Colorful and entertaining! Jan 18, 2008
I bought these cards for my 14 month old a week ago. She loves looking at both the adorable characters and the children on either side of the cards. Granted, I did not buy these cards thinking that I would teach her shapes. She is a little young for that. However, if they are still in good shape, I will be able to use them to teach shapes in a year or so. These cards are sturdy, made of thicker cardboard. Think board-book strength. Overall, I am very happy with this purchase and so is my baby!
mommies for babies: Don't waste your money Jan 9, 2007
I want to change my rating to 1 star, but it won't let me.
I was looking for something for my infant son. This was not the right product to get. The product description neglected to mention what is written clearly on the box: "12-36 months".
Besides that, they are just plain ok. On one side of the card, it has a picture of a puppet with the shape. The shape has a texture so the baby can feel it. On the other side, there's a baby with a real object that is the same shape. This shape is not textured for baby to feel. For example the triangle card has a purple puppet holding a yellow cloth triangle. On the other side, a little girl is holding two triangular sandwiches. The word triangle is written on both sides. The cards are thick board and seem to be sturdy.
I think it would have been better if the shapes were larger on the first side and the puppets were eliminated all together-this would make the shapes more obvious to a baby who is just being introduced to them.
My son isn't old enough for these flashcards yet, so I'll have to wait and see how he likes them.
Update: My son is now 16 months old, and we don't use these. They're not interesting enough and I don't think I'd have any luck sitting him down and trying to teach to him with these. What were they thinking making these? Toddlers like to have fun. They're not getting ready for the SATs that they're going to sit quietly and learn their shapes with flash cards. If I want to teach my son something, we point things out in books he likes or things around the house or outside.
I guess the real question is what was I thinking when buying these. Don't fall for the trap. You can't build a little baby genius by forcing information down his throat. You probably can't even get the little one to sit long enough to try.
