I'm sure most parents have heard about Rock 'N Learn DVDs/CDs. They are an amazing company that make educational DVDs and CDs for kids of all ages. You can even browse by age on their website. In the 2-5 range there are plenty of DVDs that Brayden would like. We received the Dance with Animals DVD.
About Dance with Animals:
Katie Cat and her animated friends, Rex Rooster and Freddy Fox, guide young learners through this fun-filled video, providing lots of laughter along the way. Children unleash their imaginations and dance along with real kids on screen while imitating animals from the farm, forest, and zoo.
When originally developing this DVD, we had in mind a video program that would appeal primarily to preschool children, ages 3 through 5. As we began production, we frequently found that the older siblings of preschool children enjoyed these songs and movements too. So, we made certain to feature some older children, around the ages of 6 and 7. (Younger siblings barely age 2 were highly interested as well.)
Although we expect most of the audience for this video to be in the preschool range, it is a DVD that parents could easily play at home or in a travel setting for children of different ages to enjoy. Besides fun games where children imitate the sounds and movements that animals make, we've included a lot of really spectacular footage of live animals, many in their natural habitats.
Sample of the Dance with Animals:
Brayden LOVES the DVD. He dances and runs around when it's on. He repeats the sounds of the animals that he knows. I also think it will teach him more animal noises.
