I bought these flashcards for my son when he was about eighteen months old.
He was just learning new words at that time. He was so interested in looking at the animal pictures and also the mirror. It was more like an entertainment for him at that age.
Later, he started learning the names of animals listed in the flashcards. I didn’t have to put much effort on that since he was so much interested in flipping the pages and telling the names.
The first card comes with a mirror to entertain the little ones. I guess most toddlers love to see their own face in a mirror, and my child definitely loved this! There are cards for all alphabets from A to Z each showing an animal picture with its name. They also have counting activities with pictures which help toddlers to learn counting from 1 to 10. Then there are shapes in different colors. So altogether, this product is great for learning alphabets, animal names, counting, shapes and also colors.
The Munchkin flash cards are also very easy to carry and hence you can take them along while travelling. Many times I could engage my son in the flash card activities while we were travelling. Sometimes, he just wanted to start all over again once we finished reading.
At 4.5 years he still loves to flip through the pages and say the animal names and also do the counting activities in the last pages. And now he is trying to explain the cards to his younger brother too! These cards can definitely keep little toddlers busy inside and outside home. They really do a great job in entertaining toddlers and also help them learn so much.
What I found really helpful with the Munchkin flash cards is that the cards are tied together as a single piece, so you don't have to worry about missing any cards from it.
VioletteRose, FlashCards are a great learning tool which helps in all areas of learning. And their use is not restricted to childhood -- they facilitate learning throughout life. Your selections all seem helpful as well as being visually attractive.
Thanks EmmaSRose! I agree, the mirror makes it more attractive for kids.
Thank you ologsinquito! Phonics reading is very helpful for young children, I too read phonics books with my first one.
This is a nice article. I taught my children to read using a phonics-based approach.
