I was given the opportunity to test out a learning and play kit from WonderMind Kids. This was the Preschool kit and it was the perfect age appropriateness for Eva. I was asked if I’d like to review this product a little bit before the start of the school year. With Eva starting a Pre-K class this year and with more emphasis on learning I knew it would be something to help her get in the frame of mind for her new class. The lessons in the program were fun and quick and ranged from sea creatures to baking to telling time.
The kit consisted of a few things.
- Wonder and Discovery Theater DVD
- Wonder and Discovery Picture Book
- Discovery Workbook
- Tick-Tock’s Talking Toy Clock
- WonderMind Parenting Guide
Wonder and Discovery Theater DVD
This DVD was quick and entertaining. It was designed to be 20 minutes long and have fun interactive features so that kids do not get bored. Eva liked the different parts of the DVD and wanted to watch it again which is good because rewatching it can reinforce the lessons that she learns from the workbook and picture book as well as the clock toy.
Wonder and Discovery Picture Book
The picture book is a companion of the DVD as well as the workbook. Eva and I read through it and the book comes with stickers so that she can place the stickers into different places in the book. This feature kept her engaged with the content on a consistent level. The picture book also had a very nice story that went along with the Tick Tock Clock toy and explained a good way to learn how to tell time and the importance of doing so.
The Workbook was a way that Eva could apply the information from the lessons that she learned. there were more stickers in this book to help answer the questions in the workbook. Eva had a fun time playing and learning using this Workbook.
Tick-Tock’s Talking Toy Clock
I think the most important part of the set was the learning toy. She wanted to take this with her everywhere when she started playing with it. For the price of the whole set this was one of the better clock toys out there. We have a clock toy from another company and it is incredibly annoying, hard to turn off and goes off for no reason. Not so with this toy.
Official description of the toy: Tick-Tock’s Talking Toy Clock is equipped with a “quiz button.” When your child presses the button, Teegy will ask him or her to set the clock to a certain time. Ask your child to listen to Teegy’s voice carefully, adjust the hands of the clock to the right positions, and check the correct answer. Your child will be absorbed in these activities and have a great time, even while playing alone! Tick-Tock’s Talking Toy Clock is a perfect Educational Toy that helps preschoolers (ages 4-5) start to learn about the concept of time.
