). There is no reason to have both. BB has a more counting (BFI often shows 3 of something and just says "3", while BB shows 3 things and has more counting in order; "1,2,3".
For the number 3, BB says:
"Three" "1,2,3. 3 cups." "1,2,3. 3 pompoms." "1,2,3. 3 cookies." a child then says, "Three" "1,2,3" (this is said when 3 tops are spinning) "3 apes" (3 toy apes are shown) "1,2,3. 3 white mice"
After about 5 numbers there is a review of about 3 numbers (I think they could have reviewed all of them maybe in a mixed up order). They will say, "how many candles do you see?", "can you count the boots?", etc.
I was happy to see that BB kept my favorite part of BFI #'s and that was the jelly beans. You'll see the screen covered in colorful jelly beans and numbers are drawn in the candy.
BB also adds a touch of addition and subtraction. Example: "How many blue frogs? How many red frogs? How many all together?" "Look. Five jacks. Let's take one away. Now there are four."
They have a counting song about counting on your fingers but, honestly, it's not the greatest song or singing voice. At the beginning and the end of this video they have these square foam number puzzle pieces floating in a pool. They are all attatched like a big checkerboard but some of the numbers (like some of the 5's) are upside down. I really don't understand why they did that. Because of these few negative things I can't give it 5 stars. Please read more of my reviews.

We LOVE this video and with three kids in the house someone is asking to watch it everyday! I don't mind because it is happy and makes you want to get up and dance. Within a week our kids were racing to get to see who could get to 20 first and that is great because other videos stop at 10. This concept has also laid the ground work for showing how higher numbers are 'put together'-How awesome is that?! Because 123's has been such a success we went out and got the ABC's video-thanks Brainy Baby!
My 14 month daughter loves this video! Mar 4, 2004
My daughter showed interest in counting whenever I read her numbers book so I borrowed this video from our local library. She loved it. I bought her, her own DVD.
There's toys and children to guide you though counting from 1 to 20!
