Introduce Your Child to Foreign Languages with Little Pim
Disclosure: The item featured below is a part of my Holiday Gift Guide. I was provided an item in exchange for an honest review. Any and all opinions expressed are my own and have not been influenced.
When I was growing up taking a foreign language was a part of the classes we had to take in order to graduate, back then all you were offered was either Spanish or French and for the most part that wasn’t until you were in high school. Now kids are being introduced to foreign languages at an earlier age as a way to make it easier for the kids to learn, understand and better incorporate those languages. I have friends whose kids are now learning not just Spanish and French but also Chinese and Latin. Now that I have my own kids I wanted to introduce them to a new language as early as possible. I’ve tried other programs but the one that we have enjoyed the most has been our Little Pim products. Our first experience with them was when we reviewed their digital download for Chinese. The kids had a blast learning the new words and exploring the program.
About the Discovery Set:
Our French Discovery Set includes:
- Three (3) videos: Eating and Drinking; Wake Up Smiling; Playtime (digital or DVD)
- Plush Little Pim toy
- Little Pim poster
Starring Little Pim, the lovable panda bear, each video will captivate your child with its combination of animation and real kids.
Each video contains 7 episodes, broken into short 5-minute intervals to keep your child engaged. Your little one will love cuddling with their very own Little Pim plush panda as they watch all 21 episodes together!
My thoughts on the set:
We reviewed the French discovery set. This set is priced at $34.99 for the digital download, $54.99 for the DVD set with the Plush Pim Panda and a poster. We loved it just as much as the first set. I like that the lessons are show in everyday settings so the kids learn better how to apply the words they are learning. The words are shown as well and they get to hear it several times in each lesson. The kids absolutely love their Pim Panda and they take him with them everywhere. Little Pim offers a free demo of any of their eleven languages (Spanish, French, Chinese, German, Italian, Japanese, Arabic, Hebrew, Russian, Portuguese and English -ESL). We also recently discovered Tri-lingual Book and Plush Set as well.
About the book set:
The Trilingual Book & Plush Set includes:
- Four (4) Little Pim books: Colors; Feelings; Animals; & Numbers
- Plush Little Pim panda toy
- Little Pim poster
All 4 books are in English, with words featured in Spanish and French. Little ones will love reading and learning while cuddling with their own soft plush Little Pim panda toy.
The books weave vocabulary into hide-and-seek stories featuring Little Pim and conclude with a helpful review of the words learned. Pronunciation guides for parents are included.
My thoughts on the book set:
My kids really loved the books just as much as the DVDs. The really enjoy learning each word in the three different languages and make it fun and exciting to see who gets it right first. I like that the book is interactive and they can pull up pictures and pull on tabs to learn more and more. It’s a great gift set to get your kids started with a foreign language while having fun.
